Walcott is not good enough for us but he is good enough for the Mancs I suppose
I would like to see Walcott move to either City, Chelsea or United. He won't strengthen their teams too much, but it will weaken Arsenal. At the moment, City, Chelsea and United have the better squads and money to go with it. We're still trying to compete for top 4. So in that sense it would be good.
A fair one though if that font of all knowledge Michael Owen is anything to go by, he's been rested lots as a youth so won't be subjected to burn out. Add into that the recovery piece in the Media Room thread. I don't see it as a bad thing tbhHe does have genuine injury concerns.
That's Wenger for you mate, its always his choice not to spend big, the money is always there.... Just look at the players that see's signed for pennies and made huge returns on.... viera 3.5m sold for 13.7mhenry 10.5m sold for 16mnasri 15.8m sold for 22mclichy Â£250k sold for 7mkolo toure Â£150,000k sold for 16madebayor Â£7m sold for Â£25movermars 7m sold for Â£25mthe list goes on................. Wenger and his scouting team have a history of picking people up for pennies and making some serious pounds when the time is right !So he never has had to dig deep and spend lots, because they have conducted thier business the right way. Not like......well...comolli ! hahahaDon't they always say they have loads to spend and then never spend it though??
I'd say we've missed that option for the last 20 years.Very good, composed finished just then with his weaker foot. One thing is for certain, his finishing and composure in front of goal has really improved. Been saying this all along. Sterling CANNOT be starting every game. We only have one proper, pacy wide forward. We need to bring at least one more in. Even if he isn't left-footed. Walcott and Sterling rotating for a single position would be a very good idea. Having one of these players on the bench coming on as an impact sub would be very helpful as well. We've missed that option this year.
Boy will fit right in to our club's idea of making sure our doctors have loads of work to do.... ;-)Walcott is injured again! My main concern is his injury record! He is so fragile, I wonder if its worth the gamble especially when you look at his salary demands.
Surely there has to be better value out there.
I'm thinking Falcao will stay true to his word and move in the summer. Leaving Chelsea with Torres until then.They are willing to let Sturridge go at the start of the window so must have someone lined up.Chelsea can offer Walcott a regular role as a wide forward and as a back up centre forward (perhaps playing him there in the cups).They can pay more than Arsenal.Arsenal will not want to let him go for free, will get a decent fee for him and already have a big pile of cash to spend.Walcott wants to stay in London.I simply don't see why he'd go to Chelsea, City or United..
United don't play inverted wingers, instead using traditionally wide wingers, and already have a dearth of strikers in Rooney, RVP, Welbeck and Chicharito. City have Tevez, Aguero, Dzeko and Balotelli, and don't even play wingers, hence why Sinclair, a similar player, has had no time. Chelsea, meanwhile, have Mata, Hazard et al in Walcott's position, and are odds on to be in for Falcao, so i really can't see them settling for Walcott with unlimited money available to get any striker anywhere..
But they've just got Moses for that role and he seems to be in very good form so i can't see them needing another?I'm thinking Falcao will stay true to his word and move in the summer.
