    I guess it was youth. Hadn't smartened up to what a quality player had to possess yet.

    There is nothing that can be said that is good about England. The entire team and set-up are a shambles.

    Walcott a bit of a hype victim for mine. He was generally pretty good but only ever attracted criticism for not being even better. Suppose it's what happens when you don't win anything.

    A reasonably talented, but ultimately completely one dimensional, player imo. Extremely reliant on one or two key attributes (i.e. being very fast and a pretty decent finisher). Take those away and you've not really got much left.

    I suppose the hype about Walcott all boiled down to that one match in Croatia.

    I would suggest that there are less talented players who have achieved more, for whatever reasons.
