    Mohamed Salah

    Well, you can be happy to disagree, but the facts aren't on your side. Is he operating at at 32 goals out of 36 games level? Well, no, because that was the greatest season in the history of the league (Aguero maxed out at 26 goals and Henry at 30 goals for context .. Salah was playing in a wide midfield position!!) and its not usual to repeat the greatest season in the history of the modern game year on year (unless you're Messi & reinventing the rules of how we understand football to be played). Is he still a league above a Raheem Sterling? Well, yes. That's why he's been a major component to his team having the greatest start in European football history while beating Raheem Sterlings team from pillar to post on basically every meeting. The question you should be asking is why the media entertain Aguero & Henry as being the definitive Premier Leagues marksmen when Salah's best season blows both firmly out the water. Not why he hasn't repetitively broken the football universe again since.

    Kind of puts to bed the argument of this being the "weakest league ever", doesn't it? English sides DOMINATING in European competition (4 English sides simultaneously in European finals for the first time ever last season; all progressing this season), while routinely dropping points week by week domestically. That is - except for us, of course who just put together the greatest start of season run in the entire history of the universe of European top flight football (cant quite overstate that enough!!!!). Perhaps the media will soon wake up to the fact that we have 6 greatest-of-all-time Premier League players playing simultaneously in the same side, with an admirable rest of team following them up?

    Mohamed Salah

    Nope. Salah has 18 more league goals in 3 seasons over 5 more games total. 30% more goals. That's an outrageous difference between wingers at elite level. As elite players go, theyre not comparable. You can give the facts to any of the English media who'd hope to argue otherwise. 30% over 3 years isn't a marginal difference - its gigantic.

    Mourinho's been finished for years. People acted like his performance at United was an outlier. It wasn't. He was dreadful towards the end at Chelsea; he continued that on at United; more so at Spurs (noted at the time how fun it was going to be to see him and the equally loathsome Leavy unravel there). You have to reconcile the fact that he's essentially a different human being to the man that strutted into Stamford Bridge 15 years ago. I repeat - fifteen years ago. That Mourinho would have met the suggestion that he would ever be a skysports pundit with a shit eating smirk. Yet, that's precisely what he became. He's more in the Souness or Gary Neville mould now - a decent generic commenter on the game, but way out of touch with how to construct an elite management structure & tactical toolkit. Mourinho epitomises being the ego centric loner while Klopp has surrounded himself with the worlds finest coaches and staff in every facet of the game - from the pitch to the backroom.

    Mohamed Salah

    Change this to the world please. He's head and shoulders above all but one or two players in the league. Sterling? Hazard? Please. They all pale by comparison. He is judged by ridiculous standards relative to his work rate and position on the pitch.

    Posted after the Villa game that it showed us nothing we didn’t already know about City, and so today goes: in some respects, they seem to have morphed into a 90s spice boys team this year. Well capable of knocking 6 past dross on their day, but fundamentally flawed against teams that battle and can hit them on the break. Still weary of them in Europe: hope Madrid put them out
