Theo Walcott, really are the media putting 2+2 together and getting 22, don't get me wrong he has pace and skill and scores goals but really were did this come from.

Agree2 Disagree2

surely we only want walcott instead of gylfi. i hope we end this madness with gylfi and go for a more creative (from open play ) att mid we have been linked with plenty of players baines rooney ramirez can play a dead ball as well as anyone. imo we need to look at plan b here cause gylfi's stats just don't warrant our pursuit any more, the likes of walcott in a world cup year makes sense to me like rooney he would have a point to prove and be trying to get a eng squad place all season but this link has wily agent written all over it.

Maybe we should switch to the likes of a Mahrez, Brahimi or Boudebouz we seemed to have looked at all these Algerians according to the press over the last year plus the other one Ghezzal add some more wing trickery 😉.

at this point i would agree we seem to be putting too much stock in gylfi's dead ball skills but we don't have a target man for him to aim at and we have dead ball players anyway. swans deserve 30-40mill for the player but this is ridiculous money for an average player. full brazilian internationals with genuine skill are available for this kind of money we are starting to look like a mule here stubbonly chasing a player cause it is dangling in front of us time to take the blinkers off.

Walcott has been screaming out to b played as a striker and he knows where the back of the net is only negative is that his injury record is poor.

16 Jul 2017 12:32:37
Walcott is a good player but how many games are we likely out of him in a season he so injury prone just watching skysports news know and they say we intrested in in Remy can't see it myself Remy has an even worse injury record than walcott.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think we need any of them duke..

16 Jul 2017 13:14:14
With u there ed but we do need another striker or we will be in same position as last year with jut sandro as r striker as I don't see Rooney as a viable option to play as a lone striker role.

{Ed025's Note - we will get another one in duke..

Think the stats comment on Gylfi and to label him as just a dead ball specialist is unfair. Stats I've seen show he has covered more ground than any other PL player - as well as right at top re assists, chances created etc.
Comments re Baines as well are less than accurate. When did he last score from a dead ball situation? Add that to the fact that our corners only just started to be decent towards end of season and I certainly think Gylfi is an improvement.

Walcott is a totally different player in that he will give us the pace we are lacking - though personally I would prefer Nathan Redmond.

Regards the cost it is what it is. Is Gylfi worth less than John Stones? Cos he was £50m 12 months ago - and fees have jumped again since then.

So for me get Gylfi, someone with pace and a CF to replace Lukaku and from an attacking perspective we are sorted - finally options available to RK.

Dave your right gylfi is a lot more than a set piece specialist if u put him in a better team with more quality players then those stats would get better as well because we would have a lot more threats like ronney, Sandro, klassens that's if we do get him as far as the fee goes know it seems like going rate for quality players these days.

17 Jul 2017 05:52:28
while your right his game would improve with better players it would not add aspects to his game that are not there it would be akin to thinking that jags could to be able to play in goal now we have pickford and that is just ridiculous. it cannot be ignored that any player would have slightly better stats with good players around him it is very naive to think it would make him a player he has never been.

17 Jul 2017 07:13:22
Floats - think you are taking that to a real extreme. His stats already show that you get energy, creativity and goals. The one thing he doesn't bring is blistering pace - which is the one thing I see is really lacking at the moment. Walcott has that - but then spends a month out - so if it's a choice, give me Gylfi any day.

And Nathan Redmond as well please.

while i'm not lookingh to argue you have your stats wrong you need to read them more carefully gylfi does a lot of good work in final third no one could argue with that he does not defend and from open play and chances created his stats are very poor for instance gana and kante were the best mids in prem last year and gylfi does not come in top ten in att mid players who create chances from open play regardless of how much ground he covered in the prem last year or how much energy he has a big price tag does not mean he will be better than any other season he has played in. i like him and wanted him til you realise this kind of money can buy better and their is better out there.
