To be fair he has had a decent season, even if most of it has been from the bench but, like others have said, he chose to stay, and we pay his wages, not France.
This has been Giroud’s problem since he came here, inconsistenty.
He goes through patches of brilliance followed by long periods of mediocrity.
Let’s not forget it wasn’t that long ago that he broke the PL record for a striker not scoring.
It’s almost as if it’s because for the first time in his Arsenal career,r he has had some serious competition for the striker position, as well as the World Cup coming up, that he has decided to put a bit more effort in.
What other top European club can boast having a first choice striker, with limited ability, unchallenged for more than five seasons.
Because of this, he has became complacent, and has realised that since Lacazette arrived he has had to work harder.
