DID anyone ever tell Theo Walcott the tale of the tortoise and the hare?
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that the speed demon’s pace is the reason behind his injury woes: “At his pace, when you get stopped, you are always vulnerable.
“When you play against a player who is so quick, sometimes you can mistime tackles.
“It’s not necessarily always that you want to hit him, but he is so quick that you think, ‘Now I can get the ball’, and it has gone away.”
So there’s your answer Theo, hold your horses young man – you never see David Beckham legging it about, and he’s like 100 or something.
