    He's got similar numbers to giroud is giroud consistent?
    i wouldn't call them too similar, but it depends what you mean by similar i guess
    higuain's numbers are generally better, and he usually doesn't even play as many games as giroud
    and i'm not just talking about goals, it's assists too

    then again, i see a lot more of giroud, therefore i see a lot more of him when he isn't playing well, and i'll only really hear good things about higuin
    therefore i guess i have maybe developed a bias against giroud on that basis

    he is not by all means a bad striker - he would have a solid season at a mid tabled team, or maybe one higher like everton
    but i just know arsenal could do with more quality up front
    the problem is who you they could get since benzema won't happen unless madrid buy suarez/aguero

    P.S: i really need to learn how to spell higuain...

    Higuain is a consistent goalscorer. I read that Messi aside, he had the best goals to minutes ratio in Liga for the period that he played there. I'll try and find the stat. His goals to appearances ratio is skewed as well because of how many times he came off the bench for Madrid.
    Higuain is the king of missing sitters like no one else

    Plenty of mediocre players have had great goals to minutes ratios and I'm guessing it's a lot easier for him to come on for a team that destroys teams for fun I've got a funny feeling his goals to minutes isnt so impressive now he's the main man at napoli

    here ya go mate. The initial stat I gave to you was wrong/unproven it seems but here's a decent article on my mate pipita. He's an A game thoroughbred champion and you'd be moronic to believe otherwise. King of missing sitters, lol, he has the second best shots to goals ratio after Messi. You sound so dumb it's like you're trolling.

    Yeah Higuain is very hot and cold. Probably an improvement on Giroud though, has more pace at least but I can still see why Wenger didn't go for him.

    Didn't realise how many assists Benzema racks up every year though. It's quite ridiculous for a striker to be getting 15-20 assists a season regularly.

    Aguero/Suarez are so much better than higuain it'd make your head spin

    Arsenal struggled to create chances last year and I think it's fair to say ozil is a bigger upgrade on cazorla than higuain is to giroud

    Yea the king of missing sitters you've probably barely watched him though so it's hard to take you seriously

    He's what we in football call a big game bottler was painful to see how many games he cost madrid in the champions league/classicos you've probably barely watched him though so i probably won't reply to you anymore and will converse with the more knowledgable people in here

    definitely, they're on such a higher level

    suarez>aguero>>>>>>>>>>>higuain> giroud

    (i know >>>>>>>>> doesn't mean much greater than, but it was just to make a point )

    true, ozil is a good upgrade, but it is clear that you needed a striker more than a creator
    that is why people don't understand the logic of forking out 40m for a creative midfielder instead of going for a striker

    Giroud is a ridiculously good looking man and you can't keep that sort of talent on the bench

    i am sticking to my opinion; i believe higuain to be better than giroud
    but as i said, i barely see higuain play and i am more likely to see bad performances by giroud.

    but tbh, i mainly didn't wanna cause an argument and de-rail the arsenal thread since i've done that a lot recently

    that makes no sense

    how can a creative midfielder win you a title but not a striker?
    you obviously need both, but even if you create the best chances in the world, without a striker you wont score
    if you have "meh" creation, with a world class striker, they can score out of nothing

    in all honesty, it's a defence that wins you a title

    Why do people call it a crumble? We lost the games we should have and they all happened to be close to each other on the fixture list

    And the "big away games" were all 12:45 kick-offs. Meanwhile Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea's games at the Emirates kicked off at 17:30, 17:30 and 20:00

    There's a little part of me that thinks the same but I don't want him to go. Ever since I was born Arsene has been the manager of The Arsenal. I love that guy. I will be very sad the day he leaves.
