Flocking to Twitter, many Southampton fans were left unimpressed by the performance of winger Theo Walcott as their side took on Burnley today.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has been under a fair bit of pressure following the Saints’ lacklustre start to this 2021/2022 Premier League campaign, coming after a summer where they lost two key players in Danny Ings and Jannik Vestergaard.
Should Southampton sell Theo Walcott?
Yes, need to cash in
No, be patient
There have been murmurs of unrest behind the scenes at St. Mary’s with some players apparently expecting Hasenhuttl to be sacked, according to a recent report from Football Insider.
It’s safe to say the pressure is on the 54-year-old to keep his job and he will be hoping his side can steadily climb out of contention for the Championship drop.
Another man who appears to be under pressure from fans is Walcott, who was marked out for criticism on Twitter for his performance against the Clarets today.
Missing big chances to get on the scoresheet, the 32-year-old was the subject of wrath from many Saints fans after another lacklustre display – find all of their verdicts on his outing down below.
Southampton fans slam Walcott…
“My god that was a poor effort from Walcott he has been completely useless so far”
“Walcott and Redmond summed up in 1 minute there, pathetic”
“Walcott is awful”
“Walcott offers absolutely nothing. Just standing still whilst Livramento is running with the ball down walcott’s wing. It’s really poor. Ralph has to be brave at half time here.”
“Walcott is trash”
“Walcott is useless”
“And Walcott is still on the pitch…?!”
