At the beginning of the season, Gervinho was preferred to start all of our matches ahead of Theo Walcott, which at times yielded fruit.
But, as the season progressed, Gervinho started showing us how frustrating he is to watch and his inconsistency led to fans calling for him to be benched. However, Arsene Wenger still kept faith in the Ivory Coast international to the detriment of Walcott which didn’t go down well with those who believe in the England international’s ability.
Although transfer speculation and contract matters unsettled him a bit, Walcott always proved that he is an important asset to the club whenever he was called upon to verify himself which he has done in all the matches he has started, including yesterday afternoon’s magnificent performance against Spurs, bagging a goal and creating the equalizer.
There is no doubt in my mind that Walcott deserves a new improved contract. But if Wenger and the Arsenal board decide against handing he 23-year-old winger a new deal then it will undoubtedly be one of the worst decisions made by the club in recent memory.
