To be fair, all the countries in Africa that have a decent football set-up at a national level happen to be countries that also speak French. Football in Africa is dominated by West Africans, the only countries that are excluded from that list is Egypt and to an extent South Africa.
Ghana and nigeria must not count here I guess...
Although I see your point though.

Thats part of the reason he gets the stick though, he goes from moments of brilliance and dominating performances to not being able to trap a ball and running down blind alleys all game and side footing a shot from the edge of the box to the point that he was backpassing to the opposition goalkeeper.
Fixed that for you. He's probably as frustrating as watching kalou or gomez on the big stage when he's choking like he'd been gagged before the match.

So on average you're impressed by Walcott's contribution to the team?
Very few of these assists were anything special. Goal scoring is probably the one part of Walcott's game that is good enough.
I didn't say I was 'impressed' - I was just pointing out he isn't the liability everyone makes him out to be.

Don't hate on Squid. Your just jelly that he does nothing but is still richer than you.
When did I hate on squid?
He was good for sevilla, has a crapload of international caps for france and gets loads of money. He's just had a bad year at arsenal, but he's barely been used the past season anyway, so he hasn't really been given a chance this season but just gets flamed because it's funny for other people to flame him.
Weren't you the same guys flaming rosicky and kosc last season?
Djourou however...this doesn't apply to him, although he played a lot of games out of position in an injury ravaged arsenal team. But tbh with mert, kosc and verm he's not going to get too much games in the CB role unless the arsenal style 'get loads of injuries at the exact same time' occurs.
CL coefficients means we are now the 6th top side instead of 5th. We haven't had a good run for a while now
I reckon it's gonna be hard for you guys to get back up, real madrid are going from strength to strength, in reality the only team I can see you overtaking is possibly chelsea(although we just won the CL and would need at least 2 bad seasons and for you guys to make it to the quarters) or maybe bayern munich(unlikely since their team is young).
We've still got 20 points ahead, I think you'll stay in 6th place for at least 2 seasons, inter are unlikely to catch up to you guys since they're in the europa league so will get less points for winning it anyway.
