    Demari Gray. Keep or sell?

    I would say keep. The club already invested 2 and a half years in him. he's (maybe) gonna make a breakthrough soon so I would hate it if another PL club just picks him up, invest a year and get a great young player on their hands. Maybe the shadow of the undroppable Mahrez subconsciously kept him from expressing himself the best way he could on the pitch. He always came off (at least he did for me) as a guy who experiences a million scenarios in his head just before making a decision and it resulted in him squandering the opportunity many times. He knows that he can't push Riyad off the starting spot and Marc is used as a balancing boulder for the side defensively. It's hard to displace a pillar that holds the house. I will give him another year (barring injuries). It's too late to quit now. But folks, keep your expectations moderate! He won't turn into a world beater overnight. It's growing pains for Gray and everyone involved. He is not playing badly on purpose! Let's wait it out. You would think the fans who watched 2 of the greats Rags to riches stories in Vardy and Mahrez would have a bit more patience.

    Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez

    Alli will sure get the most "that wasn't meant for you" assists. I can tell you that much

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Pep's team is built around creating 1v1s all the time. KDB spamming long balls to Riyad getting him 1v1 with the LB is a mismatch every time down the field. I said it before, The Man City team allows the players to have an inflation in numbers. If Mahrez plays on the regular and keeps away from injuries, I can easily see 15+ goals and 15+ assists next season. He will have a lot less pressure to carry the playmaking of the team which gonna help his off-ball movement a lot. The fast 1-2s is a criminally underutilized aspect of his game, and with players like Silva and KDB, he will have the time of his life. If he goes there, he will finally have players better than him to help make him better. Pep will polish his game. If he can make Raheem that good, i can't imagine how good Riyad would be. Anyways, Paddy has potential and can make for a great CAM/SS in the future. I don't think he has the ability to make a huge impact on this team as a RM if the system is still the same. He will take some time to come good but he can become a very serviceable PL starter
  4. Salah is so funny. Seem like a really nice guy.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Did you hear of a player name Mane? he was pretty much the poster boy of inconsistency at Southampton. Or, you can just look at Raheem Plus, in that Man city team, the amount of free assists and goals an attacking player can get is ridiculous. It's pretty much a layup. 65 Million is daylight robbery. It's only a bit fair because everyone knows that he will throw his dummy out if he doesn't get his move.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    If he goes there, the playmaking for Man City will be filthy! KDB, Sliva, and Mahrez will have no problem getting their assists. A striker's dream to play in that side.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    To replace him you need a fairly big name. A fairly big name requires time to negotiate a deal that doesn't leave us with an Achilles heel (like the Kante contract) and a huge price. The club needs to cater to the big name to make him fit easier which leaves only one starting spot. so, do you want to isolate Mahrez or stun the youth's development? Gray was brought as Mahrez's understudy but didn't develop fast enough so the board panicked and bought a left-footed Ligue 2 player as a short time understudy.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    This devaluing of players outside of the top 6 and the lack of credit for the clubs that developed said players is so infuriating. They are pretty much the same players when they transfer out, the only difference is the bigger stage and media exposer.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    It's gonna be obnoxious when he gets called "world class" after few games at Man City like they helped develop him or make him a better player. We will be hearing how Pep transformed him into a great player in no time.

    World Cup on UK TV quiz

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 40/100 My Time 158 seconds  
  13. I Have a feeling that an underdog will win the league next year. (Or maybe it's Spurs' year) won't be surprised if wolves got European football. Arsenal will do surprisingly well next year.

    How Was Your Day?

    had a habit of checking the attendance's book to see names (it has every student's birthdate) and I never found one with the same birthday. I was ecstatic when I found someone born in May let alone the 20th of May.
