Olivier Giroud


#2569

We never really tried (just one or two games did not mean “try”) the 2-striker formation, to have one more “forward” to assist and compliment Giroud.

The 2 wide players that we had (in Giroud’s first 2/3 seasons), Theo could not cross, Poldi could cross but not playing enough; and Santi never really went deep but cut in more. The last could of years, Sanchez was more extreme than Santi, ball hog too much, and I don’t even remember who played on our right side at all after Theo’s gone.

When Laca, Miki and Auba came, Giroud already deployed as a substitude.

Inspired by Mesut. Özil can’t stop assisting :grin:


#2571

Imagine if Mustafi still does this to our current crop. It would be maddening hearing it from a player like him…


#2572

#2573

Giroud under Simeone :fire::fire::fire:


#2574

Speaking about Stéphane Guivarc’h.

He didn’t score a single goal in the entire tournament which later another forward Oliver Giroud did in France’s 2nd ever World Cup win in 2018.

Would love it just to see Cuellar’s face :mustafi:


#2578

Not bothered at all, it’s the price we paid to keep brother Griez, let him pick a few mates to play with, anyways I trust my Cholo :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: , he won’t be like Wenger, will realise quickly he’s shit and use him as an occasional super sub and that’s that. :slight_smile:

VAMOS MI ATLÉTI, A POR LA LIGAAA


#2579

Giroud and Godin on the same team heading shit out of the box, oh what a fucking delight :giroud2:

#2585

End of an era.


#2586

Let’s hope it’s the end of the Europa League era.

We need to get back in the CL.
