So Theo Walcott came of age, replacing Beckham as number 7 scoring a hatrick for England and replacing Thierry as 14 for Arsenal, sounds like Theo o’clock to me, we have always backed Theo to shine here on Le Grove and last night Capello showed us all why we should cut him lose at the Arsenal.
Imagine a front line of Nasri, Robin, Ade and Theo coming at you, the premiership should be shitting their pants, my oh my, if we could defend as well we’d be unstoppable, I hope this makes Wenger think twice about the right side of midfield now, Theo hit the ball when he had a chance and he doesn’t do that for Arsenal because he lacks confidence, I hope this will give it to him, the hatrick against Germany kick started Owens career, maybe this one will kick start Theo’s.
Blackburn will be the perfect place to show what we have, a tough team at a tough ground and up north in the frozen wastes, with Fabregas pulling the strings in midfield and supplying those four, well I for one can’t wait.
The commentators were saying that Theo was playing a free role up front, I saw him as a right winger with a forwards touch, yes he did drift, but he went back to defend and his goals came from the wings.
At least last night served to stop all the Appiah talk, maybe we can watch the pundits giving it large for one of ours now, he showed Rooney how to finish, his shots were a cross between Overmars, Anelka and Pires, he’s English and he plays for Arsenal. Deep joy I say.
I return home to write a blog on an England win from an Arsenal player, and the last time that happened I think Ian Wright scored 4 against San Marino, if it wasn’t 4 it was a lot so who cares, the headlines are ours today.
However, in your euphoria please spare a thought for Modric, he may have looked shit and he may have only be three foot six inches tall and he may have cost the free spending spuds £16 million, but that really is no excuse to laugh yourselves sensless, bragging is not big, it’s not clever, I mean, I don’t do it do I?
Also a quick mention to David ‘up himself’ Bentley, where were you last night Mr ex right winger for England? Theo was grateful for your advice about moving on if he wants to succeed like you, but said concentrate on your own game, why I bang ’em in for England you spud tosser.
That’s it then so Theo enjoy your day in the sun, you deserve it and let’s hope this is the start of something beautiful for the Arsenal.
Have a great day Grovers this could be our season, and remember the saying, one swallow does in fact make a summer!
