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.

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.

    • I wonder what would have happened if England had walked off last night? Would have put the FA in a bit of a pickle   Non-league Padiham FC fined for leaving pitch in protest at racist abuse   • Club fined £165 after goalkeeper taunted by fans of Congleton
      • FA-convened panel fined Congleton £160 for alleged abuse   A team who left the pitch in protest at racist abuse have been fined by an independent panel convened by the Football Association for taking a stand on behalf of their player. Padiham FC of the North West Counties Football League walked off during a match against Congleton Town last October in response to racist insults from members of the crowd directed at Padiham’s goalkeeper, the former Burnley youth player Tony Aghayere. The matter was initially dealt with by the Lancashire and Cheshire Football Associations, before being handed on to an independent regulatory commission convened under FA rules.   Both clubs were charged under FA rule E20, which relates to a club’s responsibility to control players, officials and spectators. Padiham were fined £165 for abandoning the match. Congleton, whose spectators were apparently responsible for the alleged racist abuse, were fined £160. The incident was brought to wider notice this week by Padiham’s chairman, Shaun Astin, who linked the club’s fine to recent high-profile cases of racist abuse. Astin tweeted: “I am a chairman of a non-league club. We decided to take our players off in a game, because our goalkeeper was being racially abused. We were fined £165, the offending club were fined £160. Where is the justice there.” The Burnley Express also reported comments from Padiham’s then co‑manager Liam Smith, who said he was “flabbergasted” by the “spineless” decision to impose a fine for leaving the pitch in those circumstances. “I was alerted to the fact that Tony had been receiving some abuse and I immediately said to the linesman that I wanted to speak to the referee as soon as possible,” Smith is quoted as saying. “I told him that one of our players had been racially abused and that I would be taking the players off the pitch.   “We wanted to present a united front, so all the players were together in walking off the pitch. I don’t regret my actions one bit; I’d do it again tomorrow and I’d encourage anyone else who finds themselves in that position, God forbid, to do the same.   “I want to say thanks to Congleton Town and their players. When they realised why we were coming off the pitch they understood and spoke to me about it all afterwards and the club reported it to the police. They showed their class.” At the time Congleton confirmed they had reported the matter to the police and said: “The club takes this matter very seriously and is committed to working with the league on this matter.”   https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/apr/10/padliham-congleton-non-league-fined-leaving-pitch-racist-abuse-fans
    • Barney Ronay had an excellent piece yesterday that touches on a few things in this post.   The Orwell quote he uses is pretty apt: “There is almost no kind of outrage,” George Orwell wrote in his Notes on Nationalism, “which does not change its moral colour when it is committed by ‘our’ side.”   https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/oct/14/england-racism-euro-qualifiers-barney-ronay
