      Well let's run through them.

      Doku - 3 goals 9 assists
      Grealish - 3 goals 1 assist
      Martinelli - 6 goals 4 assists
      Trossard - 12 goals 1 assist
      Diaz - 8 goals 5 assists
      Gakpo - 8 goals 5 assists
      Diaby - 6 goals 8 assists
      Son - 17 goals 10 assists
      Mudryk - 5 goals 2 assists
      Barnes - 5 goals 3 assists
      Gordon - 11 goals 10 assists
      Rashford - 7 goals 2 assists
      Garnacho - 7 goals 4 assists
      Anthony - 1 goal 1 assist
      Kulusevski - 8 goals 3 assists

      Even someone like Kudus who everyone is harping on about the next Rivaldo or something, 8 goals 6 assists. Neto is one we all love to watch because of how exciting he is, but go see what his goals/assists is like.

      It's taken someone like Saka 4-5 years and half a dozen penalties to finally reach good numbers, it's taken Bowen the same amount of time but without the pens.

      Son is the only 1 on that list that has been doing it season in season out.

      Very very few wingers in world football will get 20+ goals or 30+ goals/assists a season, season in season out. Ronaldinho rarely did it, Figo rarely did it, Robben & Ribery never did it, Ljungberg never did it, Cameronesi never did it, Di Maria never did it (certainly not for Madrid or Utd anyway) Giggs never did it. The list goes on.

      Indeed.

      I always laugh when folk say gapko and Diaz are crap. Compared to majority of wingers the stats are very good.

      And dare I say it, will probably get better. Especially since both are enjoying cracking summers with Thier countries.

      It’s because most of them are trying to compare to Mo and Mane who scored a lot more

      Cheeky bid in for Son, if Diaz fucks off to Barca?

      Ehhh nah, maybe a few years ago if he were on the right side of 30 but he himself doesn't really seem bothered to test himself at a top club so I say........let him be!

      Only winger I really want is Bakayoko. Ticks all the boxes for me. Age, Price, Profile, skillset, plus it's a small pool out there for top RW talents.

      Cody has been good, for sure, wouldn’t say brilliant but not average either

      In saying that, we’ve seen him for a whole season and he shouldn’t be a first 11 player week in and week out but as a lot said last season. We should keep him for rotation and coming in for injuries

      We have far bigger issues than Cody which is a non issue

      We've seen him for a whole season and a half under a previous manager who tried to play him in a position he hadn't played before and wasn't his natural game. It took Gini a a season before he got the hang of playing a different role to what he was used to aswell.

      He's clearly more comfortable and effective playing off the left and not when he's got his back to goal up against 2 defenders.

      The complexion has changed now so don't be too surprised if you end up eating your words.

      I just don't get the Cody hate. I really don't. Kids been really good for us over all, especially when you factor in he has almost always been forced to play in the middle of a front 3 or in the midfield. Cody looks to excel beat when he's out wide. That's where he played before and that's where he's killing it this tournament.

      Love his attitude and it's why he was my pick for player kit last season. Can't wait to watch him this season.

      As for Diaz, meh 😆

      Southgate playing a final again is a hold-up. A team playing like this deserves nothing.

      3 Pickford own goals would do me just fine. Beating by the squad would just be icing on the cake

      Hard to stand out in this Dutch side when they played as negatively as they did for so long, Koeman isn't really much better than the Martinez's or Southgate's of this world.

      But that's where the excuses for him end, that first half was dreadful. Pinched off the ball by Saka 2 or 3 times and never really helped Ake out. Much better second half, saw a lot more of the ball....won a few fouls in good areas, put in some good crosses, some nice dribbling and linking up of the play (just a shame Dumfries and Veerman are both incredibly sh*t).

      Overall a very good tournament still, if he can show more of his Euros/World Cup form then he'll be a handy weapon for us.
