Theo Walcott, Arsenal’s unsung hero of 2012-13: Gunnerstown Blog


He can be infuriating at times but the pros far outweigh the cons. It’s one of our areas of support that drives me nuts, we slag off the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie for leaving, yet when players commit their future to our club we never really give them any praise for doing so, we elect to ram their salary down their throat if EVERY ball isn’t inch perfect. Since when did football work like that? The notion that Theo wasn’t trying because he now had his new salary was just flat out ridiculous.

Very well said.

I am amazed at how little appreciation Theo gets from our fans. There are other players who have been painted with the ‘inconsistent’ brush who get a lot more love from fans.
