WOW talk about impact
great crossfield ball from leighton baines and its 10 to england brill first touch sloted past keeper no danger
took ball in own half showed clean pair of heels to 2 german defenders onleft wing cut in to 18yd box, sloted passed goalkeeper into righthand side of goal looked very much like he has been learning for henry.
so now what were some folk saying about arsenal and england ???
BTW hoyte was playing and played very well in his correct position he also looks good for the future
Looks like the main England side could do with Theo now. Oh, how the press who derided him in the summer must feel stupid now.
The England side is completely stale, and it will be until someone has a proper shake-up of the side. Fair enough, McClaren made the easy decision of dropping Beckham (who pretty much dropped himself), but why is Lampard playing - he's not had a good game since the middle of last season for club or country. Rooney and Crouch can't play well together. Rooney can't buy a goal at the moment; pair Crouch with someone else. The guy is paid loads of make decisions, now is the time for Theo :)
And before all the fans of lesser teams give the obvious "He doesn't even get a gamne for Arsenal"....
Arsenal can win without him at the moment.

thats right damian... wenger is careful with his youngsters, and he wont risk walcott at 17 just to please some fans who want to see the next big thing. its not worth him playing now and picking up an injury that wrecks his career.
but i dont think arsene would mind him playing for england, cos it gives the lad experience, confidence and ambiion. he should be in the squad cos he can scare any team of any quality with his pace. plus he's also drastically improved technically and theres more end product ie goals.
England are so bad, and lampard looks so lethargic in the middle of the field, what a Crap game
Pleased you also took time to praise Hoyte's performance at right back after all the stick he has had on this board. He will also be a future full international perhaps when Neville retires in the next couple of years.
Typical :) i have just posted something very similar!!!
Anyways,i agree with everything you guys have said.For me i thought the first goal was slightly better because he needed to take the ball in his stride(this required a good first touch) and shoot past the keeper who the goal really small.He also had time to think about his shot(this is not always the best for a forward bearing down on goal)....The second goal was all about pure searing pace.Well done Theo.
and his second goal was even better. The boy has explosive pace and both finishes were top drawer.
No doubt AW will still keep him out of the team for a while longer. Maybe see him start in the two bob cup against WBA.
McClaren had better wake up - Theo is miles better than Defoe and Bent.

And me, was just about to make the exact same post. He looked sheer class out there. As he said in his interview, he's only 17, the other players are all 20-21. His second goal was pure Henry, he is seriously quick!
