Who's talking about Aubameyang?
Loving sh*tting on guys + Mustafi sh*tting on Arsenal = Defending Mustafi no matter what.
Lacazette is 28, Lewandowski is 30. Who would you rather have right now as your starting striker?
Not that much better
Come on my guy, this is delusional stuff. I accept that the three mentioned are all declining, but Laca is hardly 22 is he?
Lacazette was born 28.5.1991, Lewa 21.8.1988. That's about 2 years and 9 months. So much closer to 3 years than 2 years. Lewa is 31 in a week, heh. Those two other guys are older.
Did you notice what I said about better wingers? With Pepe I expect Laca to do more points. With him the attacking line-up gets more even, but it's Pepe's 1st season in EPL.
Did you notice that I said EPL is more difficult league than Spanish or German leagues? It's not big difference.
Like the difference in quality between these players in not BIG. They are a bit better than Laca, but you said everyone would trade Laca to those players. I really would not, never at this point. Would be really stupid as we have Auba already who is similar quality to those players and similar age too.
Lewa is still clearly the better striker today, and Laca isn't a youth project. ok so Lewa is 31 in a week or so, didn't realise when I looked it up, but it doesn't really change much.
By what metric do you quantify that the Spanish or German leagues are 'less difficult' than the English league? I see people say this a lot but I never get a justification for it.
Just thank your lucky stars you weren't here for the Gervinho Ultras.
It doesn't matter that Laca is not a youth prospect. I would never change him to a bit better player who is almost 3 years older, especially when we also have Auba.
Simple explanation is money. Premier League money is much bigger than other leagues, which means they get better players. As I said, it's not a big difference, but the difference is there. This helps the smaller teams most I think, which also evens out the league. Smaller teams cannot be "robbed" Bayern style here anymore.
This is purely speculative, but I'd like to compare him to Suarez. Suarez had 6 more points in La Liga than Laca in EPL, with Suarez playing 327 more minutes.
Do you think Lacazette could have those 6 more points with 327 more minutes, along with having Messi & Semedo from the right wing rather than Iwobi/Mkhi & AMN, Jenkinson & Lichtsteiner?
I think he surely would. Also it seems Suarez scored 4 penalty goals, and Aguero & Lewa 2. While Auba took all Arsenal's.
This same kind of thinking can be done to Lewa & Aguero. Aguero had B. Silva & Walker compared to Laca. And Lewa had Gnabry/Robben & Kimmich. Different levels altogether.
It's not always that straighforward to compare players from different teams and leagues.
Please explain to me how this is delusional.
Lacazette is unique, He's like Firmino. What he brings to the team is unique, none of these three players brings that. Did you watch Firmino's performance yesterday? Basically that's what Lacazette brings to Arsenal. His relentless pressing, link up, movements, ability to create space for others, bringing others into play. That's what Lacazette does.
That was completely taken out of context, all I said was that the defence is crap with or without him. This is slander.
So when Erlis defends Xhaka in that thread everyone gets mad at him. Funny enough I'm the last guy that gets excited over youth players, I prefer experience and think people get too excited over youth players not even knowing how good they are i.e. Reiss Nelson. So calm down and put your tampon in.
It's just figure of speech for being critical, dummy. I read your other posts in this thread and realise you're just a weirdo fanboy, you probably just fancy Lacazette. Don't quote me again.
Like you fancy Giroud? I always thought that you are the lady involved in Giroud's infidelity scandal.
Lool that actually made me laugh for real. But I was Giroud biggest critic just cos I think him and Lacazette are on the same level.
Say what you want but Giroud lead France to a World Championship while Lacazette is the 15th choice striker.
This forum was better when football wasn’t on.
Now it's just Cazorla nostalgia and throwing mud on the faces of players that haven't even kicked a ball yet this season. Sad.
First off, he didn't score a goal, secondly he didn't hit the target once, and Giroud was there because Benzema has been banned since 2016.
Come off the Laca hate wagon. He's clearly a quality player who most probably hasn't even been tapped properly yet. You're talking like he's some Mustafi joke figure. I don't get it. Your argument, at best, can only be 'he's not as good as some people make out'... But what would be the point of that? He was player of our season last year ffs. May not have been our best, but he was a close second. Move on to some other player worth murdering. You're wasting your time and you're setting yourself up for a fool
Giroud led France to World Cup glory with his 0 goals and 1 assist.
