Wenger pleased at Giroud anger

Olivier Giroud is busy being angry with himself following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw in the north London derby this weekend, but Arsene Wenger is happy.

Happy that Giroud is angry with himself you understand.

In comments made after the clash with Tottenham Hotspur - relayed kindly by the Evening Standard - Wenger confirmed his striker was angry with himself for missing a flurry of chances, but that he would be worried if the Frenchman had reacted any other way.

"He is very angry. I'm pleased," Wenger said post-match.

"When you see players happy to miss chances you can worry. He is a real goalscorer, he did try."

Giroud has been criticised in the past for not scoring enough goals when he leads the line, but fans can’t deny that he makes every effort to get on the scoresheet.

Morgan's rant

One man who was far from happy with Arsenal’s draw was Piers Morgan, who criticised the fact that the Gunners have to rely on Giroud and Joel Campbell whereas once they had Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

Throughout the game, Morgan frequently tweeted about Giroud in particular - not that fans are ever really concerned about what he says, of course.

Of course, not all supporters shared his view:

Debuchy's comments on his future

Rounding us off nicely it’s over to transfer news, where French defender Mathieu Debuchy has sparked questions over his future in north London with his latest comments.

The right-back, who appears to have lost his place in the starting XI to the young Hector Bellerin, said he would remain concentrated until December before reevaluating his situation.

It’s purported that Italian giants AS Roma are interested in signing the former Newcastle United man. That’s certainly a switch that would keep him in the swing of competing for major trophies.
