Though Olivier Giroud often bares the brunt of much of the abuse thrown at the failing Arsenal frontline, perhaps he is not the only man to blame.
It seems as if the Frenchman is either a few goals away from being lauded, or a couple of misses short of being lambasted.
Walcott gets 140k just to get benched by some nigerian lad who is on 1k a week

Perhaps that is something that will never leave the striker, who has proved divisive ever since moving to North London in 2012.
"Here's the starting lineup lads, Danny, Alexis and Iwobi are gonna lead our attack .."

However, teammate Theo Walcott, who has been deployed as the frontman in place of Giroud often enough, gets off lightly as a result.
Iwobi deserves 140k per week, not Walcott
— Isaac (@dribblesanchez) March 19, 2016
Such is the nature of the perception of Giroud in this country, we often forget just how long Walcott has been a Gunners player without ever pulling up any trees.
Walcott had better fasten his seat belt to that bench. Gonna be there a looooooooong time!

At 27 years of age, the former Southampton prodigy has proved ineffective more often than not across his decade with the club.
R.I.P Theo Walcott. Finished by a 19-Year Old.

In fact, he’s a reflection on the club’s last decade as a whole. Thrillingly slick against weaker opposition on occasion, though often fails to impact on the bigger games.
Wenger clearly has had enough of Walcott.

Now, he has lost his place to the emerging Alex Iwobi, who got the nod against Barcelona in midweek, as well as in today’s crunch game away at Everton.

It’s a sad reflection on a player who created such a buzz when he emerged on the South Coast, but even sadder on Arsenal Football Club as a whole.
Wenger has invested 10 years in Walcott, hard to believe he can't even make the starting 11 now
— Bergkamp & Bergkamp (@Orangeiceman10) March 19, 2016
This is a man who has captained the side TWICE recently, though really has done nothing to warrant being kept on for over 10 years.
The only reason walcott is even on the bench is because hes earning 140k a week. Embarrassing.
