Celebrating nine years at Arsenal, forward Theo Walcott believes the Gunners’ current strike force is stronger than the existing “invincibles” when he first joined in 2006, reports BBC
Theo Walcott signed from Southampton back in 2006, and played with the likes of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robin Van Persie, Jose Antonio Reyes, Freddie Ljungberg and Robert Pires – the majority of whom were in the “invincibles” squad for their title-winning 2003/04 season. But he feels Arsenal have a much stronger attack now nine years on from his arrival.
“When I came, it was Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg, Bergkamp, Thierry and Jose Antonio Reyes – that’s some attacking force. I think this squad probably does beat it, but we need to prove it. When we go and achieve a little bit more than winning the FA Cup, then I think we can stand up and say this is the best attacking line up we’ve ever had,” he said.
