I didn’t say this. I said his numbers are flattering considering he’s had plenty of games just like this. He could have easily gotten a return last night when he was ineffective.

Furthermore he’s not head and shoulders above Ødegaard, Rice and Saliba, so if Saka is a WC player then we’d have to consider Arsenal a WC team.
How many games did we watch of Cristiano playing **** and still scoring or assisting and getting all the credit?? That was basically the narrative on his career for the last 10 years. Especially for the national team. Plus Ronaldo was taking all the penalties and free kicks even when he sucked at free kicks lol.

His standout attributes lend themselves to a modern 8.

We really must sign an explosive, two footed wide player pronto.
Still you can't name 5 RWs in world football better than him. That's a testament to his quality. You're not finding an explosive two footed, sweg merchant with end product that matches Saka. This is reality and not a video game. The team needs a CF that actually scores and another dynamic midfielder to go to the next level.

The whole team was poor. Let’s see what he does in the return leg and judge him on the whole tie
Valid but if you want to say he's a legendary winger and put him in the same category as other world class attackers then 'whole team was poor' doesn't really wash.

Whole City team was poor when KDB came on with like 20 mins left, fresh from an injury against Newcastle and created two goals out of nothing. How many times have we complained this season about Liverpool getting 'undeserved' points for playing crap but having Salah bail them out?

Don't get at me for comparing him to those players either because I don't. I'm just enjoying his development and optimistic he gets there. It's you lot who are eager to place him there already.

Kdb has 10 years on saka. How many great 22 year olds has done more than great 32 year olds? If you wanna compare him to other great players only 2 way to do it. Wait until their careers are over and compare or compare at same age

No instead you all but say he's better than Haaland Vini Cristiano and pretty much every other player under the sun.

At least Mitch says his dumb sh*t with chest, you put your opinions out then hide behind semantics.
Please quote when I said he was better than those guys lol. I said he was a better all around footballer than Halaand which is pretty factual. Halaand is only a better goalscorer. I was not the one posting things comparing his numbers to Bale, Ronaldo or Vini. I already said multiple times that Vini is more talented. It's pretty obvious to see. Faster, more agile, more technically gifted and creative. It's actually amazing that Saka is in that category just shows you how intelligent he is as a footballer. But keep going with your jaded narratives. Y'all need to see a damn therapist at this point

Comparing Saka to players like Salah, Vini is just plain stupid and it totally undermines Saka.

Boy is not WC yet.
But was Salah even close to Saka's level at 22? The agenda merchants on here want to see Saka fail so bad that they use unreasonable metrics to judge him 😂

Yeah, didn’t do nothing last night as I expected.
He was fine. Didn't do anything, didn't do much wrong either, just didn't have anything to work with.

If you give the conductor of the London symphony three accordion players, two banjos, and a cactus to wave around instead of a baton, it's not going to come out sounding like Beethoven. He's not bad at classical music, he just had nothing to work with. That's Saka. He just had nothing to work with last night.

One again provide the evidence of me lusting over Saka 😂. I just see through the BS of many of the unhinged posters on here who know nothing about football but pretend to be experts. Supporting a youth player who shows good character and talent and is from my home country now makes me a pervert?

It is okay if he is not world class. A lot of great players aren't either. Doesn't make them any less of a player.

Great players are well...great too.

Bigger question is Saka great or just good? The greats tend to show up in big games.
We've literally seen Saka show up in many so called big games so it's a dumb narrative. Many people said Messi wasn't clutch and couldn't win without Xavi or Iniesta for years. Messi even missed a big penalty in the Copa America. But he still had so many big moments for Barcelona and Argentina throughout his career.
