Arsene Wenger's Selection Headache

Arsene Wenger's Selection Headache

With the league season winding down and the FA Cup final on the horizon, Arsene Wenger's squad has looked tired and had a couple games where they've been firing blanks.  As a result, the Frenchman rotated his squad.  The rotation paid dividends with a 4-1 win. Two players that were rotated in for this one were English internationals Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott.  Walcott bagged himself a hat trick, while Wilshere scored what was later voted as the BBC goal …

Is it Time for Theo Walcott to Leave Arsenal?

Theo Walcott has disappeared this season and hasn't really featured since returning from injury.

Santi Claus - Cazorla at His Best Over Christmas Period?

The season began with a lot of uncertainty over game time for Santi Cazorla; the arrivals of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, along with attacking players like Walcott, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Ozil, Wilshere and World Cup star Joel Campbell giving good reason to believe that Cazorla's days on the team sheet may be numbered.

Theo Walcott: Will he walk back into Arsenal's first team?

On 4th January this year, Theo Walcott was carried from the pitch on a stretcher during the closing stages of Arsenal's FA Cup clash with Tottenham. As a reaction to the various objects being hurled at him from the Spurs section of the crowd, Walcott cheekily held up two fingers as a reminder of the score.
