It is undoubtedly very hard to write in glowing terms of anyone in a red and white shirt but if you’re looking for a dangerman then one needs to be identified. Plus, it would seem that the official Arsenal website says nice things about Gareth Bale, so someone needs to redress the balance.
As has been said in the past, sometimes the most dangerous players are the most erratic – completely anonymous for long periods of time then bursting into life for a ratio of around one game in ten.
Step forward Theo Walcott. If you force yourself to watch any Arsenal games then it’s easy at times to forget that he’s even present. Then all of a sudden, he’s capable of turning games and as his England hat-trick suggests, there is potential there.
We must hope that this is an off-night for Walcott, but if it’s his turn to shine, then Spurs will need to be wary.
