Video: Arsenal legend Thierry Henry stunned at the thought of Theo Walcott playing up front

Theo Walcott

Poor Theo, he's done nothing to deserve this... has he?

Ask Theo Walcott what position he plays, and I bet you a million pounds he will tell you he's a striker. However, Thierry Henry has different views on the pace merchant's ability to lead the line by himself.

The Arsenal legend was on Sky Sports previewing the shiny new season that is now upon us when the discussion turned to the Gunners' options if Olivier Giroud isn't fit enough. While Walcott has played up front on a few occasions, most recently in the Community Shield against Chelsea last weekend, Henry is NOT convinced, as this video proves:

Well, I guess as the saying goes, if you've got nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all, and that certainly applies to here to Mr Henry. 

Walcott might have a chance to prove Henry's shocked reaction to be unwarranted when Arsenal take on West Ham United tomorrow afternoon in their first game of the 2015/16 Premier League season.
