Arsenal MUST NOT sell Walcott to Man United

If Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board learnt anything at all from last night’s humiliating exit from the Capital One cup at the hands of Bradford City, I hope it is the fact that we need to keep hold of Theo Walcott. Even more important is that we do not sell him to Manchester United, as a report in the Mail today suggests might happen. If we do, we might as well change our name to Manchester United B.

Now, I enjoy watching Gervinho run around as much as anyone. He is the best in the world at getting himself into promising positions before turning back into trouble and losing the ball. He has also perfected the pass that splits, not the defence, but the attack, it is great entertainment. I would suggest, however, that occassionally we could do with winning a game of football and someone who is a bit better at both ends of a cross would come in handy.

I understand the Arsenal fans who say that Walcott is also frustrating and has not fulfilled his potential yet, but for the last three seasons he has been a lot better. He has chipped in with plenty of goals and assists despite being played on the wing. He also dragged Arsenal back into the Capital One cup at Reading, scoring our first goal before half time to give us hope, and the equaliser that took it into extra time. It could have been much different last night if Theo was available.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are all keen on the 23-year old flyer, but United are believed to be favourites. Ferguson is looking to replace Nani, and Walcott fits the bill. If Arsenal sell Walcott and get Nani, we will have traded in a nice new car for a broken down Jalopy and will prove, once and for all, that we have no ambition and have turned into a feeder club.

    we have made city, and united stronger…they pick and take our best players when they feel like it.
    and the board dont really mind.

    we have fallen of being a top club, no team is scared of us no more. 8 years won nothing and getting worse and worse…..i feel like a liverpool supporter all we can say he what we done and what wenger done 9-10 years ago…or how well and beautiful football we used to play years ago.

    I’m gonna post some damning facts now which we should really be worried:

    We have scored exactly 3 goals from open play in the last 6 games.

    3. That’s 3 goals from open play in fully 570 minutes of playing time.

    Of the 26 goals we have scored in the EPL, 2 are penalties, 2 are own goals, and 1 was an offside goal. Of the remaining 21 goals, 11 were scored in just 2 games (Totts, Soton).

    So if you take away the penalties, 2 own goals, 1 offside goal and the 2 games in which we thrashed Soton and Totts, you are left with 10 goals… in 14 games.

    Is it fair to take away the Soton and Totts games? Yes. Yes it is.

    Because it’s no use thrashing two teams if you subsequently fail to score in multiple games. That does us no good. It’s much better to score 2 goals a game consistently than it is to score 5 and then go on a dry streak.

    So yes- this statistic matters.

    Finally, we have scored 1 goal or less in 12 EPL and UCL matches. Manchester United has scored 1 goal or less in just 6 EPL and UCL matches and 2 of those were garbage games vs Cluj and Gala after they qualified from their group, so really only 4 games scoring 1 goal or less.

    We suck in attack. Not even the most optimistic fan can spin it differently.

    Please somebody stop our greedy board and Wenger to sell Walcott and to Man U. I can not take this.
    Time for Wenger to go. Sac him and take a new manager. 6 months he can work with the team and can identify key players
    In summer, new required players can be bought and fringe can be signed. But new manager needs time.
    Try Pep Gradiola, It will be a lottery for us, but there is no harm to try.

    Seeing yeterday’s performance, it can be easily said that wilshere is most overrated player in PL( maybe because he is young English player). Arsene insistance on giving more chances to wilshere and Ramsey is dragging the club down.

    Why Arsene don’t try Eisenfld, who was considered better than Goetz at Borussia Dortmund.

    Must not, but probably will, and I wouldn’t blame Theo one bit. I doubt he’d want to go to Man U since he wants to be a striker and they have more than enough there but he is clearly being unappreciated by the club and has every right to ply his trade where he will be appreciated. I mean, he gets signed as a striker, but plays as a winger, yet a sack of sh*t like Gervinho gets signed as a winger and gets played up front every game Giroud doesn’t.

    walcott wants to play as a striker. thats even more difficult for him at utd…. they have rvp rooney welbeck hernandez…. if hes going to utd then it means he will get more money there and hes going for money…. walcott himself said that he isnt asking for a pay rise but for a striker’s spot…. how will he justify his move to utd now? money or striker’s role?

    no wonder why our best players are leaving the club.
    hope that theo will not be given to manu. they are already strong. give them gervinho, ramsey and chamakh to mention few.

    Sell out best to direct rivals and buy a) youth (to groom and eventually sell off for profit) or b) sloppy seconds at a discount rate (no disrespect to arteta or pod) everyone has to be a fkn bargain or out of favor with a struggling club. We neeeeed ONE world class striker for gods sake, a solid DM, another LB and we’re done! Honestly could off load chamakh 6m santos 4m and spend 20-30 on a striker, 15m for a DM and 15m on a LB. 40-50m and we are done! And that’s having absolute quality though out the starting 11 and strong bench, keeper to striker a fkn force!

    My co-arsenal fans when last did we watch arsenal start wit 4-4-2 formation or change d formation to 4-4-2 formation dat will suit podoski,giroud,walcot and chamak well.To me wenger is killing arsenal players nt developin them.how can u sign an attacker and play d attacker on d wing where doesnt suit d player.We keep on sayin arsenal should sell chamak,arshavin,park,bendtner for wat.To me wenger killed dis players performance on d pitch.lets say fergie signed dis players,he will play them in there position where they played in there former club bt wenger will buy u and play u out of position expectin u to give ur best.dat is wat is affectin podoski,giroud,arteta,cazorla,ramsey,gervinho,walcot.how can a good coach for godsake play gervinho in central forward position,to score big problem 4 him.podoski is finding life difficult on d wings becos he is nt a winger and he prefers d central attacker role along wit another attacker bt wenger plays him on d wings or alone upfront in d central forward position.To me walcot is our best finisher at dis moment,it will be stupid and crazy if wenger and d board allow walcot to leave d club.why cant wenger play giroud and walcot upfront,play them together the way rooney and van persie are been played.I will love to see wenger 4 once change formation(4-4-2,4-4-1-1,4-1-3-2) atleast two strikers played upfront.

    The last part is rubbish about theo being a new car an Nani a jalopy,Nani and WAlcott are much of a muchness,both as inconsistent as each other,except Nani is better technically an Theo scores more.What we need to do is keep theo,and then strengthen the squad with a striker,dm,and 2 new defenders,then move out all the dead weight.

    I just hope we can win our games b4 january,becos i’ve got a bad feeling things could get worse,need to strengthen the squad so we can move Wenger out at the end of season,he’s run out of ideas and can’t take us any further.Hes been left behind.

    We the fans don’t know what the hell goes on in the board meetings and the b@stards want to make sure that we will never know, hence there is no seat on the board for Usmanov.

    The whole club has become a dark secretive organization. There are daily speculative stories coming out re Walcott that we don’t know who to believe who not to. We don’t who has the final say on players contract or who is answerable to who at the club. We don’t even know what the f@ck Gazidik does at the club???

    We were kept in dark re Fabregas,RVP,Song transfers and now Walcott.

    But than again, we the loyal fans don’t matter to this rich arrogant businessmen…all that matter to them is making money!
