Giroud Is Feeling The Love

Giroud Is Feeling The Love

Arsenal (fairly) new boy, Olivier Giroud is feeling the love from the Arsenal fans, and it`s making him want to die …. Kind of.

The French striker is one of the fortunate Arsenal players whose name convinently fits into a popular tune that converts nicely into a football chant, because believe me, it doesn`t matter how good you are, if your name doesn`t fit into an easy to chant song, then your name will not be sung.

But "Gi-roud" into "Hey Jude" fits like a glove thus meaning Olivier`s name will be sung with gusto every time he does something positive. And it`s having a positive effect on the player too. Giroud claiming when he first heard his song it made him want to die on the pitch for the fans. Figuratively of course.

"I`m a striker and a striker needs to have a good atmosphere," Giroud told Arsenal Player.

"You have to keep confident. The atmosphere around you and the support of fans, it makes me feel better and better. I feel very emotive and proud to play for Arsenal.

"When I heard the fans` song ... when I came here for the first time, I heard this song and it made me want to die on the pitch for the fans."

Everytime i've seen Giroud play i've been impressed. Sure he's not got RVP's Movement or Technique but he's a real handful and he's good in the air & on the ground. Why Wenger often thinks Gervinho is a better option to me as an outsider looks crazy, but long may it continue.

Alright then, Giroud. Reciprocate the love by scoring goals on a more regular basis. Who knows, fans could just come up with an even better song.

If you ask me, I can't see how Wenger thinks we can afford to have more (bad) news about player departures, at this time. Theo and Bacary represent the last vestiges (Rosicky aside) of any good memories we have of the best passing sides of our club's recent years. Just sign them (Theo and Bac) up I say; we cannot be worse off, considering the dross we have put up with for the last 2 years, or so. These are things which just get me riled up. We need to have our key men all focused on the job of dragging the team up the ladder and here we are, having such an avoidable 'rumour' out on the streets.

Naija, I think a lot of people get wound up about such things; not that it helps anyone or anything. Sagna is being offered a 1-year contract because he's over 30. That's policy, that's what he gets. Theo is being offered an increased and extended contract, in line with policy. If he says '200k/wk or I'm off' - then let him leave. You can't just throw any amount of money at players just because they were here when we were in better form.

Why did Rosicky get more than a year then? Or Silvestre? Or Squillachi? That USED to be policy, it's not any more. Imagine if Bergkamp was 31 yrs of age in this climate? Think he'd stay for 1 more year at at time? It's completey dated and needs bringing up to speed with the modern environment.

Didn't Bergkamp only get one-year contracts at the end of his time with the club? I thought it was standard for most Arsenal players, and was the same for Pires, Lauren etc. Has that policy changed - anything from the club or manager that says it's not that way anymore?
I'm not sure there's anything un-modern about it... If anything, shorter-term contracts make more sense in a world where contracts are 'unprotected' for older players, don't they?

Ok, let's agree it's massively modern then. What about my questions re Rosicky/Silvestre et al? Without picking up on us not offering Pires more than a year, for example.

The policy has been to offer players 1 year contracts AFTER the season in which they reach their 32nd birthday. In most cases they're offered contracts of varying duration up to that age. Other than keepers, so far that has only been breeched for Arteta.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2010/aug/26/arsene-wenger-sebastien-squillaci-arsenal That article clears it up, although before that i'm convinced it was over 30s... So why doesn't Sagna get more than one year? Considering he'll be 30 in Feb?
