Theo or Alex- Who do YOU think Deserves to Start against Stoke

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has had a flying start to the new campaign, scoring 2 goals in 3 appearances, and making some fine performances. Theo Walcott has seemed to fade off during games and while he has possession of the ball, he seems predictable and uninterested. So which young English International deserves to get the nod against Stoke? Leave a comment below.

    • 4 how many years should they give a chance.he dose not have football sense,poor finishing,poor crosses,poor ball control and very very poor final ball passes.they should pls allow AOC play.

  1. No exaggerating,walcot isn’t worthy of been called a professional footballer,let alone play for a big club like arsenal.I think he should venture into athletics and do sprinting full time.Dennis.

  2. Bring Walcott on in the 2nd half as a replacement. His pace, against tired legs, will cause the defence fits. Starting a game after playing so poorly in previous games only reinforces to him that he doesnt have to do what the coaches want because they will never reprimand him by letting another forward start in his place. |He has become “entitled” to pay because his ego and his agent tells him so and the team that are whispering in his ear to come and play for them next season… It is a tragedy what he is becoming. He should be an elite player but seldom performs like one….

    OX should start the next few games in a row as a reward for his efforts and as a slap in the face to Theo. Problem is, Theo may be so far gone about where he thinks he will play next season that he is beyond the ability of Arsenal mgmt to control now….

    Sad situation for such a gifted player…

  4. Like one of my friend said…experience and confidence start from somewhere.Let Alex The Ox start in first half,this guy is very talented,he has good across andhe can score only nt that good in the defence line.
    . Wenger should tell him where he remain and he should tesy his ability but i knw My alex will surely prove himself to be the man we need.

  5. I think AOC should b giving d chance to play against any up coming team. Becos walloct is out of form n as it is now we need points n not encouragement. Up gunners

  6. Walcote should start because he will be helping our right back now that jekinson is injured. Alex is good no doubt but he doesn’t help at the back which for now may not be good for our team.

  7. Alex has more experience than walcott…so Alex should start.
    Walcott is a very dangerous substitute and in case he starts, he should be substituted at the beginning of second half….nothing personal…we all love Arsenal

  8. Some excellent points made by RealityBytes and TJ since Walcott seems to be a better impact player than AOC and but is more tuned to helping out defensively. The other factors in Wenger’s decision will be;

    1)The likelihood of Stoke Rugby club breaking Walcott into two or more pieces and is AOC a better bet to survive their caveman physical attacks?
    2) Can our midfield dominate and our back 4 out-jump their taller attacking players in the air? If we have trouble with their set pieces, we need a strong defensive player who will come back and help the fullbacks (Walcott?).
    3) How will Stoke play…park the bus football, hoof and run or try to actually attack? If its park the bus then AOC is the man, if its counter-attacking, then Walcott can help pin them back and if its attacking football, then AOC is our best bet since Walcott and Arshavin don’t do much to help but AOC can hurt them on the counter-attack.

    AW doesn’t want AOC injured or burnt by his experiences so he’ll be cautious about using him whereas with Walcott, he has the experience needed to handle Stoke.
