It's easy for you too if you bite some little stones..
It's definitely difficult for Abra.

Yup, he needs to be our main striker. Not only because of his presence on the pitch, but also his personality. I don't believe it instills much confidence in the team when they see a frustrated Morata with a pout lip sulking, this is very bad in the big crunch games where mind wins over power. Giroud is a relentless hustler who doesn't let one kick knock him off his game, he will always have his chin up looking to help the team playing to his strengths.

To me, the jury is still out. I need to see how he does against the big sides before I can say "he should be our perma starter and we don't need to buy anybody else".

But in terms on what we currently have? Come on, I don't need to tell you who I instantly prefer.

No one said we don't need to buy an actual world class striker. Zero chance what we have is close to good enough.

I say Giroud over Morata, but that is because the only worse regular on the squad than Morata is Luiz.

Neither deserve to be in Chelsea blue. Neither should be here. Both should have been sold. Our board is shit.

If they give Luiz a contract extension until he is 34 I am going to lose my mind.

Gotta say I havn't been impressed with the previous Giroud, never rated him.

But this one under Sarri and as a target man and foil for Hazrd, he has to be our main striker.

Maybe it's because at Arsenal he had to play with shit players. With France and at Chelsea he gets to play with Hazard, Mbappe, Griezzmann etc..and no with Iwobi and Welbeck

Sounds like Marseille want him in January. If true then a quick fix should be someone like Arnautovic, very under rated striker and wouldn't be a risk.

One inconsistent striker for another inconsistent striker? Let's do this!

We certainly won't pay out 60/70 odd million for a back up option in January. We play with 1 striker, so until the summer comes we have to expect Giroud, if he goes to replaced by mediocrity.

i thought they were gonnas sign Christhian Stuani. But whiilst Giroud is useless atm, it's not really advisable to sell him. If we sell him and Morata we have no strikers to play for us in the EL, which is our best shot at CL.

It’s not me who decides the team, making the starting XI, but obviously every single player wants to play every single game.

As a competitor obviously I can’t be happy to stay on the bench, but I keep that frustration with me and try to transform it to positive energy to work hard in training.

It’s true that every time I play from the start I try to bring something to the team, to play my part. But in these 14 games I started maybe only half of them, so it’s a bit difficult to be consistent in this case. You need to play a few games in a row to be competitive, so that’s what’s a bit difficult in this last month.
