    He really shouldn't be allowed to take penalties. Neither for club nor country.

    The goalie did a Kasper by the looks of it.

    Mahrez really isn't very good at penalties

    No good at penalties. Does not track back. Never makes a simple pass, trying to beat several players instead.

    Do not understand why we ever bought him. What a waste of 300,000 Euros!

    Mahrez and Slimani have been dropped from the Algeria squad.

    Funny that the man who thinks he should be signed by a “top 4” club can’t even get into the Algeria squad.

    Hopefully this will be the kick up the backside he needs.

    I wouldn't pick Mahrez either.

    He let his country down massively in the last round of games.

    He's not a popular man in Algeria at the moment.

    As for Slim, you can't really pick a player who never plays.

    ... and who can head a ball but seems almost incapable of scoring with his feet, or even making intelligent passes with them.

    Apart from when he played for his previous club and his country.

    His passing and control is absolute shit but some of his shooting is pretty decent. That one against someone in the Caribou Vase was very decent.

    I'm afraid Mahrez seems set on destroying his own career. Classic case of 'pride and the fall'.

    I hoped that he would go in the transfer window because he was clearly done with us. For him to go at Christmas it looks to me that a 'top club' is going to have to take a chance that he will re-find the form of 16 months ago and pick him up at a knock down price or he and his agent might need to look at the Stokes, West Hams and Crystal Palaces.....but suspect that this would mean a wages cut.

    I will put my hat on no big clubs wanting him for the rest of his career.

    They want players who perform year in year out. Not just one season out of four.

    Doubt if Mahrez ever believed that he was worth £50m .Is he just woefully short of confidence or is his lack of effectiveness part of the reading by opponents of Leicester City generally.........not that based on current form we need a lot of reading? My own guess is that Chelsea took out Leicester when they signed Kante by taking our best player by far and making our 4-4-2 system unworkable.

    Fecking philistines slagging off one legend and one very good striker for no reason.

    I have literally no idea who you’re talking about.

    The word 'legend' means virtually nothing in modern football contexts, so I'm going to guess Sergio Hellings is the legend.

    My impression was that the Algerian FA hadn't selected Mahrez and Slimani because with Algeria being out of the competition, they wanted a look at (give a chance to) some of their youngsters. Had it have been a 'for real' game, things may well have been different.
