As most Gooners sit in the depths of despair similar to those experienced when Dave Seman got lobbed from 50 yards, Ryan Giggs took on the entire Arsenal team for a last minute heart breaker or when Wayne Bridge snuck in with minutes remaining, there remains one solitary ray of happiness, and he goes by the name of Theo Walcott.
The 19 year old front man has had is reputation as a top flight player questioned recently, some maintaining that he is not progressing as quickly as we thought he would, but over the course of the season, the little man has come of age.
Despite only appearing mostly as a substitute, Walcott has impressed, and continues to impress the more games he plays.
I'm not usually one for player bashing, but Walcott has produced more from a handful of appearance since the turn of the year than Eboue has given for the whole season.
The Englishman, labelled as a waste of money by many rival fans, has enhanced his reputation greatly with a string of exciting displays and has had Gooners on the edge of their seats with his speed and willingness to attack defenders.
I honestly can't think of another Arsenal player more deserving of a starting spot in the team this weekend, and if Eboue is picked ahead of him once again, who could question Theo for being mightily pissed off?
Tonight is one of the lowest points of my Arsenal supporting life, but Young Theo has lifted my spirits, and I pray he can do it again at the weekend.
