Was Giroud right to quit Arsenal for Chelsea?

France manager Didier Deschamps has claimed that Olivier Giroud made the correct decision to quit Arsenal for Chelsea.

The French striker left the club as part of a three-way transfer which included our club bringing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the Emirates Stadium, as well as Michy Batshuayi joining Borussia Dortmund on loan.

Should Arsenal worry about Giroud´s internationals?

Arsenal fans will surely be a happier bunch after Arsene Wenger and the players put on a good show away to Watford to record a first win of the new Premier League season. Along with the three points and some good play from the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Granit Xhaka and Petr Cech there were more positives from the Gunners as key players like Ozil, Koscielny and Cazorla returned to fitness.

Game Preview: Arsenal star’s injury blow to ruin France’s Euro 16 bid?

Giroud Euro 16France have a fantastic record in tournaments played on their own turf, having won the World Cup in 1998 and the European championships in 1984, so it is little surprise that they are favourites to win again with 888Sport euro betting odds. They are just one game away from making the final again this summer, but they have the formidable obstacle of the current World champions Germany to get past first, so the news that the Arsenal centre forward Olivier Giroud could miss the match with a knee injury is a huge blow to their hopes of lifting the trophy in Paris on Sunday.

Giroud wants encouragement – not jeers!

The Arsenal and France striker Olivier Giroud has had to contend with much criticism over the last four years since he arrived at the Emirates, but he still manages to put in his performances and score the occasional goal 🙂

Giroud says to look at his statistics – not his critics

Oliver Giroud has come under fire from Arsenal fans and pundits alike in his four years as the Gunners main striker, but especially this campaign just ended as we failed to catch Leicester in the title race. A hat-trick in the last League game against Aston Villa meant that Giroud equalled his best tally of 16 (EPL) goals for the season, and 24 in all competitions, but that is not really good enough for a top team like Arsenal, especially with Ozil creating chances in the hundreds…..

Can Coquelin’s international snub be good news for Arsenal?

I have to feel a bit sorry for the Arsenal midfield star Francis Coquelin, as he has been ignored once again by Didier Deschamps, the manager of the France national team. We can only hope that this latest snub will inspire the 24-year old on to even greater efforts for the Gunners.

Coquelin´s full focus on Arsenal after international snub

The cool and combative young Arsenal midfield star Francis Coquelin has actually appeared for his country, making three appearances for the under 17s, five for the under 18s, 16 for the under 19s, 12 for the under 20s and seven for the under 21s of France.

Should Arsenal let Debuchy leave in January?

When Arsenal signed Matthieu Debuchy from Newcastle, the Frenchman was hailed as the perfect replacement for Bacary Sagna. He had already displaced his countryman in the national side and was experienced in the Premiership enough to easily slot into the Gunners back line.
