Theo has been the lifeline of Arsenal this year. Teams have struggled to keep up with the pace of the youngster. Even with that, Arsenal are having a mixed run with some high profile wins and then lacklustre defeats against bottom of the table teams. I think this is going to badly hurt Arsenal's showing in the Premier League this year. I think at the end of the day, they are going to end in the fourth spot this year!! Cheers! Ram

I didn't know about this until I read your discussion. What a waste! I think Walcott has been performing quite well in this season, and he's always the main player now. I think Bendtner can't substitute Walcott's position.

i think he will be a great loss to arsenal. depsite his young age, he is really talented and has explosive pace and a difficult player to contain. wenger is expecting him to cement his first team place and now this has to happen. i think wenger would have to adjust his team selection now as his young side is built on exciting, fast free flowing attacking soccer.
