**** what the tabloids say, they’re owned by the ****ing elite and intend to cause divisions within society with their fracturing and dividing headlines. NPCs listen and react to that.

Bukayo Saka has been England’s ****ing ROCK and been key to us getting to the final of the Euros.

I really hope that he can bury one in the final and be the main man in England lifting the trophy but I guess time will tell.

I like system Gareth Southgate is playing is making out with Saka, even at wing back , it is still basically ends with two right sided forwards, with PALMER . Yesterday, both were on the same flank for England's winner. Saka was brilliant.

Does he move into the world-class bracket if England win? He’s easily been the best player for England.

Not yet in my opinion.

He is showing signs that he is about to explode though, and I mean become as devastating as Salah was at his peak.

When Saka moves into that zone, it wont be a debate anymore.

I will love it and I think I deserve.

All the other attackers look average outside of their clubs system/league but Saka remains his consistent self. Not surprised he has racked up all those motm awards.

World class is subjective I guess but I don't see a side in football that he doesn't get into.

Even in this England side where he's been shunted around to accommodate others he just performs every game.

He's brilliant in a really understated way. So I think it's very easy to underestimate just how good this guy is.

You'll see once he and other Arsenal players start to win some trophies at domestic and international level that the term 'world class' will fit more snugly on the likes of Saka and Ødegaard. The only impediment for them universally being recognized as such are those trophies.

I know it's not your argument but I've never got the need to win trophies to be WC .

Unless you're Messi who's probably in whatever the bracket above world class is, you're not going to win trophies on your own and on the other hand there are a lot of players who've won many trophies that aren't all that great individually.

Someone like Harry Kane has been a WC striker for the past 6-7 years, the lack of trophies don't change that for me because i'm judging the individual.

Rightly or wrongly, perception is influenced by trophies; unless Saka hits like 40 G/A, he ain't going to be considered WC unless he wins stuff. I don't agree with it but that's generally how it is. RE: Kane, the lack of trophies will impact his legacy, that's just how it is. He would be seen in much higher regard with some domestic trophies + a CL. Look at how Madrid players are viewed due to their success in the CL.

Unfortunately this is true. It's precisely why Foden is viewed as a top player despite being fairly average when not in a Pep team.
 

Arsenal Quotes

A team can attack for too long. The most opportune time for scoring is immediately after repelling an attack, because opponents are then strung out in the wrong half of the field. All the men are expected to play to plan, but not so as to stifle individuality
