Juventus want Walcott from Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has stated many times his intentions to get Theo Walcott to sign a new Arsenal contract, but has also said that there is a time limit on the negotiations, and that time limit is almost upon us. Walcott has proved to the Gunners that he can do a job for the team down the middle as well as down the right flank, and Stevie Wonder could see that he is one of the most effective players in the team.

If Arsenal fail to agree terms with the 23-year old, then it will be because the Arsenal board, or whoever is in charge of contracts, has refused to offer the England international enough money. Either that or Walcott has made up his mind to move on. It is believed that he actually wants to stay at the Emirates so I assume it is money holding up the deal, no surprise there Arsenal.

In less than three weeks, Walcott will be free to talk to other teams about making a free transfer in the summer. Arsenal must decide whether they want to keep him until then, or try to cash in while he is still worth something to the club. The Italian champions are ready to make an offer in January, according to Talksport. They are ready to offet Theo £90,000 per week, while Arsenal could get around £8 million.

Juventus is a better proposition for the club because he will not be going to a Premier league rival. Arsenal fans are sick of seeing our former players coming back to haunt us, so if we cannot keep Walcott, I think we should try to ensure that he moves abroad. I still hope to hear that he will sign a new deal, but my optimism is wearing thin. What do you think, Gooners?

    Play 442, and play Walcott with Giroud as striker. Also, rotate the striker position with Podolski, and not Gervinho… If what Walcott is saying is the truth, then he will be able to compromise after that.

    WHAT DO YOU LOT NOT UNDERSTAND????

    EVEN IF WE BUY WORLD CLASS IN JANUARY, WENGER IS NOT FIT FOR THE JOB ANYMORE!!!

    HE WILL STILL PLAY THE LIKES OF RAMSAY AND GERVINHO. HE WILL STILL PLAY PLAYERS OUT OF POSITION. HE WILL STILL ONLY HAVE PLAN A AND NOT A PLAN B WHEN TEAMS READ HOW TO PLAY AGAINST US (WHICH PRETTY MUCH EVERY TEAM HAS DONE THIS YEAR)

    WENGER OUT

    Give Walcott a chance at CF for the rest of the season. If he fails to deliver, sell him. If he succeeds, sack Wenger for playing him out of position for so long.

    This is just so annoying because sincerely speaking we need Walcott and I for one is so tied of having our players leave. Wenger is just so arrogantly stubborn and besides Walcott deserves the 90 thousand a week.

    Come January when Theo is long gone Wenger will come out to say…”We’ve got lots of players who can pretty well play in his roles Alex Oxlade, Arshavin, Ramsey and not to mention the players we have on loan coming back like Ryo. In addition we’ve got to respect our policy of giving chance to young talents.”

    If no signing in January arsenal is automatically wont qualify for CL and will not attract quality players to sign and economically will go down. This is because they want to keep AW who use the philosophy of trial and era to sell quality players and not replacing players of similar quality

    Wenger should be investigated for match fixing because all those matches are winnable. Wenger just decides to play players off their natural positions and always stick to players that destroys Arsenal.

    Wenger doesn’t believe SAGNA or WALCOTT deserve a pay rise!
    He thinks they should sign a contract with the same wages they are already on and as for SAGNA he only wants to offer him 12 month extentions! For a players who has played every game every season with 100% comitment apart from when he broke his fiblua at spurs! And wenger repays him with THAT!
    This is why we loose are best players, bcoz wenger treats them in the wrong way then man utd n mancity come alone and treat them with respect and pay them what there worth!!

    You see, Arsenal and Wenger is like a marriage…
    When everything works well and smooth you don’t have clue about the other problems…

    Now that all is chaotic at Arsenal, we have a better view of what is going…
    The fans are always the ones in the dark.

    IT HAS BEEN REVEALED THAT WENGER WAS UNAVAILABLE TO TRAIN THE TEAM FOR THE SWANSEA GAME AND STEVE BOLD WAS NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE CHARGE BECAUSE WENGER WANTS TO BE IN CHARGE OF ALL.

    SO THE TEAM WENT AS IS TO THE GAME…!!! DISGRACE !!

    THE DEFENSIVE TRAINING HAVE BEEN STOPPED ( BOLD WAS IN CHARGE ORIGINALLY ) AND WENGER JUST TALK TO THE DEFENCE BEFORE GAMES…!!! RIDICULOUS !!

    I CAN SEE WALCOTT RUNNING DOWN HIS CONTRACT IN ORDER TO SEE IF ANOTHER MANAGER APPOINTMENT WILL BE MADE… SAME FOR SAGNA.

    WHATEVER THE SIZE OF THE MONEY POT, WENGER DOES NOT HAVE THE QUALITIES TO DIRECT THE TEAM ANYMORE.

    HE DOES NOT GIVE INFORMATIONS TO THE PLAYERS DURING THE GAME, BUT HAS BECOME A SPECIALIST IN ARGUING WITH THE FOURTH REFEREE.

    HE HAS NO CLUE ABOUT WHAT IT TAKES NOW TO WIN OR GUIDE HIS TEAM.

    AS I SAID BEFORE, HE HAS BEEN STUCK IN THE EARLY YEARS OF 2000. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT WE HAD WORLD CLASS PLAYERS CAPABLE OF GETTING OUT OF ANY SITUATIONS, AND BASICALLY COACHING THEMSELVES.

    HE SHOULD LEAVE BY THE FRONT DOOR BEFORE IT GETS WORSE.

    I CAN SEE MOYES ( STILL HAVE TO RENEW HIS CONTRACT ) OR GUARDIOLA ( HE IS INTERESTED, REALLY INTERESTED ) COMING TO THE CLUB… AND THEY ARE REAL COACH, NOT MANAGER AS THEY ONLY CAR ABOUT THE TEAM AND ONLY THE TEAM ( THEY DON’T SET WAGES OR CONTRACTS TALKS ).

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    Sorry for the capital letters, but I got carry away…

    Peace

    Wenger is at total failure, i bet some managers will archive more with than present, with our current squad.. Why must wenger play ramshit & shitvinho? Why did he keep playing some players out of their respective favourite positions? E.g arteta-poldi-theo. Why is he using the same formation which dosnt suit us, why not to try something different for at least 1 or 2games? Am pretty sure some managers will fix all that within 3games, “life is dynamic same as football but wenger is not (very stubborn) I will not be shocked if I heard wenger is sacked so soon what a disgrace? “We need our arsenal back GUNNERS4LIFE

    When you think about it, the amount if lies us fans have had to deal with is attrocious and heart breaking. I remember a few years back when Wenger was talking about his youth development program/policy. He went on to say that he was nurturing these youngsters to become great footballers and in turn dominate Europe for Arsenal. His intention, or at least we all hoped, was to train them up AND KEEP THEM. Well call me a fool because how many of those youngsters still remain with us? Fabregas, Song, RvP, Cole etc etc have all been sold. That makes me wonder how tight Wenger really is with the board. Wenger takes all the heat for them and also surely if Wenger wasn’t allocated sufficient funds to do his job properly ie buying certain players in the transfer market he had scouted, he would have stood up and said something by now?. Yet, he remains silent and continues to be a yes man for them. This is why I do not trust him anymore, simply because him, Gazidis, PHW are all part of one long snake. They are all making a fortune whilst continuing to exploit and lie to us. Walcott will most likely be sold. We heard the same sh*t about how they were doing their best to keep Fabregas, Nasri and RvP.

    Don’t know about the rest of the fans, but I’m tired of being taken for a mug by all these rats running our club. Paying champagne prices for lemonade football on top of that is just adding insult to injury.

    WENGER, GAZIDIS, KROENKE OUT!!!

    Wallcot is going this January whether you like it or not. It was a calculated move even before the rumors started sprouting.
    If you don’t get the trick, Fergie is about to retire and leave a legacy behind while Arsen aka the professor is eying the top job. That’s why he is transferring his best men early enough. Watch the trend Jack wilshere is next, I hope that he takes Gervinho and Ramsey too.

    @tyno What a sh*t mentality to have. RvP was completely 100% right in what he did. Who wants to be part of a sh*t football club going nowhere with no ambition when you have 3-4 years max left in your career? He was with Arsenal for 8 years in the time which he won 1 F.A Cup. How f*cking sad for a player of his calibre. He would of been an absolute idiot to stay with Arsenal. It’s not like he just one day thought, ah f*ck Arsenal, gave us the middle finger and went on his way. No. He had a meeting with Wenger and Gazidis to discuss the future of the club. I believe even the year before when Nasri and Fab left, he thought well let me give my club some time – perhaps things will turn around. He saw doom then already and waited around another year hoping the policy would change. Then when we had signed Podolski and Cazorla, apparently he was going to stay and Wenger said to him he isn’t part of the plan anymore. So in actual fact, Robin had every right to leave. Even when we played them earlier this season he shook each and everyone of our players hands and didnt celebrate when he scored. Wenger and the board should be ashamed they let such an amazing player go.

    Disagree Walcott hasn’t proved that he can play CF the majority of his goals come from him cutting in from the wing,thats the best place for him.
    However Walcott would never go abroad he’s not good enough technically,its pretty obvious he’s been waiting for united.

    Also a couple of months ago it wasn’t about money it was about his position,this sounded like a smokescreen to me so that the fans wouldn’t boo him.And thats what its proved to be,because none of the teams chasing him would play him upfront except liverpool.

    Remember Bob Marley’s song? Exodus Movement of JAH people? for Arsenal fc it is EXODUS! MOVEMENT OF GOOD PLAYERS. Walcot can leave because the environment and Wenger highly encourages it even if it is for £4m they cant resist the lure of peanuts £m besides he is bound to be sold cheap there is no trophy backing hi CV. Another thing is that it will be difficult for him to command shirt in Juve not forgeting his injury records every season.
