Let’s talk about Theo Walcott for a second. The player has some known deficiencies, right? Despite all of his skills, he is inconsistent and injury prone. We know this. But this guy is coming to Everton with a perfect attitude, isn’t he? He genuinely seems happy to be a Blue. He knows he will get game time, and it seems to have put a pep in his step. I, for one, am excited to see him get on the pitch. Can he be the one to push us up the table? It remains to be seen, but he is certainly something different from what the Toffees have had in recent years.
