Getting 100th goal to see Giroud hit TOP form for Arsenal?

To be fair to the Arsenal and France forward Olivier Giroud, he has not been given as much time on the pitch as would have liked so far this season by Arsene Wenger, to get that landmark 100th goal in Arsenal colours and join an elite group of Gunners including greats like Ian Wright and Thierry Henry.

The big striker did finally complete his century this week from the penalty spot away to BATE Borisov, thanks to a generous decision from the referee. That was not the Frenchman’s fault, though, and he dispatched it with aplomb and will now be able to focus on scoring more as he said after the match.

Players often say things like they are only playing for the team and not interested in personal glory, but who really believes all that twaddle? You can bet that it has at least been on Giroud’s mind, and probably ever since he scored his 99th, although that was the amazing late comeback winner against Leicester on the opening day so he may have been wrapped up in the occasion for a while.

Ever since, though, Giroud will have been keen to score number 100 and came very close a few times, but the longer it eluded him the more pressure he will have put himself under. Now Olly can play with freedom again and hopefully rediscover the form that made him such a vital part of our side last season, even if it was often from the subs bench that he did the damage.

Do you expect Giroud to now go on a scoring streak for Arsenal? I certainly do, as long as Wenger plays him of course…

    Giroud is such an amazing player.. He has been my best arsenal player since he arrived(fact)..he loves this team and its sad seeing some fans slate him.. This man was bought for 12mill and has scored 100goals and 41 assist yet fans don’t know his worth.. Need to change our mentality and show respect to loyal players.. He plays for the badge and deserves our respect.. #GIROUD.

    Well said Gooner4ever. Well said.

    Some will always hate his guts. But he has done his own reputation a lot of good by being strong and staying with us through our most difficult period. For me, he is a good man, apart from being an amazing player.

    You can’t say the same of some of our former players, who have jumped ship and abandoned the club. Step forward van Persie, Fabregas and Nasri….

    100 goals after how many games? Giroud should consider himself lucky to be in Arsenal team by now. When he gets the ball, he turns around and face his own goal keeper. Players with technical ability have been sold, like, Ox, Gervinho, Gnabry, and Campbell who is hovering around. These are players who can challenge defenders. He should thank Wenger for his support
