Just hired a car to drive Theo up to Everton for 30m.

Let's clear down our strike force and start again with Giroud and Lacazette as the players to beat. got to keep Giroud.

Sanchez and Lacazette as a front two

Giroud Lacazette as an alternative

Sanchez Lacazette and Ozil front 3

Now we need suitable replacements & back up especially if Sanchez goes

I will personally celebrate the day Giroud leaves. Has no business at Arsenal, never has. For me he epitomizes our failings over the past few seasons

No offence intended.

70 goals in 160 games. Has played upfront on his own pretty much since he joined, never complains when he's dropped, pretty much scores every time he comes on, leads the line well, good touch for a big guy, full French International, 23 goals in 50 games.
I'm not saying he's great, but bit harsh mate.

{Ed025's Note - i would love him at everton dags..but you can keep that headless chicken walcott mate..

16 Jul 2017 22:00:11
I'm with you SY not you rue.

16 Jul 2017 22:09:42
I know Theo has never reached his potential, but despite the stick, I think he had a decent season, scoring 21 goals.

{Ed025's Note - im not a big fan dags, drifts in and out of games for me and flatters to deceive mate..

Watching Giroud is like watching paint dry.

{Ed025's Note - i want a tin of that paint steve.. :)

Personally rue I don't think giroud is a bad forward At all. Needed to be upgraded for sure but I don't think he's crap like you're making it sound. He is frustrating tho. Scores some goals he had no right too. But misses some he should be scoring. For the fee we paid and the performances I'll be sad when he goes as there's a few who shouldn't be anywhere near our squad. But I can see the frustrations with him.

Olly is in my opinion and always has been and asset and a credit to Arsenal football club, just not a line striker capable of storing enough premier league goals to secure a title challenge, but top 4 and cups he's proven time and time again.
Theo? Best season ever last season but still only a squad player as a striker but as a winger he's strictly Europa league qualification limited material at best.

16 Jul 2017 22:35:43
Harsh Steve.

16 Jul 2017 23:55:32
But true Days. He's as dynamic as a pencil.

17 Jul 2017 03:10:00
Days I mean Dags.

17 Jul 2017 04:17:36
with fans like these, eh boys?

16 Jul 2017 22:35:26
What player doesn't?
Admittedly, he could/ should do better, but I think he has reached his potential, be it good or bad lol.

{Ed025's Note - serial underachiever for me dags..

16 Jul 2017 23:44:01
if everton offer 30million for theo they must be on drugs.

{Ed025's Note - i agree derby..

17 Jul 2017 07:24:36
Maybe else where Theo would come good who knows, 15 million and parting company would be good for both player and Club imo.
Theo Jack Is Aaron if they all left it would be good for them and us.
They would suddenly be like every other player, picked on performance and Arsene would freed from his determination to prove himself right about them all.

Walcott looks like a lost school boy most of the time to me. Granted he's a good finisher, but pretty much contributes nothing to the team. Touch isn't great, passing hit and miss. It often looks like we're playing with 10 men when he starts.

Shame really, but he's now at the age where he should be delivering, the 'promising prospect ' ship has sailed for me.

17 Jul 2017 12:19:00
That's actually a fair summary Scar, I feel the same about Iwobi 19/ 20 times he plays, it's like we're playing with 10 men as to me apart from the very odd game he looks well out of his current depth in the premier league, a loan abroad or to a championship club might be good for him.

Scar, you summed up Theo perfectly. If people can they should watch the Arsenal versus Sutton FA cup game which i think also summed him up. He scored the 2nd goal, which completely covered up a performance that at best was invisible, and at worst diabolical. Technically he was the worst player on the pitch, including the Sutton players. Passing and control was very poor, and he just didn't contribute apart from the tap in. He scored some good goals last year, and it sounds really strange to say, but the goals cover up his major deficiencies, in that he doesn't contribute enough for a player in his position. Sadly for him, he normally plays in the right side equivalent position to Sanchez on the left, which just magnifies how ineffectual he is in comparison. In a different team, who ask him to play on the last shoulder, looking to slip the ball in behind for him to nip onto, would play to his strengths as he can finish and he is still fairly quick. Perhaps its time for him to find this team, but sadly, that's not Arsenal.
