Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (14)

Lacazette to come and steal it from nowhere @Calum?


#944

What does Lacazette have to do with it?


#945

He might have a second half of the season purple patch and enter the fray for the Golden boot conversation.


#946

Lol no he won’t he’s gonna have a Giroud-esque 12 league goals. But that link up play tho!! :joy::joy:


#947

Auba would be the run away leader at the top of that list and we would have 3 or 4 more points than we do right now had he not missed some of those gilt-edged chances. But can’t complain with his return. I just hope this continues all season, without the sitters being missed of course.


#948

Feels great having a top striker again. To think Auba could have had like 5-6 more goals.


#949

It’s even better when you realise he probably isn’t even firing all cylinders yet. I think Auba is a 25-30 goal a season striker and it’s a damn shame it’s taken us 5 or 6 years to have someone like that in our team again.


#950

It’s annoying that for all the pontificating Arsenal fans have done over the years about how different and special we are, and the most important thing is a striker to link up play and not just a goalscorer, and how we’re too special to play with a defensive midfielder and we could only play with Xabi Alonso, that a quick striker who is mostly goalscorer and a defensive midfielder who does everything you’d want one to do is working out perfectly fine.

I wonder how we would have done of we’d spent a bit of money and put these two types of players into our side around 2013.


#951

He could have! Scored difficult ones.


#952

He could have! Scored difficult ones. Missed some sitters!


#953

I still have some Arsenal fans telling me Lacazette is better than Aubameyang :thinking::rofl:


#954

We just couldn’t get him involved at all

#955

they showed here he had one touch in actual play 13mins in, the rest were kick-offs after Liverpool goals, a lost header duel and a failed tackle :persevere:


#956

#957

Yikes… wonder if more minutes for Ozil and Laca could have helped that…


#958

If my man Mesut was playing he’d have had at least 14 touches


#959

Ozil didnt help much in last seasons annual hiding in the 4 0.


#960


#961

We were stuck on 16 goal a season strikers for half a decade it’s no wonder we didn’t come close to winning the PL.


#962

And now we’ve finally got a proper one he’s wasted on us
