Walcott Hits Out At Witch Hunters

Walcott Hits Out At Witch Hunters

As with most of the media in England, rather than admit the glaringly obvious truth that England's world cup team gave some of the worst performances out all all the competing teams, they prefered to look for a scape goat, and found one in Theo Walcott.

Even though Young Theo didn't play a single minute in the tournament, it was easier for these horrible, lazy, so called journalists to blame Walcott for England's short comings rather than actually do some work and analyis where the three lions went wrong.

For the first time Walcott has spoken about his inclusion and the effect the negative press had on him.

'The upset caused to mum and dad has upset me, of course,' Walcott said.

'Because it's not my fault I got picked. Mum and Dad ignore it just like I do - most of the time. But sometimes it gets hard for them.

'I'm looking on it as an experience, and I'd rather have had it than not had it. I'd rather have been in Germany playing football than being on holiday.'

'It was a brilliant experience: being with all the world-class players and seeing their routines, going to the stadiums, just being at the big event. That gave me confidence and hopefully, for me, there are a lot more big events to come.

'I'm serious about my football and of course I wanted to play. But I didn't expect it at all.

'I'd watch games and want to be on the pitch, but I'm like that watching a game at home on telly.

However at only 17 years of age, he proved he's already more of a man than these worthless pieces of cr*p who write for the red tops.

'In Germany, okay, it didn't happen, you've just got to move on.'

this article is crap........no one is blaming walcott, they were blaming sven for picking a player who had absaloutley no premiership experience, ahead of bent and defoe, 2 players that knock in goals week in week out for their clubs. So the mascott is hurt cause mummy and daddy dont feel well, duddums.

If we're descending into petty insults, you comment is crap. You may have not blamed Walcott for Englands failings, I but I sure as hell have read many many artciles where Walott has been made a scapegoat, and have heard comment from Chav's, Spuds & Mancs saying the same things!!

Agree, Rocky7 - anyone who frequented the 606 forums after the WC squad was picked, and during the world cup, and after it (the point when the forums were descending into the abyss and farce), would have seen many a comment about 'walcoot' (spelling of some spud WUM, not mine) this and walcott that, being ****e, not good enough, what's he doing there, etc. - and as he's said, he didnt pick himself - SGE picked him, and then never used him, the whys and wherefores are neither here nor there now,but he was copping a lot of stick from opposing fans. »»Arsene Knows««

I was quite surprised he didn't get on the pitch at all, particularly against sweden when england had already qualified. He could have been quite useful (certainly moreso than lampard with all his wasted shots)

Young Theo still had a better World Cup than Gerrard and Lampard. SG and Fat F***** advertise a lot of products, so when they are shown up as the average shower they are, the corporately owned media will not say so. The thing is, when Theo gets back in the England side and plays a blinder, they'll hype him up unbearably.

I must have misread sffsd's comment. Did he really say that bent & defoe score goals week in & week out? I suppose I can give him bent as he was top the top english scorer last season but who can say whether he is just a one season wonder yet & his one england cap was a complete non starter. As for defoe, now here is a bloke that scored just 9 goals last season & cannot even get in a spuds team that dont score this season. Yeah right, scores week in & week out......dream on!!

Walcott will become the world's best. Idiot Sven should not have treated him like that. Even SA can afford a better coach than him
