The 2012 PFA Young Player of the Year award looks even more silly now than it did at the time, with the Tottenham right-back beating the likes of Sergio Aguero, Danny Welbeck and Gareth Bale to the prestigious accolade last term. He also took his position in the PFA Team of the Year. Was Walker the best right-back in the division last year? Probably not, but people seem to like that he’s very fast and can hit the ball very hard from distance. It’s these visceral qualities which makes him stand out and take people away from his defensive deficiencies which were cruelly exposed in the 3-1 defeat at White Hart Lane against Manchester United last year, where the 22-year-old was arguably culpable for all three goals. The signs of his reputation far out-stripping his talent have been there for anyone that cared to look for them for quite some time, but his form this term has been very ordinary so far. According to Opta, he has been directly responsible for three goals so far this campaign, with countless others coming through his lack of positional awareness.
