I’m going to need to ask for forgiveness of fans, but I’d like to see Theo in away games more often too.
I know he’s a headless chicken, i know he’s somewhat easy to defend against in a one on one but what he has is speed. Greasy, fast, unpredictable speed. It makes the opposition think.
The opposition have a corner? Stick theo in the centre circle. Draw their defenders back from our 6 yard area and there goes their attacking threat from the corner. We have a corner? Perhaps keep bellerin and walcott furthest back so as to resist a pacy counter attack (see Salah in our game at Anfield)
I think what I’m getting at is, having been at the game yesterday, we seemed so ordinary. There was nothing to suggest, we’re Arsenal and we’re a cut above the rest. It’s all dependent on small margins. Had Burnley gone a goal ahead, i think we’d have sulked to defeat. (Thats a big if, though)
