Arsenal have at last (nearly) made a small leap from the Wenger Trophy to third spot in the Premier League, or maybe even second if Southampton do the business this weekend. But Theo Walcott now believes it is time for the Gunners to aim for that top spot at long last.
“Third place is a step forward from where we finished last year. But we need to be pushing on now and trying to challenge for the title,” Walcott said.
“There was an opportunity in the season when we were getting close to Chelsea and people were talking about us competing but I sensed throughout the dressing room that we were never quite up there with Chelsea.
“But looking at the squad, the manager has an absolute headache to try and pick his best team and we want that going into next season.
“We are looking very strong and you never know, he might add a few extra players but we need to be pushing for the Premier League now. There is no excuse.”
That is definitely what Arsenal fans want to hear right now Theo. And I might add that it is also good that you intend to stay and be part of that title-winning squad next season. It would certainly be a good thing if Wenger adds a few more quality players to give him bigger headaches and I’m sure he would love to have more headaches like that!
Onwards and Upwards!
