    He was in stunning form today. Almost everything he tried worked. Shop window time for him, I guess.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Can't believe Shane Long didn't make the top 3!

    Those phonetic spellings at the end aren't right.

    Dunno whether it's been mentioned before but what's with all the machine gun celebrations recently?

    Was giroud good today? Another blank on fantasy football is making want to offload him but if the generally feeling is he is playing well then I will keep him for Xmas period?
    I personally would never have him in my fantasy, based on current and previous evidence.

    Giroud: 1223 mins, 7 goals, 4 assists.

    Lukaku: 938 mins, 8 goals, 3 assists.

    Let's keep going on this comparison.
    A good test is if we had Lukkaku and you lost had Giroud, would Arsenal fans still try and claim the latter is better?

    I suspect not.

    Both good players , Giroud is more developed/has a bit more to his game.

    Think there's a good chance lukaku will become the better player but it's not happened yet IMO

    They're slightly different players if you ask me. Both lead the line, but I'm not convinced Lukaku has the extra bit of craft that Giroud has. That's not to say he won't be score more goals in be a 'better' player.

    They're also playing slightly different roles in their teams too. Giroud is all about bringing others, especially our midfielders, into play.

    Serie A is not what it once was. Have you notice how most of the players who come to the Premier League from Italy struggle? Gaston Ramirez, Lamela, Borini, Aquilani and other I can't think of. Coutinho has somewhat bucked that particular trend.
    That's always been the case tbf. With a very few exceptions like Zola, Italians rarely settle well in England.
    Of course of that list only Borini and Aquilani are Italian.

    I think as many players struggle when they come from Spain as from Italy. Germany, Holland and France have always been the best feeder leagues for the PL as they're more physical and quicker.

    They both have that exact same responsibility, plus pressing up front and scoring/assisting goals.

    We both play a very similar system.

    Brilliant. The first player that came to mind was Charlie Adam.
