Sadio Mane

Recommended Posts

Just heard on the radio we've paid £30 million to Southampton. My initial reaction was oh fuck off we've had our pants pulled down again. Carroll, Benteke, Downing, Lallana and now Mane. All massively overpriced. All bought from other premier league clubs. All varying degrees of shite. We never learn do we? I really hope I'm wrong. I'm not saying Mane is shite but I just think for that sort of money surely there is better value out there away from the premier league??

Carrol was years ago, Benteke will soon be up at Celtic, Downing was just like a mutant sheep who needed to be destroyed, Lallana is the nivea lord and Mane will be the one we've been looking for all this time. What could possibly go wrong Dick?

Away from the Premier League? What is this heresy, Mr Sack? Are you trying to get this website shut down?

Aside from the supplying Southampton's superior scouts with endless amounts of transfer funds aspect, actually really think we need a player like Mane - pace, finishing, control and vision.

 

Downside, it sounds like he's a bit of a tit.

Whenever we're interested in a player I ask myself 3 questions: Is he black? Is he 6 ft 2? Is he a defensive midfielder?

 

If the player meets 2 out of the 3 criteria, then I'm all in.

Can't remember the last time I got excited about a Liverpool signing. It's like a nan's Christmas present, usually something they got from the market called 'Space Wars' which the stall holder assured her was genuine. You just give her a kiss on the cheek, say 'thanks nan' then go and look at pictures of decent toys in the catalogue. This is when you're 18.

Same. Underwhelming Mark E signing, from Southampton, even in the new reality of transfer fees seems too much money for this level of player.

 

However, he has the attributes we lack in a position we needed to improve and could add a new dimension to us, which are, crushingly saddeningly, giant strides forward on recent years.

 

Throw in the doubts about his consistency and we've only taken a double bogey on this hole.

 

Good jawb, Liverpool Reds. Hoo-ha.

Paying £30m for Mane is a mistake, in my opinion.

 

The thing we must need is a reliable 20 goal striker. Goals change games and if we go 1-0 up most teams are still too terrified to attack us. I think Sturridge is the best striker in the country not named Sergio, but depending on his fitness has already cost one manager his job.

 

Our budget should have been spent on a striker, or at least a Midfeld general, instead of picking up another small attacking midfielder, who is not better than either Firmino or Coutinho.

If Klopp wants him then im all in.

 

If he ever did a Low and sniffed his own balls on the touchline I reckon id break my tv.

I'm a bit underwhelmed by this signing. I think for £30m you should buy a better player from the continent e.g., Mkhitaryan, Draxler, etc. This would also end our interest in Goetze, which I'm not too psyched about. On the flip side, he's not a bad player.. If he could play like he did against us, when he destroyed Sakho in that 3-2 win consistently, then people would forget about his transfer fee.

Should help us against the few teams in the league that leave space to exploit. Unfortunately 90% of teams dont do that against us.

    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
    • Also, I don't know if there are many finer allegories for the human condition than Seamus Coleman's seemingly eternal struggle to keep his tongue in his mouth.  Despite the constant effort he's always destined to fail, poor lad.
