Comparing Walcott to Alexis, lol. Stats don’t always tell the full story.
Sanchez’ strengths considerably outweigh Theo’s. What is Theo actually good at other than finishing? He can’t cross, he struggles with simple passes and he hasn’t yet learned the offside rule. Sanchez has the finishing attribute too. But he can also do a lot more – he supplies many key passes, through balls etc, can shoot from a distance, creates a lot more than Theo, can change a game in an instant, dribbles through defences. I could go on.
You can argue that Walcott deserves his salary, fine, but he doesn’t deserve to be on only £30,000 less than a far superior player.
I just hope making Özil our highest paid player by a long way – which he deserves – will convince him to sign the contract. If not, build him a statue, give him the naming rights to the Emirates, give him the bloody Emirates, I don’t care, just keep him!
