Arsenal should consider selling Walcott to Juventus

So Juventus reportedly want to sign Theo Walcott for £10m from Arsenal in the January transfer window – and Arsène Wenger should contemplate selling the England international to the Old Lady if such an offer were to materlialise.

Walcott’s time at Arsenal is clearly up. He wanted to play through the middle but he cannot head the ball and his physical strength is very poor.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has already shown more talent in his brief stint at Arsenal, and possesses far more potential than Walcott ever did.

Has there ever been a more over-hyped young player in the Premier League? We kept waiting and waiting for Walcott to finally fulfil his great promise but it has not happened – yet.

It’s time for Arsenal to end the Walcott experiment and give Oxlade-Chamberlain a permanent slot on the wing.

Barry’s return crucial for City and England

The true cost of Gareth Barry’s absence from the Manchester City and England fold is only just coming to light.

City’s underwhelming start to the season defensively has already seen the champions drop points at Anfield and almost embarrassed by lowly Southampton and Queens Park Rangers.

England’s pitiful showing on Tuesday night against Ukraine, especially in midfield where little protection was offered to the back four, proved they lack a disciplined man to provide protection to the rear guard.

Tom Cleverley endured a nightmare night against the Ukrainians, missing several chances, and it is apparent England need some real class in the ilk of Barry.

The 31-year-old has been out since pre-season with a groin injury and despite coming under constant attack from his detractors, he has been missed by both club and country.

His job is done with little fanfare or fuss, but is crucial in a successful side – his 51 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League champions is proof of that.
