You might think that the Arsenal and England international star Danny Welbeck might feel a little put out about having to play second fiddle to Olivier Giroud, in the Premier League games at least, since the Frenchman returned from his lengthy injury lay off, but he doesn´t seem to be.
The stats involved in this article about the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil were made before the Gunners´trip to Loftus Road to face QPR in the Premier League, so may have changed a little but not much.
The Myth that Giroud has good stats by Gameruk
Okay, Arsenal fans, thing I hear a lot from those pro-Giroud fans is that if you compare his stats to other strikers in the league then it shows him to be a very good striker. Well I’m hear to put that myth to bed.
With all the bad lick that Arsenal had with injuries last season, including long spells out for Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey, at least we managed to get our young Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey back in action in time to score the crucial extra-time winner against Hull City at Wembley.
Hello fellow Gooners. Hope everything is fine with you’ll (Besides the transfer speculation of course). After going through so many Arsenal transfer rumors, I am writing this article to deviate some attention on our offensive capabilities and more specifically on our Set Pieces and Penalty capabilities..
There was no doubt that the £42 million signing of Mesut Ozil by Arsenal was the big story of the transfer window for various reasons. The Gunners smashing their transfer record as well as the decision of Madrid to let such a player go. Some critics, however, thought that Ozil was not the player Arsenal needed and that Wenger had messed up by not signing a striker.
When Olivier Giroud arrived at Arsenal last summer, there was a lot of pressure on him. There shouldn’t have been, because he was not that expensive, at around £10 million. He was also making the difficult step up from France to the English Premier League, and we have seen plenty of players struggle with that, but the fact that he was a direct replacement at centre forward for Robin van Persie meant that Giroud was always in the spotlight, and Arsenal fans were not about to be too understanding.
Lukas Podolski was the first Arsenal signing of last summer, in fact the move was announced before the transfer window even opened. How nice that would have been this year eh? The German striker is now preparing for his second season in the Premier League, and he is looking forward to it with excitement and confidence.
