    Just thought I'd throw this stat out there; this season Giroud has scored every 109 minutes, Kane has scored every 106 minutes (helped largely by goals in the Europa League). So why is one considered the brightest hope of English football whilst the other is considered a slightly above average striker?

    Sure, kane has scored against big teams this year, but Giroud is starting to do that too (Liverpool, United, City)
    Because one is 21 while the other is 28. I agree in the sense that Giroud should be getting more praise though. He's having a good season.

    Because Giroud isn't English.

    Kane is 21 and Giroud is 28 and the former has potential to improve whereas the latter is at his peak. But I think the criticism on Giroud has been harsh, he has proved his critics wrong and has responded very well especially after the Monaco game.
    Yes one is obviously much younger than the other, but even when Giroud is scoring every game he isn't getting as much credit as he deserves imo

    Really hope he shows up and performs against Monaco

    He's having a very good season, gets an injury that most professionals would take 3 months to recover from and comes back after 2 months (pretty outstanding tbh), and has scored at close to a goal a game in the league since.

    Yeah and i completely agree. He has a tough mentality to come back from injury and all the criticism of not being an elite striker that is required at Arsenal, he's on fire and is delivering the goods for Arsenal. He could have a big say in the midweek game against Monaco.

    Typical *****.
    IKR. Bigging themselves up when they beat us. Turns out Eriksen scoring 87th minute winners against ****e teams can't get you into the Champions League after all.

    Indeed, Wenger still wants to bring in someone who can have the same impact as Vieira or Petit.

    He told beIN SPORTS: "I'm happy with the signings but we still need a physical presence with prodigious ability like Vieira or Petit."
    Basically, that ^ .

    Bradford would be plucky and have the whole underdog story to fuel them. Reading are just unloved by everyone, and they couldn't even beat us from 4-0 up. I would rather Reading.
