Arsenal have sold Owusu-Abeyie for an undisclosed fee.

I saw this guy play in the world youth cup and he was one of the best young players I had seen in a long time. He was very quick and skillful.

I don't why Arsenal spent so much on Theo Walcott because I don't think he is as good as Quincy. He just needed to be given more first team chances.

It seemed the only first team matches he was given real opportunites was in the Carling cup. I still could see him becoming a great player. What do you think of him leaving?

He only played one good match, against Japan. And the other matches he merely demonstrated what an increddible ball-hog he is.

His mentality is also very weak. If he loses the ball, he doesn't fight back to get posession of it again.

It's no co-incidence that the likes of Eboue, Gilbert, Flamini, Fabregas, Clichy et al broke through in the first team and Quincy didn't.

I doubt he'll be to endure it in the freezing climate of Russia for very long.

I was a touch surprised by the sale, but then again, he was not getting any matches either. From what I've heard, he never really showed the finishing ability to make that tremendous pace really count.

Whatever don't try to justify the sale of Quincy and make yourself feel better. You WANT him to be a ball-hog and have a weak mentality but thats not the truth.
