I think Michu has had a similar season. Both unable to get going due to injury but good players nonetheless. Thought Benteke has still looked good, especially taking into account the players he has around him. Thought he was good last night too.

He is a real handful and would give any defence a hard time but not on the same planet as Suarez.Aguero or Negredo


Suarez and Aguero are different types and they don't grow on trees. If we are going to compare every siging with these two then we're always going to be on a downer. Negredo is a good player but there's nothing to say that Giroud or Benteke can't match him. Again, the calibre of player that one is surrounded by can make a huge difference.

Benteke may have an argument that his back up players are not up to much but Giroud can't really complain about his midfield back up , albeit he would possibly desire a better feed from the wings.

What's your point, Potter ?

Mainly that there's not a lot wrong with our midfield skill wise but their directness could be upped a bit which I am sure would benefit Giroud.

Negredo has really impressed me he is a natural goalscorer which Giroud isn`t.I admire the job he does for us but the only thing he has over Nagredo is his song.

On his retirement from media workAlan Hansen said his biggest regret was describing Theo Walcott as not having a football brain

Well you'll never win anything with kids.
I'd have thought his biggest regret was taking up punditry. Oh hang on, £40000 a week for being a miserable, dour git, that may be why he took it up!

Just read that Theo won't be back in full training for two to three weeks (announced on 11.09.).

I thought he was earmarked for a return in the Spurs game.

Anyone have any detail as to what's going on there?

Just a guess but I'd say they are making sure he doesn't travel with England and get injured again.

I read an article by Theo a couple of weeks ago saying he definitely would not be back for the Spurs game but hoped to be back after the next Internationals.Could be available for the Hull match maybe.

The club said right from the start it would be October time when Walcott would be back.

I miss Theo playing. I think with him back. We'll see Ozil sticking in a central role and hopefully a more direct style of play.

Nice to see him back last Saturday. Good he got ten minutes under his belt. I think he worries defenders more than anyone else.

with his new bald head, and 14 on his back. He reminded me of TH14 yesterday

The fans forums of the opposition who we are due to play are always relieved if Theo is not playing

Hope Theo is benefiting from training with the national team. Wasn't used yesterday. Hope he isn't used against the Scots either.
