Giroud! The perfect team player by Eddy
Hello Fellow Gunners out there. It’s been a while I wrote an article about us, but this one I can’t ignore and I hate so much. The Giroud to Chelsea transfer talk. I know a lot of us see Giroud as below world class but this guy can boast being among the top 3 best target man on the planet. And we feel he’s had his chances and wasted them.
Giroud I’ll say is a great player but Wenger, who claimed he made him who he his, failed to utilize his (Giroud) strengths. You never know what you have until you lose it. Giroud gives us another dimension, offers something else. He is a great option coming off the bench. We all know that yet we are letting him go. Not to any other team but Chelsea, a team that is very dangerous when it comes to set pieces and long crosses.
Now here comes the interesting part. Giroud won’t have poor Bellerin making his poor crosses, or Monreal or Ox, since they’re the only who ones who attempted crosses. But he’ll have Azpilicueta and Alonso!!! Moses and Willian!!! All players who can deliver great crosses especially Azpilicueta, who almost all his assists were crosses to Morata. Giroud will bang in a lot of goals for Chelsea I have no doubt, only a delusional fan will be blind to that fact.
I appreciate Giroud a lot, and I will miss him, but who comes on when we need a plan B?? And why are we selling him and keeping Welbeck?? And I am yet to mention the fact that Giroud, like Wilshere, has pure Love and commitment for this club not the cash.
Yes he needs playing time for the World Cup coming, but I believe we could use him and Lacazette on the same team but Wenger is probably too blind to see that. I’m definitely not happy with losing him but who am I to have a say?
Then, Aubameyang. Aubameyang, the fastest striker on the planet for the past 2 seasons! Oh what a great and fantastic news.
Heaven here we come. Rejoice gunners!! But oh wait!! We are ignoring one fact! He’ll struggle with us, he might get a few goals but he’ll struggle a lot. Why? Aubameyang thrives off the BVB’s style of play which is Direct!! They don’t waste time, and he gets the ball and finishes his job! But at Arsenal we all know it’s a different style of play! Short passes. Arsenal isn’t direct, Aubameyang won’t get those through balls he gets at BVB, he won’t get those explosive runs he makes over there. Simply because it’s pass, pass, and pass!! Take that shot! No! It’s pass and pass and pass backwards.
I pray and I hope he delivers and he finds it easy, but I have doubts because of our style of play. I see him ending up like Lacazette, frozen up front till he decides to start playing from the midfield.
Lastly, we still need proper wingers, defenders and A goalkeeper. But I won’t delve into that now.
Farewell Giroud, I appreciate and wish you all the best.
