I feel like the one thing that makes Walcott worth having is that over the years he's managed a good number of goals and assists a season despite not being involved that much in general play which is great for a winger.

This season, he's got three goals and two assists in 27 matches.

Needs to be shipped off in the Summer in my opinion.

Giving Allardyce money was always a bad idea.

Rumours of China and America .....and I'm fucking hopeful. ...he was awful again today had a few chances (probably more than most) on the pitch for us ....think we need Rich or Lookman for the rest of the season over this waster.

We donít need to talk about him, lost his pace, not good enough for Premierleague. Should go to the States.

He is so bereft of confidence it's untrue. I don't think I've seen him do anything by instinct all season.
Something clever written by someone else.

His runs in behind make a difference re stretching the opposition.

But hasnít scored enough and has messed up a few decent opportunities in big games which are where you want players with his experience to make a difference for us.

Always seemed to have good runs of form but theyíll be more difficult to find in a struggling team as opposed to someone guaranteed top 4 as Arsenal were.

Iíd rather we didnít have to talk about him.

But Iíd certainly prefer we donít continually pick him regardless of performance.

Was about to say the same. 

Also its weird all the pacey, wonder kids hitting the scene at around 17 seem to be past it long before they hit 30. Probably down to the effect of playing the game at that level for so long.  But I'm Sure, Michael Owen said something about him losing his mojo for the game long before he retired, so maybe that's what happening to Theo as well.

The Chinese would be a godsend (actual money) and he is indeed shit enough for MLS.

His game has obviously always been based on his blistering pace. He has never had to worry too much about other aspects of his game as his pace has always got him out of jail, but he doesn't have that to fall back on now and its showing. Hopefully we can move him on in the summer.

Looked decent when he first signed for us.

Bet Wenger knew he was about to fall off a cliff.

I think a part of it is that the game has changed over the past 10-15 years.  It's just so rare to have a through ball with a player running clear on to it these days, everything so much more compacted and organised.

Zero confidence, very rarely shows for the ball and looks petrified when he get's it. As has been said his desire and appetite seem to have completely gone. Nowhere near good enough for any prem team, hopefully we can offload this summer.

You know, a team with Walcott's a little like the mule with the spinning wheel.

No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it.
