Bukayo Saka? Tell us in the comments section that the Gunner hasn’t impressed you, because for many of us, the 21-year-old can’t stop warming our hearts game after game this season. In Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace, the Arsenal winger scored a brace and assisted Martinelli for Arsenal’s first goal of the game.
Steve Nicol of ESPN described him as “flawless” after his “masterpiece” performance for Arsenal. “Saka, in particular, you’re talking about his age; the maturity of this kid is unbelievable,” he told ESPN. “Football, a lot of the time, is about decision-making. And that’s why we talk about maturity and experience: because experience and maturity means that you make better decisions.
“Well, this guy, he doesn’t make a mistake when it comes to a decision. He passes it at the right time, he dribbles with it at the right time, he’ll try and finish at the right time, he’s aware of what’s gone on around him.
“Really, to look and try and find a flaw, it would take less time than to tell you how good he is, because there doesn’t seem to be a flaw. That’s the kind of form this guy is in.”
There are those who point to the influence of Odegaard or the transformative effect of Zinchenko in driving Arsenal towards this most unlikely of triumphs but, make no mistake, Saka is the main man; their undisputed ‘Starboy’

Although almost every Arsenal player has been on another level this season, I don’t think you will disagree with me. Saka is not playing himself into being crowned the PL young player of the season; he is also on course to take home the Arsenal player of the season gong. In 28 league games this term, Saka now has 12 goals and 10 assists, making him the first player to reach double figures in goals and assists this term.
Saka deserves every single award he wins this season, and at his age he can only get better…

One of the most appealing aspects of this young man is his obvious intelligence combined with his humility which is rare for someone who commands such adulation.On the pitch,the World is his oyster as he has the pace, ball skills and finishing to become a great player.His awareness of his inverted right wing role is developing and his linkage with team mates has improved immensely this season.As a natural “left winger” he is adaptable and indeed he could probably be effective as a central striker.He has a great future ahead of him and surrounded by a number of wonderfully talented players, hopefully Arsenal FC will enable him to fulfil his ambitionsq.
Just amazing to watch him play, then you read about him off the pitch and it just makes it even better. Hoping his contract gets sorted out very soon and he’s a lifetime gunner.
As a fan attending since 1958 with countless heroes among our ex and modern players, I struggle to thinkof even ONE single player whom I admire more as a ahuman being than Bukayo Saka.
He represents everything that is good and wholesome about any modern player. He deserves every accolade he rightly gets and I HAVEN’T EVEN MENTIONED HIS PLAYING STARDUST!
A futur legend for sure….Give home what he wants hé deservs every penny….
Hale End is doing an incridible job!!!Saka ESR Balogun Nelson are saving the club 300 million dollars in the transfert market….If you add Martenelli who have been spoted somehow by our scouts you have a spine for t’en years to come who have cost nearly nothing…….This team if we keep it together has a bright futur of DOMINATION we dont want this year’s brillant performance to be a one off we want Arteta/Edu to build a legacy like the invencibles did
