That Giroud is actually a level or two above DCL. I don’t really know where we’re going.
No one knows, we hired Arteta due to his connection to the club's philosophy and his time at city, yet he plays like prime Burnley and finishes back to back in 8th and the board at Arsenal does nothing. It seems like it always has to become untenable like at United for Kroenke to react.

I doubt we have the money to get DCL...if we get any English striker, it will be Toney.

Is very funny this rumour re-emerged, a minute after we lost a game :lol:

He's a good player but the center forward at Arsenal has to be a special player, and he's not that. He's at his peak now, I can't see him getting much better, and he's coming off a long injury.

We need world class players up front if we want to compete with the big teams.

he is basically bellerin copy, bring him to london and we will lose him to the fashion world.

Just not worth the fee it’d take, he’s not world class and it’s unlikely he’ll ever be that level. Everton will also sell Richarlison - probably to PSG to replace Mbappe, so you’re talking £100m to get them to sell DCL.

I’d rather play Josh Kroenke as a target man than see us pay that.

A lot of money on a position I can't see providing many goals per season given the way we ask the attacker to play. I think you'd be doing well to get 15 goals out of that position whoever we sign. Better served spending less on a CF and going big on a centre midfielder.

Nah, I don't want a fashion victim with a sideline as a model in my team (been there, done that). I want an ugly player whose only chance of making a buck and a name is football.

Was about to say the same, I don't think he is any better than Giroud from 2013-18.

Seems likely he's at least a better goalscorer given he's already matched Giroud's best league haul. He seems to be much more pacey and athletic if we're comparing him to Giroud. Lack of pace being one of Giroud's key weaknesses.

There seems to be a snobbyness about target men because of our history. The days of us attracting this generation's Henry or RVP seem very unlikely in our current state. In our current state many of our chances come from crosses and set pieces. It makes sense to buy one of the best headerers (if that's a word) in the game given where we are right now.

Better in the air than Ronaldo, probably the biggest leap in the league. If we are going that route he would be the best option available.
 

Arsenal Quotes

Ian Wright was the incredible striker for whom those around him sometimes found hard to control especially the opponents. He was an extrovert, hyperactive, and had endured an extremely hard life. His playing style was instinctive, and he had that killer instinct, a player like no other.
