No. His accuracy is poor. This year in the PL it is 43%. Last year it was 61%.
His strike rate is not much higher than a goal every 2 games - decidely average.
This year, according to PL stats, he has missed 10 (yes 10) big chances.

He doesn't excel at anything.

The agenda is real.

He has a goal every 131 minutes. Thats solid.

He has definitely been poor in quite a few games, anonymous, lost almost. There is a spark when he and Laca play together though, surely we need to tap into that.

He is a weird one, his numbers don't lie, but sometimes when you watch him you wonder how on earth he has those numbers because he looks so kack - then he does something special - like that long range boop the other day and gets us out of trouble.

Auba' is not consistent enough for me, he is wasteful of good chances.

I would rather see Laca' start, get us a couple of early goals then bring Auba' on after half time and do the fancy stuff.

Exactly how I feel. Always come back to the numbers at the end of it and can't really complain as that's his job.

He has room to improve of course, but some fans maybe need to give him a chance to. We can't just off load or bench every player that dips in form, we wouldn't have any players left. Many of our players have been inconsistent this season. I wouldn't doubt that once Emery finds his players, with his style, that you'll see many of those players find more consistency. I know it's hard, and we're all starving for success now, but we must show some patience.

A solid goal scorer - yes, agreed.
Doesn't excel at anything - and outside of solid goal scoring, he's cack.

He's a striker you moron, that's like having a go at a goalie by saying ........"All he does is save shots pfft!"

Auba has pace, good runs and can score from anywhere, how you can't rate him is retarded.

Premier league top scorer and he starts half the time on the wing.

We had a 10 million pound lamppost up front an year and a half ago.

Some perspective. We now have the PL's top scorer.

Giroud got these many in a season btw.

I agree he is a better goal scorer than Giroud.
Giroud is a better player, though.
