Four Pictures that explain why Arsenal fans don’t like Olivier Giroud

by Sanusi IsmailaSeptember 4, 2014

I’m not an Arsenal fan, In fact while I watch a healthy dose of football (mostly the English Premier League), I’m not sure I qualify as a football lover. Or maybe I’m a football lover and almost everyone else is a fanatic. Yeah, I think that’s what it is. I love football, but I am not crazy about it.

For someone that isn’t crazy about football and not an Arsenal fan, I know Olivier Giroud–Arsenal’s top choice striker is. How so you ask? Week in, week out, Giroud gets a lot of mention by Arsenal fans on and off the internet and most times, the noise about him isn’t the the good kind. He gets a lot of slack for being subpar (according to Arsenal fans).

I don’t blame them though, over the years, Arsenal has had some iconic strikers feature back to back, Henry, Kanu, Bergkamp, Robin van Persie to mention a few, getting someone to fill those shoes was never going to be an easy task.

I’d always wondered whether the slack was justified though, seeing as I don’t catch enough Arsenal games a season to have an opinion, then this tweet below got retweeted to my timeline.

 

I’ll save you the trouble and post the pictures in that tweet here. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are 4.
