Yeah, don't want to sound like overfed toddler, emergency Ingrish teechas, message board Nazis.
As much as I may have opinion, I do wholeheartedly welcome opposing views.
Hopefully fans don't turn on Saka like they did with Iwobi when he didn't look like a prime Messi every week.
Correct. But let's also hope we won't give him 5 years of mediocre performances like Iwobi every week.
Saka is way more talented than Iwobi, the latter showed glimpses but he never showed he had a future with us. I think Saka has a great future with us, he's likely to be the break out player this season, with Willock, who I want to see starting more. Exciting times!
Iwobi never once looked nearly as good as Saka is looking every week. He'll be cut enough slack because he has earned it. Iwobi, not so much.
You only just started watching football?
Iwobi was class when he first broke into the team.
I don't agree.
Different players more than anything. Iwobi more of a midfielder playing winger while Saka is more exciting because hes direct, a more destructive dribbler and has good acceleration. Both had their uses but Sakas main advantage at this stage is that his projected end product looks much better.
Well he is already showing end product while Iwobi is yet to...
Saka is certainly not a better dribbler than Iwobi.
But I agree he is s a winger, Iwobi is a midfield.
Hes a more destructive dribbler. Very direct - capable of operating in small spaces but better attacking open space. Iwobi much better in tighter areas.
Ox wasn't the cleanest dribbler in the world but he would reliably bludgeon his way past people regularly. Iwobi being the naturally better dribbler doesn't mean he is a more destructive one.
Saka is a more effective dribbler than Iwobi. Iwobi looks tidier on the ball but he doesn’t get himself in dangerous positions as often as Saka. Also, Iwobi’s end product is still somewhat non existent despite being 6 years older.
I don't think we can judge Saka dribbling ability at senior level yet. Most who question his dribbling have clearly not watch him at u18 and u23 level. I think when he has fully developed physically and translated his whole skillset from u23 to seniors his dribbling will be even better than its now!
How quick is Saka? Is it only me who finds it difficult to judge his pace?
Saka is far better than Iwobi was at any stage for us cut the nonsense out ....
He is pretty quick. Very powerful runner. Although I would say he is much faster off the ball than on it.
Iwobi has poor end product but he is far better dribbler than Saka. Not even up for debate.
