Koscielny tips Giroud for big season

Laurent Koscielny has hailed Olivier Giroud’s good form telling media in France that his teammate is looking very confident in front of goal.

Speaking ahead of France’s World Cup qualifier with Georgia, the centre-back had only good things to say about a man who has scored four goals in five games this season.

“It’s true that Olivier has started the new season with a bang. During pre-season he scored a lot of goals so you feel he’s confident.

“We always say that you improve in your second season in England so I hope he keeps going, both for him and especially Arsenal.”

Meanwhile, Bacary Sagna is hoping that his form at Arsenal can be replicated at international level even if that means challenging for a centre-back spot with Les Bleus.

Eager to give manager Didier Deschamps a headache ahead in the build-up to the World Cup in Brazil, the defender explained that he’s desperate to regain his place.

“My goal is to put the coach in trouble by giving the maximum for the jersey and my France teammates.

“I’m happy to play in any position. I’ve been playing as a centre-back at Arsenal having moved from the right. [Lilian] Thuram did the same in the past and I don’t see why I can’t do it too.”

If ade reached 30 goals in one season for us, i dont see why Giroud wont. He has the midfield to support him and is way better.

ckmma

I feel the same, I really didn’t think Giroud would bring his pre-season form to this season but he really has. So much so my mate a Chelsea fan made Giroud his captain in fantasy football and hes raking in points!

ghanagunner

well it was a no brainer for me. i made him captain of all my fantasy league teams. with Ozil around now i guess i have to drop carzola and choose him.

Merlin's Panini

I captained Giroud, I got 18 point off him this week!
Giroud, Walcott and Cazorla are the golden triumverate of fantasy football.
Now Özil is in I’m also not sure whether to replace one of them. I might leave it for now in case it takes him time to settle.

Ooh Gooner

i think as a fantasy premier league manager, i will stick with giroud upfront, and walcott. Giroud will benefit the most, and walcott follows. I mean in Ozil you got a provider who will give giroud and theo 100 through balls a season, and walcott is really clinical nowadays. So expect Giroud and Theo to shine, and shine, and shine… COYG

Obviously, Adebayor read your comment.

…and his cousin Wannabuywhore.

Gooner Splat T Spuds

Fucking interlull!!!

I want to see our man play in the red and white (bah, first game sunderland away… so the yellow and blue!)

Zorro in the box

Ozil’s arrival should give Giroud the boost he needs to hit the 20 goal mark ASAP

2013-2014 = 2003-2004

Boys be ambitious… with Ozil’s arrival hopefully HFB can hit the 20-goal mark (all competitions) before the New Year!

Harsh

‘course you can, bac, i don’t doubt it

Ailsybird

Giröud – what a ridebag. Le swöön.

Sö excited for this season, CÖYG!

oluseg01

Giroud has realy surprise me ,can’t wait to see the handsome french man replicating the form of thierry herrny

Arsenal-induced Heart Attack Survivor

Have we signed anyone yet? I’m sorry, i was hiding under a rock in fear of anticipation.

Arsene's stylist

We re-signed Flamini and Silvestre.
Our late bid for Eric Djemba Djemba got rejected 🙁

11

And 1pur0 swapped Bale for Ozil, the lucky bastards.

Arsenal-induced Heart Attack Survivor

Öh wait…!

The Fonz
el bahja

OG12 this season is gonna be a bang!!! COYG

gunnerLove

OG12 + OZIL=GOAL

chris

would piss myself if Giroud scores more than RVP. he has a genuine opportunity to by being surrounded by Ozil, Santi and Theo. Compare that to Young, Valencia and Thomas fucking Cleverly. LOL

onwuachumba Anthony

Don’t have fear any longer arsenal is on a rescue mission with giroud,ozil,flamini.so don’t touch that dail

Arsenal-induced Heart Attack Survivor

Isaw the Liv-MU and MU-Chelsea games. Good riddance, that RvP fellow.

Edu's fake passport

Good riddance to the guy that single handedly won his team the league last year?

Arsenal-induced Heart Attack Survivor

No no, to the guy who complains like a sissy when dispossessed fairly. And picks a fight with an opponent just because he’s losing.

OzGooner

Try not to leave out the pensioner; Ryan Giggs.

Edu's fake passport

Don’t forget Felliani, mwahh ha ha!!

heroldgoon

There’s genuinely a positive feeling around the club. I love it. Giroud is finally insync, if he and walcott loved santis passes then they gonna orgasm for Ozils!!

gunnershabz

oh i cant wait for ozil to turn up this guy is an assist machine

giroud cant complain along with walcott

Ozziegun

Don’t care what they do with France as long as they come back without injuries

Mikel Artekkers

Well I hope they don’t hang around some members of the team…

…looking at you Mr. Ribery.

Goon

We haven’t seen the best of Giroud yet. He did make a few errors against Sp*rs with his first touch not being as good as usual. But he is using his strength really well. His good form will also help take some pressure off Sanogo, who I think will soon be giving Giroud a run for his money.

RSA_GOONER

Hopeful prediction: Santi to feel pressured by Ozil arrival. He ups his game and wins us the champions league, uefa player of the year is between 3 Arsenal players and RVP begs for for a transfer out of Moyes hell…..we can all dream cant we 🙂

Dave Gooner

Don’t want Robin back thanks. Under any circumstances

Leandro

Not back to Arsenal, in the dream scenario he’d transfer from Manchester to FC Tom Tomsk.

henry

van Persie’s inner boy: f.ck! lets go back to Arsenal and score and win. We are Arsenal fan, aren’t we?
van Persie: forget it. Giroud and Koscielny there.

Merlin's Panini

van Persie’s inner boy: I just did a poo
van Persie: Great, now I’m full off shit
van Persie’s inner boy: I thought you were already

girouzil

language wont be a barrier for Ozil-Giroud patnership. They will just CLICK cos its in them.

Edu's fake passport

No because they both speak fluent English.

Dajones360

I think this should be one of Ozil’s songs at the Grove.

He sees a pass like none other,
opposition give up, don’t even bother.
His name is OZIL!!! OOOZIL!!!

Sagnas Indestructible Neck

Giroud/Bendtner
Poldi/Rosicky Walcott/Ox
Ozil/Santi
Wilshere/Arteta Ramsey/Flamini
Gibbs/Nacho Kos/Verm Mertesacker Sagna/Jenkinson
Scz/Fab

Bench: Sanogo, Viviano, Diaby, Ryo, Gnabry, Zelalem, Frimpong

Note: It looks to me as though Giroud and Mertescker may be our most important men this season. They simply cannot get injured. If they do we simply don’t have the height at the back nor the quality up top.

adam

Off topic if you can say that about OZIL,but does anyone agree with me on that giving number 11 to Ozil,that is Bale’S might actually be ment to annoy Captain Spud aka Daniel Levy? He tried to block our move for Ozil after all, so it is only fair IMHO that whenever he will watch Ozil play for Arsenal he will be reminded of who made him available for us by selling Bale to RM:)

Fergie the Gooner

Coincidental I think, but hopefully it will be a painful reminder for Levy in the derby at shite hart lane.

DLDC

I know this opinion is not shared by many here but I am sorta glad for this Interlull. This means that for the next 2 weeks Arteta, TV, Ox, and Podolski will not miss any games of consequence. For that matter, I hope Bac cannot break into the France squad. I think he could use the rest.

Merlin's Panini

Yeh, he must be exhausted from all the pooing him and Jack were doing at the weekend.

Fin

It’s no bad thing gives everyone a chance to get a breather and knocks 2 weeks off the injury waiting list of all the lads. Hopefully the momentum we’ve been picking up won’t stall but with the Ozil (still can’t work out umlauts on this bloody keyboard) signing boost I think we’ll be fine. I suppose the big downside is having to wait to see our new no.11! Germany game will be getting alot more North London/international gooner viewers me thinks!

Biskaz

This season is going to be interesting with all our world class players.

wiya

bad luck dutch skunk

leave wenger for fergie

get moyes

Piers Morgan's punchable face

I’m looking forward to seeing van-Judas struggle to get onto half-arsed knock downs from Fellaini =D

Moyes is trying to implement what he knows best lol !

JHSong

Plus, Mesut will be a great supporter fot OG12.
Maybe we can see him at the top of the goal rank at the end of this season.
Giroud made an astonishing start at this season compare to last one.

Arseniel

@ Fergie the gooner. Did you mean ‘Shite Fart Pain’ ??

Mesut Motherfucking Özil

EPIC SCENARIO
Van Cuntsie goes to ManU to win trophies…..
Arsenal win Premier League, Champions league and FA cup,
Giroud wins golden boot.
ManU finish 6th.
Cuntsie cries his cunt off.
LOL enjoy your cleverleys and valencias, we have Mesut Motherfucking Özil!

penfield

Beware : One signing of utter awesomeness does not a championship team make…

yet.

Ramesh

We are all allowed to dream aren’t we?

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Love the picture. “Arsenal sign Ozil (imagine the bloody dots). Giroud Walking On Air.”

maaaah

I think our team is much stronger than last season, not just cause of the players that came but with the players that left. Gervinho and Santos were like game losers and the fact that Wenger persisted with him to give him a chance meant that the better player Ox didnt get no time. I think we have better depth this season than last cause we can have players like wilshere, monreal, vilviano, TV5, Podolski and rosicky on the bench without sacrificing our first teams strength. Im just hoping TV5 regains his form cause form is temporary class is permanent… Read more »
