    That shot was something I've seen executed only by Bobby Charlton on b&w footage from the 60's.

    I don't think he is raw anymore. That's what he is - great hard accurate shots. In my eyes he is set to become Raul's successor, although Ascensio lacks some of the technique the Real Madrid legend had.

    Very difficult to do what he does at that frequency. Only gifted people have this sort of accuracy in striking the ball from outside the box at this age. It's important to cultivate that confidence to make use of it, but at the same time the team and supporters see through it, because it is quite superficial. He's got this long, lean athlete body, very much suited for counters - see 3rd goal vs Barca this year or how he starts off the counter yesterday. ATM it's hard to pinpoint his exact strengths apart from that. His crossing isn't anywhere near to comparable to the top crossers in Europe like Marcelo, Eriksen, Pogba or even Azpi, and his decisions aren't always the best either. Numerous times this season he's fucked up like a rookie by not laying it off to a better positioned teammate. The best comparison I can think of right now is Gerrard if you imagine him as a dynamic winger as opposed to a central role. And at this rate within 2 seasons he'll defo be a more accomplished player than Stevie ever was

    You just named all the reasons why Zidane doesn't feature Asensio regularly in the lineup. He is crowd-pleaser, no doubt, but he fucks up the game plan when it's not about counter attacks.

    Their biggest forum is probably on BigSoccer, but even that's tiny compared to this place and that's saying something because even this forum is pretty small.

    Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse

    @Beast started a Real Madrid forum if I am not wrong. He stopped visiting here after he got busy with maintaining that forum

    Yep agreed. But I have no qualms with barcaforum being small relatively. Too much crowd sucks anyway. But weird RM has no mainstream forum when every big club has one.

    Biggest Real Madrid forum I've found awhile ago.

    https://fororealmadrid.com/index.php...f27eeebbe3363a

    But it's a spanish forum but still the biggest one I've come across in general when it comes to Real.

    *Bump*

    I'm going to bump this thread every two months for the rest of this guy's career.

    Since my last thread bump (back in October), the player who gets compared to Dembouz and Mbappe and was hailed as the new Cristiano/Raul has done very little including NOT scoring any long range goals.

    Dembele hasn't really been doing anything either though.

    Yall so quick to beat this guy. He is gaining experience, it is normal at this stage for players to figure out their skillset and improve their weaknesses, and Asensios is passing which is visibly improving.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    What happened to him? Seems he didn't enjoy his brief stint as biggest Spanish talent.

    Nothing really happened. Just a while now since he scored a stunner. As soon as he hits one he is back to being the best talent in the world. That’s how it works for these long shot merchants. Reminds me a lot of James, actually.
