    That's why I started my point by saying Jenkinsons a better player.


    The loyalty on top of that makes it a no brainer.

    Nobody has done themselves justice in an England shirt tonight, but Walcott certainly did himself no favours in his bid for a new Arsenal contract/new suitor.

    Have you seen him play this season? One of the most consistent RBs in the PL.


    Pretty sure ozil is the only footballer you rate...

    finding it harder and harder to have faith in walcott.. always stuck by him thinking with more games he would find his goal scoring form again.. but he really just hasnt

    I still think when he moves to another team, he will start scoring again - but just seems like he is finished for arsenal now.

    Chuck him in the deal for sterling and get a bit off the price

    Why sterling? we have the ox and i know he gets injured but then we have wellington silva, campbell and gnabry. If Walcott does leave we won't replace him.

    I would really like a clinical player so if we got rid of campbell, podolski and walcott we could get Reus and when reus gets injured ox can step in.

    Guys coming back from a brutal injury. Give him time. If he's injury free from now till next season then I guarantee he'll score 15 goals next season.


    ACL is one of the hardest injuries to come back from...I did mine about a month after theo and I did intensive physio for 6months (obvs not as much as theo) and I'm only just now starting to feel confident and strong on it again...give the lad time.

    I am a huge fan of the ox, and really think he has a place in our future.. but at 21, he is a year older then stirlign, and has delivered no where near as much over the past 2 seasons.

    Most of this is probably due to injuries, but well.. we can only judge on what we have seen.

    The others, gnarby + silva are not ready for the first team yet, and campbell clearly is not wanted by wenger..

    So for that position we are left with 1 injury prone player who has not yet fulfilled his potential, 2 kids and 1 player wenger will never play.

    Its hardly enough for a title challenging team.

    - Stirlign is of first team quality and would fill that position (and many more given his flexibility) for years to come. If he did keep up his current form, let alone keep improving, his price would look like nothing after 4-5 seasons.. either because he would have been brought out by one of the huge clubs for stupid money, or becuase we would have got many many years of good service.

    Reus worrys me due to his injury record, but he would also excite me so much as a signing. I would probably take stirling for anywhere up to 10m more then reus though

    Gibbs should of scored, but he was more creative than our whole midfield until Barkley came on. However I get so annoyed when he cuts inside and passes backwards and sides, he really needs to play the ball down the line and work the wing to get the crosses through.

    This game England were missing a lot of players, getting a draw was good we should of pinched a victory, we lack players who can hold the ball in the midfield and slow down and dictate the play, because we either pass between defenders/goalkeeper or drive at pace hoping not to loose possession.

    We can't keep doing that, we can't say things like "we have the ox and i know he gets injured but then we have wellington silva, campbell and gnabry" because silva has no experience in the PL and is 22 already, I really don't see him or Campbell with a future at the Emirates. Gnabry is a future prospect because he's no where near an Arsenal winger at the moment, he's good but he's not quite there. Sterling and Theo are ahead of all three. Ox is the exception but he's so injury prone.

    You're right about the clinical player, that's who we need. If selling Theo means we get Reus then that's progression, and exactly what we need tbh.

    Been thinking this for a while, but Reus would be the correct replacement for Theo. Not quite sure about Sterling to Arsenal. Liverpool will charge us a lot more and they have a bitter taste because of the Suarez bid so they'll be a ***** about the whole thing. Wouldn't pay a huge price for Sterling, we can get something similar for cheaper.

    Give the guy a break he's been back for what 2 months after a year out injured.

    Like come on get real, do you honestly expect him to come back and be scoring every game.

    Ffs it was only 3 months ago that people were spunking over walcott saying how much we've missed him

    Yeah, it doesn't make sense when our depth is spoken about as an excuse not to buy a player.

    In the summer, Wenger maintained that we don't need to buy a striker because we have many players that can play there - i.e, Giroud, Theo, Podolski, Campbell, Sanogo.

    All of these haven't shown that they're clinical enough (other than Giroud recently) and it's the same with the RW position. Our only real threat on the right comes from the Ox and he's injured. Campbell, Silva (who isn't even proven here and is 22) and Theo wouldn't get in to a title challenging team with the form they're showing. I like Gnabry a lot, but he's non existent at the moment and we can't clinch on to hopes for his development.

    Yeah I think Theo should have at least till the end of the season. I don't get why he was dropped to be honest, didn't he get three goals in his first three games when he came back? He needs sharpness but that'll come with time, he's got technique and is more clinical than Welbs

    I have been very patient with him for the 3 months he has been back, but well, it has been 3 months now, and he does not look that close to his old self. Not like he has been rushed into the team either, but a gradual set of games and minutes spread out over 3 months.

    I dont think his record is to poor, 3 goals in 13 apps.. but his performances so far, have just been really disapointing all round, not just that he is missing chances he used to put away, but his general all round game just seems lacking badly.
