Giroud ready to get back in the Goals for Arsenal

Olivier Giroud has not scored for Arsenal since November 17th, when his crisp striker’s finish put the Gunners ahead against Tottenham just before half time. The French international has missed quite a few of the intervening games, starting four of the seven games since, but he knows that he needs to get back on the scoresheet and help to fire Arsenal back up the Premier league table.

“It’s been an interesting few months but now I want to do more.” Giroud said.

“I am an Arsenal player and, rightly, expectations are high. I am trying to do what the boss asks of me, to put pressure on defenders and to improve on protecting and holding the ball.

“We put a lot of good crosses in, so it is important I get on the end of them and score.

“I am feeling much better and better in this team all the time. I know my team mates now, and things are more automatic on the pitch, which makes things easier for me.”

Arsenal badly need a win for league position and to start putting the horrendous cup game against Bradford behind us. Hopefully we will be able to start with a full strength side, including Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott as the front three. Giroud was a little generous about the number and quality of crosses he gets, but with Podolski and Gibbs on the left, with Walcott and Sagna on the right, the service in to the big man should be plentiful.

Reading vs. Arsenal will be on

    To say the truth, giroud speaks more than he scores… he unlike norwich’s holt, doesn’t use his body size to his advantage

    Football legend Johan Cruijff can’t believe Wenger’s position at Arsenal is being questioned. “I have a lot of respect for clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal, who are already more than 15 years have the same manager. Someone like Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester not only the man who must perform, but is now also for the standards and values of the club.I have the same with Arsène Wenger at Arsenal. I find it incredibly handsome, that under his leadership the club has remained at the top for years, without even once to write red numbers. Arsène is able to identify with Arsenal. ”

    all the experts shut it

    Giroud stop the rant, I have heard so from you severally. Nothing is forthcoming keep quite and show your game on the pitch. I mean football is not played by mouth. Show us your game before you talk

    Will you guys stop wasting your time fantasizing about Usmanov. He is not a foot ball player that we can sign. Ownership is a totally different ball game. Kroenke is majority share holder. Usmanov is minority. Kroenke owns arsenal and unless he chooses to sell, your banners and bickering are meaningless. Fantasize about achievable things like Klaas Hunterlar or Demba Ba. But get off this usmanov band wagon. It aint gonna happen.
