    Mate, talk about jumping the gun :lol:. Saka is special - but so is Sancho.

    I think his actual versatility works in this regard - he's very effective all along that left hand side because of his footballing IQ and ability to play in tight spaces. I think while LW is still probably his best position, there's a hell of a lot of mileage we can get out of him as an LCM in a 433 system.

    I rarely put people on the ignore list as it is, I even took Rich & Reed off it. I just don't have the patience for repeated antagonism. I'm here to talk football, not engage in petty squabbles and agendas against players (even ones I don't like).

    I want him to look at Foden and Greenwood and keep pushing. He’s in elite company and should use that as motivation.

    Let's not forget Bukayo played left back for a long time and learned the trade of that position. This has helped him a lot playing on the right and supporting Bellerin or Cedric. This is something Pepe needs to learn.

    Conversely, I want the rest of the Hale End lads to look at Saka and use him as motivation too (especially Nelson, I'm tired of firming corn for backing him :lol:). He's testament to what diligence and bravery can do.

    He doesn't need to look at anyone. Saka is clearly very motivated individual already and has a strong family backing him. Foden and Greenwood may look more elegant on the ball, but they are not more capable. Saka is a better athlete than both, naturally stronger and much more versatile. Greenwood is just a better finisher and Foden a better passer.

    Of course he did. That's because I showed him up in one f***ing post in the Maitland-Niles thread not too long ago! He made a few claims which I proved him wrong and he didn't even bother replying. Instead he went hiding so he can protect his image that he's the AM resident academy expert and then put me on ignore! Bang up job there isn't it!

    samshere Why so serieuse?

    Agree with this. I won't be surprised if Saka ends up having a better career than them.

    On that thought, England are really spoiled for talent aren't they with Foden, Greenwood and Saka.

    I'm not saying they're better than him.

    I'm saying they're already kind of being labelled as England's big three prospects. They should all be using that as inspiration.

    I don't think we can say we know anything about how motivated Saka (or any of them are). It's easy to be motivated when you're playing for that first contract but when you get that first big payday can you keep pushing? Are you going to ball out in Miami this summer or come back early and work on your game?

    Instead of playing someone who understand the meaning of derby and will likely give everything what he got, the manager would rather play Pepe. Oh Arteta. :facepalm::lol:

    England deserve to lose him for keeping him with the u19s earlier this year. Should have been in the u21s at least.

    Doubt he’ll go with Nigeria.
