    There were targets we had who had the necessary skill sets
    We've moved past loaning him out. That didn't happen.

    What coaching would you do with him now?

    Incredible leap for his second (and our fifth) goal - we have seen Ronaldo leap like that a number of times, but so few in World Football have a vertical like that.

    Brilliant stuff.

    Starting to play the Mane role more like mane played it, needs to make more and better runs in behind from the cues of trent Virgil or Hendo receiving the ball in certain positions, but getting there

    And I believe I was the very first person here to advocate developing him in the LFWD role initially, you're welcome

    14 goals and 4 assists in 1900ish minutes of play.

    Young, new language, new League - and a side having a poor season by their sky-high standards.

    Bodes well. The lad is just 23 and the sky is the limit.

    Robertson, Bobby (before injury) Thiago and Diaz at the start too .

    The rest have been way below previous levels.
    24th February....
    Getting to a certainly satisfactory 1st season.
    Goals per minute better than Salah.

    Salah too, not too shabby 22 goals 11 assists.

    But he isn’t Mane, he is a Nunez. And Mané himself made way on the right for Mo.

    There are so many different ways to play, so many different players too and we need to explore that thinking or we become imminently fathomable

    The general idea of a working system of play is to recruit players who can play the roles as they have been defined first and foremost, for continuity and automation, to not upset other working parts of the machinery, but bring their own unique qualities to them, you're such a knob at times, i'm sure you know fine well what I mean and just wilfully misinterpret things to deliberately be a pr1ck, just because I've called out your fantasy pin up poster boy Thiago
