All this patronising crap that Neville and co are now coming out with calling him ‘loveable’ etc is all vomit inducing. It’s so weird.

Hope he tells them all privately to **** off

Keane put actual respect on his name tbf, then that **** Neville reduced him to a big teddy bear all over again.

There's a video of him playing golf for the first time, and hitting an amazing shot too.

Then he falls over a bag and all the comments are like "awww look at this loveable kid", our guy is cursed to be babied forever ffs 😅

I have to say; it is a little racist the British press and public’s treatment of him. Reading other clubs fan sites they all were asking Saka to be dropped and claiming he was the problem prior to the goal. But even before his tournament saving wonderstrike he was by far England’s best attacker. Foden and Kane have been terrible but they don’t get the vitriol Jude and Saka get.

Saka’s problem is entirely perception. People think he can’t dribble because it doesn’t conform to what they think dribbling should look like.

The boy is 🔥

Exactly, he doesn't have flair or ego, which have nothing to do with how good a footballer you are. It's just popularity contest stuff.

Saka absolutely craps over 98% of wingers in world football and I'd argue he is better than the other 2% too.

The only reason Palmer doesn't get the same treatment Saka does is because most people don't know he's bi-racial and he just looks like a white guy to them.

The press goes after the younger guys Saka and Jude way harder than Foden and Kane who have been worse. Plus Jude won a match in group stage and in the first knockout round with his strikes. Saka won them the last match. Foden has done absolutely nothing positive

It’s nice seeing these comments, but every time he has a slightly negative game or run of games you’ll get a load of negative ****e here and everywhere else. He’s held to a standard few others are in terms of numbers + consistency in quality and reliability in possession. He seemingly has to shut ****** up again and again and again in a way no one else does.

It’s time quite a number of people stfu

Yeah, I agree but I could see this happening with certain elements over the last couple of years. It's definitely racism. Even before Jude really exploded in the last couple of seasons, when Saka was very clearly the best performing and most important England player, it felt to me that there were people who were uncomfortable with a black player holding that position and they were trying to manufacture PR for Foden to usurp him.

It's inarguable statistically that Saka has been England's best player since the last Euros but you have certain people who have done everything possible to try to minimize him while promoting the likes of Foden and Kane and shielding them from criticism. Nobody even talks about Kane putting that penalty into orbit to knock us out of the last World Cup. Why is that? We've had to hear all about Saka missing as a teenager for 3 years.

People also forget that it was Saka that won that penalty against France. Kane then proceeded to send it to space, No one ever mentions it

Arsenal Quotes

One of the things I discovered in Japan was from watching sumo wrestling. At the end you can never tell who has won the fight, and who has lost, because they do not show their emotion because it could embarrass the loser. It is unbelievable. That is why I try to teach my team politeness. It is only here in England that everybody pokes their tongue out when they win.
