THeo Walcott has always been one of the fastest footballers on the planet and since he started to mature at Arsenal and add goals and better decision making to his pace and all round game, he has been a really important player for the Gunners.
And he has become one of the players that our opponents fear more than any others. So Arsenal’s Premier League and Champions League rivals will be wary that the England international has recovered from his cruciate ligament injury and is back in the Arsenal squad.
So there should be some real dismay at the news, reported by the Daily Star, that Theo has used his time on the sidelines to good effect and has built up his strength and that has led to him being even faster over the ground than he was before.
The 25-year old forward said, “”I’ve been clocked faster than I was before when I was fit. So yes, the answer is.
“It was difficult at the start, but I thought it was an opportunity to build on my strength.”
Hopefully we will get to see his new and improved pace in the Premier League clash at Swansea City this Sunday. But don’t blink, Gooners, because you might miss him.
