I sometimes think that the Arsenal fans are too harsh on our long serving forward Theo Walcott, and that he should be given more playing time by both Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and by Gareth Southgate or whoever happens to be the manager of the England national team at the time.
Even the title I have put at the top of this post could be seen as a bit on the harsh side on the 28-year old, as he scored 19 goals for the Gunners last season, at a ratio of just better than one every other game, and he already has three for the new season so far, despite being well down the pecking order of forward players available to the boss.
However, I have also been as frustrated by the form, performances or attitude of Walcott as the rest of you Arsenal fans out there, which is why I am finally ready to give up on him and am not too fussed about the Arsenal transfer rumour reported about Arsenal being set to sell him in the January transfer window.
The Daily Mail claims that he could return to his former club Southampton but if that does not happen there will be a few Premier League clubs willing to sign hi Theo, especially if he starts scoring on a regular basis.
If he does that, however, I hope that it does not convince Wenger and Arsenal to keep him. How many chances has Walcott had and wasted? The last time his contract was up for renewal, for instance, saw him go on a great run only for it to fizzle out when the deal was done.
It is time for Arsenal to sell Walcott, in my opinion, but will a glut of goals make any difference?
