When Arsenal took on Norwich in the last-16 of the Carabao Cup, the genuine consensus was that the Gunners would easily get past the Championship side.
But, Arsene Wenger's team turned in a truly woeful display at the Emirates and were only bailed out by 18-year-old striker Eddie Nketiah, who came off the bench in the 85th minute to score two goals.
Josh Murphy had given the Canaries a deserved lead and they also should have had a late penalty when Mathieu Debuchy hauled down James Husband in the area.
Nevertheless, Arsenal will be in Thursday's draw alongside both Manchester clubs.
Wenger clearly views the competition as the perfect environment to give fringe players some much-needed minutes but sadly, they have not fulfilled the manager's wishes.
Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin, Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi and Olivier Giroud all featured from the off, but the quintet failed to turn in a display that would put them in contention for a call up to the first team starting XI.
WALCOTT THE WORST OF THE LOT
But, it was Walcott who came under the most scrutiny, with the former Southampton man somehow lasting the whole 120 minutes.
He may have been captain, but the English winger simply could not control the ball and was repeatedly caught offside.
Speaking on Sky Sports' Football Debate show, Wright now believes that Walcott's time at the club is at an end and he simply must leave if he is to stand any chance of a big finale in his career.
WRIGHT HAS HIS SAY
"I think so, for (his own) sake," he said when asked if Walcott should move on.
"I'm not sure where he can go now with Arsenal and he's only playing in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
"He'll want to finish on a high in respect of what he's doing, he's given Arsenal great service in the time he's been there and for me he should move on for himself."
Former Premier League striker Darren Bent - who was also on the show - agreed with Wright's advice for the misfiring Walcott.
DARREN BENT AGREES
"The freshness of a move somewhere else might be perfect for him," he said. "He's been there for a long, long time now and I'm not quite sure how much more he can improve while he's there.
"But you never know, sometimes you can go somewhere else with new surroundings and, all of a sudden, you can kick on again. Maybe that's what he needs."
January could finally see Walcott's time at Arsenal come to an end. It should have probably happened sooner.
