      Nonsense. If he passed to Jota at the end.. everything would be fine. This angst is purely because he messed that up.

      Barely Championship standard this season, no touch, can't pass, can't shoot, can't beat his man.

      I hope it's just a season out of form and not a bigger issue. Guess we'll know in a few months.

      People give out about Mo but Salah at his worst offers more than Mane has for most of this season.

      He hasn’t been bad all season Baz. He has seen a drop since Covid. It is what it is and I’m sure he as much as we wants to get his old form back and he’s trying to play his way back into form. He will get it right at some point. He’s world class just like Bobby and everyone dumping on him all of the sudden is silly.

      He started this season great. However, to me he looks to have lost a step and I think he's trying to do to much. He's never been great with the ball at his feet and a has always thrived on moving without the ball and captilizing on position opportunities. Now days he tries to skin everyone and looses the ball far too frequently.... Mane has definitely peaked as a footballer. I'm not saying he can't get close to his best form, he certainly could if gets back to working off the ball. But he's in decline of his physical ability IMO. If we could get close to what he's worth I'd sell him. I doubt we could with him on this form.

      As for Bobby, he seems to be a bit revived here lately. I like him with Jota. I think he would be fire in a 4-2-3-1 as a deeper play maker in the middle

      That is Total BS.

      He has been crap for over 2 months now.

      Constantly falling down, looking for a free kick ....always in the wrong area of the pitch.

      Gets the ball, runs at defenders and straight into them instead of going around them.

      Even his simple passes are missing the targets.

      We all love Sadio and want him here but he needs to get back to his best quick smart. If ever there was a time that we need him to get his groove back, it's for this run in!

      Agenda...my arse!!!

      Can't believe today's short appearance has triggered more criticism in this thread  :roll:

      Agenda much?..

      Stop with this sh*t. No one's got an agenda you f**king mutant. Fans just can't explain the Sadio Mane of the three previous seasons and Mane this season. The drop off in form is f**king alarming.

      No agenda here against Sadio. Hes absolutely awesome but the 2nd half of this season... thats a real real worry.

      Cant carry on playing this badly and hopefully its just things catching up with him and nothing a proper pre season wont solve.

      Where did you pop up from with this nonsense?  :lmao:

      Was he so bad in that 15 minutes that it warranted further criticism in this player thread? Absolutely not - and THAT is the point. If he passed to Jota, and Jota scored there, the bitterness in this thread wouldn't have been posted. But, because he made that error, its fire squad at dawn.

      Went back and watched games from this season, ever since he returned from his COVID situation late last year he was terrible, people are forgetting he was completely different before that. Not blaming that entirely but there are still unknowns and long-term effects on people who were vaccinated/cured. Mane's also mentally not there, it's not pace, he is clearly overthinking his game. Everytime he is making the wrong decisions, he passes when he should shoot, he dribbles into trouble instead of making a simple pass. There is something (or things) going on for this massive drop off to happen to him in this short span of time.

      Nonsense???? What the f**k have you been watching the last 2 months?

      Even Jürgen just said the other day, he knows Sadio hasn't been playing well for a while now but all top players will come good again.

      We know it will happen, just need it to happen for the run in and then he can have a nice long rest and be primed for next season.

      I never said he was a slouch or a scrub, I said he has never been great with the ball at his feet. A montage isn't going to make me think any different. He is certainly a freak athlete and quick AF. But u could also make a video of him losing the ball from this year alone, and it would be a lot, but that wouldn't encapsulate him as a player.

      Sadio is an energy player. He has always thrived off it. He makes incredible runs and tracks back to help the LB and MF. Mo is more of a luxury player. He doesn't do as much of the dirty work as Mane, but we love him anyways because he's our top goal scorer.

      Mo is still scoring goals, we need Mane to get back to affecting games in his own way. IMO that's being off the ball more, creating space for himself and others, and working on his positioning.

      Again, I'm an idiot, but for what it's worth

      Get the feeling a bit like Robbo he's literally running on empty at the moment.

      Hardly surprising when you think about it. He's been running about like a blue arsed fly for us practically every game for 4 years. Plus his dip in form followed him having f***in Covid!

      Players losing form now and then should hardly be a baffling phenomenon for anybody who follows football. Never mind when you consider the above about Sadio. His consistency over the previous few years is more remarkable than him having a dip this season. He needs a rest, along with a few others in the squad. To me, he should be getting credit for the fact he is still going out and giving 100%, always showing for the ball etc, despite being probably knackered, and definitely out of form. A lot of players aren't as brave or committed as that when out of form.

      Didn't all the players have a multi month break during the first lockdown, how much longer would they need to fully recover? Robertson has been over played this season, but Mane does not have the same excuse physically.

      Seems to have lost a yard of pace and a tonne of confidence.

      His link up play with Robbo on the left has fallen off a cliff.

      Hopefully Sadio hits the reset button in the Summer and is back to himself next season.

      Hopefully a summer break is what’s needed as his drop in form is the biggest reason why we have dropped off this season, Bobby hardly ever scores so no great loss.

      Don’t expect any major Summer signings as I Can’t see anybody buying him at a decent price in his current form which is the model for FSG.
