Awful success rate for a out and out winger.

Depends on whether or not you look at it as poor crossing, good defending, or the strikers being in the wrong position.

Yep.  That's exactly what I'm saying - you can twist stats to suit your agenda.  The cross is only as good as the person at the other end of it (or not). Getting the cross in is one aspect, having someone at the other end is another.

Well, no, not really. If the cross falls to the first defender or flies over it's target then it's a shit cross.

terrible stats/ Theo Walcott had far better stats, do you rate him?

Yep - I do rate him.  What exactly I rate him is another thing.

Haha - quite correct.  That post should have belonged on the football cliche thread.

I rate Downing, I just think Liverpool have paid well over the odds, again.

He's not 'shit' he's just worth a lot less than 20m

Where do you get your stats from? He scored 9 league goals and 7 assists. In all competitions he scored 13, 9 assists. The previous year it was just 4 and 2.

Last season in PL Walcott had a 13% success rate in aerial duels, Nasri had 12%. But even with the assist figures, Nasri did over double the amount of key passes per game, according to the stats.

Walcott attempted on average, 16 passes per game last year, less than any other Arsenal outfield player except Bendtner who averaged 13.6. Bendtner's average number of attempted passes per game, was less than any of the 4 Arsenal keepers who played last season.

Walcott scored 1 in 6 shots last year, Nasri 1 in 5 shots, Fabregas averaged 1 in 16 shots last season.
