Arsenal youngster Theo Walcott believes that once Arsenal win one trophy, it will open gates for more trophies at the Emirates.
Arsenal have been facing the trophy-drought for the past eight years. They have less chances of winning anything this year as well as they are on 5th in the Barclays Premier League, out of the FA Cup and on verge of elimination from the Champion League.
However, they next face their rivals Tottenham on Saturday and Walcott talked about Arsenal’s glory days.
“Once the team wins the first trophy, you will start to see us coming back to where we should be,” Walcott told Arsenal magazine.
“When your team is playing well it makes your job easier and when you are winning games it is fantastic to be a part of it. However, it is when things aren’t going too well that you need to stand out and get your team back involved.
“We have got players in the dressing room who can create something out of nothing, and I want to be part of that backbone.”
Arsene Wenger is being blamed a lot these days and the manager has come in the line of fire. However Walcott, who himself had trouble signing a new contract this season, believes that the team occasionally fails on the pitch, and owes a trophy to Wenger.
“The boss has always had so much belief in me from a young age, but we haven’t won anything for a long time now, so we want to pay him back by winning something,” Walcott added.
“If we don’t perform he always takes it back on himself, but at times it is not fair because we are the players that go out there and do it.
“He definitely lets us know when we are not performing, though, which is the right way to do it.”
