He’s started this season better than any other, banging in six Premier League goals already. His wife Melanie just gave birth to a second child. And now he’s set a Guinness World Record.
Competing alongside team-mates Laurent Koscielny, Francis Coquelin and Nacho Monreal, it was Walcott who managed to control a ball dropped from a crane at a staggering height of 34 metres.
Walcott broke the previous record, which stood at 32 metres. To register a successful attempt the player had to […]
Arsene Wenger’s side had drawn each of their previous three matches, but were able to ensure they remain three points behind leaders Chelsea by taking the three points.
Alexis Sanchez continued his fine run of form by scoring twice in Arsenal’s hard-fought 3-1 over a resilient Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
With Premier League leaders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool all winning on Saturday the onus was on the Gunners to respond on home turf.
Arsene Wenger’s men did not have […]
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott says he was at fault for Juan Mata’s goal in the 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Saturday, but said the Gunners’ recovery showed they’re stronger than in previous seasons.
Walcott failed to close down Mata when he ran into the area unmarked to meet a pass in the 68th minute to give United a well-deserved lead with a left-footed finish.
But Arsenal, who haven’t won in the Premier League at Old Trafford since 2006, levelled through Olivier […]
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry reveals why Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott have been scoring so many goals
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has revealed why he believes Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott have found their goal scoring touch this season.
The Frenchman thinks that having Alexis Sanchez up front has helped the attacking midfielders to get forward more often, and concentrate on finding the back of the net instead of setting up their teammates.
‘He did it for Udinese also in Italy and does it ever so well,’ Henry said of Sanchez’s move up front at a Puma event in […]
In-form forward Theo Walcott admits “the whole team is flying at the moment” after Arsenal secured a seventh straight win with a thumping 6-0 victory over Ludogorets in the Champions League.
Walcott scored his eighth goal of the season but it was Mesut Ozil who stole the headlines against the Bulgarians with the first hat trick of his professional career. Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got the other goals.
“Obviously the goals are fantastic but we always say we want to keep […]
Arsene Wenger said he never contemplated selling Theo Walcott in the summer despite the England international playing a bit part at Arsenal last season.
The 27-year-old has been in scintillating form and is now one of the first names on Wenger’s team sheet, something that could earn him a rest for Wednesday’s Champions League visit of Ludogorets.
Asked about any interest in the player over the summer, Wenger said: “Look, I haven’t spoken to anybody because I was not ready to let […]
It would be fair to say Chris Sutton is not a fan of Arsenal forward Theo Walcott.
The former England, Blackburn and Chelsea striker was asked by the Daily Mail to analyse England’s attack following the Three Lions’ dismal 0-0 draw with Slovenia. He used it as an opportunity to tear the Gunner apart, in total identifying four things wrong with Walcott’s game.
He is not clever
He is not creative
He has no guile
His pass appreciation is desperately poor
‘People are saying he […]

A huge change in Theo Walcott’s attitude has brought about the return of his very best form, reports say.
The Arsenal forward had frustrated Arsene Wenger and fans alike for not living up to his promise for years and blowing very hot and cold throughout a season.
Walcott himself had grown exasperated at life at Arsenal and he blamed his French boss for the cycle he had become stuck in where he would return from injury, make a promising return, tail off, […]
Theo Walcott has said he is happy to play on the right wing after previously targeting a role as Arsenal’s main striker.
Walcott, 27, signed for Arsenal from Southampton in 2006 and has since scored 85 goals in 344 appearances for the club.
The England international said in 2011 that he had “done my trade out on the wing,” although he has since struggled to make the position his own.
Ahead of the 2016-17 season, Walcott, who penned a new four-year contract at […]
