Hercule Poirot of the scouting world
- May 10, 2009
Berbatov was better footballer than Haaland will ever be but everyone knows which player they will have in their team. Also Odegaard isn't better footballer, just because he can dribble better than Bruno doesn't make him better footballer.Odegard just came back form 8 months with jumpers knee. I looked at what he did at la real. And I saw what he did against Tottenham. Which suggest he is back. Comparing last season of Odegard and 17 season of Bruno, is a good comparison on the age difference. But your stats dosent cover movement and areas. Where those key passes are. Hell, even last game Odegard had a 12% higher pass accuracy than Bruno. Ok, I’ll change it to a much more complete footballer. But the attribute difference stands. We all love Bruno, but I think this guy is better! And we can fit them both. Why the hell is he at Arsenal? They have just started using him regularly, and they won 4 and drew 1 in their last 5 games.
If you didn’t see him last year before his knee injury, just enjoy the night watching his Tottenham game. And by the way. If scouting a player, people look at the attributes I mentioned earlier. We need to sign this guy, absolutely no doubt about it.
What movement and area? Is that off the ball movement? Without checking, i would be very surprised if Odegaard ended up more goal scoring chances.
If it's the movement to receive passes, then I don't think Odegaard averages more passes than Bruno.
I agree with your point, the attribute difference stands but it's not in Odegaard favor like you believe.
Now the passing accuracy, just like in any other argument, it doesn't matter. It's just a difference of 3-4 passes per game, when one player is creating chances at insane rate, it doesn't matter if he loses ball 3-4 times more than other player, especially when the player is rivalling best players in the league when it comes to productivity.
Edit: I'm done with this. Everyone is entitled to opinion and all that.
