Arsenal fans mock Theo Walcott after winger names his worst performance

Arsenal's social media team really should have foreseen the backlash when they decided to ask some of the club's stars for their worst ever performance.

Why? Because Theo Walcott was in the video. You know, Theo 'I'm really not that good at football' Walcott. The same guy who has had a million terrible performances. Yep, that guy.

The England winger picked a nondescript away performance against Fulham as his worst during his time in north London, which prompted Arsenal fans to respond in droves. The crux of the message being; you could have picked a million different games.

One fan wrote: "Theo was spoilt for choice with his worst game", while another added: Walcott "I've learned from all of that obviously" -well no you haven't mate you've been here 10 years and your whole career is just a time-lapse. I genuinely think that you are a professional con-artist."

Striker Olivier Giroud also participated in the misguided game, singling out his performance in the Champions League against Monaco, in which he missed a host of chances to score.

For the record, defender Calum Chambers picked Swansea after being terrorised by Jefferson Montero, Hector Bellerin picked Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, and Santi Cazorla opted for the 6-0 defeat against Chelsea. Tomas Rosicky provided the best answer, refusing to pick a single game while saying: "I always play very good football". Fair play.

Walcott is under-fire at the moment following the emergence of youngster Alex Iwobi, who was handed a start in the Champions League against Barcelona at the Nou Camp earlier this month and found the back of the net against Everton last weekend.

Iwobi's rise to prominence means Walcott, who has four goals and two assists in 22 Premier League appearances this season, has seen his game time significantly reduced - which could endanger his place at Euro 2016 with England.

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknap believes that Walcott's lack of form, coupled with the emergence of Dele Alli, means the Arsenal man's place in France is under threat.


"I’ve always liked Theo as a player but he’s at the crossroads now and needs to start producing on a regular basis," Redknapp said. "He doesn’t even get in the Arsenal team nowadays. At Old Trafford the other week I thought he’d murder that United defence but he barely got a kick.

"He’s useful as an impact player but players like [Dele] Alli and [Ross] Barkley have flown past him and are threatening to leave him out in the cold."

Walcott has made Roy Hodgson's squad for the Three Lions' upcoming friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands before the end of the month, but his long-term future looks anything but assured.

Do you think Arsenal should look to sell Walcott this summer?
