    No he hasn't. He only scored 16 goals in the league twice.

    He also has the longest goal scoring drought of any striker in Arsenal history. As well as the second longest goal scoring drought.

    Both of which probably cost us a league title because they both came in the business end of those respective seasons

    Giroud was Mr. Inconsistent during his time here, missing numerous chances but never got half the criticism Ramsey got for being a bit streaky from time to time.

    It just amazes me that such an average player could be so popular while our players with actual world class ability are so divisive.

    Look, BOG, you should know on AM, you don't just get away with saying sorry. It goes on your permanent record and can be brought up any time as your punishment.

    The fact Giroud even gets mentioned here is really rather depressing.

    As i have mentioned elsewhere people are confusing legends with cult players.

    Legends are players like George, Brady, Adams, Seaman, Henry, Bergkamp, Pires to name a few. Players who gave everything and won things over a decent period of time. They are not players like Giroud & Arteta who have both been called a legend in this thread. There are some players who could have been classed as legends but have a cloud hanging over their Arsenal career, Fabregas and RVP spring to mind. Cesc didn't win the PL and left in his prime, RVP left in a cloud of sh1t.

    Fabregas an Arsenal legend or even close to it?

    Nah, not having that. Won nothing and left after threatening to go on strike.

    Amazing talent and player, but, like many, he "discovered" his love for Arsenal after the catalan fans got on his back.

    Fabregas is probably a PL legend, but not an Arsenal one.

    A legend could be determined by the wrong or right reasons, like David Seaman.

    Do explain. I am not sure what you mean.

    A legend could also be identified for the wrong reasons, legends are usually singled out for whatever reason, simply because they hold great responsibility.

    Fabregas loves Wenger, not Arsenal. He's only sucking up to the club now because he knows no other fanbase gives a rat's ass about him.

    Same will happen to Judas. Not really liked by the United fan base, hated by us. Indiferent to... fener?

    Good luck in Feynoord.

    If Koscielny is a legend so is Monreal.

    Man United fans love Van Persie. He was the catalyst for their 20th and last league title.

    I swear you're the only other guy on this forum that rates Koscielny appropriately.

    Monreal is a legend, an unsung hero.

    A professional’s professional: consistent, nothing flamboyant, workmanlike, solid, knows when to advance and when not, makes good crosses and scores goals.

    Love him, and if he’d had better defenders and midfielders around him in his years here, he would have shone like a beacon.
