walcott is better than anderson...but i guess he still has time to win it...

The Italian sports writers either didn't want to give the award to the same player twice in a row or they don't watch enough Spanish football. Aguero is far and away better than Walcott and Anderson, especially if you take last season's performance into consideration.
