Arsenal’s Theo Walcott gives central role a new twist in win over Chelsea

Striker makes more compelling case than team-mate Olivier Giroud or Chelsea’s Loïc Rémy and Radamel Falcao as a starting Premier League centre-forwardAppropriately enough on an afternoon when Wembley simmered in slightly sickly August heat, there was plenty for both managers to stew on after Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat of Chelsea in the Community Shield. In a way this was a tale of two centre-forwards, or rather a tale of two matching centre-forward-shaped holes. For Arsenal the issue of who should start at the point of the attack was answered in part by Theo Walcott’s lively display in the...

Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla sign new contracts

The England man's latest contract saga is over, as he signs a new 4-year deal. He's joined by Santi Cazorla. Arsenal have announced that Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have signed contract extensions at the club. Both players had contracts expiring at the end of this season (though Cazorla had an option for a one-year extension), and Walcott's contract talks had turned into a bit of a saga, with the club and the player looking like they would be unable to reach an agreement. Walcott, though, started the last two games of the season, and this seemed to convince him. Walcott's contract is...

Theo Walcott gets in on Jeff-a-mania

HERE IS TODAY'S JEFF CONTENT As we transition from a blog about Arsenal to a blog about Jeff Reine-Adelaide, it appears the club itself is doing the same. "Jeff" is the word on everyone's lips, and today we hear more about him from Theo Walcott. Turns out Theo also thinks Jeff is good! For 17 he’s confident on the ball and he wants to express himself as well, which is important. It’s always nice to see a young player not be shy on the ball. Even if he makes a mistake he wants it again, which is a good sign. Getting that assist at the weekend just shows he’s got that touch in the...

Wenger: Walcott contract could be finalized "very soon"

Let's get it done, eh? The Mirror reported yesterday that Theo Walcott had agreed to a new contract with Arsenal, which would be Good News if official. It is, of course, not official yet – the report says to expect that in the next two weeks – which means we get cryptic messages from the team and everyone around it until all the t's are crossed and i's are dotted, or they aren't. Walcott himself was asked about it after the game, and said basically nothing. Arsène Wenger was as well, and he said a little more – that it was getting "closer," and while it's not done yet, "hopefully we...

Theo Walcott and Arsenal agree on a new contract

The Arsenal forward is set to become one of the club's highest-paid players After a fairly long spring and summer of mild contract unrest, Theo Walcott has apparently laid to rest any possibility of a departure away from Arsenal, as he and the club have agreed to terms on a new contract that will see him at the Emirates until 2019. Arsenal are expected to announce the agreement before the start of the new Premier League season in 14 days. Notorious for not releasing contract details and transfer fees, Arsenal aren't expected to reveal, exactly, Walcott's new wage, but it's widely-rumored...
