Okay so we play on Saturday against Burnley…but you already knew that. Alexis scored on Saturday…but you already knew that. Alexis is hardworking and a great asset for us….BUT YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT!
So i guess i just have to say there really isn’t much going on in the world of Arsenal today. Arsene should have a press conference today and we’ll get more news and so on. I guess what i look forward to most is the possibility of Walcott playing. I’ve always been a fan of the guy…honest! Even when he was frustrating and consistent “In patches” so having him become such an important part of the team is heartwarming for me.
Walcott has the ability of really adding something to our attack. I’m not saying he’s our saviour, but he could very well have a say as to how our season goes.
I understand that when a player is out for so long two things happen: (1) There’s this inflated expectation that comes from not seeing the player play for so long so we usually expect them to set the world on fire on their return and score a bazillion goals and dribble the entire pitch while doing a hand stand and (2) They’re never really quite that good. This is usually because they are just coming back and need to get a feel of things again.
I assume the same thing will happen with Walcott, but i am still mightily excited as to what he could do for us. Walcott is a big game player. The biggest criticism of Olivier Giroud is his inability to show up against the biggest teams. Walcott has no such problem, he scores against the big teams regularly and he’s dependable on that front. You remember the goal against Barcelona a couple of seasons ago, the third goal against Chelsea in that 5-3 win, the goal against United in the draw in RVP’s first season there, the couple against Man City last season.
Anyway you get my point. Walcott will be massive to have when we face these teams and i think we have United in a couple of weeks. It’ll be interesting to see how Walcott works with Sanchez, i know i can’t wait to see it, i just hope it isn’t underwhelming. Some of these relationships just don’t work out much as we root for them to. The Santi-Ozil relationship is just beginning to take shape and the Ramsey-Wilshere relationship hasn’t really kicked off, so i can understand doubts on the potential Walcott-Sanchez one. But i would love to see it.
Another thing this weekend that i’ll be looking out for would be if Arsene once more chucks Wilshere and Ramsey and force the team into a 4-1-4-1. I hope to God he doesn’t, but we’ll see.
Beyond that i don’t think there’s much else going on. Have a good one and see you later
