Mick Jagger Has The Moves Like Olivier Giroud

Do you know what I hate in football? I hate it when people are quick to write someone off before they've even had a chance to prove themselves.

At the beginning of his Arsenal career, Olivier Giroud was never going to have it easy. He was following in the footsteps of Robin van Persie. A player who scores more freely than Marouane Chamakh in a Moroccan strip club. 

People try to compare him to Robin van Persie. And the comparisons are unfair. Giroud is simply Giroud. He isn't van Persie. He doesn't have a little boy inside of him. He is just a sexy French beast who plays in a completely different way to his Dutch counterpart.

It was always going to take time for Giroud to settle into English football, and the Arsenal way. Yet some people were so Giroud, I mean rude, at times to him. They expected instant success and the truth is he needed time to adapt.

How many players come to England and set the league on fire straight away? Not many in my book. And the fact that Giroud was only used sparingly, with a forehead called Gervinho taking his place, at first didn't help matters for him.

He was playing in dribs and drabs and anyone that plays, or played, football knows that getting into the flow of a game is very difficult. Especially with only 10 or 15 minutes here and there.

Of course, Arsene Wenger was only easing Giroud in at first. Completely understandable. But people should have understood they wasn't seeing the real player because he wasn't getting the real chance to showcase his ability.

Little bits of game time here and there is not easy. When a player like Gervinho, who couldn't finish his dinner, is playing in front of him, then I should imagine it can be demoralising too.

However I saw enough of Giroud in these little moments to think we have a decent player on our hands. Unlike Osama Bin Laden he never went hiding. Not only that, he worked hard and was still getting himself into scoring positions.

The movement of Giroud is exceptional. In fact, I would say that Mick Jagger has the moves like Giroud. And that is a compliment. He (Giroud) is awesome round the box, and while I'd say Jagger is awesome round the, um, box too, I think Olivier just shades it. Although Jagger has bigger lips.

We have a real player on our hands here and apparently Fulham turned him down in the summer. Whether that's true or not I don't care because, in my opinion, their loss is our gain.

Now Giroud is getting a run of games we are starting to see why Arsenal spent a few quid on him. Some at first tried comparing him to van Persie, then a donkey and now I am even seeing people say he is the white Didier Drogba. Some change around! 

Its a bolder shout than Steve Bould but Olivier Giroud will go all the way. He will become world class. I know that is hyping him up no end and puts pressure on them beautiful shoulders but he has all the tools to become one of the best strikers in the world.

Time is on his side and I while think he will go on to have a fantastic season this campaign, watch him go next season and in the future.
