Not that it's solely a reflection on him but in less than the 18 months the £100m attacking midfield three of Bolasie, Sig and Walcott will all be in their 30's. They hopefully might still be doing the business but it's not great long term planning as they'll all be declining together so we'll be looking to phase them out at a similar time with very little resale value between them.
I used to think like that but I genuinely don't think anyone worries about the future anymore, it's all here and now.  The signing of Walcott makes our team stronger with immediate effect, who knows what might happen in 2/3 years, Sam won't be in charge I doubt and who knows if Walcott bangs in 20 goals the next 2 years we could be fishing from a different pound regarding players as will be in that champions league

Depressing when you realise Lukaku, Barkley, Stones and Deulofeu will all be about to enter their prime years as well.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Id honestly rather pay the few mil for deulofeu back than the 30 mil or whatever we'd pay on walcot. Walcott is known by the arsenal fans for being a shit crosser

In all honestly though only Delofeu would have stayed out of them three ...so it's kind of a mute point .

And Deulofeu is known by us as having poor decision making and lazy, hence the reason he's failed at Barca (twice), Seville and Everton, and yes, I am aware Barca are decent.

This argument that he's not good enough for Arsenal, and as we want to be where Arsenal are, therefore he can't be good enough for us is a little simplistic.

Different teams have different strengths and weaknesses depending on how they want to play and who is available to them. How many teams would have started Victor Moses in the last two years yet he has a Championship medal. Gordon Strachen's career was supposed to be over when he left Man United yet he won a Championship with Leeds.

We need pace and all the goal threat we can muster and Walcott is an obvious upgrade on what we have.
Something clever written by someone else.

Lookman has played 154 minutes for us in the league this season.

Vlasic has started 4 and came off the bench 4.

They're not going to suddenly get more game time with Walcott coming in and Bolasie coming back to fitness. That's why it's either or.
But if he is playing as we know he can it will hopefully give us the cushion to bring them on it’s all win

We've signed 1 player under allardyce. It seems like a quite imaginative signing too. Am I wrong?
Better than Koeman who bought captains from “the best teams” fair play sam

Little else?
2017/18 = 15 games 4 goals
2016/17 = 37 games 19 goals
2015/16 = 42 games 9 goals
2014/15 = 22 games 7 goals
2013/14 = 18 games 6 goals

Hes basically got a 1 in 3 record over that period, and you can see when he gets a run of games hes very productive. If he brings very little else, how would you quantify what Lennon, Miralles or any of our other wingers bring to the team? Granted he isnt Messi but to say he brings little else is harsh!

Fair enough and a point well made. I'll wait and see.

Hopefully we can look forward to more of this when he signs.

I wouldn't worry about his age, because isn't our average team age this season 25-26? We have a lot of youngsters in the squad.
