Fella on TEF who is normally spot on reckons Walcott will sign and make his debut agaisnt West Brom on Sat.

I hope so, although I still get the feeling he'll end up at Southampton?

I'd be more inclined to believe that had he not been in the arsenal squad yesterday

We will eventually pay for all of this short-term bullshit. Worse than we are already.

And yes, I'm aware that I'm a miserable cunt.

Hope he joins Southampton.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Because you could find a negative in absolutely anything. Proper glass half empty

Why would he join Southampton over us?

Left them at 15 and might feel he owes them?

I'm not too concerned with short terminism  because our problem is now not the future. If don't sort the now out future is even less certain. Hopefully the younger quality players we have will be the future.. live in the now because yesterday has gone and can't be changed and tomorrow hasn't arrived.

Its not glass half empty but there are other things to consider, its been stated everywhere else, his wife lives close to there and works near there I think, hes from the area and its his first club?
He doesnt strike me as the type that would need the money so its probably more of a lifestyle choice for him and there are bigger factors for him to consider. Lets be honest when it comes to the choice of the 2 clubs the only real difference is who he thinks will finish higher in the league as the reality is neither will win anything in his career, so you tell me, what is the big draw, with the exception of financial elements we've done nothing for over 20 years so is 'our history' a bigger pull than his personal circumstance?

I think a head down pace merchant with his best days behind him are exactly what we need to fix our broken midfield






In all honesty though, just see it a straight swap for Lennon with more productivity. Probably less defencive nous tbh and much less personality. But he has the ability to produce.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

No issue with short term but they aren't even great players. Just decent 1s. Would it be that hard to find a comparable player to Walcott with potential

Yes if there's potential then there's a massive premium on that

If we’re going for potential then I think what people mean is Lukaku when he first joined / signed potential rather than Lookman / Vlasic potential.

If they do mean the former then, as you say, you’re looking at £35-40m in today’s prices.

Then there’s the fight on for them if a CL team also has an interest.

If it’s the latter, who are cheaper and easier to sign, we already have those types here.

It’s a pain of a drive to Southampton from London by the way, I wouldn’t like the commute
