I’ve been giving some thought to how Wenger is devolping young starlet, Theo Walcott.

I would like to start by mentioning all the comparisons made between Walcott and the all time record goal scorer- Thierry Henry.

Everyone from Harry Redknapp to Wenger and even Walcott himself have said that their are huge similarities in their game, namely the incredible pace that they share. There are plenty of other comparisons to be made between them.

Both started out a wingers (albeit on opposite flanks), both are lethal infront of goal and both will be Arsenal legends for years to come.

Young Henry started life as a left winger, when he moved to Arsenal Wenger turned him into a striker, a lethal one at that! He has gone on to be the best striker and arguabley the best player in the world.

Wenger has said on several occasions that he is going to use Walcott in a ‘centeral role.’ This hasnt yet happened. Each time Walcott has come on/played he has been on the left. I dont think this is a conicidence. I think that Wenger is hoping that by playing Walcott down the left for this season then switching him to a striker he will devolp in a similar way to Henry.

I know that Wenger is using Walcott sparingly at the moment and that its frustrating but bear with it, Wenger is the best man to make Theo realise his potential and make him into a legend at Arsenal.

  • couldnt agree more. you cant jus put him on whenever you like you need to remember his age and also wenger pointed out the best of all points. “i have no doubts about his ability but you have to remember is he better than anyone that already starts”

  • come the end of the season he will be up front with Henry you watch and them two will make defences cry and have nightmares with their pace and finishing !

  • I never knew that he was a winger. I thought that he has always been a striker. But I think that you are right (Oh, the pain, lol), you HAVE got a new Henry in your ranks.

  • too true his second goal for england was freaky coz it was so henry it wasnt funny. just think how many years he will be at the top of his game destroying defences. hes still just 17. Wenger is a genius

  • There are a few arses twitching out there (if you’ll excuse the pun) and rightly so, surely England must have a good future with the likes of Rooney, Lennon and Walcott!!

  • my goldfish knows more about football than springy. Go to our website and see how many englihmen we got in our squad then eat your words c*o*c*k*face
