Like Gibbs or OX, he should not be so greedy and should move on with a better coach or a team that play long balls for him to chase.

Short-passing and possession are not his best attributes with his poor first touch and lack of dribbling skills.
Why he was never a successful CF is that he is too lightweight and can't hold the ball with his back to goal. Simply no upper body strengthen, easily bowled over.

Not forgetting he chickened out in 50:50 ball situation in the box.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why Arsene Wenger is still intending to negotiation a contract extension with his greedy git of a poodlebrain.

Apart from tripping over a couple of times I cant remember what else he did all night.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

He's not been that bad for us. Never really used to his strengths, on and off injured, not quite good enough to start so a lot of sub appearances. Been a good squad player for many years.

He definitely doesn't fit into this new formation, so Wenger has no idea what to do with him (not that he knew previously either mind).



Albert Einstein once said: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

He fits in easily. Right forward. We have Welbeck and Alexis doing a similar thing on the opposite side. Theo just isn't good enough to make much of an impact these days.

He is better when he stays of wide and then makes diagonal runs as a surprise. Because of the formation he is starting a little narrower and his close control means he gets robbed most of the time

Not looking good for him at the minute, but it is a long old season.

Probably score against Doncaster if he can actually manage to stay onside.
