In your opinion in terms of versatitlity and the type of play Walcott is suited to, would you refer to him as a limited player?

This is not saying how good he is or isnt at what he does, just asking whether you would consider him limited?

Would you also consider him consistent in terms of regular or consistent good performances?

i thought walcott was a pace merchant only
in the last 18 months i have seen an improvement
he makes much more inteligent runs and his finishing has improved more than just on instinct
it would seem that if he is not scoring or assisting that he is a bit of a luxury but i think he brings pace into the team that is sometimes missing. he did rather well at that scoring and assisting thing last season and being as how that wins you games then i believe he has something to offer the squad.
there is also that fantastic record of nearly 4 goals per game when he podolski and giroud have been on the pitch together
surely an asset that is worth involvement at the club?

I dont disagree with anything you said, people interpret limited to mean bad or useless, thats not the case it just means limited.

Flamini is somewhat limited but is an absolute gem to have in the side for what he does provide.

Good post starman.

People still judge Walcott based on what he was when he started his Arsenal carrier. His link-up play, movement, finishing and final ball has come a long way and not to forget his blistering pace. In my opinion his game may have been one dimensional when he started his Arsenal carrier but now his game is much more than knocking the ball behind the defender and running past him.

not having theo and poldi available is just starting to hurt us
tonight really showed up our lack of depth with people that can score goals, we cant rely on ramsey and giroud all the time
but we knew that anyway

We have decent depth in some areas and a serious lack of depth in others - hopefully January can address that a little but I wouldn't set your hopes too high.
