Okay Arsenal fans, it may not be time to hit the big Pink Panic Button just yet, especially as the point the Gunners gained against Sunderland last night ensured that we will go straight into the Champions League group stage next season.
But this is not a good time for Arsenal to be hitting a slump. For one thing we have an FA cup final to win and if cannot score a goal there is a good chance that Aston Villa will be the club celebrating at the end of May. For another thing, a poor finish to this season could carry over to the next one. It will not necessarily happen but we would all much prefer not to risk it.
So in essence, we need Arsenal to snap out of our recent malaise and start scoring goals and winning games again and I think there is one easy way for the boss to make it happen. His name is Theo Walcott. Maybe Wenger has played it perfectly and has now got a player desperate to play, fit as a butcher´s dog and with a skill set that no team can really cope with.
His pace and the timing of his runs are a defender´s nightmare. Add to that a burning desire to prove himself and you have one very potent weapon. I think we may have become too predictable in the last month or so and it is high time the tactics got a tweak, a Theo Walcott shaped tweak. What do you think?
