Theo Walcott


#1227

He’s prolific at delivering shitty performances.


#1228

In others words, on the bench.


#1229

Well that’s not necessarily true but I do agree he played significant part in two goals.


#1230

Your president is Donald Trump tho


#1231

Walcott made a goal happen at least from that shot, Idg why Walcott is getting hate when Giroud was much worse, he’s always a scapegoat whatever happens


#1232

Annoyed the hell out of me last night. Yes, he’s short of match fitness but so were others. Nothing came off for Theo and it looked like he didn’t really care.


#1233

Yes, it was particularly impressive how he couldn’t control or pass the ball to a team-mate on the first goal or finish his chance on the third.

Surely you meant to say that we scored two goals despite his involvement in them.


#1234

Wincing every time he got the ball. So frustrating.


#1235

Theo Walcott CV.

Fast feet.
Slow brain.
Inconsistent and injury prone.


#1236

Nelson made more successful passes in 7 minutes than Walcott made in 83, but of course, he shouldn’t be criticised at all. Bringing up the bad performance of others to suggest this definitely isn’t whataboutery at it’s finest.


#1237

Stealing a living this guy.


#1238

I seriously can’t believe there is still so much misunderstanding and so much discussion of Theo. His thread should be as inactive as the Elneny one. He’s a useful specialist if used right, who happens to have an extremely unpleasing aesthetic style. Story over.

Feel free not to contribute to the activity by posting then.

You’ll improve? You’re nearly 30 mate, if you haven’t grasped the offside rule by now then I’m not sure you ever will.

“I won’t dwell on that too long. It’s just about me timing my runs slightly better, but I say the players are playing it too late, that’s my excuse anyway"

:laughing:


#1241

10 years into your stint mate. Aint improving shit.


#1242

For 10 years he couldn’t even improve his haircut.


#1243

Maybe because we have higher expectations for Walcott in comparison with Elneny because of his salary, period of time he has been at the club and reputation? With his weaknesses (ball retention, not good in combinations) he’s more a liability than an asset.


#1244

If you still have expectations of Walcott at this stage it’s kind of your own fault for ending up feeling disappointed.


#1245

Sure. Just thinking out loud for a reason there is more traffic here than in the Elneny-thread.


#1246

I don’t think it’s a surprise that the only two true Theo fans on here are Americans in you and AC. AC tries to act like he understands the nuance of the sport by flaunting his Spanish background but ultimately his American ignorance shines through.
