Walcott's return boosts Arsenal's title bid

By 1970's Gooner

Theo showed us all last week what this Arsenal team have been missing.

The first is lightning fast running behind the opponents defence. This forces the full back marking Theo to drop back thus forcing the rest of the defenders to follow in tandem. It therefore opens the space allowable for the Arsenal midfielders and forward players to move further up the field and push on from there.

The second is that his positioning widens the pitch stretching the opponent's midfielders and defenders thus creating even more space for Arsenal's creative players to take over.

Thirdly it allows Wenger to select the right players to play in their natural positions. Squares will fit into squares and not into round holes as has been happening so far. Typical examples are Wilshere and Ramsey who were being asked to play out wide. This didn't show up as a major weakness until we came up against the bigger teams.

And lastly Theo scores goals. He was our top scorer last season! And he showed that quality last week with his two very well taken goals. Theo has got everything.

He has pace, crosses intelligently, defends well and scores the goals.

Expect another sparkling performance against Chelsea.
