Arsenal are relying too heavily on Olivier Giroud

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

It is fairly safe to say that Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud is not exactly the most well-liked player in the Barclays Premier League. Some of the Frenchman's criticism is justified (he does miss his fair chances in front of goal), some is not (Giroud has been labeled a "donkey" by many); however, when looking into the statistics, the striker certainly holds his own against other players in his position that cost three times the reported £9.

Chelsea beat the Arsenal yesterday 1-0 with a goal from Diego Costa in what was arguably our performance of the season.
Much has been said and written about the game already but no one can deny the facts. Chelsea were well on top of Arsenal with Cesc Fabregas bossing the midfield BEFORE Per Mertersacker was sent off.

We desperately need another striker and we need him by January's end. He doesn't have to be a Higuain or a Cavani (though either would be dreamy), we just need someone to allow Giroud some time in the sun.

The injury to Welbeck is very bad news as he was signed with this very position in mind.

It was clear right from the off that the crowd were fully tinselled up, had taken aboard one or two extra pre-matchers, all swallowed down by a festive Crème de Menthe chaser.

Perfect scene for the final game before Christmas, featuring the Bookies' two favourites for the title.

A bit of cat and mouse from both sides during the opening gambits, and perhaps the casual observer may have sensed a long evening ahead.

After the fantastic victory midweek and the joy which emanated around the Arsenal world a win today would make Xmas shopping just that bit more fun. Unfortunately this Arsenal team is quirky last time we won 3-0 away (Swansea) we lost the next 1-5! This time I expect the 3-0 to precipitate a long run of success

Fortunately Villa are not yet at the level of Bayern Munich but they are improving under Remi Garde who has taken on a huge challenge; a job which if he takes them down will be money for nothing and let's face it, Villa are in dire straits.

Olivier Giroud is giving Arsenal a huge return on investment

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Olivier Giroud may be the most polarizing player in the Premier League. Despite the fact that the Frenchman has scored the second-most goals in the prestigious league since the start of the 2013-14 season, behind only Sergio Agüero, Giroud has his fair share of detractors. The Arsenal striker's statistics are even more impressive considering that the North London club reportedly paid just £9.

Arsenal must overcome their own nature if they’re to claim the Premier League

For all the brilliance Arsenal have produced throughout the Premier League season, their current situation seems to be a bit of a shemozzle a wonderful mess that has resulted from their own failures, both on and off the field. And the situation is not even a surprise, because over the past decade or so, it has always been like that for Arsenal, with each ambitious yet realistic title challenge ending with an age-old feeling of what could have been.

North London Derby reaction: Olivier Giroud proves once again why he won't win the title for Arsenal - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

The North London derby on Sunday between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur was, to the neutral viewer, a real treat. The game was played at a very good pace throughout, and even though the home side weren't at their absolute best, Spurs produced a truly fantastic display.

Who would you pick for a combined Arsenal/Spurs Eleven?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

One of the ways I assess how we will fare against a team is to play the game "how many of their side would get a start in our first eleven?", I am sure you do the same. Based upon this I was very doubtful midweek I would have to say that all 11 BM players were better in their positions than our chaps, even Sanchez and Ozil would struggle to play for BM's first choice 11, though they would certainly get on the bench.

Arsenal went to Swansea determined to keep their Premier League hopes alive, and yet filled with a certain tremulation at meeting a club who had outclassed and outplayed them twice last season.

As it turned out, one man who could not wait to get on to the pitch to show what he is made of was Joel 'Gimme a chance ' Campbell, as he chomped at the bit to make his career at Arsenal lift off, rather than warm his ass on the bench.

It's a funny old game, football, ain't it? as someone famous once said. And that is not the half of it.

During the first part of the game against the Hornets, Arsenal played like a light bulb that is undecided if its day is done, or not, and flickers indecisively between light and shade.

One minute the Gunners were brilliant, and the next they were as gormless as any Sunday League team down the Marshes before the traditional booze up, and, frankly, with a better forward Watford could have been one or two goals up in the first half, and as it was, the feller sitting in Row Z had stinging hands parrying the ball as he became the target for the ball rather than the net.

If social media were to run football Olivier Giroud would have long been consigned to the knackers yard, Jurgen Klopp would have been beatified by now and Mehmet Durakovic would have a job for life at Selangor.

The last few years have been pretty barren by Selangor standards as they have seen the likes of Kelantan and Johor Darul Tazim take their turn in dominating Malaysian club football.
