Walcott would probably be an instant starter for us

He would. No question.

But like @therealdunc has said, if we want to catch these top 6 teams we have to stop signing their cast offs.

We have to find our own way of doing things, and find an identity on how we buy, and develop players.

Right now it just seems all so arbitrary as to what we're doing.

It seems like it's the beginning of the end for us in the Premier league.

Walcott is crap

Once again we are signing a top 6 clubs reserve failures , we will never get close to them if we keep buying their ageing cast offs

No doubt he would command a big wage as well

Completely the wrong kind of signing

An expensive headless chicken who has 1 good game in 10

Not crap at all, and 28 is hardly aging. Would waltz straight into the starting 11 and be very effective

Need to stop thinking short term.

He's 28, probably got a good 4 years left in him. Why is that short term? We have long term options already with Lookman, Vlasic, etc.

Walcott is proven not good enough (for our apparent ambitions of top 4)
He's better than what we have so I've no issue with signing him but not for some "proven premium" when the reality is all he's proven is he's short of where we apparently want to be

Indeed, we should hire the bottom 10s failures instead.

I don't think that's what he was thinking as the alternative. lol

Walcott won't find the net on a regular basis

Didn't he get 19 last season?

Even half that and he'd easily be one of our top scorers

Walcott's issue is fitness, although I thought he'd been doing ok on that score of late...he simply wasn't getting picked. In general, I'd have Walcott ahead of any of our current wingers, he also is far more likely to get a goal himself than any of our current options. A trait we definitely miss.

I think his fitness issues are a bit of a myth... hes played on average 20+ games a season in an Arsenal team were he isnt first choice...

He might get a few more knocks than most but I wouldnt say hes injury prone.

My only concern would be his finishing but hes much better than anything we have already so all things considered Id be quite happy with that.
