Curious case of Theo Walcott

Posted by VA10 over 2 years ago · 11 replies

The hell isn't Theo getting minutes? Last full season he had (12/13 before that damned injury) he registered 21 goals and 16 assists if I recall correctly. Surely he has to get 90 minutes against West Sausage? Get it? Because it's West Ham.

For me he's a first name on the team sheet. The issue must run deeper than him not being 'good enough defensively'.

Well these come to mind.

  • He's not fit psychologically (knee ligaments go by stopping fast or turning quickly)
  • Contract talks
  • I read a headline somewhere saying his son had a heart surgery, not sure if true or when it took place.

God damn it how do I make a list on this machine?

It was pretty humiliating yesterday when Wenger told him to get ready to come on and subbed in Ramsey instead.

Wenger states that he's just being cautious with him.

“He is all right now. With the cruciate, before the age of 25 you come back and you continue to develop normally,” he said. “A cruciate after 28 is much more problematic.

"He is a natural athlete and a sprinter, and a very straight-line sprinter. It means every shock he gets is at full power."

“He is ready now to play games. But when a player has been out for a year, when he comes back he always thinks he is ready. When you speak to him three weeks later and ask him if he thinks he really was ready [before] he says, ‘Now I realise, no’.

“I have been holding him back because he has been out for a long time and for the fact there is intense competition.”

I saw DeanLDN22 joking about Sterling for Walcott.

I know he was taking the piss but if a supreme youth talent like Sterling comes available we need to sign him, and if Theo is to make way then sorry Theo; I think you're a great player but fuck me Sterling is incredible.
