Arsenal star says Giroud will get Arsenal train chugging!!

It has been a slow burner for Arsenal this season, with our momentum in the Premier League similar to the way an old steam train used to build up speed. And the Gunners have also had a few false starts, with Arsene Wenger and the players having to relight the burners and start shoveling coal again, but hopefully Arsenal are now getting up to speed and are about to put a serious run of good form and results together.

Aaron Ramsey certainly hopes and thinks so, and the Welshman also reckons that the return of our big French striker to the squad will play a big part in making sure that the three good performances against Man United, Borussia Dortmund and West Brom is not another false start, as an Arsenal.com report explains.

Rambo said, “Even though there was pressure, we played well against Man United and just built on that. We won in midweek against Dortmund and carried on and got back to winning ways in the league, so hopefully we can continue this run now.

“It was important to build on midweek and keep this run going and it is nice to win again. It was never going to be easy with the quick turnaround but we did well, we dug in and got the three points.

“It is nice to have him back in the squad. He holds the ball up well, he links play and he is dangerous as well so we are delighted to have him back.”

Giroud has had plenty of stick from Arsenal fans and the football media since his transfer to Arsenal from Montpellier a couple of years ago, mainly for his lack of goals. But a big part of the centre forward’s game is his link play and the way he can hold off defenders with his strength and play his team mates in with a very good touch, pass of fancy flick.

Ramsey was one of the main beneficiaries of that last season, with a lot of his goals coming from Giroud’s good work, so it is no surprise to hear that he is pleased to have the big man back. He got quite a few more chances yesterday and now we have the added threat of serious pace on both flanks, with Welbeck, Walcott, Alexis and the Ox. THat should mean that Giroud’s own lack of pace is even less of an issue and should see the Gunners go goal crazy.

Giroud also plays a big part in defending corners and free kicks and with Koscielny now back and Debuchy close, the Gunners will be much tighter at the one end while scoring more at the other. So will the return of Giroud coincide with Arsenal steaming up the Premier League table?

      klopp said that he is flattered to be on arsenal fans’ wishlist, but he thinks we have one of the best managers in the world and that after their loss to us he can’t see us wanting him still.´

      cool it at least til summer. to want a manager gone half way in the season is suicide.

      @galen I want you to go back in time,
      right about 9 years ago when
      the trophy drought started
      and see that Arsenal fans were
      behind Arsene. Then see that
      Dortmund fans have not gone
      almost a decade without a
      trophy, so when we say
      Wenger Out, its not that we
      are fickle but we are doing the
      same thing the Dortmund fans
      would if things would go on
      like this 9 years.

      Now all we need is Özil as well, and we’re good to go for a stable run for the 4th. But first, replace Welbeck with Podolski!!!!

    What we got with girouh and welz are different options different styl of play last yr we didn’t have that…trust me when Walcott and ozil come bk wenger wont have a choice but to play them all…right side thats Walcott left side thats Sanchez up front welz or girouh midfield is our problem…Wilshire and ramsey should fight for thT box to box and ozil and carzola should fight for that cam…..this team have so much talented players we just need a manager to take advantage of it…..

    Even if Giroud doesn’t score as much as we want, the rest of the team plays better when he plays, Welbeck just doesn’t offer our other players enough and he hasn’t got the finishing to make up for that. It is great to have two strikers who can offer something different, not to mention Sanchez and Walcott; if we can sort the defensive side of it out and Rambo to start singing again then we’re golden.

      Forget the McCarthy part and replace with Sissoko and De Jong to compete alongside Wilshere and Rmasey

    “he links play and he is dangerous as well so we are delighted to have him back.”

    He links play alright, but I wouldn’t exactly say he’s “dangerous”.

    Hmm. Interesting who we could get in the Champions League Round of 16.

    Group A: Atletico Madrid
    Group B: Real Madrid
    Group C: Leverkusen/Monaco/Zenit
    Group D: N/A
    Group E: Bayern Munich
    Group F: PSG/Barcelona
    Group G: N/A
    Group H: Porto

    The old giants are still there of course, but the draw doesn’t look as daunting as last year. I’d definitely fancy us against Porto, or whoever wins Group C, so there’s a 2/6 or 1/3 chance of a decent draw, but we all know what Arsenal’s luck is like… But then again, watching Dortmund play recently, I wouldn’t put it past Anderlecht to beat them so we can top the group, though still unlikely of course.

    The klopp of 3 years ago , maybe !

    On current form he is no better than wenger , much prefer to wait and see what pep is doing at the end of the year if bayern fail to win the champions league tbh !

    My ideal scenario would be for wenger to realise the error of his ways and get us genuinely competing , but I can’t see that happening so go for someone top class , with the wages we pay wenger it shouldn’t be too much of a problem !

    Whether hell score enough goals in the coming weeks is yet to be seen, but if he contributes to others scoring I’ll take that! I’m glad he’s back his physical presence gives defenders a lot to think about, we often forget his defensive qualities and in the last game I was happy to see him closing down foster, shame he couldn’t show a little more composure and use his right foot to put it in the net from a tight angle. Welcome back OG, now stay fit !!
