Is it Walcott’s time? A look at history

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

It might seem premature to write this when contract negotiations are still up in the air, but if Arsenal history is anything to go by, when one star leaves another unlikely one usually steps up from within the ranks to surprise everyone. I’ve been one of his biggest critics over the years so I can […]

We got our Arsenal back

arshavin walcott

We’ve seen some absolutely mad games over the last couple of years, and this one probably tops the lot. At the end of the night, an early-round League Cup game I hadn’t thought that much about ended with a final score of Reading 5-7 Arsenal. At half time the Arsenal fans sang “we want our […]

Square pegs in round holes

Aaron-Ramsey

I’m sure you’ll all be familiar – even those who did not read my match preview – with the statistics flying around before yesterday’s game. Needless to say, Schalke ended a very strong run of form in Champions League home games for Arsenal. As for actual, more immediate form, Arsenal looked much the same as […]

Wenger needs to play Walcott if he hopes to re-sign him

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

If Arsene Wenger was a 23-year-old England international who has represented his country at just about every level with 51 goals and 41 helpers to his credit, and knows that several other Premier League teams are interested in him, he’d want to be playing regular first-team football. The Arsenal manager had better keep this in […]

At least Theo Walcott circus will be over by Aug. 31

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

It’s almost not worth writing articles during the transfer window these days since you don’t know who to believe unless you actually talk to the players themselves. And even some of them don’t have clue what’s going on. Looking over the headlines regarding Theo Walcott and his contract negotiations with Arsenal you’ll see there are […]

Constant change harming Arsenal

Alex Song

It struck me yesterday that Arsenal’s starting lineup against Sunderland was almost an entirely different team from even two seasons ago. After years of being fairly quiet in the transfer market (apart from selling the occasional top player and signing the occasional teenager), Arsenal have now gone the other way: last summer saw Clichy, Fabregas […]

Deja vu, all over again

RVP 2012

We’ve been here before, haven’t we? Too many times. Star player…club captain…one-man team…selling club. The words have lost all meaning. Though I have been toughened up by so many recent experiences (or perhaps simly grown numb to the modern running of Arsenal FC) I have to, as ever, express my disappointment at Arsene Wenger and […]

Walcott Comes Alive

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

Forget about Peter Frampton. Theo Walcott might have been on the pitch for just 30 minutes, but the Arsenal forward could very well have been the man of the match in England’s exciting 3-2 win over Sweden in their Euro 2012 tilt on Friday. With Manchester City’s James Milner being pulled off in the 61st […]

Walcott ‘was off to Liverpool ’til Dalglish was axed’

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

THEO Walcott is not a good footballer. Those are the, er, wise words from former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson, who these days earns his corn as a pundit. Now, I am not as clever or experienced as Robson when it comes to football. But am I alone in thinking that, in fact, Walcott is a […]

Theo Walcott suddenly a hot item

Tougher tests to come, but the confidence is flowing

What next for this team?

There comes a time in every relationship where you have to wonder, “where is this going?”. That’s where I am with Arsenal right now. My love for the club is strong, but they’re so up and down I wonder how well I really know them. I think I’ll end the relationship metaphor there, as I’m […]
