The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has finally reached his target of 20 goals this season, and feels that the club has finally achieved some consistency after having trouble finding their form earlier in the season.
Although he has reached a personal milestone he is more worried about the club’s position right now. “Twenty goals was my target for the season. I said a few weeks back that I was short on goals but I wanted the team to be where we should be rather than reaching my personal goals.
“I really want us to get Champions League football because we deserve it. We have been up and down this season, and so have a lot of clubs, but we are getting the points on the board now when it matters.
“Every game this season is very difficult – for example, Tottenham only scored their winner in the last five minutes against Southampton.
“Every game is tight and everyone is fighting for their lives. We know teams will have to come at us but we have great strength on the counter-attack and hopefully we can utilise that.”
All eyes will be on Wednesdays crusial decided between Chelsea and Tottenham, and if the Blues can keep their excellent run going and get at least a draw at Stamford Bridge, then it is simply up to Arsenal to win their last two games. I hope they don’t make us suffer as much as they have done in the last few matches!
One thought on “Walcott: Arsenal are clicking when it matters most – and deserve Top Four”
Arsenal is a big club and fans need not to be subjected to all these form of stress! WENGER and the bloody board must put their acts together and sign quality players to enable the club to once more challenge. No more pinning hopes in Diaby, Squid, Djorou etc! If not Wenger and his board should go!
