    Perhaps next time you should get your basics cleared up before you decide to use your knowledge to declare your 2 goals a season player as some rare talent.

    What point are you trying to make here cause the likes of Daniel Jame, inaki Williams and many others s
    with their mad acceleration don't still do what dembele does, it's never all about acceleration and you should know that if you've played the game

    Traore was literally a dribbling freak and it's not just about speed for him (he's got the combo of strength, pace, technique, feints, etc), I remember when he had 120 plus dribbles already around December (not even mid-season) in Barca B with over 70% accuracy, he literally just skips past players but doesn't know what to do afterward so is a walking reminder that it's not all about dribbles, cause he would've been a world-beater if he had the know-how of Pedro, Collado or even Trincao. This guy can literally skip past any player, and used to replicate Messi's kinda Getafe run of taking on 4 to 5 players on a regular even against the likes of Manchester, Chelsea, Arsenal, etc He even had 214 dribbles in 2021 for Wolves with 74.8% success rate (absurd stats) so he's in his own world and I give it to him when it comes to dribbles, but as I said, he's a walking reminder that Dribbling is not all there is to football

    Mate you are wasting your time.
    if someone hasn't understood by now, he will never understand.
    Hate blinds them.

    So sweet it would be when he puts pen to paper, and all the haters here realize that he will be starting week in week out in a Barca shirt for 5 more years!

    You probably haven't. Definitely haven't on any semi competitive level. You say that someone can become LaLiga top assister in half a season just by having good acceleration . There are many players in the top5 leagues much more athletically gifted than Dembele that can't do the same thing.

    The reason Ferran can't do the same is because no defender bites for his moves and he can't shake them off, like we saw yesterday where Getafe defenders didn't move an inch at his feints.
