If Henry were to rejoin Arsenal and play as a team member, in theory it would be epic.

But Arsenal did a good thing getting rid of him, although they did it relatively cheaply, he is getting old and had that groin injury that didn't seem to get any better. I think they should have held on to their money a bit better though, Eduardo doesn't seem too great yet.

Did Barca really need him? He's proving to be useful, especially with Eto'o's injury but what will happen when he's fully fit? I think the money may have been better spent, but Henry does fit into the Barcelona style of play well.

I think Theo Walcott has finally completely arrived.

Would be better if his technique improved. I've a feeling Arsenal will win the league tho'. While Liverpool will prob fail to live up to expectations, at least, if they continue the same way they're goin now.

in my opinion thats his strong point, he has a good technique what he lacks is reading of the game and he is as weak as a little girl.

I'd hesitate to say that he has completely arrived Adam. I think that after his shoulder surgery, he has started to be able to utilize his pace better, and recently he has overcome his confidence problem and has been more effective. It used to be that he'd just hide during the whole game like he felt that he didn't belong to be out there. Now however, he is calling for the ball and getting more involved, which has in turn seen an improvement on his visible technique, which is back to what it should be. Pace wise, he is getting faster, and he is only 18, so he is still bulking up and getting stronger. It's only a matter of time before he starts scoring. However, he is still sh*t tactically. His off the ball movement is poor, he doesn't have the best vision, and he is pathetic at springing an offsides trap. That will all improve over time though. In my opinion, he will certainly come good and has the ability to be as good if not better than Henry.

As for Eduardo, you have to remember that this guy is brand new in a new country with a new language and lifestyle. He needs some settling-in time. Also, he has only started three league games, so there isn't really enough to judge in my eyes. However, he has already bagged two CL goals, so he's certainly good enough.
God damn brewery!!!

I jumped the gun a bit saying he has completely arrived, since there are clearly still improvements to come, but what I'm trying to point out is that he is no longer anonymous on the pitch. He made the difference against Bolton by running at them. I can't think of a player who dribbles like him besides Henry. He is so much better than he was at this point last season. Walcott has always had the ability but now he's finally showing it more often than a glimpse here and there.

His technique when passing and shooting still leaves much to be desired. Dribbling is pretty good, tho' with speed and acceleration like his, his doesn't really need class dribbling technique.Still, If he utilizes his pace and acceleration properly, he could be as good as Giggs(prime) in dribbling.

Fabregas's second goal and Bendtner's goal was the stuff of fantasy. Absolutely amazing performance, I actually couldn't stop smiling when I was watching it.

I taped the game, and now I can't effing wait to watch!

Edit: Good god, what a performance!!! Even during the reign of the Invincibles, I can't recall a game like that. Walcott for the start at Anfield on Sunday? After this performance he's absolutely deserving.
