Early days, but Ødegård looks like a poor man's Özil in his latter years right now.
Really like the look of him; smart, good movement off the all in attacking movements, technically gifted and with a real eye for a pass.
Really hoping we dont buy him. He's tidy like you said but we NEED someone like Buendia. A creator which can also play direct and dribble with speed.
He's a nice guy, feel like he really wants to stay here as well because he knows he doesn't have a future at Madrid. But we really need better if we are going to go back to the top.
Unless we can get him for only 10million...if thats the case then im all for him, but there is no chance of that.
Better in the second half, showed more personality.
Don't think we should buy him for the reported price though. Much rather develop ESR as the 10 and look to improve the midfield. Someone to complement Partey but can break to support ESR, Saka etc
I just saw his passion after the third goal. Seems like he really gets the club, so will take back what I said before
Could we play him as a wide playmaker? He may be suited better there than EsR... Hopefully Real don’t quote a silly price for him
Ödegaard is a better 10 than ESR. More creative, far better final pass, etc.Still need a bit of patience with him, but he's doing some good stuff albeit not absolutely spectacular stuff. Almost had an excellent assist, remember.
I understand the complaints about shifting ESR out wide, but generally think you can accommodate two players like Ødegaard and ESR. Players like that can play in different positions, they're young, this is not a great team, they need time.
See how Ødegaard does these next few months, he's nowhere near 100% of what he's capable of, if he shows a lot more then maybe think about keeping him, if not no harm done and maybe we look at someone else.
By the time he’s sharp and flying the season is over. A top club shouldn’t be loaning players like this.
It’s a harder job, but Arteta should be developing what we already have here.
Absolutely not. ESR has better vision, more pace, stronger, braver, quicker release, can use either foot, has better lungs, better defensive contribution, cognitively faster, better under pressure.Ødegaard is a better 10 than ESR. More creative, far better final pass, etc.
