VIDEO: Game of Walcott’s career
Since the days of Thierry Henry, hat-tricks at Arsenal have been a scarce treat, so it was delightful to see a much-maligned 21-year-old net an awesome threesome against a newly-promoted but definitely not feeble Blackpool side.
That show, bar his 2008 hat-trick for England in Croatia, was arguably the highlight of Theo’s career so far, and in a season where he is being called upon to step up to the plate, the former Southampton whiz-kid is doing his reputation no harm.
Enjoy his performance against the Tangerines again![youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2I2fKr938gQ&feature=digest]
Now to improve on his consistency.
