1. You mean lone surely as lonely is a person who stays by himself.
2. If you are with Arsenal keep alternating him with GIROUD. Give him games and he'll start good.

If the FCs dont score and you are loosing vital points, then it's probably the tactics and not the players.

i signed him for 26million as well in my Liverpool save playing 4 defenders 1 dm 2cm 2wingers 1st
first 3 games are cardiff,west brom and shrewsbury and he has 3 apps 2 goals and 1 assist
so hes doing well in the Advanced Forward for me

He doesn't have the attributes to play as a lone striker, he is not strong enough.

rich i disagree hes played very well for me as an AF in a lone striker role he scores some goals and gets some assists by laying the ball off to my wingers/inside forwards

Just the case of giving him time mate. If i buy a striker regardless of his age or whatever or f he is better than what i have. If i really need to play him i will but i will just ease him in and give him time to gel.

3 games in is nothing. To me it takes half a season ny on a season to get most new signing to gel etc
