Arsenal FC – Olivier Giroud Isn’t Useless After All

Posted on 24 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

Deep down inside, Arsene Wenger wishes he had a better striker than Olivier Giroud. However, on the current Arsenal team, he is the best he’s got, which is weird (or not, depending on how familiar you are with the French manager’s logic) he’d put himself with his back against the wall until opting to use the forward to save himself from the first loss of the season.

Posted on 20 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s hard to decide whether Arsenal are pleased with their performance in the Champions League qualifiers or should be worried about it. Other things are clear, such as the disastrous performance from Olivier Giroud who hasn’t shown any improvement over the last eight or nine months, and the importance of Aaron Ramsey finding himself sent off in the final minutes.

Arsenal FC – Alexis Sanchez Doesn’t Make Olivier Giroud Any Better

Posted on 22 Jul, 2014, by in Soccer

The excitement spreading over Arsenal fans because of another summer that proves Arsene Wenger isn’t just about developing and saving money won’t last a long time if he doesn’t bring in more players. Relying on Olivier Giroud as the team’s lone striker was a bad idea last season, and it will remain just as bad this season if no one to at least give him some push and shove in the rotation arrives.

15 Best Memes of France Destroying Switzerland & Other World Cup Stuff

Posted on 21 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

The most impressive result of day 9 in the 2014 World Cup was France absolutely running all over Switzerland with an impressive performance from Olivier Giroud and Karim Benzema, maybe the best player in the tournament so far.

Arsenal FC – Mesut Ozil Really Helpful When He Doesn’t Play

Posted on 17 Mar, 2014, by in Soccer

More than anything, Arsenal needed toughness and bravery in the North London derby. Arsene Wenger changed his tactics to fit a team out to bite on counter attacks and then sit back and defend. The plan worked well with Tomas Rosicky providing the goal and eventual winner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla did a great job in the middle of the pitch and Mesut Ozil played his part by not being available, which actually helped his team.

Arsenal FC – Mesut Ozil & Olivier Giroud Failing Together

Posted on 12 Mar, 2014, by in Soccer

Another big occasion, and another match in which Mesut Ozil pulls off his famous disappearing act, while Olivier Giroud, worn out from being the only viable striker on this Arsenal team Arsene Wenger built, didn’t do much better in another rather bland 90 minutes from the French striker. More

Arsenal FC – Mesut Ozil Has Never Looked Worse

Posted on 9 Feb, 2014, by in Soccer

Passion never burns through Mesut Ozil, or at least it doesn’t seem to. An enigma when trying to decipher based on what’s seen on the outside, but it wasn’t hard to read his thoughts as he was taken off the pitch at Anfield, being one of the main culprits in a humiliating performance that might cost Arsenal more than just three points.

Posted on 18 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Thinking that Olivier Giroud has made a great leap this season, taking him into another level? Well, not all numbers and statistics support that theory, showing that among the league’s top strikers, no one is as wasteful and inefficient as Arsenal’s French forward. More

Arsenal FC – Olivier Giroud Needed to Stay on The Pitch

Posted on 15 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

With Arsenal down by two goals, Arsene Wenger decided he’ll take off his best striker, Olivier Giroud. Why? Hard to explain, although it was quite easy prediction that his team was just going to suffer for that decision. More

Arsenal FC – Aaron Ramsey is The Next to Bore Us With the Non Celebration

Posted on 1 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Of all the tedious things footballers can do to kill the joy in a sport that’s not as spontaneous and fun as it used to be comes the non celebration after scoring against former clubs. Aaron Ramsey is playing as well as anyone in the Premier League right now, adding two more goals in the fantastic title run Arsenal are having, but he sullied a wonderful afternoon by choosing to do the “classy” thing instead of letting out his true emotions.
