Chronicles of Arsene and a certain French forward

Arsenal's summer pains are over, it's time to get behind the team, win or lose.

Some individuals have had their say, some supported the fans, some cut Mr Wenger some slacks, but whichever side of the divide you are, life must go on, Welbeck is out injured till only physios know and Theo Walcott is as good as he was against Newcastle, Joel Campbell seems to be doing something wrongly in training and Ajax are yet to receive a fax of recall from Arsenal over Yaya Sanogo, so it's Olivier Giroud again as always.

In fairness to the French forward, he has justified his price tag, he costs only £12m remember, how unfair can it be to expect him to produce beyond his ability; sell on value of the likes of Edison Cavani, Robert Lewandowski and Ibrahimovic may have been the reason Arsene refused to trigger their clauses, but every time he sees Olivier Giroud blasting obvious goal chances towards the corner flag he'll be forced to look into the rumored £200m in the Arsenal vault and wish money could play upfront if handed a shirt.

Arsene Wenger is unpredictable, maybe he has the plans of deploying Alexis Sanchez upfront, maybe he wants to play Mesut Ozil as false 9, maybe he doesn't see what other teams are doing, or maybe the longest serving PL manager has passed his best years.

With the inconsistencies of Liverpool and Spurs, Arsenal's fourth spot finish is guaranteed, but is that the expectations of the season ticket holders?

The international break is over with Birthday boy Laurent Koscielny as the only fresh injury concern, but it's an inevitable scourge, given recent records, the boys will soon start taking turns at the theatre, since squad depth doesn't occur even once in Arsene's dictionary, it will be a long season in the latest episode of The Chronicles of Arsene and his French forward.
