    Really hoping Nelson explodes this season as it’s probably his last chance. On paper he’s an elite attacking mid.

    I'd give him a loan as his last chance if he doesnt work out this season. After all, he is going to have even less of a sniff now that Willian has joined and people like ESR + Willock aren't going on loan.

    For me his best position is a number 8 in our current team. I would also say winger but more of a traditional one and not an inside forward like Auba plays on the left wing.

    In terms of ability he can go to the top, he can be world class.

    Wtf can’t believe nobody has posted this.

    Can he be nominated again next year? Some ridiculous names in there but he could challenge for the next one IMO.

    Probably has to be Sancho this year. Fati also looks terrifying but Sancho has been doing it for a while now.

    Sancho, Davies, Tonali and Haaland would be my favourites for the honour. Possibly Haaland overall for me. But a great list to be on with some players we should still be speaking about in 10 years time.

    It’ll be Sancho or Haaland who win in. But nice to see Saka recognised.

    Think it's actually gonna be Davies, but Haaland and Sancho with a shout.

    With goalscorer/attacker bias I would bet on Haaland/Sancho over Davies

    Davies and Haaland have come out of nowhere and set the world alright but...

    Sancho has been one of the best players in the bundesliga for not one, but two seasons. He probably makes the Ballon d’Or longlist let alone the golden boy, this award should be a formality for him.

    Maybe it's down to seeing Jack and Rooney crumble before our eyes and having happening to Kane, but I feel English attack minded players have a short life span at the very top.

    Maybe its down to it being a very physical league with **** refs where some young guys are overplayed?

    You can say that Wilshere and Rooney should've taken better care of their bodies, but that only goes so far...

    I think it happens with every talent that get overexposed as teenagers. Wilshere, Rooney, Fabregas, Ramsey, Diaby, Walcott, Chamberlain and even Özil. All of them started playing against grown men at the highest level from a young age. Either injuries ruin their careers or they burn out before they are even 30. Only freaks of nature like Cristiano and Messi have avoided the same fate.

    Insane how Wolves get the next up and coming Portuguese superstar. The guy was setting records in Porto at 17 and now he's at Wolves of all places. Mendes really doing his work for them.

    It's Auba and Laca's Nickname for him. Although technically they say it in French so it should be "Petit Piment" :lol:

    Think he needs the Chelsea treatment where he gets loaned out until he's like 24/25 and then brought into the team.

    Davies for me. Came out of nowhere and destroyed top football. Top it off with the treble. Haaland second.

    Elite player.

    Sancho had 17 goals 17 assists in 32 league apps last season, the season before that 12 goals and 17 assists. World class numbers.

    Numbers wise it absolutely makes sense. Have to be honest and say I have only seen Sancho play a handful of times. Each time I saw him he didn’t stand out. I probably got the wrong sample here.

    Yeah doesn’t seem to stand out much whenever I watch him too. Bundesliga is a funny league man.
