If Giroud were to leave us this Summer, how would his time at Arsenal be remembered? I feel there’s going to be two camps in this.
The one that feel he did a pretty decent job to rack up over 80 goals and his ability to assist other players into the mix as well.
The other will be that he’s slow, misses easy chances, moans a lot on pitch and that we used him as our lead striker for 4 seasons.
For me personally, he gets a hell of a lot of stick. Sometimes he deserves it like the second half of last season was unacceptable to go 15 games or whatever it was without a goal. But even when he had his strong spells at the club he was never always given the praise he should’ve had, especially as he’s more of a support striker, not a lead one. Blame Arsene for that, more than Giroud’s inefficenties.
He should’ve had a lead striker alongside him and he would’ve flourished and not had the expection on him to be a lead striker. I just hope, whenever he leaves, his time with us isn’t looked back on with negative vibes, overall I think he turned out to be a good purchase for us.
