The point I was making about Walcott is that when he is on fire he causes defences lots of problems but the sad thing is that it isn't that often, hence not a major loss unlike RVP.
As for Ramsey, I think at this time of his career he is punching above his weight at Arsenal and could possibly do with playing at another club, yet again, another inconsistant player.
With regards to Wenger I think it is quite clear he doesn't hold the purse strings and is restricted on what talent he can bring to the club which shouldn't reflect on his ability to manage.
Infact most people didn't give Arsenal a chance at the beginning of last season and yet again with an average side, managed to still get third, not bad for a crap manager and an average side.
Having said that, it doesn't mean it was good enough or should the club settle for top 4 only but give the manager the money and then decide on whether he is crap or not.
Don't get me wrong, Wenger has screwed up royally sometimes and supporters should not view our club through rose tinted glasses, but he deffinately aint SH*TE and without knowing the conditions he has to work with within the club it's hard to have a true reflective view.
Wenger isn't a shit manager. But he's just like any other manager when he doesn't have money to spend.
Walcott isn't worth £95k p/w (and it would appear that Wenger agrees)
Walcott should have been tried in the centre last season. If that didn't work, then he should have been shipped out. He's no great winger.
