Mane leaving was the start of your downfall, not saying it was just that but basically it’s where it all started to go wrong.
Absolutely, but some of these guys just can't see when it is as clear as day. Back when we let Mane go, they rubbished the idea that it was a poor decision. When we started the season poor, they still rubbished the idea that it was a poor decision. Even now after a shocking season, they still can't accept it!!
As I said back then, we should have kept Mane and that would have given Nunez time to bed in and get up to speed. That would have been the smart approach. Mane could have helped us this season when we have struggled - there is no denying we struggled for goals.
A season of poor decision making and players being allowed to not put in a shift. We went to Salah's holiday villa to beg him to stay and meet his demands, and that set in the rot. Players knew that we could be pushed around. Trent for one has continued his holiday. Not a care in the world.
I never called these lads "mentality monsters" because that hype was utter nonsense. This season they have been lazy and arrogant, and played with no football intelligence at all.
