Theo Walcott to Miss 10 Weeks With Dislocated Shoulder

theo-walcott_01Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott will miss 10 weeks after dislocating his shoulder during an England training session. A hereditary condition weakens the 19-year-old’s shoulder ligaments.    It was his right soldier, not his left, operated on last March.

Walcott should return for England’s next meaningful match next spring.  Arsenal, however, will take a punch to the face.  If he returns as scheduled, Walcott still would miss the remaining two Champions League group stage ties and eleven Premier League matches, including showdowns with Chelsea (Nov. 30) and Liverpool (Dec. 21).

Gooners surely will delight about more Emmanuel Eboue on the right wing or farcical four central midfielder formations.

The incident certainly questions the cramming of meaningless international friendlies into an already congested fixture list, and it plausibly questions why robust midweek England training let a lummox like Scott Parker near Walcott.

As argued by Arseblogger, the FA should pay Walcott’s wages for the interim.  If I barged into a friend’s apartment, picked up his lovely porcelain vase that tied the room together and hurled it carelessly across the room, I would pay for it.
