    Lacazette would be better in the short term too. He has all the attributes to succeed in PL football, and is a better player than Benteke all round. And you don't make signings, not in the least £25m signings like Benteke and Lacazette, for the short term.

    Liverpool signed Adam Lallana this summer (debatable whether he was a back up to, or the first choice ahead of, Xherdan Shaqiri) and injuries meant that we immediately lost the value of his 'PL readiness', ie there's no point putting value in the 'PL experience' myth, because moving from a smaller club to a bigger club is can be just as big a change in playing style as it is across leagues. If a foreign player doesn't immediately succeed, it can more often be put down to being played in the wrong system (eg Suarez under Dalglish) or to other factors like injury, playing in a losing team etc, rather than 'not being ready for PL football'.

    Lacazette is a rapid, physical beast of a striker who's excellent on the counter. I see no reason why he would struggle to adapt to the quicker transitions of this league (actually he'd probably thrive, just as Torres, Aguero, Costa did).

    So this PL experience thing is, as previously stated, a giant myth.
    I get where you're coming from, but he hasn't exactly proven himself against the big teams in France either. You can say it's a myth, but a lot of players still take a seasom to adapt, bar a few rare example.

    I don't think it matters either way, Lacazette isn't going to leave anyway as he has already said 10 times. We need a striker for next season (as do you). And like I've said, we all know Wengs would play him out on the wing anyway, we need an out and out physical goalscorer who can't play on the wing, Benteke is the main option there imo.

    If Lacazette continues playing at this level next season then I'd take him in a heartbeat, but as it is the only thing I can see happenning is Wengs playing him out of position to accomodate Giroud

    Just that it's madness that United could conceivably finish third in the PL in spite of being so woeful for large parts of the season.
    I don't see ut happening, and you're clearly forgetting how **** we were before Christmas. Tbh only Chelsea haven't been complete **** out of the top 6

    Goals are goals. And Lacazette has 23 non penalty goals this season. Goals against big teams are usually more reliant on the quality of one's team, than the quality of the striker, see Luis Suarez at Liverpool, then Barcelona.

    Yes, and a lot of players from British clubs take longer to adapt to a big club/never adapt as well. Wenger wouldn't play him on the wing. He's a striker. He doesn't have the work rate to play on the wing for you. The only reason that Welbeck is played on the wing is because he's **** up front. I've already had a discussion Lacazette's career progression and why he's a great bet to continue scoring heavily for the rest of the decade, so there's no 'if he continues playing at this level' necessary.

    We don't need another "flat track bully" we need a sttiker who'll score against the bug teams and 5-9. Maybe Lacazette could be that guy, but im certain Benteke would.

    As I've already said, hr isn't going anywhere so why is it even up for discussion?

    Wenger being as likeable as always, legit blaming the other team for getting a result against his. It's sad.

    (Original post by leinad2012)
    But there are so many counterexamples.

    Di Maria, Falcao, Jo, Shevchenko, Verone, even Robihno. These players are all forgotten about
    Di Maria and Falcao only just joined the PL. WTF?

    You're not gonna have every player have amazing form for every club they join. Players struggle in Russia too, some don't. It happens.

    We can't afford to have a new striker who flops in their first season, we need someone who's going to bang in 20 in their first season, which is why I included them
