Just one criteria buddy. Saka has him beat in numerous departments. Many players are easier on the eye than Saka tbf like Olise for example who is not currently in the WC discussion.

Saka is a struggle baller tumbling around the place and smashing in deflections, but he gets it done.

???? Clear? Or better? Let’s not start infighting

I really don’t want this Foden debate in this thread because they’ll start saying I hate Saka again. Let’s talk about non penalty goals and hattricks though or how they finally appear to be on par now they’re both getting equally consistent game time. *runs away*

Jokes aside I’ll die on the Foden hill though. I’ll always pick the player with the higher technical ceiling because they’re the one who can give you that special moment that other players simply can’t pull off. Foden’s first touch and close control is generational tbh, up there with anyone in football right now. When Saka was clearing him for production (and minutes) it had to be Saka but now I’d go with Foden. Especially as the latter doesn’t have the same kind of monopoly on set pieces.

All depends on what your team needs though really but I find it funny that playing for City is always used against him. Pep has pretty much stalled Foden’s career up until this season and going from first academy prospect to an established first team player at a club like city should be something used to praise a player, not the other way around.

This isn’t a Iheanacho situation lol.

Genuine question - did you ever think Robben was easy on the eye? Phenomenal footballer obvs but I never found him enjoyable to watch. Couldn’t tell if it was sth about his technique or just that he was an ugly bald tw@ though…

Mahrez was similar in terms of what he did but he was brilliant to watch. Guess he was a handsome North African brudda though so maybe it is just my unconscious biases I don’t care

Robben ran like there was something wrong with him and looked like some kind of gremlin.

But the medium pace Robben dribble with your hands up like some kind of dinosaur had the streets in a chokehold. And those curlers? Those sweet sweet curlers. 😍

Both are far more aesthetically pleasing on the ball than Saka easily.

I think he can surpass them, but whenever I think of Saka I think about him rolling around on the floor if I’m honest.

People will take what I said as a slight but I don’t care, my intentions aren’t malicious I intended to praise Saka today.

Feel like Uncle Macho is being duplicitous to please the masses again.

I’d be over the moon if Saka can get to prime Mahrez level, but Robben? Arjen Robben??

Disclaimer: happy to be proven wrong, don’t hate him, don’t hate Arsenal etc.

Ah yeah that was it, it was the hands 😂

And the way he kept dangling his leg like it needed to be amputated.

What a player though damn.

Saka will surpass mahrez very soon. His stats for wide forward are elite. His chance creation is elite. I think this season alone saka will surpass mahrez best season which was at Leicester

I think we’ll see the real Saka under our next manager (assuming he’s not worse than Mikel)

Somebody who’s going to come in and make their job getting the best out of Saka, none of this occupying 2-4 defenders out wide on the right nonsense.

That + the development of his shot creating (this is one area where the likes of Salah, Son and Vini jr have him beat) over the next few years will dictate whether he becomes a genuine super star or ‘just’ a world class winger.

You just know if Wenger was still mansger here we’d be a season or two away from Saka randomly putting in a 30 goal season :lol:

yeah he’ll surpass his output no doubt but Mahrez was technically something else. Massively underrated player imo which is wild considering.

I think what prime Mahrez had was the ability to create his own shot and maintain good accuracy as well. He also found a way to be dangerous enough going on the outside that defenders couldn’t just wait for him inside like they do with Saka sometimes. One of the most talented wingers I’ve seen another one whose prime was ruined by Pep rotation imo.

Saka has him beat in pretty much everything else but the stuff above is how you win trophies and the top individual honours.

Mahrez touch and swivels were thing of a beauty. Yeah just a very elegant player. But at their peak saka will be better player

Think only him and Zidane have entire YouTube comps related to their first touch. :lol:

Pep is a bit of a legacy killer tbh, will get you trophies but not the respect of the streets and we all know what’s more important.

Not surprised
I don’t enjoy watching Saka play, I don’t know what it is, too mechanical maybe? A system player? I think he lacks some individuality.

Sakas right foot has gotten better and he scored some nice goals with it. I do think he will go more to the outside. But yeah right now when he goes right it’s bit of Martinelli style hit and hope

It hurt that you’d say sth like this as a fan of the club that had Dennis Bergkamp but then I remembered you’re 15 so it’s calm
