    no. and every striker missess chances. Giroud is a very good player.. its not his fault that ppl compare him with henry and rvp and expect him to be same like them. for 10m, he is an absolute steal. mind it, he is still one of the best striker in premier league.

    Alexis : 41 Games (3 Off Bench) - 17 Goals - 11 Assists
    Giroud: 53 (20 off Bench) - 24 Goals - 6 Assists

    Although you will still call it shit so why am I bothering to post these :p

    euros wont be won by a single player. he always gives his cent percent, its not his fault if he lacks in some aspect.. talent is natural.

    He did not play and France could not score

    Has 8 goals in his last 6 matches :p Who else will score for them? They should have won today, after all Giroud did not play

    Coquelin gives it his all though, I can dig up their individual stats if you want as a comparison of just how good Coquelin is. His injury did not help when he was turning into a monster

    Arsenal fans are spoiled by Henry and RVP and they want Giroud to be like them which is not possible.. Talent is something natural.

    Giroud is a very good player.. above all, he is a team player unlike sanchez who will dribble and dribble and take on whole team rather than passing it someone.. not saying sanchez is bad but every player has his own positives and negatives.


    over last 4 years, since giroud signed for arsenal, only aguero has better record than him..and right now, he is easily among top 5 strikers in premier league..vardy, kane, costa (even though he is better than costa as well).. who else is better than him in epl ?

    he even scored double the goals of martial and look at united.. getting wet over martial.. scored more than rooney in last three seasons but still he is crap

    i think he gets way too much criticism.. i know arsenal need another striker but its not giroud fault. its wengers fault for not addressing the issue. not one striker can carry the whole team and win league singlehandedly..

    last season costa had hazard.. before aguero had jovetic and negredo.. but here at arsenal they expect giroud to bang 40 goals and lead arsenal to title single handedly.

    you need at least two strikers with 20+ goals to win league..and this is wengers fault. all blame goes on him.

    In those games where we want to really kill off opposition attacks both of these two should play, would have such a aggressive midfield

    Coquelin's good, but Xhaka's better. Coquelin has zero passing range.

    Xhaka is a better attacker for sure, Coquelin is the better defender. Makelele had no passing range but was damn good at what he did. Coquelin is a work horse

    Leicester had Vardy and?
    Costa and Hazard? Well, then we have Giroud and Sanchez, Harzard isn't a striker.

    Giroud went 15 games without a goal, man. 15 games. How many strikers do that?

    yeah his passing is bit weak but considering the market prices, he is another steal.

    would easily cost you above 20-25m in this current market

    Agree, Coquelin's a good squad option.

    Walcott's probably the biggest issue in the squad though, and you used to like him, do you still like him after what he did 2nd half of the season?

    Neither did Kane two seasons ago. Yet they've had individual seasons better than Giroud's ever had

    mahrez and vardy.. and Leicester won league with 81 points which doesnt happen normally.

    every player has his ups and down.. considering giroud scored 24 despite going 15 games without a goal makes his record even better. He is a confident player.. once he loses confident, he can really struggle. but overall he is a vwry good striker.

    Come on man, 24 includes all competitions.

    He scored 16 in the league, and that's with 3 in one game against Villa who were already relegated. Remove that and he got 13 in 37 league games, with 10 of those league games being scoreless in a row where we lost the league

    Giroud gets a lot of assists and does a lot of defensive work too which is his undoing

    Why should a striker be making clearances? Our defence is so incompetent at times he has to go and help back. The rest of these guys have only one role, to attack

    Btw, I said in other thread I don't want Lukaku or Morata, try someone else like Kane

    Even Vardy's goals dried up after teams started sitting back tbh

    Also, Morata played as a winger most of the games, so again you're not even comparing the same position
    28 clearances or whatever in 38 games, is mostly from corners, of course he's tall so he clears them. Most strikers help defend corners

    If he did not have defensive responsibilities or take it upon himself to work for them team, he would be potent

    Added extra defensive stats in this to prove my point, his attack suffers because of our incompetent back line in general where he sees the need to help them at every opportunity

    The only person with worse goals scored per 90 is a winger.

    Btw, don't care about goals from set pieces, they count as a goal, same as everything else. All this is proving is what I said, he contributes less goals.

    And his clearances again, are from corners, which fair play, he does help clear well.

    Does defending mean he can't score for 15 games in a row for some reason, man?

    Anyway, forget it, you obviously like Giroud a lot, I don't mind him as second choice, but we need a better striker

    Also, France can do better, if they have Griezmann as striker, fluid front 3, fast, counter attacking football their team is good at, and they don't have to see Giroud stick out his tongue after missing another sitter. Win win
