Anyway, I still like him, he brings something different.


Silva was class from the off mate. Don't rewrite history.

Not according to some mate but after 8 games in he wasn't anywhere near settled, or the player we've seen for many years since.

I can't see how people can judge Mahrez on such a short spell, he's not even had a 2 months competitive playing time yet.

Each to their own though mate, but I'll give him at least a season to adjust to our play, just like we gave the rest of the team a season to adjust to how Pep wanted the team to play.

Fair play mate. But my issue hasn't been with the way he's adjusting (or not) to Pep's style.

The guy just can't do the basics of football right at the moment. And he's our record signing.

I’d be 1000% happier if he just stopped shooting from 40 yards out to start with.
Tracking back is overrated.

I'm amazed that was even reported on. Us, and/or our players, being followed from overseas supporters? He'd have been Rag/Dipper/Arse a few years back; oh how times are'a changing.

When I watched the game back it was only then that I noticed he had a few shots saved so at least he's doing something right and at least hitting the target.
