everyone else who ran over to congratulate him seemed far more pleased for Giroud than the man himself appeared to be. The arrivals of Mesut?zil Danny Welbeck and Sanchez over the past few seasons eventually meant that the manner in which Arsenal would play going forward was about to undergo a change zil’s perfectly-weighted through balls needed a quicker runner to get on the end of them The strong but speedy Welbeck also began to find himself higher up the pecking order And finally with a view to having a more mobile and swift frontline Sanchez was brought into Giroud’s centre-forward position and the former Montpellier man was relegated to the bench It’s not as though he was dropped from the squad but being benched and brought on when there was a need to change tactic (to go from speedy passing-based play to a more direct game arose) clearly indicated that Giroud was whether or not he chose to accept it Plan B The 2016-17 saw him make 40 appearances (amounting to 1780 minutes) in contrast to 53 appearances (amounting to 3373 minutes) the previous season His frustration poured out with several newspapers quoting the striker on his desire to play more and his dissatisfaction with life on the bench Regardless the club it seemed had other more pressing issues on their mind: The futures of Sanchez?zil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain And consequently were willing to allow him to leave and join Everton for a sum of between 20 and 30 million (depending on whom you choose to believe) The player view It’s probably been a little difficult for Giroud to fathom or even accept why he has dropped so far down the pecking order After all it wasn’t his performances alone that let the club down and in fact it could be argued that the one season in which he wasn’t playing as starting striker was the first time Arsenal dropped out of the Champions League spots His record is by no means bad After all he’s one of only 19 players since the club’s inception to score 100 goals His knack for turning up with a late goal is also something very few of the present Arsenal squad have demonstrated Then there’s the topic of his fitness Giroud has had one of the best injury records for an Arsenal player in recent times particularly when considering the physical high-impact sort of game he plays Additionally given that speed isn’t an important facet of his game Giroud has a longer lifespan as a striker than a Walcott whose potency would be cut in half (or more) as he ages and loses his speed In terms of attitude and ever since his first season in England the most distinctive quality of Giroud on the field has been his tirelessness Supported by massive doses of childlike enthusiasm and boundless energy he has often been one of the (if notthe) last Gunners to down tools when the result of a match was beyond salvageable And when things are going well he’s one of the loudest when it comes to celebrating his own goals and those of his teammates Unless it’s a day on which the sun decides to rise in the West there’s going to be a former player pundit ‘expert’ or one of the human caricaturesArsenal Fan TV’s Robbie Lyle discovers over the course of his travels who will be talking about the club’s shortage of leaders Wenger and Per Mertesacker are among those who have spoken of Giroud’s leadership skills and at the age of 32 with five full seasons behind him he’s one of the more senior members of the club Finally there’s his loyalty It can’t be great for his self-esteem that Arsenal’s record signing (at 52 million) Lacazette plays second fiddle to Giroud in the French national team Nevertheless the 2011/12 Ligue 1 Golden Boot winner chose not to move to Everton preferring instead to stay on and try to win the Premier League with Arsenal "I’ve been through five amazing years here so I felt like the story had to continue. There are nice days to come from me in an Arsenal shirt" he said So where does that leave Giroud and Arsenal The first matter of concern on the horizon is likely the 2018 World Cup in Russia Moving to Everton would have given Giroud regular starts and preparation for the mega event However as French national coach Didier Deschamps pointed out earlier this week "This is not ideal his playing time is reduced. I would prefer him to be in a club where he plays almost all games. He made the decision to stay at Arsenal It’s his choice It can have consequences like all other players" This brings us back to Giroud’s 100th goal and all the thoughts that may have been going through his head when his penalty kick nestled in the corner of the net When all around him players have been using their agents social media and any other tools at their disposal to wriggle wrestle or whine to secure a move to a club where they feel they will play more earn more or win more Giroud’s resolve to stay on and win trophies at Arsenal distinguishes him as a different breed of footballer altogether Unfortunately this loyalty has already cost him a fair bit and may cost him even more He’ll be 36 when the Qatar World Cup rolls around and is unlikely to turn out for France which means next year’s World Cup is more than likely to be his last one And by January if Giroud still finds minutes hard to come by it’s hard not to imagine him looking to go elsewhere — whether permanently or on loan — to play regularly and ensure he isn’t overlooked by Deschamps Additionally the striker must surely know that at this age he’s got one major payday ahead of him As mentioned above his non-reliance on speed and excellent fitness record means that he’s likely to be playing longer than other strikers and it’s safe to assume he has two to three years at the highest level ahead of him For Wenger it is going to be tricky to balance the existing system of attack and the need to do right by a loyal and proud servant of Arsenal Football Club Win matches without Giroud and he stays out of the team Lose matches forcing him back into the team and it pushes Giroud further from his goal of winning trophies with this club Sunday’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion wherein the Frenchman will most likely be on the bench is the last one before the international break We can expect to hear a lot more about the Giroud situation in the press over the next two weeks Nevertheless it’s hard to tell right now how things will pan out and the picture will probably be a lot clearer when the January transfer window opens For now it’s worth taking the time to acknowledge Giroud’s contribution to the club— largely in the face of criticism and ridicule — and bear in mind that his loyalty and patience is likely wearing thin And although it might not look like it right now losing Giroud would be a massive blow to the club Mark my wordsbut announced DA for state government employees . where anybody can get his/her pashmina shawls and stoles tested for purity and authenticity.
