Robbie Fowler is unsure why Theo Walcott has been selected to play for England and we have to say we agree with him.

With just eight goals in 36 starts, Theo has been total rubbish for some time and has lost his place in the Arsenal starting line-up to a 19-year-old.

It isn’t even that he hasn’t been hitting the back of the net with any regularity. His whole game has been awful, from his movement to his defensive contribution. Theo looks like a player who just can’t be arsed.

Writing in his column for The New Day, Fowler said of Walcott “If form is being rewarded, as it is for Danny Drinkwater, I’m not sure what Theo Walcott is doing in the squad.

“He’s not scoring for Arsenal so is clearly picked for what he’s done in the past.”

As I mentioned, it’s hard to argue with any of that.

While it’s always good to see Arsenal players get international recognition, it’s hard not to feel sorry for some other players who are missing out because Walcott is being rewarded for previous displays despite stagnating.

If England ever want to win anything, they might be better placed picking in-form players who deserve to be there based on current form than players who have consistently failed to deliver but once scored a hattrick against the Croatia.

Theo’s been dining on this and a few other select performances for years:
