Flashback: 17 year old Theo Walcott graces 2007 Carling Cup Final
This afternoon Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Carling Cup final. Man Utd will start Darron Gibson and 18 year old Danny Welbeck: two young players who have been regulars in this competition and I'm particularly impressed with the glimpses I've seen of Welbeck. Watching him this afternoon will remind me of this day two year years ago when a 17 year old Theo Walcott scored the opening goal in the 2007 Carling Cup final against Chelsea with such quality that is a striking reminder of what Arsenal have been missing from the English speedster in the last four months.
It was a fantastic finish by the youngster and the atmosphere is amazing. Watching this again is also a reminder of the special, unique feel of a cup final when everything is heightened.
Lets hope for similar quality to be on display this afternoon; and if Danny Welbeck can supply it that would be great.
