The TTO: Robin Van Persie v Theo Walcott


This week’s Thursday Thigh Off sees Robin Van Persie take on Theo Walcott. Both of these Gunners know how to score great goals, and also, much less impressively, how to consistently wear base layers. But let’s not hold that against them.

Robin Van Persie
Robin is a twenty-five-year old striker from Holland who plays for the Dutch national team when he’s not on kick about with Arsenal. He may look like he hasn’t started shaving yet, but but he’s actually about to become a father for the second time.  Random: Robin’s two-year-old son Shaqueel comes to all the home games and calls him, “Daddy Arsenal”.


Theo Walcott
Theo’s also a striker, born and bred in London. Over the last few years he’s transitioned from boy-man to man-boy and now at the age of twenty, we think he’s about five more years away from successfully reaching full-blown adulthood. Kudos, kid. Random: Theo carried the Olympic torch in 2008 when it was being paraded around London.


Who gets your vote, Kickettes?

Last week’s TTO winner was Lucas Neill who scraped through by the strength of a chin whisker to beat Matthew Upson – by only three votes.  Well done, luv. Next week, Barcelona!

  6. carly says:

    Chocolate thighs usually win for me. So Theo.

  7. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    I think I’m going to go with Theo for this one… both of them are a bit skinny for me, but I suppose Theo’s are better.

  8. Lucy says:

    Theo's thighs win for me!

  9. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    Theo although I think that Arsenal had better thighs to offer up than RVP's

  10. Dani.Mrs José Manuel Reina (PLQ) says:

    I go for Theo !

  11. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Theo does have very impressive thighs, but my vote is with Robin’s hairy wonders. Lovely.

    P.S. I love Vidic’s face in the 11th pic LOL

  12. boo says:

    robin! cuz theo still makes me feel like a pedo

  13. Moonie says:

    Has to be RvP for me – apart from in the pic with Vinnie, when I struggled to even acknowledge his presence nevermind his thighs!

  14. glamour.pixie says:

    Even though i lurv Robin, he has been out-thighed Theo it is!!!

  15. talithaxoxo says:

    I vote for Robin! Yay Barcelona next week

  16. kenita says:

    mmm i vote for theo

  17. Smurfette says:

    Man-boy Theo!

  18. SemiCharmed says:

    I'm gonna go with Theo, only because RVP's right knee freaks me out

  19. striker says:

    Can I vote for Danny? That was a lovely little surprise there. My vote is for Theo. RVP is a little too skinny for me. I wish Theo would get rid of the pirate mustache though.

  20. Blondie says:

    Theo for me =)

  21. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbeloa) says:

    Theo…because I have a random and unexplained hatred for RvP that I can’t seem to get over.

  22. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Theo… just because I don’t like the leg hair on Robin

  23. Barcelinha says:

    i’d like some tender Theo thigh to go :D

  24. carly says:

    Chocolate thighs usually win for me. So Theo.

  25. Lucy says:

    Theo’s thighs win for me!

  26. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    P.S. I love Vidic’s face in the 11th pic LOL

  27. mchen says:

    Love RVP, but he’s too skinny to win the TTO—Theo’s got great thighs.

  28. kumiko says:

    i go for the fellow dutch… rvp! hup holland!

  29. Christina V says:

    Well this is a tricky one! First Van Persie pic is so cute but Walcott is better looking on the pitch, as weird as it sounds… I say fifty-fifty.

  30. shay says:

    Gonna have to go with Walcott. Van Persie is not too bad but Theo has the advantage with that smooth, just got up close and personal with a hot leg wax thing going for him.

  31. darkly dreaming says:

    I think Van Persie left his base layers in the dressing room.

    *See exhibit 6/10 above (the one with cole).

    Something is flying pretty high there.

  32. Toni Waters says:

    No contest here: Theo

  33. mertz says:

    i don’t think i can handle this thigh off. i love them both. lol. but theo walcott is hot.

  34. imhereforthenando says:

    This breaks my heart, since I love Robin van Persie. He's so great, and his son calling him "Daddy Arsenal" is probably the cutest thing I have ever heard. Sadly, my vote goes to Theo "Porn 'Stache" Walcott.

  35. Eternal Dreamer says:

    Theo Walcott.

  36. Fer_Lahm says:

    Theo has my vote, i hate robin!

  37. HiL says:

    Theo. RVP didn't do it for me really.

  38. aristeia says:

    Definitely Theo!

  39. Villa*baby says:

    I have to vote for Robin, although it's obvious he's gonna lose… I just have to…

  40. Nina (Mrs Gerrard) says:

    hmm.. the best thighs out of these has to be Danny's, or Vidic's. But since I can't vote for either of them, I guess my vote goes to Theo.

  41. Kahtilyn13 says:

    I'm so voting Theo Walcott. I think Van Persie's thighs are scrawny.

  42. Zatil says:

    Theo, indeed!!

  43. Sarah says:

    I'm going for Theo because of picture 12 – those are some serious ninja skillz!Great RVP article though, I hadn't seen that one before. He's adorable.

  44. FootballerChick43 - says:

    I'm going to go with Robin van Persie. For no particular reason.

  45. Erin says:

    I must admit I'm not overly impressed with either of their quads. But I suppose my vote goes to Theo.

  46. i_luv_futbol_booty says:

    theo definitely takes this one although i do think robin is way prettier

  47. zo-t says:

    van persie! mostly because he’s so pretty…. and i appreciate the leg hair actually… bit of a relief to see some guys still think it’s alright to not wax on, wax off…

  48. Meer. says:


    Although I’m the first one to shout ‘Holland!’, Robin is looking worse and worse with every calenderyear going by. Those furry, scrawny legs don’t help either.
