Whilst our young right full back has been receiving the brunt of our defensive criticism this season, it’s the left side that I continually get irritated by, Walker has made his mistakes this season & his enthusiasm for attacking rather than defending has been one of his major downfalls but I believe he is a enthusiastic rough diamond that requires a little more refining in the art of defending.
BAE on the other hand is old enough to have learnt from his previous mistakes but continually commits the same ones as he has since he joined us.
Ok so he doesn’t like football & is only in it for the money. Very honest of you Benoit although I wish he wouldn’t take that attitude onto the pitch quite so often. You know the one. The player one you see in the huddle before KO who’s got his his head up like a meerkat, having a look around & to me not focusing on the game ahead. It’s that lack of concentration that is my major issue.
His common mistakes will happen during most matches. Like fouling an opposing player, usually by pulling him back with his arm because he’s lost possession trying some flick,trick or that pull back that a lot of players have sussed out or trying to beat a player twice or three times when he’d got past him the first time & had a great chance to cross.
How many times do we see him hoof the ball in the air for no apparent reason? Our match against Werder Bremen away in the Champions league particularly comes to mind as we were cruising 2-0 up in that match with two minutes till half time and he belts the ball straight up & to the opposition who go onto score.
I mean how many of us have seen a ball kicked out of the Lane? He managed that & while it received a big cheer, it just highlighted to me that we need to look at replacing him this summer.
He’s given away his fair share of penalties too, Anfield being the most recent. Admittedly Suarez loves a dive but his challenge was both badly timed & clumsy. His ability at going forward is good but his final cross or pass is usually poor. If you look at our second goal against Arsenal his poor pass indirectly lead to the goal so there’s something to be thankful for, a crap pass
It concerns me that because of his honest attitude to football, mad barnet & different coloured boots that he’s become a bit of a favourite at Spurs which he doesn’t deserve.He even has a catchy song, which compared to Azza’s & Daws tame “there’s only one” is a bloody insult to those two who do love & give their all for the club.
Hopefully those rather fanciful headlines in January about him leaving for a bigger club come to fruition, as I for one, will be happy to see him leave for a decent price.
