I'd put Neto against Saka. For me they are the best of the bunch. I think Neto would win, but you have to bear in my mind he has been out injured for a year while Saka has been improving all the time.Perhaps--can't argue the goal stats, but Jesus played for ManCity, the most attacking side in the world arguably and Arsenal was a more attacking side...our system and defenders we're just not made to score many goals. Put any of those players in our system with our (slow) defenders/midfielders, working in isolation, let's see them disappear real quickly (see Jota, Diogo for example).
Talent for talent, formation and injuries aside, I think our four are pretty creative, talented players.
Raul (when healthy mentally and I think he will be this year) is better all around than Jesus; Jesus has quicker feet and maybe more clinical, but Raul has better hold up play, heading, and defending.
Neto is better than Martinelli, in my opinion. Quicker, more direct, and a better defender.
MGW and Saka--okay, Saka is better--quicker and better in-close ball skills. But MGW is more direct, let's see what he can do.
Podence versus Odegaard--Podence is much more creative and trickier player in the box; Odegaard more physical and has a good deadball delivery. But, in the box, I would take our Danny Podence all day.
Podence to me is one of the most overrated players we have ever had. There is a lot of talent there and yeah he is great around the box and tricky and all that, but not very good in the first two thirds of the field and for all his trickery, more often than not he tries to overcomplicate things, which is a shame. Martinelli is more than decent. 6 goals last year is about the same as Podence's career best at Olympiakos.
MGW or Odegaard i think Odegaard wins. Or do you guys think he's as good now?
Raul vs Jesus...Raul pre head injury would win for me. Raul post head injury doesn't come close.
