I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Theo can remain healthy and take further steps in his development next season. We’ve made a huge investment in him. His time at Arsenal has been very much a stop/start adventure because of injuries. The child that arrived from Southampton in January 2006 still struggles at times – his crossing and his decision making are two areas where he has opportunities for improvement.

The encouraging part is that he’s still only 20. What’s happened to him happens to most young players. Finding form is one thing but maintaining it is another. Add all the hype of predicted greatness that he’s had to live up to and you have a fragile situation.

To think that Dirk Kuyt has been a more effective player than Theo bothers me.

Come on Theo, BIG UP!
