Lacazette to come and steal it from nowhere @Calum?
What does Lacazette have to do with it?
He might have a second half of the season purple patch and enter the fray for the Golden boot conversation.
Lol no he won’t he’s gonna have a Giroud-esque 12 league goals. But that link up play tho!!
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.
Feels great having a top striker again. To think Auba could have had like 5-6 more goals.
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.
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.
He could have! Scored difficult ones.
He could have! Scored difficult ones. Missed some sitters!
I still have some Arsenal fans telling me Lacazette is better than Aubameyang
We just couldn’t get him involved at all
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
Yikes… wonder if more minutes for Ozil and Laca could have helped that…
If my man Mesut was playing he’d have had at least 14 touches
Ozil didnt help much in last seasons annual hiding in the 4 0.
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.
And now we’ve finally got a proper one he’s wasted on us
