    We really need to get Henry in as a striker coach.
    Theo's finishing really improved after we had Henry in on loan, Ox and Giroud could both do with the same sort of help.

    Exactly - Giroud is our best striker and that says a lot. Someone of Girouds quality is Arsenals best striker - that's shocking.

    Would Giroud get into the Chelsea, City or Liverpool side (as a first choice striker)?

    Giroud was arguably our best player today so why has the hate started so fast?

    He might have gotten into Chelsea's last year. Better than Torres and Demba Ba at least.

    Ramsey is joint top scorer in the league so far. 2 in 2 is not bad :yy:

    Giroud isn't of the quality you would expect of an first choice Arsenal striker. But for whatever reason we haven't been able to get anyone better. So just have to work with it and play to his strengths.

    I'd probably have taken a draw before kick off tbh...

    For sure. I don't know why some people expected more!

    Then again we really should have had the 3 points though

    wilshere is just not good enough, don't know why AW still has so much faith in him, all he does is run like a headless chicken, literally. All he does is just pass the ball to someone at the edge of the area then run aimlessly into the area in hope that the ball somehow find its way back to him.

    Who said I'm hating? If anything - this game proves the point that I've always stood by.

    Giroud saved our ass today - and like I said he's the perfect impact sub. He came on vs city and scored a screamer, he came on today and saved us.

    What we need is a ST that's better than Giroud, and have Giroud as a backup. That gives us a plan A, B & C!

    We can't win much if our strike force doesn't improve - and you know it

    Mate, this year he wouldn't even get into Burnley's squad as first choice.

    Tbh even if we had Falcao up top we'd still be mauled by the other top sides because of how many mistakes we've been making in midfield. Everyone is saying we're lacking in the striker department and how "stacked" we are in midfield but our midfield so far has been atrocious and that's including Ramsey :/

    Ofcourse I wan't another striker but I think we can still put out better performances if we cut out these mistakes and the midfield give more delivery (which there was none of at all in the first half)

    At the end of the day I'd say this is a good result for us. Goodison is far from an easy 3 points so I'm glad we managed to walk away with one. Very poor performance and it's the same achilles as last season so I'm not exactly optimistic about this season. 4th is still looking likely but I'm very happy we managed to see of a result today even after being 2 down. I don't think Liverpool will have an easy ride to 3rd so can see it being neck and neck between us.

    I'm expecting 8 points from Everton and UTD now and that already puts us 6 points ahead of where we were last season. An absolute dream would be to get a point at both the Ethiad and the Bridge this season but that would be pushing it. One can hope :moon:
    We could have the brazil team of 1970, the invincibles and the 2008 barca side rolled into one and turn up at the bridge and still wouldn't get anything. We're cursed.

    Yup I agree. Attacking wise we don't have a problem in midfield. We need someone to partner Ramsey, and we need another CB. Flamini & Arteta will single handedly loose us a few games this season - because they'll fail to break down counters etc.

    We need a huge ****ing anchor in the middle who screams NOT TOOOODAAAYY and breaks moves up. Someone pacey and frikking hench.

    Here's what we need (in order of priority)

    CDM
    CB
    ST

    CDM & CB should be garunteed - a striker would be just orgasmic

    Really.

    Why should we be worried lmao, last time we went there it was a draw and they looked fragile against Newcastle. Not that it has anything to do with comment but I usually expect the ADM when I get in here.
