    Superfast? Are you sure about that? Don't think he has ever been quick. Not even in his Lyon days.

    Read my post again mate!

    It’s okay though, even an elite poster like you sometimes misreads a post!

    Just wish he’d sort his feet out when attacking the box. Should have had two easy yesterday.

    I still think we'll get a back-up striker. There are so many games to rely only on him and Eddie.

    What? No way. We have Auba and even Pepe who can be emergency back-up there. Then there is TJJ too. Martinelli coming back next year.

    We have enough wingers now to move Auba central if necessary.

    TJJ has been loaned out
    But yeah, agree with you. We don't need a striker unless Laca leaves.

    Our current lack of numbers in midfield area means that Laca is being double teamed by the marking defender and the spare midfielder.

    A switch to a midfield 3 would probably take the heat off of Laca and make it easier for him to hold the ball up.

    Positive that he got an away goal already, hopefully that's a monkey off his back.. Fitness wise he looks way off pace compared to end of the season, which doesn't really make sense so I might have just been imagining it.

    For the record everyone, Edouard is doing all that vs part-time plumbers before you get hyped by this one-sided sales pitch.

    :lol: - if we can improve on Lacazette I'm sure almost everyone would be up for it.

    But yeah, it not quite the given that Edouard is the answer to our prayers. Yes, yes I know Tierney - but by all accounts he was scouted for years.

    So I guess nobody should have bought Van Dijk when he played against the same plumbers?

    Yeah thought his hold up play improved tremendously end of the season but yesterday his touch was letting him down again

    Not commentating on his overall fitness levels but he did start pre-season this year later the other players. May have contributed to his sluggish play.

    He does look a bit sluggish, but he always gives his all, and got a nice little poachers goal to get off the mark. Can't complain.

    Good point. Another thing to consider is that maybe Arteta orders him to put everything on the field until 70th minute or so, because we have Nketiah to substitute.

    We usually substitute CF, RW & some other position depending on things/injuries. CF has to press a lot.

    Interesting. Does that happen every year?

    No, but this year he had to quarantine after coming back from wherever he went on holiday.
