Riyad Mahrez


#1412

WTF … Saw number of new posts and thought we had signed him.

just wow.


#1413

Out of interest, how many posts was it?

I’ve been frequently in and out if the thread so haven’t seen just how many there have been lol

We have plenty of players that are useful and that have different roles but what we are lacking is match winners and world class quality.

I agree.
If Sanchez leaves we’ll need two top quality players.

We only have two players better than Mahrez, and they haven’t signed new contracts, so I’m not sure we are going to attract anyone better than him.

We are out of the CL.
We are being overtaken by all the other top teams, including spurs.
We have to watch other top teams buy several world class players, while we have only bought Lacazette,
We have a manager who has kept nearly all the same the same players and we have stagnated.
Our best player wants to leave and Ozil still hasn’t signed a new contract.

Our transfer window has seen us buy a decent, if not quite the world class striker, that we have waited around five seasons to get.
So it’s not exactly fantasy football the supporters are asking for, but at least a bit of ambition and imagination.
It’s because of our our lack of transfer activity that Sanchez wants to leave.

The fact is, we need world class players, rather than the average ones we have, and we desperately need a good window to give the club a lift.

Is it too much to ask?

Afobe was on Barce’s radar too. Few Ligue 1 talents transition. Gervinho and Giroud lit up ligue 1, so did Gourcuff, Sow, Ayew, Martin, Remy to varying levels. Karamoh and Sarr might turn out to be bang average. Fekir after his injury may never get that spark back that made him special.


#1416

I actually said in the post before that, that there is obviously no guarantee those players will become good.


#1417

Apparantly left of tonight’s squad for their pre-season game.


#1418

He is joining Roma.


#1419

They finally met the valuation of Leicester?


#1420

Many first team players were left out, tbh. But he clearly wants out.


#1421

Haven’t really looked it up tbh.


#1422

Assuming it’s true he wanted Arsenal over Roma, I think we’ll come to regret this one in a month’s time


#1423

IS that definite? I thought he was holding out for a move here and Leicester turned down their offer


#1424

Maxi lives in the real world. Of course it’s definite.


#1425

The real world? Fuck that place, I live in the world of forums and ITKs with pornography constantly playing in the background


#1427

Maxi will be along to mock you presently.


#1428

Monchi tonight has said to have improved so much his offer to Leicester. According to Sky was only around 27M and Leicester refused again.

Mahrez risks to remain at Leicester. Last year made a bad decision not following Kante away.


#1429

Saw that snake Mahrez post a pic of himself with a pouty face saying hes sick, uh huh sure. Def Roma bound… the cunt.


#1430

Sky skources say Leicester turned down a £27m bid from Roma.


#1431

Mahrez is just waiting for us, but we have been penny-pinchers :hipster:

MAHREZ ‘SET FOR ROMA MEDICAL’

Riyad Mahrez is set for a medical at Roma after a fee was agreed between the Serie A side and Leicester, according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport.

The winger handed in a transfer request in May with Roma already having bids turned down by the Foxes in the current window.
