Theo Walcott hat-trick : Your thoughts


It is the Monday morning after our 6-0 thumping of Blackpool on Saturday, now it is time to get over the euphoria that came with our great win an look back at what took place. 6-0 is a great score no matter who the opposition is. I have heard many Manure and Chelski fans say that it was against Blackpool so it does not count. Well… all I had to say to them was that Blackpool put 4 against Wigan so they are no pushovers. But with that said, as much as I hate Chelski, they are playing some Playstation football right now but they will not score six goals in every game.

With that said, mention has to go to Theo Walcott for his first ever hat-trick for Arsenal on Saturday. Coming into the season, many had written Walcott off after he was dropped from the England World Cup team. I had thought that this would effect him as his moral would be low but he seems to have picked himself up well and delivered a great performance on Saturday. But let us not get carried away, he is still not a world class player in my opinion but he has the potential. Before his hat-trick I heard many Arsenal fans say that Walcott just has lots of pace and at time does not know what to do with the pace. He will beat a player but then put in a poor cross or woeful finish.

So my question to you fellow Gooners today, what do you think of Walcott as a player? Does his hat-trick on Saturday make him world class? Do you believe he has what it takes to be out key man this season?
