Theo Walcott destroyed on Twitter for two moments vs MLS All-Stars

Ten years on from his £12 million move to Arsenal and Theo Walcott continues to bewilder and frustrate fans.

The 27-year-old joined when Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg were still at the club and under their tutelage, he was tipped for greatness.

Yet that couldn't be further from the case.

January marked his 10th anniversary in north London but the general consensus at the Emirates Stadium is that Walcott has progressed very little throughout his stay.

Time is well and truly running out for the winger to prove his worth and after another poor pre-season performance on Friday morning, this time against the MLS All-Stars, it would seem the Arsenal faithful have run out of patience.

In what eventually finished as a 2-1 victory for Wenger's side, thanks to goals from Joel Campbell and Chuba Akpom, Walcott's many flaws once again came to the fore.

Indecisive, wasteful and sloppy, the England international lost possession and squandered chances in front of goal on a number of occasions in his favoured striker role.

Two particularly poor moments summarised his woeful display, the first being a wasted goalscoring opportunity and the second a tame effort (see below and find the suggested time slot).



Those who stayed up to watch Arsenal take on Didier Drogba and co. on stateside duly expressed their hate for Walcott on Twitter with the verdict unanimous: he must be sold.


Ouch. Nevertheless, Arsenal secured victory at the Avaya Stadium thanks to Campbell's inch-perfect penalty in the 11th minute and Akpom's tap-in at the death.

The Gunners were made to work for their win, though, after Drogba scored his 16th goal in 16 games against them in first-half stoppage time.

Granit Xhaka also made his debut in Arsenal colours and largely impressed in the centre of the park.
