Plenty of Everton fans are eating humble pie over Theo Walcott’s current form

Everton fans have not been won over by the former England attacker since he moved to Goodison Park.

It would be fair to say that Theo Walcott is not the most popular player at Everton. The former England winger had a great start to life after arriving at Goodison Park in a reported (The Telegraph) £20 million deal under Sam Allardyce. 

However, he soon fell into a long run of poor form. Everton fans have since been consistently frustrated with the performance of the attacker and he is often a lightning rod on Twitter for upset supporters when the going gets tough. 

But at the moment, not even the most cynical of Everton fans can have anything but praise for the former Arsenal player.

The 30-year-old came on for Moise Keane, inexplicably played out wide, at half-time and he put a fire under what had been a drab game up until that point. 

His good work was even rewarded when a delightful cross was headed home by Everton man-of-the-match Mason Holgate. 

It was an excellent display from the player and for once he was causing a stir among Everton fans on Twitter for all the right reasons.
