Theo Walcott or Olivier Giroud? Vote Here!

So far Arsenal have had a decent season, level on points at the top of the Premier League with 22 points alongside Manchester City, and although we’ve had an indifferent Champions League campaign, we did manage to beat European heavyweights Bayern Munich last week.

And things could be worse, as our friend Jose Mourinho could testify to.

But who should be Arsenals Number 1 striker?

Theo has certainly grown into the striking role this season, improving in every game. Olivier Giroud has also done well this season, despite being second fiddle to Theo for the most of our games this season.

Theo has scored 4 goals so far this season, in 9 games, while Olivier has scored 6 goals in 14 appearances. A few of those have been as substitute (for both players) so their records aren’t too bad. There was this statistic going around recently that Theo had 11 goals in 11 starts but that was slightly misleading as that went back to the 2013/2014 season as he was struggling with injuries last season.

Anyway, who do you think should be Arsenal’s first choice striker? And why?

  1. How can Olivier Giroud be leading the voting?!

    Walcott is more direct, doesn’t miss as many chances as Giroud and links up better with Alexis and Özil!

  2. Walcott started the FA Cup Final and scored the first goal which shows Arsene Wenger clearly believes he is Arsenal’s main man!

  3. Giroud is getting votes because it is a very easy choice. Walcott is BY FAR the best right winger at the club. The gap between he and Giroud up front is tiny compared to the chasm with Oxlade or whichever other lame choice we put there. Ramsey only works there as he has to protect RB when Bellerin bombs forward. But anyway Theo should be right wing. Then we would have a sack more goals from places other than the striker.
