I see no other Gunner has responded, so I will.
Do not consider Walcott to be an answer to your problems down the right. He is not a natural winger.
In my mind, he should played down the middle in front of RVP in a 4-4-1-1 formation. That's where he would kill teams.
He's had enough time on the wing to prove that he shouldn't be there, but his £95k p/w wage demand may be too rich for our board on present form.
Couple questions John.
95K a week is steep, so if Arsenal don't give it to him do you think anyone would. I have no idea what he's on now, but think the lad is still only 22 or 23, so would have thought his next contract would not be near that considering he's shown talent but not consistency.
Second, if he is worth 95K a week and other managers are willing to pay him that much, what does that say about Arsenal if they are not willing to compete on the same terms? I know your lot published record profits today, but does mean anything if its not at some point invested on the actual pitch?
