I have been more  impressed with Walcott than any other signing I can think of for years.

The quality just stands out a mile. He's got touch, intelligence and still got pace. He works hard and plays with real intensity.

You dont remain as an attacker for Arsenal for years without being a top, top player.

His signing and Coleman's comeback has given me hope when I had almost given up.

Agreed. I was hopeful we'd have signed him last summer when we were linked, and then people were down on the idea and I kind of wasn't bothered after all.

But he definitely is a cut above, probably our most important player after Pickford. He might become my favorite player since Pienaar.
ďThe best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Donít wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.Ē Barack Obama

A Lennon who can score. I've liked what I've seen of his so far. I know that we've all been able to watch him play for years, but it's different when they're in blue, same as when Barry signed.

He's so much better technically than i thought.  Looks  a bargain for what we paid as even when his pace does drop off he looks like he's got the intelligence and ability to play a Pienaar typw role.
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

Heís technically good but Arsenal fans wouldnít agree. It clearly massively helps playing in a team where across 90 minutes itís fairly rare to see a player thinking quick or playing a clever pass, rather that it being the minimum expectation for getting on the pitch.

Not sure if Iím phrasing that very well, but basically we should sign more players who have honed their trade at Arsenal.

It's his intelligence that impresses me, him Rooney and Sigurdsson are probably the most intelligent footballers in the team at the minute, their vision and movement is miles better than anyone else, cant wait for others to latch on to this
It's the roll I way

I put Klaassen into this category from what Iíve seen too. With better players like Walcott around him amen Rooney deeper I wonder if itís bring out more in him. I donít think thereís space for all 4 in the first team but a squad needs depth especially if Sam wants to be resting Rooney (and Sig) regularly like against Arsenal

I have not seen enough of Klassen to comment to be fair, so I will take your word my friend.

When you see Walcott running with the ball at pace you realise how slow most of our players are. He's also ahead with his intelligence on and off the ball too. Good buy all round. I'd like to see Tosun get some of his service because you'd think we still haven't signed a striker yet, such is his absence.

I think in this setup he's got a far better chance of success. You'd like to see him get a go alternating in the Davies role with the brains of Rooney behind him and the speed of Walcott and guile of Sig next to him. He'll also have a willing runner all day long in Niasse.

Clearly I'm basing that off more faith than evidence but I can't believe he was as bad as he first showed for us and even then admittedly he has shown glimpses of one touch class a few times.

looks like he actually gives a shit, but we can soon drill that out of him

doing well though and adding a lot to the team, and hopefully it continues after the World Cup selection is announced
