Theo Walcott says that he’s happy with the goal he scored, and that the team got three points for the first time at home this season, but also that he’s disappointed he didn’t get more.
The England international missed at least three gilt-edged chances in the game, and should have been more clinical in front of goal. However, it was his excellent touch and finish that put the Gunners ahead on the half hour mark, so it was a bitter-sweet day for the forward.
“I was pleased with that goal. I was disappointed because I should have got many, many more, but I’m in the chances so I’m happy with that.
“I’ve said to the manager that I’d like to play up front. I can play in any of those three positions up front, so it’s a good option for the manager to have.
“In the end we had a clean sheet and that’s always the most important goal. We know we’re going to score goals and we know we’re going to create chances as well.
“We create chances so we just have to put them away. We’re starting to get back to the old Arsenal. We’re very pleased after this game.”
“It’s nice to see Olivier among the goals as well, which shows it’s great competition that we have for places here. Everyone is staying fit as well which is important. We want everyone to stay fit with this important Premier League run.”
So, he should be happy with the goals, and we suppose reasonably pleased he was in good positions, but if he doesn’t spend the week learning how to hit a cow’s arse with a banjo, he won’t be doing his job properly.
