Feel I have to add my two pence worth here. For me its not only Walsh who needs looking at but our amateur board is also culpable. We all knew for 12 months that our striker was not going to sign a new contract and was leaving. 12 months to find a new number 9. So Giroud was in the building but who was plan B or plan C. Surely someone at the top must have been asking these questions of both Walsh and Koeman. What happens if we dont get Giroud who is our back up. We pay Steve Walsh a lot of money and I am unconvinced of the value of that pay packet at this time. Walsh apparently wanted another Belgian, whom Koeman did not want, who eventually signed for Dortmund and has scored once in 9. Quoted recently as seeing himself as a number 10 not a 9. Maybe the fetish with the number 10 is Walshs not Koemans.
