I get the fact that a lot of Arsenal fans are still not convinced by our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud and think that Thierry Henry was right to say that the Gunners could not win the Premier League with the big man leading the line.
But even our club record signing felt the need to backtrack on his words and explain that he meant that we needed more options, not that Giroud was not good enough. And the general consensus is that we do not want just a Giroud clone to fill in, but a striker that will bring something different to what Arsenal already have.
That is why I am not too excited by the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a summer transfer move for the Barcelona and Spain international star Pedro Rodriguez. His main attributes are his pace and finishing, mainly operating on the right side of a front three and I have just two words to explain why this is not what the Gunners need; Theo Walcott.
In fact, the England forward has proved that he also has the ability to play as a central striker with some success and that is not something Pedro has in his locker. So what is the point in bringing in a player very similar to one we already have, just not as good?
