Olivier Giroud has never been a fan favourite at the Emirates, and at the start of the new season he isn’t helping himself with his no-show against Besiktas on Tuesday night.
With reports that Arsenal are still in the market for a striker, you would expect the Frenchman to prove to his boss there’s no need to splash the cash before the transfer window closes… but not it seems Arsene Wenger will need to conduct a bit of last-minute transfer business to ease the Gunners fans.
Here are some Tweets showcasing the fans’ disappointment in Giroud’s performance.
@Arsenal last night’s game against Besiktas was a write off,Wenger must go get a striker,Giroud is just not it.

Frustrates me having Giroud as our main striker.Hopeless again last night. — Shaun (@ShaunFromKent) August 20, 2014
If people think we can compete sufficiently with Giroud as our striker you should stop watching football.

feel for the fans in other countries that stay up till 2am & see Giroud… then see his performance yesterday. They are the real victims. — RightInDebuchy (@EmanDaGoon) August 20, 2014

So Arsene doesnt want to buy a prolific striker this season again? Why call Giroud a gunner when he couldn’t shoot last night? — UCCJNr. (@DisturbingAfrik) August 20, 2014
How many more woeful performances before Arsene finally realizes Monsieur Giroud is not gonna lead us anywhere?

Still trying to forget about Giroud’s performance last night, he was so so horrible — Gooner_esque (@lloydfame) August 20, 2014
Can’t Wenger see that Giroud isn’t just good enough? Look at Aguero, Diego Costa, Dzeko, and other top 6 strikers.. Giroud is way behind.
