    Default Olivier Giroud calls Thierry Henry a 'dull' pundit ..

    "'I think Giroud is doing extremely well but can you win the league with him? I wouldn't think so,' Henry told Sky Sports, adding Wenger needed to bring in four players to challenge Jose Mourinho's runaway champions.

    Giroud believes Henry needed to say something that would get a rise and he was a soft target.
    'I heard he was saying too many dull things. That was a bomb and it had its desired effect,' he told French newspaper L'Equipe.


    Giroud echoed the sentiment of his manager at the time who said Henry's comments were 'wrong'."


    'He's paid for that,' Wenger said. 'We know all the system now of the modern media, especially on TV. I know how it works. They push you to be controversial because they give you a lot of money.'


    Wenger also pointed out that similar comments were made by so-called experts about other stars including Nicolas Anelka, Henry and Robin van Persie
    Giroud's explanation for Henry comment: "Maybe he was angry that I needed fewer games than him to score 50 goals for Arsenal."

    Giroud: “It was a bit easy for him to say that after Chelsea game. We were doing well, unbeaten in 10, my stats were good. It hurt my pride"

    Giroud: “It was surprising to hear him take apart the team. I say ‘team’ because it wasn’t just me, it was the spine. I think he’s wrong”

    Giroud is one of the most unfairly treated players in BPL. He has one of the best goals per min ratios in the league.

    Also may be worth adding, Henry on post-match Giroud comment a couple weeks before the Chelsea game:

    "If it was anyone else, we'd be saying he's world class"

    We do need another option up top though that can offer what Giroud is lacking (pace, skill, creativity). Really hope Wenger fills in the blanks this summer and we can start next season with some quality depth in our squad and more options available to change up our game at times.

    yeah course not, like pointed out was tongue in cheek that particular comment but rest of it re: dull punditry, the timing/context etc was spot on

    Giroud is a media and fickle fan scapegoat. Many fail to realise that he isn't the problem. The problem is we don't have an Aguero, we only have a Dzeko who works his ass off and does his best for the team.

    Would love for us to signing skengman benz although can't see it happening and if we are left with Welbz n Giroud I just hope we try the two up front more together cos let's be real, we aren't scoring the amount of goals required to win the league with Giroud alone, Ox in terms of numbers isn't quite there yet, Ramsey if he plays on the wing wont ever recapture that season's form again and Sanchez has been mad wasteful the last 10 games or so but let's put that down to fatigue.

    Henry as a footballer >>>>>>>>>> Henry as a pundit

    Giroud on Henry as a pundit >>>>>>>>>>> Henry on Giroud as a player

    Henry as a footballer >>>>>>>>>>> Giroud as a footballer (although no one's disputing that really, not even Giroud)

    Bergkamp >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Still oozing that elegance, even when he's not there.

    Giroud is a Champions League striker, no doubt.

    Henry was being a bit unfair. Giroud is not the type of striker that Arsenal need as a lone striker, he needs runners. But that isn't his fault, it was Wenger that signed him, however he is very good at what he does do. Partner him with Suarez and everyone would be singing his praises and saying how good he is.

    Like someone said, Giroud has worked like a madman to get to where he is working his way up from Ligue 2 to Champions League with Arsenal. He's not going to take shitty comments lightly, when by and large he's been in good form. I don't blame him for that and he has my resepct for not cowering to Henry's comments. Strikers need that inner confidence tbh.

    Lol. I meant the type of player he needs to be partnered with.

    Giroud is a good striker playing in the wrong era. If clubs were still playing 442 we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    regardless he'd be top 6 imo

    is he good enough to play in the CL- definitely. not a CL or league contender striker though.

    it's not to do with being slow, big etc. ibra and perhaps a more fair comparison prime berbatov would flourish in any era.

    serious q: how many sub 20 league goal seasons will it take for u arsenal fans to say giroud aint good enough?

    If you are comparing him to a modern striker who can play on his own up front (I.e. A striker after the Brazilian Ronaldo-era) I agree with you.

    But he's never been one of those. So those sorts of comparisons are unfair, and Why I have some sympathy for Giroud after Henry's comments

    He needs to be played with someone. If we play with two up front and he's not performing in that system then, I'd say he's not good enough.

    He's never been a Drogba, Aguero type who can play on his own, chase down stuff and create his own chances. I feel everyone is ignoring this key fact.
