Theo Walcott - Believe the hype.

#1
Juat watched him come on v Germany U21s and he ripped them apart. He is fantastically fast and you can see he is benefitting from training with Thierry Henry.

Guru, I watched the same match and he made a massive impact when he came on. Very Henry like in his play and the goals were very good. Anyone still going on about Rooney should remember that half of the Under 21 team are older than him.

Yeah he had a good game when he came on, though personally I'd still rather have Darren Bent. He's got a track record being the top scoring Englishman in the Premiership last season and he cost a sensible amount of money!!

Nice to see an English Arsenal player scoring for England,all be it u21's.If we qualify for Euro 2008 I expect Mclaren will have him in the senior squad and that he will play.

Gooner supporter I know,biased yes,Honest always.

Lets see how he gets on when he plays in the Premiership first he might do a Shaun Wright-Phillips... Look promising then flop when the time comes to stand up and be counted

It's honest, he looked great banging in stunning goals all over the place, comes to the big club and can't hack it, what's he scored 1 goal since he's been there and even that was in pre season!!

For 20 odd million you want better just look at Joe Cole him and Robben are the benchmark, as far as I'm concerned Jose should sell him on and recoupe a couple of million back for him.

I dont think SWP is a flop - he was a good player in an averadge side at Man City - came to Chelsea with big expectations but he has to take his game to a new level. Jose did it with Joe Cole, and he will do it with SWP. Credit to SWP for not sulking and jumping ship during the transfer window, but staying to improve his game and skill.

SWP hasn't had a fair crack at the whip, but it's his own fault for going to Chelsea in the first place. He should have seen it coming.

As for Walcott, his second goal last night reminded me very much of Henry when he first arrived at the club. The opposition never really saw what hit them then either.....

Theo does look good I saw him at Reading in an England B game and he was rapid!! I just hope he comes on and does manage to break into a team with Sir Henry and a very promising Van the man but that with that talent on the training pitch can only help.

Drain Sniffer I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one mate, Jose's brought on Joe Cole, personally I think he brought on Duff with his injury's and we could probably sit here listing many others. SWP has flopped how many appearences has he come on and failed to make an impact, lacked the final ball and gets sloppy trying to do too much with his passing. In short yes credit to him staying but personally I think he should go.

SWP was the Chelski addage, "We will buy him so no else can have him!" Regardless of the fact the move from City has made him a worse player.

Wedgy - I was at Reading and had the privelige also of seeing him against Mansfield in the CC Cup when he was at Southampton, and at Reading was in the position of seeing the lad play more times than Sven. We could have done with his pace last night.
