Giroud

So, how match winning performances, screaming goals, great assists, etc. will it take before those of you slagging off Giroud put your hands up and admit you were wrong?

Wonderful team player who makes this team better when he plays ...

And still under-rated for his all round game.

He offers something different, is direct and incisive. He's no TH14 but he was certainly missed when he wasn't there. He looks to be forming a partnership with Danny W which could be fruitful. He played well with Lucas P too last season. If Mesut O is used correctly when he returns then the Giroudster could be on the end of a lot more passes as he seems to find room in penalty areas.

His first goal was quality and if we played to those strengths I would happily admit I was wrong as that is what he should/could excel at but that is down to the managers insistance of this dull passing game that rarely goes anywhere.

What`s all this Danny W,Lucas P,Mesut O? It`s like an expose in the News of the World regarding a sex scandal.

For every Newcastle there's too many Stokes. Fact.

Always said he seems to have more of an impact from the bench.

Fact is, for that type of striker, there's better out there.

And another thing, his record outside London is abysmal.

I did laugh when he gave the battlecry after the Stoke game/before Newcastle, he must have thought he played well on the day to say all that.

Yep was atrocious, yet again up there and away from home outside the M25. Had a great chance at 1-0 but ballsed it up. Not to my surprise might I add.

What? You asked the question and some gave their opinions. You think one thing, others think another.

I think that if you're not prepared to admit you were wrong now, you never will.

Some things are debatable (like Wenger). This one has been proven time and again by goals, assists and performances.

You think he's crap. The vast majority disagree with you. Popular player with Arsenal fans and rightly so.

Actually " majority" for me is false assumption. A lot that I know of think he's ok to have as a second striker, not main striker.
I don't think he's 'crap' but he's highly infuriating, as many missed chances and anonymous away performances have shown.

Giroud is a top class player. He fits the role perfectly. All we need is the defenders t get their sh*t together which will allow the midfield to relax and do their thaang and give Giroud the support he needs to, in turn, play the scorer/provider multi-role he can. It's a team game fellas and hopefully Wenger is the man to mould them.
