Saka’s penalty miss could work in Arsenal’s favour

Saka’s Penalty Miss Might Make Him Better by AI

 

Oh, Bukayo Saka, you sweet summer child. Overnight, one of the most talented youngster and a lynchpin of our team, has become a darling of the nation.

 

Brave, dynamic and impactful performances for a stacked England at the just concluded Euros were making him out as a potential star in the making. Along with Gianluigi Donnaruma and Mikel Damsgaard, he was in the conversation for best youngster at the Euros.

 

And then came the penalty miss—a penalty which he was not supposed to take in the first place. Saka is a great young man who takes responsibility for his club and country despite his youth. The penalty miss will haunt him. He will feel that he has let his team down. And that’s where the good news begins for Arsenal.

 

If there was any part of Saka’s game you would say needs huge improvement, it is his finishing. He is not yet a killer in front of goal. And it was something he always needed to work on. However, with the burden of his miss on him, he is likely going to work on it with purpose and a sense of mission.

 

You may expect an improved finisher for Arsenal next season, a boy burdened with purpose, a player exorcising his demons with goals after goals.

 

Angry Saka will be scary, but not for us.

    He’d likely be more motivated to work harder. I wish he can learn from Mahrez

    1. speedy says:

      seems you are a big fan of mahrez. I too like his unpredictability he is more like sanchez though not as versatile.

      1. gotanidea says:

        Mahrez has won EPL with Leicester, been trained by great coaches at Man VCity and is a master of fake shots. Saka will be a perfect RW if he can do Mahrez’s tricks in the games

    it may be demoralising but will motivate him to try and work harder…

    Saka should have chosen to play for Nigeria instead….

    Hudson Adoi have swooped Nationality…

    Hopefully Nketiah, Balogun, Willock and etc.. will do so too

    A terrific emotional piece Al but what EVIDENCE have you that lovely Saka – and on that word I of course much agree, as he is a DIAMOND both on and off the pitch- is going to rapidly improve his present “nothing special” finishing?

    You have a mesmeric way with words and as a pro writer myself I congratulate you on that.

    But you have a habit of letting your enthusiasm run away with your more logical thinking. Enthusiasm is a great gift to have but not at the expense of more detailed logical thought first!

    ESR signs new long arsenal contract..

    He will be wearing the no. 10 shirt…

      This has made my day, month, year 😊

  5. kev says:

    As brought to you several weeks ago, Smith-Rowe has signed a new contract. Brought you this info when they said he could go to Villa and what not. Its been announced. Done deal!!!

    Also as brought to you weeks ago, Onana to Lyon was never a done deal

    Aouar to Liverpool will not happen. It is between Arsenal and Spurs. Their interest may be slight but he’s not the one they really want to replace Wijnaldum.

    1. Sue says:

      Cheers Kev – keep ’em coming 👍

      1. kev says:

        Thanks, lets goooooo

        1. Chuxzzy1 says:

          👍🏽

    2. Andy says:

      @ Kev: You’ve been right so far. Thanks. Any info on Max Aarons?

      1. kev says:

        Currently the 1st choice to replace Bellerin should he leave which I personally believe he will

    3. gotanidea says:

      Kudos to your efforts, kev

      Smith-Rowe’s new shirt number means Aouar’s or Maddison’s signing possibility is very slim. Which is good because we should use the transfer budget to buy a player type we don’t have

      Hopefully we can upgrade the CF position before the transfer window shuts, because we won’t survive without a dominant CF like Benzema, Kane, Morata or Lukaku

      1. kev says:

        I don’t think his shirt no. affects either. We have already bid for Aouar and Maddison is also of interest. Imo we will sign Aouar but I’m unsure about Maddison. Personal terms aren’t an issue with him but I wonder how much Leicester will demand

  7. jon fox says:

    Breaking news: ESR has just signed a new longterm contract and will wear Number Ten. YEEEES!!

    2. kev says:

  8. Twig says:

    He’s young and still has the opportunity to be the best penalty taker the world has ever seen 😎

    1. Sue says:

      Nice one, Twig 🙂

    Agboola, you’ve sounded in this your article posting on Saka’s penalty miss for England as if your’re on my side.

    For, I did post a comment on JA on this subject a day after the Euro 2020 has ended. And I pointed it out in that my comment that Saka is yet to arrive there for club and country. But he’s a great football player that he now thinks ahead of his time he has. This came about for him in the media and from the football pundits who have overly hyped him which could has turned his head making him think he has arrived there as a world class whereas he hasn’t in my own view.

    But many who responded to my comment went on to whitewashed me inside out in their responses to my comment. With some Nigerian Yoruba tribe Arsenal fans allowing emotions to get the better of them as they called for my head for betraying the Yoruba people race affinity of which Saka by his birth by a Nigerian parents belong to.

    But I made my critics to understand that I like Saka very much as they like him. And I support him as wholeheartedly. More so, for his being my club – Arsenal player.

    But I will not succumb to any emotional pressures to allow making me to become a tribal bigot to not point out the true when I see it or knowit. But instead start telling lies to make people happy but falsely.

    Had Saka scored that pen he missed for England, the 3Lions would have progressed to the sudden death shoot outs phase of the match. Which at the end of it will see one of England or Italy lift the Cup. And it could be England that will lift it if Saka has given them the chance to reach the sudden death.. What I mean is, England might have lifted the Cup if the match had reached the suddenl death. And if England had reached it, Saka would not have been singled out for trolliung for his miss that was much more than Rashford and Sancho were trolled for their own misses. For, Saka’s miss stopped England suddenly and painfully stopped England from continuing in the match to try their luck to see if they’ll lift the Cup.

    Yes, Saka is not a politic goals scorer, but a general versatile prayer who does score occasionally for Arsenal. And he plays very well for the team.

    But I will encourage him to not allow his missing for England see him downtrodden. But bracing up to rediscovered his game playing skills and tecnics improving drastically on them when next season’s campaign has begun. So that he will as soon as possible arrived to his dreamed world class destination point as he continues to journey towards his arriving there.

    1. Sue says:

      Samuel, I’m sorry you felt ‘whitewashed inside out.’ Please accept my apology for my comment. I did respond to you again with an explanation – although you may not have seen it as it vanished along with another of your comments.
