    He has a song, we have to keep him!

    As an aside whilst he's improving, I'd like to see him be a little more direct as there are times when that will be the better option than always looking to pass. Hopefully it will come as his confidence increases.

    On 27 May 2019, Sessegnon achieved the Guinness World Record for 'Fastest time to hit both football goal posts and crossbar', doing so in just 7.75 seconds.

    So his finishing is brick.

    Can you imagine if you needed a goal in the dying minutes of the game, and he did that!

    I feel like we've suffered years of Sess being injured / getting back / young / timid / injured / getting back / developing confidence and understanding... so would be awful to sell him now

    We've spent the time and money on this guy, now we should back him



    Similar to Foyth et al, if you are willing to spend 3 years training and nurturing and hoping and fixing and explaining and coaching and improving... don't then sell.

    21 years of age, think he is going to be a top player as he gets older.

    Sess comes in, takes a few games to get set, then becomes really good, then gets injured. and the circle continues.

    But have to say he was quality on Thurs vs Arsenal. One of the things that struck me as tucked Saka into bed and read him a story was he stayed strong, wasn't dominated in the strength battle. Just needs to continue that now.

    Also anyone else notice:

    1. He stays so insanely wide - clearly instructed by Conte to make the pitch wide but he's literally on the touchline constantly
    2. Several games in a row he's been found as he cuts in behind, pulled the ball back to Son. Class move and couldn't belive Son didn't score vs Burnley with that

    Both against Arsenal and Liverpool he's come up against very good players, perhaps not in their very best form, but still. His defending has definitely improved quite a lot. Think there was a pretty big gap in defensive ability between him and Reguilon earlier in the season, not so much now.

    Definitely sticks wide, quite clearly but instruction and a clear contrast to our right hand side. Obviously fits well with Son's strengths coming inside and Davies mixing things up between overlapping and underlapping runs.

    If we sign another LWB this summer it should be someone that thrives in a similar, stick wide, role.

    Definitely also finding those runs and spaces. Very good to see. Still a bit conservative perhaps on when he tries to make things happen, but I'm fine with that for now at least.

    Just hope these frequent injuries become a thing of the past soon enough.
