Ramsey did well when he came back from his leg break last season. In fact it was during this week last season that Ramsey scored the winner against United in the 1-0 win. He had every right to be given a chance. Cesc was going, Nasri was meant to slip into the central role but then he went. Ramsey was next in line after his good comeback. He did well at first then struggled desperately and his season turned upside-down, luckily Rosicky got fit and slotted into that role. And Ramsey has only played recently because Arteta is injured.
As I said, I do like Walcott and believe he can be brilliant on his day, but for me he's too inconsistent and has had large periods again this year where he's been of no use to us - I've been waiting for him to develop for so long, but year after year it's the same thing.
I agree that he's inconsistent. I never said anything against that. I talked of his inconsistency and actually pointed out his good and bad periods of this season above. He needs to improve his consistency but he still produces. His stats show that. He regularly comes up trumps for us, scores some important goals and has been the main supplier to RVP.
I agree that Theo is better than Lennon but that doesn't hold much currency for me.
Well I wasn't saying anything other than that.. was I?
I criticised Lennon for his lack of end product and Johaldo sarcastically made it about Theo when in fact Walcott has been much more productive than him. Walcott doesn't compare to the really top, top players but he's been our best option out wide and he's been our second highest goal-scorer, our biggest assist-maker. He is better than Lennon. I've not said anything more than that. I know full well of his inconsistency, confidence-issues and inability to adapt his game when we're not dominating possession.
