    Its literally so obvious its untrue. He will be a good player, but one of the world's best, can't see it.

    In answer to the question, it's too early to say really but he certainly has the potential.

    Have either of you actually seen him play? He's got so much more technical ability than Theo.

    .......but in response to the question : the only people he could be described as 'the next big thing' by is by those in britain. media.supporters.etc. for example i remember reading and hearing about how david bentley was to become the next beckham of the game- where is he now?.....lol.
    like with walcott,i personally do not think he will be too relevant or talked about abroad though. british media overhypes all english players, only to be disappointed time + time again when it comes to competition with other decent teams, like in the euros/ world cups.


    i just hope for his sake that he, as winger, will provide crosses better than walcott......which shouldn't be too hard - i could cross better than walcott.
    my neightbour's cat could cross better than walcott.
    .....emile heskey could cross better than walcott (ok,not so sure on this).


    however may this player with long double-barelled surname we discuss might be good for england's future.....you know, to help england to reach last 16, or quaterfinal, of euro/ world cup ;}

    Check out Theo's assist for RvP's second goal at the weekend if you think he's that bad. Theo's got a fair few problems but his crossing isn't that bad.

    AOC's not primarily a winger anyway btw.

    He is. Hasn't played a senior game at CM although he had a few youth team games there.

    I think the Theo Mk2 comments are aimed at this idea that there is a bloke who is 90% of the way to being a top drawer player - but seems to always stay there, and is persisted with, even though there are players who are already the finished article.

    I suspect you (gooners) don't want to have another English player like that - you want someone that actually becomes the big time.

    Its very hard to say. He has only played a handful of games at the highest level, and to be considered good-great one needs to perform consistently over a period of time.

    Bit of a difference between those 3 really, if he became like Bale that would be great. But if he became like Lennon...not so great.

    He has potential to be, not sure as to why he's being compared to Walcott when they're very different.

    In any case he has great awareness on the pitch for his age and seems to have a high football IQ unlike the likes of Walcott.
