Arsenal fans are becoming increasingly frustrated with our French striker, who seems to be suffering from a lack of confidence at the moment, which may be a problem created by the criticism in the first place!
But Arsene Wenger has always backed Olivier and usually gives him a chance to ‘bounce back’ after a disappointing performance. The manager started with Giroud in Zagreb after he had been booed off the pitch whilst playing for France, but that decision backfired when the French striker managed to get sent off as his frustration mounted.
But Wenger seems to still have confidence in Giroud, and although Le Prof says that he hasn’t decided on today’s striker, he seems to think Walcott is a good option to bring on from the bench. Arsene said on Arsenal.com: At the moment I must say that is a decision I still have to make tomorrow morning,” the manager said. “I try to use the best solution that gives us the most efficiency offensively.
“Every game is different and that is why I don’t deny at all the quality of Walcott. I am very happy that he scored so many goals in so many starts. He shows as well that when he comes on, he can score as well, which he did in Zagreb.”
So how many Arsenal fans think that Giroud has had enough chances and think that Walcott should now be an automatic starter untilhe gets injured?
