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’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!
