Step aside, Wayne Rooney. All eyes are now on Theo Walcott to save the day*. My online finds so far:
- Video on Theo Walcott – that boy is fast! He is faster than Thierry Henry and isn’t afraid to confront multiple defenders… like Ronaldhino.
- More videos!
- Blog on Theo Walcott – frequently updated.
- There’s even a Wikipedia entry on Theo Walcott!
And I just wrote in to BBC Sportdaq, asking them to add Theo Walcott to the list of players whose shares we can buy:
Dear BBC Sportdaq,
Now would be a great time to add Theo Walcott to the list of players!
[Update: BBC Sportdaq replied to me, saying Theo has been added! He officially IPO’d today (10/5/06). Hurrah! *buy shares*]
*England has to rely on goalscoring midfielders like Stephen Gerrard and Frank Lampard because I don’t think the remaining striker Peter Crouch has the edge and tenacity to constantly find the back of the net. Who knows – the inclusion of a brand new player that opposing teams don’t know much about, could work out for England in the end.
