      We usually wish ex players, well with their new clubs. In this case shouldn't we wish Nice good luck, for taking on a player of Mario's nature.

      So a guy who disrespects one of the club greats, Carra, and says he hated the club and disliked Brendan and Klopp, whilst being a selfish lazy pr**k of a player, that is the person who you lavish best wishes on, you are one very very weird fan!

      I personally hope he vanishes into obscurity where he belongs. Ballon D'Or, don't make us laugh Mario you delusional moron.

      Carras tweet about him was disrespectful, unnecessary and unbecoming. Just wish him the best and move on.

      If anything carra should be lambasting the Transfer Committee for being so useless and getting so many signings completely wrong

      Or, since my default view is posts that I've posted in, this bubbles to the top and I have to see it because people keep posting in it.

      Don't click on it then

      2 goals tonight against Monaco in a 4-0 victory, 1st one especially was a brilliantly taken goal. Where has this Mario been for 2 years?

      He has found his level.............for a couple of weeks at least until he gets bored.

      That was my thinking earlier when I saw that he'd scored. He's an Adebayor type.

      He's an enigma.

      I disagree when people say the talent isn't really there in him I think there's superstar there but his mentality prevents him from realising it...shame

      He's an overhyped gobs***e!

      We're the worst mistake of his life apparently. Personally I'd say the worst mistake of his life was thinking he was far better than he actually is.

      Although he wasn't alone in that: do you remember the balloons who suggested BR should have built the team around him?  :laugh:

      To be fair, the ref has admitted he got that call wrong and Mario shouldn't have been sent off:

      7 goals in 7 games, only 1 of which has been a penalty.  Maybe Ligue 1 is more his level, and maybe he was never good enough to make it at LFC, but the kid can score goals in the right setup.

      The lad is a skidmark in our history, don't even know why we are still talking about him.

      I'll acknowledge his ability when he wins the Ballon d'Or  :roll:

      So, there are only 3 active players (Kaka, Messi, and Ronaldo) whose ability  you recognize?

      So he's lighting it up in the French league - but lets be honest, it is a league for sh*t strikers incapable of playing at the highest level.

      Isn't it Zlatan?

      As you point out he can put them away in the right/less competitive set up.

      Exactly!!  It's just funny sad that some former players like Balotelli and Borini get called all sorts of names because they were poor players while at LFC.  Neither ever did anything to embarrass the club, but on the flip side there's people on here still defending Suarez like:

      "Well, Evra is black....  and playing for United objectively makes him a piece of sh*t....  therefore, Luis didn't really do anything other than state the facts of the siuation." 

      "That dirty c**t Chiellini used his shoulder to punch Luis in the teeth!!"

      I'm not trying to rewrite history.  Mario was nothing short of sh*t while he was here, and it's clear as f**king crystal that he wouldn't fit into Klopp's tactics.  However, I always got the impression that he was capable of much more than he ever showed here and his performances this season seem to back that up. 

      Best of luck Mario!!  We don't all hate you ;)

      Are you kidding? Balotelli embarrassed all of us every time he put on the shirt and strolled around the pitch putting in f**k all effort and f**k all goals.
