The ORNSTEIN has spoken and he says we’ve landed Lacazette.
Great news. I mean, if you accept our level and where we are, it’s the best we could do.
He comes with bags of goals. He’s super incisive in front of the net, he’s quick and he boasts the finesse Giroud has at bringing others into the game (being serious there, he’s a good link up guy).
Is he elite? I have my doubts.
Will he take the edge off losing Sanchez? Maybe. Kind of feel he’s a bit like being given a paracetamol when you’ve just cut your finger off in a lawnmower. Time will tell.
If we follow up with Lemar, at least we’ll have two new players to get excited about.
Pretty much the only interesting thing said in yesterday’s fan washout, was that Arsene just wants first team players, he’s not interested in building out numbers.
Not great news, because that means he’s not going to hit up a fire sale.
He’s also not making any serious changes to his backroom staff. So it’s basically going to be more of the same next year.
So it’s basically going to be more of the same next year.
Will that lead us to Champions League places? Maybe. Will it win us the league? Doubtful.
As for the Q&A, it’s not even worth talking about. Ivan Gazidis has disappointed me. We know he’s in it for the cash. He is part of a corrupt sporting system that celebrates and rewards mediocrity. His job is to make you feel proud of being classy and average. He does a good job of that.
Very disappointing, but it is what it is. We backed the wrong owner. This is us for the time being.
NOW LISTEN TO THE FREAKING PODCAST YEAH?
