Theo Walcott

Post by Raptorgunner on Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:45 pm

talks are in the very early stages, with no formal offer made by Arsenal and no demands put on the table by Walcott's representatives.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Tal
You think he will stay or leave Arsenal? I have mixed feelings about Theo, he is unpredictable, most English players are good shooters and have good technique and Theo seems to lack both of them. He is surrounded by great players, and Wenger is a great teacher, not sure why he has not improved on his techniques.

I think he will stay at Arsenal and I hope he can improve his game, for the past few games it looks like we have been playing with 10 men he is just not been there. When players looking for new contract they play much better but not sure what Theo is thinking missing one on one and missing everything was just sad.

If he signs a new contract and plays the same way next year for sure Chamberlain will take his place and could lose his place in England.

Walcott reminds me of NBA players that cant make a free throw and air ball it. Very Happy

They get paid big money to practice and get better at what they have to do.

On his day he can ruin any team we all know that. We have seen him score goals like he did at Stamford bridge and have seen him miss some real sitters. Only thing I want from him is to be consistent.

Theo is a funny one. I don't think that with him it is a matter of practicing skills. We have seen him on occasion look like a world class player, and as stated above "ruin teams". I think that his problem and Gervinho’s is more in how they mentally interpret what his happening in the game at any given time. I am just not sure that they see the entire field all the time. So when Theo has the ball going down the side and he can’t run past his player. Or gervinho goes to dribble past someone and he can’t lose them they both get lost and do not know what to do.
Which is a skill that you cannot really practice.

Walcotts problem is that he is too fast for his own good, he thinks too fast and sometimes he crosses when no one is there to get to the ball.

I know he has many assists but that credit goes to RVP, if it was any other striker Theo would not have as many as assist he has now. RVP is a smart player and some of his goals have come out of no where.

Walcott has to take the fear out of him and take a shot on target, he could be scoring every game if he just improved his technique.

"Sagna being injured is one of the reasons for Walcott's drop in form. When you have Sagna behind you & over-lapping that's a massive loss."

So true...

But that doesnt mean anything regarding his crosses, decisions, etc.

That's actually a frakking great point. Nevermind that Walcott has more defensive duties now that he does not have the braided wall behind him.

But his finishing has been meh lately.

Needs a proper RB behind him to re-find good form

In a way yes, Sagna did not need that much help and Walcott did what he wanted he knew Sagna was there to help him.

Now Walcott has to do more defending and when he attacks he has no confidence and keeps making mistakes. I think all he has to do is make better decisions, and to beat the defender one on one.

He has to change up his play he has one move all the defenders know what he is going to do.

I can't see him fitting in better in any other top-level (English) team, so he should stay. If it's up to him. And I think it will be, I think Wenger is rather happy with him.

The RB point is logical. Since a lack of proper fullbacks affects the teams play as a whole it's no surprise that his form correlates with the defender right behind him. Still a great player and very young.

I don't think it is the lack of Sanga over lapping, but in a way the other way round.

Its more due to the fact that he has to defend more since there are no real RB's only makes shifts like Djourou.

thats true.. even wenger himself said that walcott has been playing new roll after sagna's injury. he is more of defensive winger now.

i dont think sagna's effect on theos game is big. yes he overlaps but how many times have u seen theo take advantage of a sagna overlap and cross the ball or dribble inside. and sagna or no sagna theo has responsibility to track back. theo should learn to play smarter, his skill level has improved, shooting is good, all he needs now is smarter play. he should be more courageous, there are a number of times this season ive seen him shy away from a 50/50.

Backtracking is a lot more important for him now that he doesn't have Sagna. I think you're underestimating Sagna's calming influence on him. The whole squad has had to adapt to the lack of fullbacks and it's obvious. No excuse for his poor form though but it does make some sense.

Walcott scored the winner against Benfica thanks to an overlapping one-two with Sagna

I do hope Walcott decides to extend his contract with us. Not because I feel we'd miss him, but because I feel he owes some loyalty after we showed a lot of faith in him.

Should he decide to move, I wouldn't mind letting him go. I'm one his biggest fans and defend him a lot, but I don't think he's so good a player that he's irreplaceable. However, if he does leave, I hope it won't be to another English club as he's the sort of player you can easily see biting us in the arse.

People need to distinguish bad form and being a bad player. Contrary to what seems to be the growing belief at the moment, Walcott isn't a bad player. He's merely going through a period of poor form, along with every other Arsenal attacker bar van Persie.

He's obviously not confident in front of goal at the moment, either. I see people call him a poor finisher but I think that's way off the mark. He just needs to find form and confidence.

Walcott is leaning towards extending his contract. He knows that he is going to play that central role for us. Im not big on nostelgic Why else would wenger give him the #14 shirt?

Theo has to do those fakes and feints to beat the defenders. He has pace and he will be able to pull it off very well. He does not need to practice tricks or skills etc.

Just get him to watch a couple of Figo videos and ask him to practice it in training.
