Re: Lacazette is not an upgrade on Giroud

Whether or not Lacazette is an upgrade hinges on how he deals with a loss of form, lads. The type of goals he scores honestly doesn't determine anything.

Giroud is prone to ridiculously long periods without finding the net - like, literally months - but if Lacazette is more regular throughout the course of a nine-month season then he's a massive upgrade, regardless of whether every single goal is a five-yard tap in.

The best strikers in the Premier League typically don't go more than two or three weeks without finding the net. That's what held Giroud back, which means it held us back.

Judge Lacazette on how he reacts to periods of not scoring goals. That's the only gauge. Comparing and contrasting his goals and Giroud's is a waste of time because the manner in which Giroud scored was never the issue - it was the frequency.
