      Still prefer mo cutting in from the right instead of playing centrally,  more of a threat

      Think he was trying that at times against Leicester, the biggest problem though was there was no support or space being created for him to do it effectively because our midfield were lacking so much in creativity that Bobby has to drop right back, essentially between the defence and midfield to get the ball to try and make something happen, which as a result just made it easier for them to defend Mo because he had even less space and they had an extra man they could put on him with Bobby being nowhere near the attack.

      It was a penalty 100% and all those saying “that’s because he goes  down too easy...” I refer to Naby.

      The ref was an incompetent tart. End of.

      Spot on

      Not one f**king mention of that Manc C**t, was it Lingard? can't remember, being touched on the shoulder and going down like a bag of sh*t.

      F**k off you Media Cu*ts!!!

      So Salah getting racially abused because of his background and religion seems to have stirred up less hornets in the English press than when they were accusing him of diving.

      Not only that, there's less of a storm for when Sterling got racially abused. Press coverage was quite rightly all over that incident but it's clear that there's more tolerance/flexibility when it comes to Salah. Why? Because he's not English and he's also a Muslim. Simple.

      Ironic given West Ham have a couple of Muslim players themselves in Diop and Nasri, so not only are they racially abusing the opposition, but also their own team.

      But it doesn’t fit the media narrative. They’d rather go hell and leather after Salah and accuse him of diving on a clear foul than highlight something that really matters such as racial abuse.

      And West Ham think they've identified the guy and sent info to police.So fair enough, 1 guy in 60,000.

      Damn that is cool, now if he could just start finding the top corner a bit more and with some more power in matches I'd be happy, honestly his shots this season have been a bit off, straight at the keeper etc and mostly tap-ins, still very important of course but I miss those curlers into the top corner from last season.

      You are aware he's scored 9 and assisted 3 in the last 10, right? Yeah he hasn't scored in two games and now he's out of form.

      For his standards - he’s out of form, most of the team is (excluding Mane)

      I did say he's still vital to us but his goals this season have mostly been tap-ins, I honestly can't think of many outstanding goals from him this campaign, like we had last season where he was regularly bending it into the top corner and scoring goals out of absolutely nothing, All I am saying is that I want the old Mo back.

      BTW his goal where he made an idiot of the goalie turning him this way and that before slotting it home was his best goal so far and I really thought at that point that he was back but he's regressed a bit again, hope he can really find that top gear again but he needs Bobby to start helping him more as well.

      Doesn't matter how they go in, the fact he got those tap ins means he is good at reading the game and that's vital for being in the right place at the right time. Some players can't do that so well and usually the players who read the game well can extend careers longer than those relying on pace and wizardry alone.

      Well actually it does matter a little bit how they go in because what Mo gave us last season was goals from out of no where, where he'd dribble past a couple of players and then slot it into the top corner, that is what you need when trying to break down tricky teams who are defending well, for example against West Ham he had a couple of times where he did the turn and swivel bit but then his shot was straight at the goalie, last season they would have been slotted past the goalie, its that little bit of magic which is not quite there at the moment, if Mo can rediscover that then we win the league easily, even without it we have a damned good chance of winning.

      Not sure he's been as good this season. A few of his goals these days come from the spot which keeps his stats up. Last season I think maybe one of his goals was from the spot? He's on the fringes of games recently. I'm a big believer that when he comes deeper and runs at players and plays 1-2s he's a bigger danger than when he's playing for tap ins.

      One things for sure is he has always liked scoring against the weaker teams and last time against Bournemouth he destroyed them. Hoping for similar this afternoon.

      With the mess of the unsettled back 4 it's not one goal we need from the front 3 it's a few more than that.

      Reminds me of Sturridge.

      Stats proved that he was a massive success, but the fans would ignore that and continually claim he was having bad games.  :f_steam:

      Aguero now level on goals with Mo.

      Looks like the race to the golden boot is going to be as tight as the league.

      What are the odds of whoever wins it out of these two also goes on and wins the league?

      Impressive goals per minute ratio from Aguero. Mo is the kind of player to score in almost every game whereas Aguero sometimes goes a few without but has a knack of getting 3/4 at a time.

      I think you’re right though, the title will likely be influenced in some way by which of these 2 are most prolific.

      Despite Mo still scoring a lot and without questioning his quality as a player, I don't think he's been creating chances for himself lately, like when he used to suddenly dribble past two defenders and score out of nowhere. Perhaps the defenders don't give him that kind of space anymore, perhaps it has to do with his position in our current formation? No idea TBH.

      Anyway, as long as he keeps scoring I reckon we'll be OK :D

      The unsettling sh*t has started, it is even described as an "outrageous report" so why suggest there is some basis to it?
      Before some smart arse jumps in with 'well why are you etc etc' it is an example of media or Juventus cuntiness, the reader decides.
