    So who do you actually have that can play up front now?

    An inconsistent Giroud and an injury prone Walcott?

    Giroud (still better than Benteke)
    Walcott
    Sanchez
    Campbell

    Very makeshift...

    Firstly, Benteke > Giroud (I know you're bitter but don't be an idiot...)
    Secondly, neither Walcott or Sanchez are natural strikers - they clearly aren't bad in the slightest but you really needed to buy a proper striker and for a club of your stature, frankly it's an embarrassment that you didn't.

    Benteke is nothing special and nor is Giroud, I rate him above Benteke for his all round play.

    ...do you understand what makeshift means?

    Benteke has 43 goals in 93 appearances in the PL.
    Giroud has 42 goals in 101 appearances in the PL.

    I agree that those are similar, however when you consider that 89 of Benteke's apps were for an Aston Villa side frequently battling relegation, whereas all of Giroud's apps were for a consistently top 4 finishing Arsenal, the former is the clear superior

    Maybe you should ask your own manager - you've needed a striker for years...

    His OVR has gone up to 87 though - the same as Aguero.
    I don't think I'd be complaining if I were you....

    It's clear FIFA themselves don't take them seriously if Özil is 87

    Giroud is slightly better than Benteke for me. Probably about even in terms of finishing but Giroud's all-round play is better.

    If Arsene had wanted Benteke (which he would have if Benteke is so much better), he would've obviously come to us over Liverpool without a doubt.

    You say that but (as mentioned in my previous post) Benteke has a better goalscoring record, in addition to actually creating more goalscoring opportunities last season than Giroud.
    When you factor in that Giroud plays for a vastly superior side to Villa who score more goals and create more chances, i think my point speaks for itself.

    Benteke would've obviously chosen Arsenal over Liverpool, but as usual Wenger didn't buy a striker when you've obviously been in need of one for a very long time.

    Put Benteke in a consistently top 4 team and I'm fairly sure his goals tally won't improve, he is a battering ram and Villa, particularly under Sherwood played to that. He wouldn't suit a top 4 team.

    Perhaps not but you can't say that for sure.
    What we do know for a fact is that a consistently bottom half team striker has a better ratio than a consistently top 4 team striker.

    Maybe his goals wouldn't increase, maybe they would. You can of course voice your opinion but the stats are clear to put Benteke ahead of Giroud as far as I can see.

    If anything Arsenal are the one team who needs the opposite of Giroud(aka not Benteke)

    They could do with Sturridge or Lukaku
