  • If Trent Arnold does not win this then it got to be saka!!!
    Great job young gunna

  • Saka is obviously highly rated, sad he’s still dithering on his SE invitation card.

    Interesting to see 2 Nigerian bloods in a shortlist of 5 for PFA Young Player of the Season award. But Southgate keeps poaching everything poachable, cap-tie and then freeze them out – with Lampard and now Arteta, his henchmen. Spain doesn’t often do that to spectacular African players in the La Liga. Why England?

    Hopefully, Saka wises up soon. We once romanced Lookman when he was the beautiful bride at Everton. Now, his value has dropped and he’s not so much that beautiful bride again. Saka, wise up while you’re still in the market!!

  • There was once one Dele Alli. Saka open your eyes wide.
