    Except Mandzukic satisfied all of your criteria, absolute tragedy we didn't get him.
    We have or had Giroud at the the time. They're similar players. The transfer wouldn't make much sense

    Mandzukic, Diego Costa, Balotelli and Immobile were all available in this window. All better than Giroud.

    Immobile and Balotelli are not upgrades

    Mandzukic is a significant upgrade on Giroud. You clearly haven't watched him play that often.

    Better in all departments...finishing, heading, holding the ball up, link up play etc.

    Similar player but much better at the same stuff.

    think it was sevchenko who made a really good point about balo.

    all it takes is a bit of man marking and rough tackling to frustrate him, loses his cool and will start walking around the pitch offering 0% workrate.

    mandzukic - marginal.

    immobile - lol just no.

    diego costa was never going to come to Arsenal.

    anyways i'm talking about now. list me some players available now.

    Agree with you on all counts bar Mandzukic. We really should've tried to get Lukaku, don't think Chelsea were ever going to let us have him though.

    i disagree.

    they are extremely similar players. only difference is probably he's a better finisher even then i don't know how you can measure that. but hey.
