    The **** you've endured? Try supporting a non-huge club. My club has a current squad size of about 12, has just been sent down to League One via a penalty awarded for a dive, and all our players are free to leave for nothing due to a relegation clause in their contract.

    And we've just been taken over by Louis Tomlinson.

    "The **** I've endured"... From an Arsenal fan... Sigh.
    Condolences. You lot have come a long way from one Gilberto run from knocking us out of the league cup. No football fan should have to endure been associated with a that annoying prick. But we've got Pier Morgan.......

    Nope giroud replaced rvp, podolski replaced gervinho and cazorla put rosicky to the bench. Simple as that. Dress it up however you want but that's what happened
    Like I said, it's too complex for you to grasp. But it's okay. It really is.

    No it's just you trying to turn something simple in to something more complex.

    How do you play Ozil in a 442?
    Play him as the box to box midfielder for the lols

    His price is completely ****ing irrelevant we're talking about his

    Suarez and higuain would of had giroud sat on the bench don't kid yourself otherwise. We would play the same formation because wenger isn't going to sign ozil to play 4-4-2 is he for **** sake.

    How many chances did giroud miss vs city? Chelsea? Utd?

    Giroud also came out in the January window saying he didn't want another striker signed so that kills your point there

    I'm really happy for his link up play for the goal at Norwich and his speculative back heel but id probably be happier knowing that he didn't fail it 100 times before it came off
    Credentials to play for Arsenal? 22 goals and 9 assists sound decent enough to me. I don't think Giroud should lead the line for us as our main striker he's rotation and an alternative option upfront.

    We've used 4-4-2 this season when Ozil was in the team, most notably the FA Cup final. Wenger brought on Sanogo for Poldi. Ozil was shifted to the left and then we played 4-4-2 that where Ozil fit in. As we've seen with Germany Ozil can play on the left or right.

    Fair enough Giroud said that in Jan, he gave justification for that Theo could help out, How was he suppose to know Theo was going to get injured.

    I agree Giroud isn't clinical but the problems we faced in those games went beyond Giroud. Our midfield and defence was poor. More often or not Giroud flicks come off

    It's like when Torres got 20 goals 2 years ago he was still ****. Judge with your eyes. The level of striker we should have gets 35-40 goals last year not 22. The danger with this 22 goals 9 assists is decent enough statistic is it doesn't tell you just how **** he's been out on the pitch and how he can consistently have 5-6 games of utter ****. Also the fact he can't perform at all vs any competent opposition.

    Also ozil can't play on the left or right of a 4-4-2 consistently. He's a liability defensively and barely even affects the game.

    Don't be naive giroud purely said theo can help to look out for himself because theo is always going to start on the right.

    More often than not his flicks don't come off don't kid yourself his pass completion is ****ing awful especially in the final 3rd

    I don't think people were blaming giroud for the team conceding 5+ goals but for not being prolific in front of goal. Look at Liverpool..

    **** defence but it didnt matter because their attack was sooo good the opposition barely had time to attack their defence meaning they could just out score their opponents. Ideally if we had a striker like Suarez we could of brought the games back a bit but because we were not potent in attack we kept getting screwed when defenesif and lookin limp as **** when attacking meaning opposition teams could just play a high line and push up.

    Yes he clearly is rvps replacement. How anyone could argue that simple logic is beyond me.

    No he doesn't do it where it matters. 3 goals in 18 big games :-)

    Constant loss of possession

    Constant missing of chances

    Absolutely awful pass completion rate in the final third

    Regularly messes attacks up

    Always gets dispossessed


    The one attacking stat you picked he wins on by about 2 key passes with 1000 minutes played more than the other two

    A nice graph to show the downgrade :-)

    Ross Mccormack is going to Fulham for £11m. £10m for Giroud was an absolute steal in comparison even if he isn't quite the standard we need to be on top again.

    This is why I prefer buying foreign than British at times. Ross McCormack is now the 8th most expensive British striker in history behind Carroll, Rooney, Bent, Shearer, Fletcher, Sturridge & Fowler. Let's not forget Sturridge was £12M, so Liverpool got a bargain. Leeds are laughing all the way to the bank.

    chelsea reach the champions league semi final and could have grabbed the league with eto, ba and torres leading the line. giroud still scores only 3 less than all of them combined in the PL. inb4 including champions league because look at the state of chelseas group + the fact they got 4 extra games.

    obvs there are better strikers but it aint the worst if giroud is there next season with ample rotation options.

    we will never have a better team than city or chelsea but we will constantly aim for fourth and keep the bank of england happy while maintaining our co-efficient in europe by only reaching the last 16 but never challenging like the almighty oil clubs of our time. wenger is an incompetent manager with no passion who is a voyeur and a specialist in failure and his dinosaur tactics will never match up to the chosen one. our best players will leave us on a seasonly basis because they finally see the light in that all other clubs in the premier league have more ambition than than the arsenal, that is why both our previous captains are at our competitors and we have the likes of arteta donning the captains armband.

    i'm not really sure on how to reassure an opposition fan but i think that should do it.

    Good.

    67% overall pass completion is a ****ing joke. How anyone can defend his stupid flicks with that statistic is hilarious. You're the guy who defended the **** arteta produced as well so it doesn't surprise me
