    Would say Laca is the more rounded footballer...but if you have a team that can cover for Giroud’s weaknesses, you take Giroud, as he has some brilliant strengths as a forward.

    ......aaaand once again were are back to discussing Giroud in the Laca thread. The hundredth time if I’m not mistaken.

    Why does this phenomenon persist to this day? It is very curious. I will write a white paper on its origins, but will need to conduct some interviews for research material.

    @GDeep™ Why did you mention the Chelsea outcast commonly known as Giroud, seemingly at random, and trigger this most recent glut of comments?

    Giroud was bad with us according to most on this forum. Lacazette who is on equal if not worse form is consider to be next Luis Suarez by most on here. Its interesting to see how people pick favorites and stick with them until the end.

    But tbf many posters are coming back to the light and finally admitting what I said long time ago. Lacazette is slightly below average player. We would do good getting rid of him in next two years and find more talented striker!

    Lacazette has played 6539 min. for Arsenal, scored 38 goals, and provided 15 assists (plus 4 pens). That's a goal contribution every 115 mins. Auba has played 6189 min., scored 50, and provided 12. A goal contribution every 100 mins.

    What is this sorcery.

    Having to reduce to total minutes and goal contributions for strikers ffs.

    What is next? Total seconds and key passes just to try and make the average Lacazette look good?

    Lacazette has been here for almost 2.5 years. Auba just under 2, and has the record for the fastest 50 goals in an Arsenal shirt whilst even having to play out wide, that's all you need to know. Lacazette with his poverty 38 goals is nearing 100 appearances and still far away 50. Giroud level numbers.

    Giroud was a top quality striker imo. Man was Drogba level in terms of strike rate and like Didier always turned up in huge moments.

    Guy was an absolute unit, who was good at linking play.

    Wasn’t his fault we never won that title, Drogba had Lampard but who did we have backing him up with goals?

    This is an atrocious post all the way through but this bit takes the piss . He literally went 5 months without scoring in 2016. It is literally his fault we didn't win the title:lol:

    You've pretty much posted the same kind of thing no? Your post infers the number 50 is an order of magnitude away from the number 38. The term "almost .5 years" is made to sound as if its a decade, and the bizarre prioritization of appearances over actual minutes on the pitch is witchcraft of the highest order ;)

    We should’ve gotten a goalscorer up front to ease the burden on Alexis the summer before.

    But yeah that five months bit :facepalm:

    There's absolutely no need to talk total minutes, it doesn't make any sense to use a number as big as 6500 when you just can use appearances to say the same thing.

    But I'm guessing it's to turn Lacazette's misfortune around of Wenger treating him "badly" and subbing him off(for no goals and poor performances), isn't it? :lol:

    Laca's OK, puts in a shift, yeah he's no Suarez. The boy is certainly not deserving of the almost pathological hatred exhibited by some on here - I just don't get it? Auba has had quite a few off games too recently TBF.

    Right, off to the hood to cut my hair, have a pleasant afternoon*

    It's no different to what you and others are giving Özil?

    This is how it is in every player thread. Fail to see why you're so surprised.
