thumbnail Hello,

The 23-year-old may be struggling over deciding whether to prolong his career at Arsenal but Roxy Arms have a few words of wisdom in his search for a more central role



It's not unusual for players to hear the crowd pleading with them from the stands to sign a new deal, but Arsenal's Theo Walcott is being targeted by a few musically, er, 'gifted' fans intent on seeing the forward pen new terms at the Emirates Stadium.

In a rather unlikely turn of events, a collection of supporters calling themselves Roxy Arms have made it their mission to see the 23-year-old winger/striker/what-is-he-really-anyway put pen to paper and have a grime record on sale entitled 'Walcott (Sign da Ting!)' to make sure that Wenger keeps his man.

Walcott has been stalling on a new deal as he looks for reassurances from the club hierarchy that he will be used in a central role up front.

And if he's relegated to the bench once again following the improved form of Lukas Podolski and Gervinho, then at least he'll have something to listen to while he works out what his next career move will be.

Extra Time is rather fond of the track - check out the lyrics below to see exactly how Van Persie is rhymed with trophy for a key reason why.

Roxy Arms - 'Walcott (Sign da Ting!)'

Theo!

Come on mate,

Time's tickin'.
Last year of the contract,
Still ain't signed it.
What's going on man?
Spill the beans.

Walcott, Walcott, Walcott, Walcott,
Sign da ting, sign da ting.

Oi Theo (What?) stick to the wing. (Why?)
Playing up front just ain't your thing, (Awwwww)
Apart from your pace what else are you offering?
Now we got Oxlade-Chamberlain. (Oh!)
In your spot, technique he brings, that's why the fans his name we sing, (Ox)
Should be you but it's not its him. We ain't playing you 'til you sign the ting. (Whoops)

Sign the ting nuh, sign the ting. (What?) Theo Walcott, sign the ting. (Yep!) If you don't, well, then you're stuck on the bench, (What?) listening to Frimpong chat about Dench. (Yep!)
We got Podolski, we got Giroud, (Chim-Chiminee) even Gervinho's been up front too, (No diggity!)
That ain't to say that they're better than you, but you got a year left, (What? What?) so what you gonna do then?

Walcott, Walcott, Walcott, Walcott,
Sign da ting, sign da ting.

You'll never get more love than from The Gunners. (We love you!)
Think about that before you do a runner.
If you stay I'll be happy, in fact delighted. (Yes!)
If you go I hope you don't go to Man Utd (Boo!)
Are you gonna be just like the rest, just take the money, (hmm?) forget the crest, (Yep!)
The big phat cannon upon your chest, (What? What?)
Cos' That's what makes you play your best.

Sign the ting nuh, sign the ting. (What?) Theo Walcott, sign the ting. (Yep!) If you don't, well, then you're stuck on the bench, (What?) listening to Frimpong chat about Dench. (Yep!) We got Podolski, we got Giroud, (Chim-Chiminee) even Gervinho's been up front too, (No diggity!)
That ain't to say that they're better than you, but you got a year left, (What? What?) so what you gonna do then?

Walcott, Walcott, Walcott, Walcott,
Sign da ting, sign da ting.

So Theo (yeah?) what's it gonna be?
When you look into the mirror. What do you see? (hmmm..)
Do you wanna be a part of history? Or are you gonna be like van Persie?
The little boy inside him saying join me! It's been a long time since you won a trophy.
And that was for being a young personality.
