'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Walcott Loves Life At Arsenal

Arsenal's teenage sensation Theo Walcott says that he is learning fast at Arsenal and that moving to the club is the best decision he has ever made.

Playing minutes have been few and far between for Walcott untill recently. The England Under-21 star has grabbed his opprtunity with both hands and has impressed fans and manager alike.

Walcott, who could start today said: 'You always wonder when things happen so quickly how you will cope, but this year has been an incredible learning experience.

'To be able to work for a manager like Arsène Wenger is fantastic and to go into training every day with Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and the rest is a revelation.

'The World Cup is something I will look back on as amazing.

'I can understand why people were asking about my place in the squad, but all I say is that it was better for me to be there than to be on holiday.

'I watched David Beckham crossing a ball and saw how technically perfect he was. I learned about finishing from Michael Owen.

'Gary Neville and John Terry taught me how to lose defenders and I saw from Wayne Rooney how important it was just to be in love with the game - you can't buy that experience.

'Every time I've gone into a new situation I've been nervous but as soon as I've found my feet I think I've done well.

'I've spoken to Steve McClaren and he's told me to spend a bit more time with the U21s, get more experience with Arsenal and see how my game develops.

'For me, that's the important thing. To keep learning, to work hard and try to become a better player every time I train or set on the pitch.'

Going to be? The lad is already a smashing player, he is going to be a great player. If he keeps his head down and works he WILL be considered an all time great!

i think his potential is huge, which is why wenger plays him, its like Cesc too, both players have played from an early age, wenger always said, if they are good enough, they should play.
