Arsenal star’s outrageous assessment of current strike force

Arsenal’s Invincibles of 2003/2004 were arguably the greatest team this country has ever had.

But Arsenal star Theo Walcott reckons Arsene Wenger’s current strike force has the potential to be even better than the one he had over a decade ago.

Quite the claim, huh?

He told the Daily Telegraph: “When I came, it was [Robert] Pires and [Freddie] Ljungberg, [Dennis] Bergkamp, [Thierry] Henry and [Jose Antonio] Reyes.

“That’s some attacking force as well. I think this squad probably does beat it, but we need to prove it first.”

Wenger now boats of a forward line consisting of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Joel Campbell and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

And Walcott reckons the quality in the squad can easily replicate that of the unbeaten side in 2003/2004.

“That’s how good we are going forward,” Walcott added.

“It is a headache for the manager when you have that many great attacking options.

“Go and achieve a little bit more than winning the FA Cup and then I think we can stand up and say this is the best attacking line up we’ve ever had.”

Arsenal’s current strike force is good, there’s no denying that. But surely nowhere near the quality of that famous unbeaten side?

All that time sidelined with injury appears to have got Theo all confused.
