Auba, Laca or Ade...who would you say is the best?
Think of them all at their best for us.
Why you putting Laca in there? What has he done to be in with strikers who have scored 40 goals a season for Arsenal?
You and Jury were talking about Laca...throw Giroud in there to make it a foursome, how would you rank them?
Based on what? Think Ade was the talented of the lot but was crazy, Auba has made a bigger impact and Giroud had the longevity.
All things considered -
Yeah, meant as an all round player/striker...you think Auba made a bigger impact that Ade?
Would have his 07-08 above Auba.
Ade for that season was almost unplayable. Had he stayed as motivated as that for longer, he'd be preferred over Auba. At their best, it would depend who they were playing with. I think Ade would do better in this team and Auba would do better in the team Ade had his best season with.
Lacazette gets an easier ride because he’s not the only senior striker like Giroud was.
I’d probably go with Giroud, given the choice though.
Laca is a better footballer than Giroud, but a worse striker. He is much better technically than the donkey, but he has no striker instinct. Giroud on top of being a target man of sort was a decent poacher by the end despite his pace.
Actually on the pace front, our scouts must have gone out of their way to find the one striker that is slower than Giroud, but credit to them they managed it with Laca. Giroud looked like Usain Bolt in comparision to Laca during the EL final.
How do you think Laca would be viewed if he was playing for Liverpool now?
Having speedy goalscoring wingers would take the pressure off his lack of a goals, similarly to Firmino.
What exactly do these two players have in common other than the goal scored stat that makes people on here compare them? As far as I can they otherwise aren't similar players, not in roles and certainly not in quality. If Laca is too slow even for us, I would think his lack of pace would be highlighted even more in a counter attacking team like theirs.
Think Firmino is the better player, but is Laca really as slow as being made out here?
Both are kinds of False nines, that's were the comparisons are made I think...though I suppose Roberto is kind of inbetween RVP and Laca in terms of quality.
Lacazette isn’t really a false 9 though, it’s a myth. He’s at his best playing in the box scrapping for balls and scoring from tight angles, tryna have him create for others and he will look bad out there.
Laca is nor a false 9 half the time hes the reason we lose the ball passing is hit and miss . His strengths are his shooting.
This guy is almost 30 and has done f all at Arsenal, it’s time to cash in.
Still think if we had goalscoring wingers like Mane and Salah instead of playmaking ones we have mostly had since he was here, he would look a lot better...he does play like a false nine, he drops deep quite a lot.
Wish he got more time playing with Sanchez, as they looked pretty good together despite Alexis mentally being else where those six months.
He definitely likes to drop deep but he was told by Wenger to stay closer to the box , because let's face everyone else was a level above him on the ball . Emery came in and told him to roam .
The FIFA game had him as one of the fastest players back in his Lyon days. Similar to doumbia when he joined Newcastle, you watch these guys and wonder how those working on the game came about those pace stats.
Good to have our targets prepared for the international break. All this laca talk is nothing but a time wasting mechanism.
The player he was on games like Fifa and Football Manager before we signed him, portrayed him as a very different player to the one we eventually got...very weird.
I wonder if his injuries recently have had a really bad effect on his pace. Cause hes not supposed to be slow
