if it were that fucking obvious, people wouldn't spend their time asking "do you mean this saturday or the one after", would they?

I'd be more likely to use next saturday nearer the beginning of the week, though (or on a saturday).

on saturday = this saturday = next saturday

a week on saturday is clear.
Shock.

4th - This Saturday

11th - Saturday week

The "next" is too ambiguous.
