DCL is proving quality and will only improve ....i did like the idea of Giroud but we need pace badly ....DCL has it in abundance but is a season off a full prem starter yet imho.

I agree we need a striker, but Giroud isnt the one.. If we play DCL im sure he will be valuable this season, alongside Niasse upfront, those 2 will cause issues for any defence.. we(Koeman) need(s) to stop being afraid of other teams and start with some attacking options, instead of going behind with no shots on target then bricking it and changing tactics, players and formation.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

Giroud's lack of pace is a big no from me. We need more pace in our team not less

lol i chat shit? when you want a slow immobile striker (Giroud) and are willing to pay over 40-50 million?

ironic much?

Apart from when you remember that 40m doesn't actually get you much these days. The way we are set up, we need a target man up front who can hold the ball up, bring others into play around him... you know, all those number 10s. We have the options that will run the channels and get in behind in Sandro and DCL. Welbeck is another of that ilk, not someone who will make it stick up front.

Giroud is a fucking class act, and I would love to see him in Royal Blue. That has nothing to do with Koeman putting the blinkers on the fans in terms of his targets, it comes from actually watching football.

It was a silly decision not to start him tonight. Say what you will about the missed header but I still think that his general terrorizing of defenders offsets the big chances he sometimes fails to convert. We hardly even create those sort of opportunities when he's on the bench. Yes, he had the advantage of playing against tired defenders tonight, but we saw him give Ake/Francis/Cook trouble for 90 minutes this weekend so it's not like he can't do the job from the start.

We're a better team with him on the pitch. He should be starting every game at centre forward (unless he really needs the rest).

Thing is, he can finish. At present, DCL cannot.

If we had Bolasie back and maybe played some of the more energetic players, Giroud's lack of pace wouldn't be such an issue. He can certainly finish better than DCL at this point, no question.

I'm trying very hard not to be anti-Rooney as he's done alright but I just don't think he's helping the team in the way we need. If we had Giroud, I'd play him ahead of Rooney nine times out of ten with Sigurdsson behind and some more mobile players either side.

The reason DCL is effective is because he is fast enough to get to aerial balls and terrorize defenders. A slower player wouldn't be able to get there. He is the only one with any pace in our team. He did everything right with the header today but it was a really good save.

From where I was sitting it looked like he headed it straight into the middle of the goal directly at the keeper?

Let's not crucify a young lad just because he misplaced a header. The fact we're even leaning so heavily on the kid speaks volumes in itself.

It was a poor header but it can happen to anyone.
