Alexandre Lacazette (9)


#723

Agreement with Giroud to give him PL minutes.


#724

I would’ve brought Walcott on, with him and Lacazette on the counter Watford would’ve been dead and buried. But Giroud has Wenger’s nudes so he’s forced on


#725

I’ve seen people suggest he’s trying to keep Giroud match sharp for EL games. Seems like more evidence of poor squad management.

Either way I don’t think there’s some kind of agreement. Doubt giroud is satisfied with 20mins each match, he’d rather be starting


#726

These guys kept fucking up all our counters because they aren’t clinical enough. Walcott would have scored a hat trick with the chances we wasted on the counter tbh.


#727

Walcott is actually one of the best finishers we have, kills keepers 1 v 1, been very underused this season as Watford would’ve got thrashed if he came on


#728

Who’s gonna bite, I wonder…


#729

#730

Walcott 2nd top scorer last season, same this season without playing a game in PL. Stats show he is ‘one of the best finishers we have’ so what’s trolling about it…


#731

Oh… slowly backs away


#732

Seems to lack some confidence

LOL just as I post this he scores


#733

First goal away from home! :smile:


#734

Glad he got something for his work, he is just slightly out of sync at times and a bit unlucky, glad he got one here!


#735

Subbed again. If Lacaz plays 90 minutes he turns into a pumpkin. Pass it on.


#736

Pretty poor performance in his general play tbh but he’s a poacher and he took his chance to solidify our lead can’t ask for more than that.


#737

Lovely finish


#738

Being a fan of Giroud I would expect it would take a lot, lot worse than that to get you to say this ^


#739

It’s a nice thought to think that with this AOL puzzle piece in play, all Lacazette has to think about is staying up high and waiting for anything through the lines or bobbling around the box. I hate seeing our 9’s having to haul there arse around the pitch because we’re inept in the build up.

Superb finish. He also kissed Özil’s neck when Mesut scored :giroud3: :giroud2:

Got a bit of chub on there.


#740

and the solution is better midfield play imo, and I think with it we could move Sanchez (who is also further back than I’d like him to be) slightly further up the pitch.


#741

You can tell that Ozil and Alexis enjoy playing with him a lot more than static Giroud.


#742

Too bad he was signed three years too late and coincidentally in the year where both Özil and Sanchez are looking to fuck off.
