Super striker WILL sign for Arsenal to WIN Premier League 1

Posted on May 25, 2015 by admin

You get the idea from his words that he might well not have agreed to put pen to paper and sign a contract with Arsenal if he did not really believe that the Gunners could end our long wait to be crowned the champions of England once more.

The deal has not been done yet either but it sounds very much like the England international forward Theo Walcott is ready to commit his future to Arsenal, as revealed in a Daily Star report.

FOUR star Arsenal marching on to Wembley 0

It was starting to get a bit twitchy for Arsenal fans in recent weeks, even though the point against Sunderland on Wednesday had made sure that we would finish above Man United and go straight into the Champions League group stage, no passing go and no playing two play off games.

So the Gunners were under pressure to beat an in form West Brom today, or we were for about five minutes until Theo Walcott picked up the ball on the right of the penalty area and unleashed a fearsome shot that gave Myhill no chance. Arsenal were already looking good and confident and that early goal settle any nerves.

SHOCK Arsenal starting XI for Sunderland clash! 1

Posted on May 20, 2015 by admin

With Arsene Wenger having spoken about consistency and cohesion in the build up to this last but one game of the Premier League campaign, most people were not expecting many changes to the Arsenal team. And with the Frenchman having selected the same line up for the last six league games in a row, it could easily have been seven.

But a touch of flu for Laurent Koscielny means that Wenger is likely to start Gabriel and I do not think the changes will stop there. I am actually expecting Wenger to pull a bit of a surprise on Sunderland and their manager Dick Advocaat who will surely have prepared his team to nullify our passing and creative game.

Arsenal starting XI for Swansea – Wilshere IN 2

Posted on May 11, 2015 by admin

The injury to the Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has forced the hand of Arsene Wenger a little, even though the Welshman is back in training I do not think Wenger can take any risks.

With Ramsey having been played on the right in recent games though, the manager has got a few options in the Arsenal squad, with Theo Walcott clearly one of them. But I feel that he will go with Jack Wilshere, just as he did when making the change against Hull City last Monday.

Meet the striker set to challenge Giroud for Arsenal place!! 2

Posted on May 11, 2015 by admin

The former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry suggested recently that his fellow countryman Olivier Giroud was not quite up to the job of spearheading the Gunners as we try to get back to the very top of English football, as we were when Monsieur Henry was tearing up EPL defences with his pace and finishing power.

And although Arsene Wenger reacted to this by suggesting that his former star player was wrong about the current first choice centre forward, it seems as though the boss may be in agreement with Henry after all, because he is planning to have a serious rival to Giroud in the Arsenal team next season and that player is Theo Walcott.

Arsenal taking BIG risk playing Alexis Sanchez today? 0

Posted on February 15, 2015 by admin

It was a big surprise to see the name of Alexis Sanchez on the Arsenal team sheet today for the visit of \MIddlesborough in the fifth round of the FA cup. We had been told that the Chilean striker was not likely to play as his knee was still swollen after Tuesday night.

We know that Sanchez always wants to play and that this is an important game for the Gunners, but Wenger has made lots of changes, giving the likes of Chambers, Flamini, Gabriel and Gibbs rare starts. And with Theo Walcott finding his form and fitness, it is not as if the manager did not have a good option to play instead of Sanchez.

Arsenal fringe players Sparkle and suggest good times ahead 0

Posted on January 25, 2015 by admin

It might be a bit harsh to call Mesut Ozil, Tomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott fringe players for Arsenal, because a lot of fans will count those three as some of the very best and most talented Gunners that Arsene Wenger has available.

The fact is though, that for various reasons they have not been a big part of the season so far for Arsenal. Well they certainly put down a marker today and gave the manager the sort of headache that football pundits always say is the sort of problem that you want. All three scored, all three played well, so they will want to know the reason if they are dropped for the games coming up.

Second string Arsenal to overcome weakened Hull? 0

Posted on January 04, 2015 by admin

Both managers have made a number of changes to their starting line-ups from new years day, but Arsenal look much the stronger after Steve Brice made a massive 10 compared to Arsene Wenger’s five. And you would expect our fringe players, like Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Joel Campbell to have too much quality for the visitors Hull City.

The major talking point for Arsenal fans is the first start in a year for our England international star Theo Walcott. The speedy forward will join Campbell and Alexis in a very pacy looking Arsenal attack, with the skills of Cazorla and Rosicky behind them.

Arsenal star to shine on injury anniversary? 0

Posted on January 04, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal and England international Theo Walcott could be set to really get his football career back on track today, almost exactly a year after he was stretchered off in the Gunners’ FA cup triumph over our north London rivals Tottenham.

The lasting image of that moment was a grinning Walcott taunting the spuds from his stretcher but as we know, that happiness soon turned to misery as the extent of his injury became clear. If the 25-year old does start for Arsene Wenger today, it will be the first time since that day, but Theo has not wasted his recovery time, as a Sky Sports report explains.

MORE injury woe leaves Arsenal stretched to breaking point 0

Posted on December 05, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger should just about be able to muster up an Arsenal starting XI and a subs bench to take to the Britannia stadium to face one of our bogey clubs Stoke City tomorrow, but only just. The manager gave his latest injury update today, reported by Arsenal.com, and there is very little good news to report.

It is now 11 months since Theo Walcott injured his anterior cruciate ligament in the win over the Spuds and he is still not available to play. He is due to have an injection to solve the slight groin problem picked up on international duty with England. The boss is hoping to have him back next weekend.
