I’m not sure why this bothers me, but it does. Oliver Giroud has come out today saying that he has been impressed by Eden Hazard. We all know that Hazard has talent, he wouldn’t be playing for Chelsea at only 21 if he didn’t have something special. Something we’ve been told so many times its actually sickening now. This isn’t about jealously either, if that’s what you thinking. I’m jealous of Real Madrid for having Ronaldo- that’s the only player I’m jealous of that isn’t playing for Arsenal.
So I’m not jealous. Got it? No, what bugs me, is that Arsenal players won’t shut up about Hazard. There’s sportsmanship and then there’s excessive ego pumping. Is it a tactic to say Eden Hazard is good? Who knows? I just wish, we can accept the player is good, say it once, then get on with life. It’s annoying when a new signing praises other clubs players. Look down at the badge you wearing, say something good about the coach, the reserves, the youth team, your own squad! I’m personally tired of this constant need to praise other clubs players-they get enough of that from their own club.
All I see these days, is Giroud in the headlines. He’s either talking about not scoring for France, or that we need to ease the pressure off him, he’s not RVP, he loves Hazard- and that’s just today! Oh come on, man! If he did half as much training as he does talking then maybe he might go score some goals. The funny thing is no one is actually telling him that he needs to go score goals immediately. I’m prepared to give him time to settle, despite him being a striker.
I don’t care if he didn’t score in the next ten matches so long as he had a good work ethic, good positioning and even made an assist or two. That’s all we really asking from him. Nobody expects him to replicate RVP, if he did, it would be terrible-that chimp took 8 seasons to come good! No, we saying just go out on the pitch and play a decent game and keep your dear diary moments in your head.
