Ansu Fati (the black "I don't want to compare him w/ Messi but..." kid)

so this 16 year old Bissau-Guinean (yeah this is the right spelling bitch) set the Camp Nou alight yesterday and the commentators tried their best to not compare him with the young Messi while actually sort of doing so

might well be the most exciting African youngster since Sammy Adepoju.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

He looked really good in some actions and showed his age/inexperience in some others. Many young kids have looked good in their first few appearances before fading away namely Giovani, Bojan, Munir, Sandro Ramirez etc.

He caught peeps eyes already 2 weeks ago by scoring against Osasuna, such a natural talent. But woh his performance vs Valencia was step up lol, not only start, but basically be clinical as heck in such short time, not only the goal but was genuine threat dribbling with really good assist.


Lets see if he can keep this up, probably not since he is 16, but still, looks like a gem. And yeah the Messi comparison will be forced, and be helped, read articles of it took Messi 13 games for his first 2 goals, while this kid 1 game and half

He already looked like a pretty good left winger who can beat experienced defenders with his acceleration and skills, even though his link up play leaves to be desired (but of course Barca's standards are very high there). His dive in the box also didn't look very natural but luckily he has plenty of experts in the squad to teach him this.

In terms of 16 year olds, I'm interested to see how that kid Karamako Dembele turns out, he looked legit destined talent since he was 13 years old lol. But he is in scotland, and is not scoring goals vs Valencia hehe.

Speaking of 16 year olds, Odegaard (once upon a time prodigy) has looked legit class this season for Sociedad and put on a masterclass against the Atletico midfield last night. Unfortunately Real Madrid still own him and he's just on loan at Sociedad.

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.
