Bukayo Saka (7)

I think we need to play him at LB v Villarreal if Tierney can’t play. We need an attacking left footed option and we can’t die wondering. Saka at LB and Pepe, Ode and ESR behind Auba. Xhaka and Partey back together in midfield

Sounds like a good idea mate but Arteta won’t do it

His dad is a Newcastle fan. I learned that today from the commentary. :rofl:

Looked fucking knackered from the first minute. Lad burning out fast. Soon the constant injuries will come, we know the story.

Freddie made a great point on BT. He said - These young players should not be a first pick in the team. They should play 4 games then rest and learn by watching the next few. Thats what City done with Foden.

Yeah as much as you wanna put these guys in the same category as Mount and Foden there a long way off yet.
@SRCJJ rightly points out how much development is needed before this lads at his true potential.

Just not being managed well with a guy and a club with no plan except self-preservation.

His development sidelined for Arteta’s job security.

Say what you will about Freddie, he’d have managed him better.

Mostly agree but I’d give him some credit for his improvement as a player tbh.
Obviously too much over reliance on him though. That’s a bad reflection on the assembled squad and some of the players as well.

Yep, here we go with another Rosicky, Diaby, Van Persie, Wilshere etc (funny all of those players were in the same team).

Tierney looks to be going that route as well.

I think there is more correlation than causation to that.

Saka was always going to develop as he trains more, plays more games.

I don’t think Arteta’s done anything special other than play him more.

Well that in it’s self is worthy of some recognition.
Got an England cap or two from that. It’s probably now that the next step of his development is needed that the right man is key. Also the club need some serious changes or he’s not here for long.
