I finally managed to catch some football (albeit pre-season) over the weekend. Apart from Real Madrid 2 - Everton 1, I also managed to catch Arsenal vs. Napoli and bit parts of Arsenal vs. Galatasaray.
Arsenal can 'construct' plays. Wilshere gives them a great drive from deep in midfield while I'm surprised to see than Thomas Rosicky can bring quite a bit of spark as a '10'. Arsenal however are clearly in great need of a reliable goalscorer to finish the plays they 'construct.'
Giroud did score a nice, semi-bicycle kick vs. Napoli. He remains however, in my opinion, a class below an Arsenal-calibre first-choice striker. Not many left in the market - the Gunners need a Gunner badly. They REALLY need to make a move in the market. Immediately.
