Theo’s emission from the U21’s means he will be named in the seniors

In Arsenal FC on February 23, 2010 by Highbury N5 Editor

Its really quiet at the moment, eerily quiet, at this time of the season you are expecting hype, hype and more hype. UEFA’s plan to play the last 16 round of the Champions League looks a failure, especially as the plan was to give each game more exposure. Fail, Platini.

The only real thing to talk about is…. *flicks through Newsnow quickly*… is the emission of Theo Walcott from the England under 21’s squad. You would think that now he is back fit again he would either be in the proper England squad or the Under 21’s – and as they play on the same night I reckon it means hes gonna be playing against Egypt at Wembley in a few weeks.

Right now I would prefer it if he was just left alone to focus on Arsenal and staying fit, if he doesn’t get injured again he will probably go to South Africa – rightly or wrongly. He needs to start showing some form now he has a couple of games under his belt and from what I have heard, there was improvement against Sunderland so lets hope he continues this against Stoke on Saturday evening.

There is some kind of jinx with England and Theo, he seems to get injured nine times out of ten, and in the one out of ten, scores a hat-trick and gets hyped up beyond all recognition.

Theres an interview with Jens Lehmann in the Mail, what a fantastic keeper he was, he was a class above Manuel Almunia. Rising to the big occasion and almost single handedly won us the FA Cup in 2005. I’m sure any autobiography of his would be a hilarious read, he was often criticised for being eccentric and OTT but he was a right laugh, the type of personality that made the League the best in the world at the time.

Right, thats about it for today, nothing else to say really. Till tomorrow.
