Walcott ready for tense Arsenal finish

Theo Walcott has been far from his best in an Arsenal shirt recently and has come on for a lot of criticism from the fans and the media, but he was much better today. He took his goal well and was lively and dangerous all through the game. Many felt that he was not a big game player but he proved them wrong today.

It’s a real shame that his goal was not enough to get the three points that would have kept Arsenal’s top four chances in their own hands, but we are now hoping for a slip from Tottenham or Chelsea. They do play each other, but if Spurs win all their games, including the one at Stamford Bridge, they will finish above us. If Chelsea win all their games except the one against Spurs, they will also finish above us.

Walcott is aware of the pressure, though, and knows that none of the remaining fixtures for any of the teams is a foregone conclusion. The most important thing for the Gunners is to keep focused and win our own matches, which we should do if we play like we did against the champions today. Apart from giving away a dumb penalty, obviously.

“It’s great for you guys,” said Walcott to the Sky cameras. “Not so great for us.

“We just have to concentrate on ourselves. We cannot keep relying on other teams.

“As long as we get the three points and do not drop any points, that is all we can do.

“Hopefully, come the end of the season, we have kept that undefeated run of games. We need to make sure we are definitely there.

“I think both teams did not want to lose the game. In previous weeks we might have gambled a bit more than we normally do.

“But overall, come the end of the season, I think it will be a good point.”

Chelsea beat Swansea today, but they still have to play United next weekend, as well as Tottenham, Aston Villa and Everton. Spurs were lucky to get a point against Wigan yesterday and are not playing well. They have choked before and will probably do it again, so if Arsenal can win the last three games, I am convinced that we will finish in the top four. Don’t panic Gooners.

    Remember Chelski have Manure ,Everton and Spurs and the Europa League games so it is unlikely they will get the 9 points from 12 they need.

    Spurs aren’t the greatest of teams and I am certain they won’t be beating Chelski at the bridge so they won’t be getting the 12/12 points they need.

    Note our goal difference is significantly superior to Spurs so if they draw Chelski(my prediction) and win the other games they will finish on 72 points(our maximum possible which we will likely reach) so we will finish 4th on GD.

    Provided we win our relatively easy upcoming games Top 4 is ours

    arsenal will be in top 4 only if we win the next three games. we are missing goalscorers.
    wilshere, ramsey and rosicky doesnt score goals.
    gervinho, ox and podolski also dont score enough.
    we are relying too heavily on cazorla and walcott.
    wenger please sign a striker and a goal scoring midfield

    Quite disappointed with the fact that Arsenal wasn’t able to beat Manu today.
    Although, I do hope that after this game, people will stop talking about how Podolski is way better than Giroud as a CF etc… I think Podolski is a great player, but he is far better as a left attacking winger. Girouds presence was missed in the attacking front today.
    This should show all that Wenger actually does know what he is doing with the players he has got!

    I know some people will hate this, but today my hatred for Robin van Persie was lessened. Some gooners were taunting him really bad, his every touch was getting booed. If I were him I would be very frustrated. But the way he kept his nerve and didnt celebrate was really classy. I think we should just forget about him.

When ever he is on the pitch is just hard to get the goals. Whilshere needs a lot to learn good play on the ball but no perfect connection with the goal. please cazola or rosicky then deep midfield should be arteta ramsey or whilshere

    Just thought about this Fabregas thing. If sources are to be believed then we get 50% of his re-sale. This means that if we were to spend 30 mill on him then we;d have 30 mil less for other players but we’d have Fab. If someone else buys him for say 40 mill and we go out and get a 40 mill player with the 20 from Barca and 20 of our own, then we’d only be 20 mill down with a 40 mill player. I can’t see it happening with our board now I think about it.

    i was given thumbs down by many people when i said wilshere should play as deep midfilder. wilshere doesnt score enough goals from cam role. he must play in deeper role and we should sign a defensive midfilder too.
    arteta and wilshere cant play together. rosicky should also be replaced with a quality one. we are too inbalanced.

    Are you for real?

    Rosicky, Frimpong and Vermalean?

    I dont know where to start, if you watched the game today you may have noticed Rosicky running riot in that game causing Man Utd all kinds of problems, he’s a class player!

    Frimpong like you said ‘has potential’ and loves Arsenal and will give his all and will be a brilliant CDM

    Vermalean is a World Class CB, he would get into most teams, its no fluke that teams like Barcelona want Vermalean, yes he is having an off season but until this season he was our most reliable CB and the best CB, every player has a rough patch, you’ll complain when players don’t show loyalty to the Club why don’t return the favor and be loyal!

    We need a clinical, skilful and agile ST – Jovetic/Villa would fit the bill here

    We need a world-class CDM, to give room for Wilshere to attack while giving cover to the defense – Fellaini/Gonalons/Song

    A good CB to provide cover for Mert/Kos/Verm

    An experienced GK to fill in while Shez developes and to mentor him

    A world-class winger wouldn’t go amiss, as Poldi and Wally are too inconsistent and we need Cazorla at CAM.

    For those of u who say Podolski is not good for CF role f**k u,u dont judge a player at one trial.Giroud has played 40games as a CF and Podolski i think just four so u see the difference? Giroud has had a fair opportunity upfront to improve while Podolski has not apart from today.And for those of u who said Rosicky and Vermaelen should be sold u too belong to the same category,Vermaelen has been for couple games but he is still a world class player(WCP) thumps down if u think otherwise.Rosicky is the only creative CAM we have now with huge experience,u can see that any time he gets substituted it becomes very hard to score that is because he is the only one who knows how to create chances,give through passes and has good vision u can’t say the same for Wilshere in this CAM role.Sagna was poor today but that doesn’t mean he is not a good player,believe it or not he is among the 5best RBs in EPL.For now Koscienly is our best defender,Cazorla and Arteta have been poor lately and good work for improving Ramsey Wenger woun’t let Cardiff take u back we have to reap the fruit of our hard labour.Thanks to you all for reading my contribution,bye for now.

    If JW10 had been healthy he might have made it into the PFA team. Cazorla should’ve made it on!
    There shouldn’t be a Giroud vs Podolski argument! Both need to be playing up front with Lukas dropping in behind Giroud. The two of them will form a rather deadly partnership. They need to be played together constantly and develop a chemistry.

    Giroud is not the problem as a striker its the final ball, RVP has missed more sitters than Giroud this season, yes he has finished more, but in Giroud’s defense the crossing has been dog seaman, Gibbs and Podolski are the only two players on the wing that can cross the ball which both of them are on the left so there is no variety, Sagna and Walcott’s crossing is poor, I honestly believe if we can sign a good crosser of the ball Giroud can be a 20+ goalscorer, he’s got 17 this season, most of them haven’t been scored from a header which is worrying considering he is one of the best headers of the ball!

    Falcao
    Fabregas
    Diame
    And don’t tell me we don’t have the money cos we do. And there are a host of players we can sell to fund both the transfer fee n wages.
    Also we need some big n physical players. Against united u could really tell the difference. They have many tall players plus the whole team is physical n aggressive, even those who r not big, like Rafael. Skill alone will not win u matches. I don’t know if anyone realizes it, but this is the reason why giroud starts every game: because of his height and aerial ability-defensively he helps us so much; its only a shame he is not as clinical n skillful as we all hoped.
    Falcoa n Diame are both tall, strong, technical and have decent speed for their respective positions.
    Fabregas is not tall but he is a genius n he has an eye for goals as well. If he leaves barca I am sure he would love to come to arsenal especially if we buy some world class players for him to play with.
    I for one will appreciate it if the fans who go to the games put some pressure on the board n the coach.

Maybe he is overrated but the guy has been absolutely fantastic besides those dives, I would have him at Arsenal in a heartbeat, no questions about it.

    Bale has been successful because Spuds team has been build around him by AVB. We don’t have that kind of player, I think Wenger has tried to build it around Giroud, but besides those layoffs he offers little outside the box. Wenger has always been good in building team around a player but except Santi he has not got any player whom he can build the team around.We need to get someone special whom he can build the team around, Jovetic would be perfect.

    Deficit 1- lack of a known winner who drives the team (JW10 notyet)– a Viera, a Thierry Henry etc ( What Yaya is to Man shity)
    Deficit 2- lack of a 30 goals a year striker
    Deficit 3- lack of a big assertive CAM or skillful, Rosicky and injury prone Diaby will not cut it
    Deficit 4- lack of a Serious DM to alleviate our suffering.. to replace the gap that Viera left and Song nearly breached before he threw himself into the Barca bench to rot ( damn he had become real good for us)
    Deficit 5- Good tall CD, RB, LBs and a goal who will finally stop people from scoring easily- this will free players to go and attack and then come and defend as a unit the Frank Ribbery, Rooney and Arjen Robben way- something Our Carzola, our Rosicky rarely does.. R

    Failing to beat Man Utd really makes Arsenal now at par with Tottenham and Everton. No team in premier league look at Arsenal as a real rival.

    At one time, we were the best team in EPL and even Red Nose throw/kick a boot at David Beckham because they lost to us. Red Nose sell Beckham to Real Madrid not long after that. That shows how bad they want to win.

    Nowadays we are a team that cant defend properly and a self destruct team. May one day we can be the greatest team in Europe again.

    Meanwhile for the remaining fixture that we may win, I will just smile knowing we are just another mediocre team in EPL that is so crazy for top 4 money. The team are now fighting for money not for transfers but for the owner and board. I will not be surprise at all if only 1 player added to the remaining team.

    Im not a conspiracy theorist but there is something fishing with this Arsenal team. Something is not right regarding this team direction and ambition.

    arsenal football club is run by people who only care about
    money. kronke and wenger will never invest heavily on transfer. They only care about saving money from sale of best players, ucl money, epl money and sponsorship money.
    they will never spend 30-40 million on world class players.
    cheap bargain buys below 15 million is the policy of the club after selling few key players to make transfer budget.
    if u are not gonna spend big then atleast sign right players. u can get better players in bargain price like
    benteke, michu, etc. we have a policy of only buying overrated french players.

    Every team in the world is spending big on world class players and is winning trophies.
    man utd, man city and chelsea are the top 3 epl teams.
    spuds are also signing quality players. when will arsenal
    spend and win trophy?

    well in that @moneytalk I am deeply sorry..xD
    next time dont put the word deadwood and a class player in one comment or else angry fans like me while gone confuse..but still splashing money is not an arsenal way although i agree that we should spend SOME in a Reasonable position ON the RIGHT player or else we are producing deadwood as much as we producing Up and Coming star..

    I’m 100% agree on tactical changes for one reaoson..
    Here it is..
    Everyone saw last night game and saw who was our striker rught??..yes it is what some of our fellow gooners crying for Lucas Podolski..did he do better than Giroud??…the answer is NO!!..before u hit the thumbs down i think u shold know this..
    1. Giroud and Podolski is a Striker and a good one..
    2. at the moment Giroud is the best choice but no way we can pick him since the red card..why??..cuz he can set up player, better one touch play and reliable in producing an assist and always drag defender away which opening other player to score for example carzola..
    The problem is not our striker the problem is delivery from wing play..we were terrible we cant cross properly..set piece is a joke especially Sagna..why everytime he got the most chance do deliver a cross??..i dont understand that either…well i would love to see fellow gooners to suggest who will be our winger choice..or who should we buy..??

    The board @ arsenal should be ashamed. A club like arsenal should be in competition for both BPL/UCL every year, not top four.

    RAMSEY 44 GAMES 1 GOAL 2 ASSISTS
    WISHERE 30 GAMES 2 GOALS 4 ASSISTS
    Even though not fully fit after continuous injuries still much better option. WILSHERE is world class, just needs to play deeper (CM) for couple of years just like Fabregas did until he matured into a offensive AM

    Arteta, Wilshere, Rosicky for the midfield.

    RVP should at the least do us a favor by beating Chelsea. His final gift to Arsenal. Chelsea and Spuds should lose at least 1 game and for us not to drop any points. CL spot is ours.

    With this kinda stingy and greedy Board I doubt if any world class Coach can manage the club at this stage if Wenger leaves..so it’s best we sign 4 ‘above average’ players e.g Julio Cesar, Jovetic ,Isco and M’Villa we will get some silverware next season to motivate us ‘the fans’ there after we can only hope the board changes its philosophy, new coach comes in with a new ambition..

    The Board and Wenger have put Arsenal in the situation they are now. I doubt if Arsenal will finish 4th.
