Sadio Mane

Recommended Posts

I think it is an excellent signing ( if confirmed ) and a realistic price in today's market. We will be basically swapping him for Benteke & Allen money-wise & getting a good player for a position we desperately need over a donkey & a player the manager doesn't want.

 

I am happy to see us prioritise positions we are weak in for a change. The random purchases of guys who were 'available' but with no thought as to how they would fit in & improve us used to send me around the bend.

 

However if we do not get a quality left back , please ignore this post & I reserve the right to smuggle Moreno to Somalia hidden in a laundry basket in exchange for copious quantities of khat. Indeed I will have some of what Nightcat is smoking.

Can we shoehorn his name into the Richard Blackwood song?

 

 

 

Jurgen used to say "Go take on your man"

Jurgen used to say "Don't you rush that shot"

Jurgen used to say "Take it in your stride"

And Jurgen used to say "Scoring for your life"

 

Say my name, baby
(Ooh, we love you, Sadio, check you every day on Radio)
Who da Mane, baby, who da Mane (you da Mane)
Who da Mane (you da Mane)

Think I'm "excited" about this the same way people were "excited" about Benteke. As in deep down I think he's a bit shit and we've just wasted another 30M but hoping to fuck I'm wrong.

DD, I think the difference is that he actually fulfils a need in the squad whereas I can't remember too much excitement around Benteke as from the start most Reds fans could see he was never going to fit our game unless as a £32.5m Ricky Lambert substitute.

Well the price is ridiculous. But i guess thats the rate for a midfielder in the prem who gets into double figures. I think the main thing that gets people somewhat upset is the fact that he's another Southampton player and it's another expensive signing from a PL side.

Had he played for Sevilla or Leverkusen, say, i dont think people would have thought twice about if it is a good signing or not.

 

He does fit the bill quite perfectly of what we need, left sided attacking midfielder with pace and scores a lot of goals, presses well and works hard. It really is a no brainer. However the fact its from Southampton again is probably a thorn in people's eyes.

It doesn't matter who it's from. £34m is is about £14m too much.

 

While people try and justify it by comparing it with the sterling/Benteke deals, they're among the worst deals in football history.

 

I hope he does well, obviously. But we've been robbed. Again.

 

Our scouts need sacked.

Thing is fees are going to go through the roof. Look at Hector the iriginal fee was 8-12ml we get involved and they want £24ml plus

Let's see how much other players are bought for this summer before judging the price.

 

Watford rejected £25m for Deeney.  I think you are going to see some crazy prices this summer.

34 million is too much. But i really dont see a realistic alternative. Who can we realistically get that as an attacking midfielder is likely to get us 10+ goals?

We dont seem to have the ability to bring in top players from Germany or Spain at the moment, not without CL football. Its not realistic for us to sign Draxler or Reus now, Gotze seems to have turned us down unless he has a change of heart.

I don't know, Mickey is 27 and in his last year of contract. 

 

He also had one shit season, one meh season and one good season at Dortmund.

If Klopp wants him then fine, but I don't think Mane is very consistent. Think this will be another waste of money along with Benteke, Carroll etc. but would be happy to be proven wrong.

I think for £30m you should buy a better player from the continent e.g., Mkhitaryan, 

 

 

A year left on his deal and there is no way he'd move to us

 

 

He hasn't moved to us a couple of times now.

How many years does Mkhitaryan have left on his contract, out of interest?

 

Are you thinking of treating yourself to an Armenian playmaker to beat those Monday blues?
