I don't understand the beef with Saka. All ours dive. He seems like a nice lad (and brilliant player) to me, apart from a perplexing  belief in God.


You understand it perfectly well, heís not our player, heís quite good, so we donít like him.

Fair enough. I don't think like that, but crack on!

If you can think of a better explanation then by all means the floor is yours. What else is it going to be?

I've got no problem with Saka.  I like Declan Rice and James Maddison too.

The only players I really tend to dislike are petulant players, blatant cheats and any that have specifically been disrespectful to Villa.

And any who play for Man Utd of course, but I assume that that goes without saying.

Lots of players tick those boxes but don't get the hate. He seems a totally innoffensive player to me. And one of England's genuine world class players for what it's worth.

Saka dives more than any player I've seen since Grealish. It used to annoy me when Joe did it because it would quite often stop good forward momentum. The move for the goal we scored against Forest with everybody touching it would probably have got to Grealish and stopped. Diving doubly annoys me when an opposition player does it, and that's doubled again when a player does it with the regularity that Saka does.

Another Saka fan here. He goes down a bit but it's the blatant cheating from the likes of Fernandes which I find more annoying.

Diving is blatant cheating. Saka's had some shockers, like this:

I remember him trying to get Mings sent off and I hold grudges.

Im in the camp that while I recognise & respect that Saka has a lot of talent, I don't like the fact that he is an intentionally diving little shit on a regular basis.

And I don't like cheats.

I think Saka is a fantastic player but he should cut out the diving. At least heís not a petulant twat like Fernandes. Heís a cheat and a complete arse to go with it.

He might have got away with that if he hadnít tried to gild the lily by sticking down his left leg to make sure.

He's on a hot streak, apparently. Now nominated for the PFA Premier League Fans Player of the Month!

You can vote for him above, if you are a fan.

There are 15 games left and Watkins wants to score in every one. He said it himself in an interview after the Sheffield Utd game.

It's 11 goals so far.

I think he'll end up with 21 to 22 Prem goals.
Premier League:
There are 12 games left and he's scored 14 goals.
I think he can make the target providing he scores a brace or hat trick.
I can see one in two for him so that's 6 goals and at brace or hat trick by my maths means he makes over 20+ goal threshold.
Watkins wants to score every game and if that happend a goal a game it would be 26 goals.
I think he'll be hard pushed to reach 25 this season
 
All Comps
Watkins also targeted 20 goals and one more today will take him over twenty for season all comps. That's likely to happen sooner rather than later and great effort by him
Think could be looking at 30+ for season.
