Oliver Giroud has come out stating that he’s been unlucky. Here’s our French Striker’s exact words:
“I think I’m a little unlucky. I’ll keep going and continue to work hard in training. People say to me, ‘the goal is coming soon, don’t worry, we trust you’ and it’s very important for me to feel the support of people and my team-mates.”
“I try [to score], I try all I can. Sometimes you need to keep the faith, to keep going. When you are a striker, sometimes it’s difficult. I don’t know why, but I do try to do the right thing.’
“We are good team. Although we lost against Chelsea I think it was an accident. We are confident for the future and I am confident. I don’t worry about the future. The goals are coming soon.”
I want to believe Giroud. I want to put my faith in him but his whole argument is wrong. He’s basing his goal drought on luck and unfortunately, I don’t agree on that. When you a top, top striker, you not going into every game with the expectation that the ball will land on your feet and that the goalkeeper will be chatting to someone in the crowd. You go out and make your own luck.
I cringe when I hear strikers talking about luck. Their entire career is then based on the premise that fate is either on their side or not. And I’m sorry, but if you going to play for us then that’s not acceptable. I don’t dislike Giroud, I just think he’s down on confidence. He needs to go and score now. Not because he was lucky but because he was born to do that. That’s what I want to hear from strikers. They need to be a little arrogant and cocky because it shows confidence and confidence is all you need when you in front of goal. Get the job done, Giroud.
