Walcott: FA Cup win could open floodgates for Arsenal

Theo Walcott believes that if Arsenal can win the FA Cup, it will be the prelude to a prolonged and trophy-laded period of success for the club, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

The Gunners meet Hull City in the Wembley showpiece on May 17 and it is nearly a decade since Arsene Wenger’s side last lifted a trophy. Arsenal beat Manchester United in a penalty shootout to win the FA Cup in 2005 but haven’t added to their haul since.


Walcott, currently recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, has said however that the future could see a great deal of success if this season can end on a positive note. “I think next season will be a massive one for myself and the team,” the England international added.


“If we win the FA Cup, which we have a great chance to do with the way we are playing, the players are going to want more trophies,” Walcott continued. “I think the first one is so important - once you win that, you'll win more and more. I'm pretty sure of that.


“It would be great for the boss to win a trophy again, too. He's shown so much belief in us throughout the years. If we don't play well, he always reflects it back on him, even though it's our job to go out there each week and try to perform.


“That just shows how much faith he has in us all and it's really important to him. The years just before I arrived here were unbelievable and he wants that again.”


Arsenal have won the league title 13 times, although not once since 2004, and the FA Cup on 10 occasions. The Londoners also have two League Cups to their name, 12 Charity/Community Shields and the European Cup Winners’ Cup of 1994.
