    Walcott... Thoughts?

    Im not so sure Kenny has been getting the best out of Young Andy Carroll though!

    Walcott is a weird one, I like him and when he is on his game he can be unplayable but that just happens to be less often then not these days. If Arsene cant get the best out of a young prospect then it shows a huge risk! I think if we can make the top 4 this year then Hazard is the main target we have to go for in the summer but he wont be interested in Europa league football. IF that is a target we fail to acheive then Walcott is probably worth a punt.

    • I agree on Carroll, and particularly because (Dave's not going to like this), there's not that much more as far as skills that he can develop. Using his body/height better, being more physical yes.. the rest, I'm sorry to say, and in viewing players all over Europe his size and age.. is missing.

      As for Theo, we're on the same page but I certainly think KK can get more from him than Arsene does mainly because of attitude, self belief, and again eluding to a more stable core in a spine of the team and our defense.

      I know you're a huge admirer of Hazard as am I, but unless A- we're in 4th spot, or perhaps finish 1 pt off, or B- have something in place with Cole, I just don't see it happening and he's becoming a bit cocky in each interview he gives, saying I will only go here or there and even insulting a club or two, mainly a jibe at the pretend big team in London. Again, just my opinion, and my serious obsession, but with a price tag being given (35M Euros) and likely no Europe next year, Cavani HAS to be our man.. He and Suarez would absolutely terrorize backlines like we thought Suarez/Torres would, and his arrival would actually help Carroll being 2 years older, assuming we don't sell AC to Nottingham Forest for 2.5M...

    • Scot Sinclair. Much more consistent and an all round player. Walcot is another Downing, will run up and down the wing putting hopeful crosses and shots in. Worth no more than 10mil.

      That's what I think.

      If Sinclair gets an England call up (I think he should) his price will rocket.

      • Agreed, very much. I am super impressed with him, even when he was in the Championship last year..

        This may be a bit of a stretch, but who knows in time, maybe not too far wide of the mark, but he reminds me of a similar skill set to that of Ashley Young...

        If there were to be another British buy (though I think enough is enough), he'd probably top the list for me, where I think we really missed the boat on Oxlade Chamberlain..
