Part-timer Lacazette earning £3,000 per minute on pitch for Arsenal!

Arsenal’s most expensive signing ever, Alexandre Lacazette, must be thinking he is earning fortunes for only having to do a part-time job since his arrival at the Emirates. The Frenchman has played absolutely zero minutes in either the League Cup and the Europa League and has averaged just 70 minutes in each of Arsenal’s Premier League matches since his arrival.

It was revealed when we bought him from Lyon that Lacazette would become our top earner getting an amazing 200,000 Pounds a week. He is probably worth it given his goalscoring prowess, but so far it is working out that he is getting 3000 Pounds for every minute he has spent on the pitch, which is not a bad rate of pay in anyone’s book!

Many Arsenal fans have questioned why the French international can’t manage to stay on for the whole 90 minutes of games and maybe score more as our opponents get tired legs, but Arsene Wenger is adamant that he will continue his policy of taking him off in the later stages of games.Le Prof told “First of all I would like to say that in my job you sub strikers more than defenders, because they have to create, they have to provoke, they have to be incisive in every run.

“Secondly, I think he adapts physically to the Premier League and I’m very happy with the work he does for the team every time he is on the pitch, and thirdly I do that as well because I have other options on the bench who are fresh and can give us another variation in our attacks.

“Physically, the Premier League is very demanding. It demands a huge intensity of work and if you look at the other teams, they take off a lot of strikers as well after 70-80 minutes, between 60 and 80 minutes most of the teams change their strikers because first of all many times they have to work on their own up front against two or three people. Up front you provoke and at the back you respond, so it’s completely different and much more exhausting physically and mentally.”

Ahh poor lad. Physically and mentally exhausting eh? How hard would you work to earn £3,000 per MINUTE!

    Lacazette is having a lot of pressure to score as well, apart from his heavy tag price and salary. Suppose he has goal-drought period in the next few games, he would be attacked by the media, like what they did to other expensive strikers such as Lukaku, Benteke, etc.

    He might work better if playing alongside a taller striker like Giroud. Both could help each other with their own strength and they could play for 90 minutes.

      Good idea.

  2. Tat says:

    If you calculate this way, a lot more players are earning more than him, some doesn’t even has to play.

  3. McLovin says:

    He’s getting subbed to accommodate Giroud.

      You’re right that is essentially what is happening.
      Wenger is destroying Laca’s confidence. Can you imagine Wenger daring to do the same with Thierry back in the day?
      The mad professor has done this to others in recent years, making good players become bad by undermining them. I am sure Wenger does not mean to do it but he is so far out of it now that he cannot see what he is doing.

        Name a player that has left Arsenal and gone on to massively improve their game? If Wengers “making good players become bad by undermining them.” why isn’t that a long list or even a list at all?.Why let reality change the Wenger is past it narrative though right? Our recruitment has been average and we’re the 4th richest team which explains pretty much everything post stadium debt and stadium debt meant we massively over achieved during that lean decade. It’s no coincidence we are shaking up the entirety of our transfer/contract policy right now. The club have no doubt identified that as the main issue in the last 3-4 years post stadium debt and the only way to improve short of injections of millions from Kronke. Take a look at the players that leave other clubs, Chelsea in particular have a long list of letting talent go. Have Arsenal seen a De Bruyne, Pogba or Lukaku slip out of our hands and kick on?

          What is the point to your ramble?
          You appear to agree with me but don’t understand that you do!

      Or rather they are job sharing…..

    Jesus Christ I’m in the wrong job!!

    OT.. Joey Barton said Ramsey should get banned for diving, and if it was at the other end of pitch, the ref won’t give pen, but this short Muppet, didn’t say a word after city third goal, when it comes to arsenal, they all have something to say…
