Arsenal fans react to Theo Walcott’s latest Twitter post

Stand-in Arsenal skipper Theo Walcott posted about the honour of leading the club out on his official Twitter account on Wednesday, following the 1-0 win against West Ham United in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night, and Gunners fans were quick to respond.

The 28-year-old has relied on playing in the cup competitions this term having been limited to just 46 minutes on the pitch across three substitute appearances in the Premier League, and Arsene Wenger handed him the captain’s armband against the Irons.

While the north London outfit progressed to the semi-finals of the competition thanks to Danny Welbeck’s goal, it wasn’t a night for Walcott to remember as he failed to add to the four goals he has scored this season by missing a sitter with his head.

Arsenal supporters took to social media to respond to the wide-man’s latest post, and while one said ‘thanks for the memories, now here’s the door’, another simply said “leave my club”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
