    Do you feel the need to post a reply to every since post?

    I don't quite understand what you've written but I just didn't see the point to your destructive post. That's what we talked about in our pm - how your posts are normally personal and OT. :)

    You mean the pm where you spouted your usual bollocks? Ah yes it's all come flooding back now.

    Mahrez has the ability to be so much better, but for whatever reason rarely has been this season.

    How many chances does he create? He has rarely completed a pass to Vardy this season, never mind a goal scoring opportunity. He has loads of talent but has been ineffective.

    Personally I think he lacks the mental strength to be a top player, he seems to believe himself that he always has three players on him, and that rather than adapt or improve this is a valid excuse for his form. This isn't the attitude of world class players IMO.

    Oh he has been absolute guff. As you can see from earlier posts, I have been his biggest critic this season.

    But still...comparing him to Josh Low is an absolute insult.

    It's beyond insult.

    To me, Mahrez is one of those players that have a bit of magic about them. He's not the sort of player that Leicester City have often or for long.

    This season, like most of the squad, he's been AWOL at times but did K. Weller ever have a poor spell? Did M. Izzett have an off period? Did E. Cambiasso play faultlessly?

    There could be several things going on at the club that we don't know about that affect the way individuals behave on the pitch and we will probably never know the full story of this season but we should be happy that someone as special as R. Mahrez has played for us - and hopefully will next season.

    Demarai Grey is a very good footballer and still young but he'll never be as special or magical as Mahrez.

    I was comparing the impact he has had in most games this season, not his ability, thought that was clear.

    Josh Low. Hahahahaha.

    Some people have lost all sense of perspective.

    How many of our results this season do you think would have been different if you had swapped those players?

    Mahrez has had very few decent performances in the league this season, has created precious few chances all season and he certainly isn't picked for his defensive qualities.

    People question Okazaki's position in the team, understandably, because he doesn't score or create enough, but most games he at least presses the opposition and makes runs to create space for others. What exactly is Mahrez's contribution that makes him irreplaceable?

    Mahrez was an average player before last season and has been a liability more often than a match winner this.

    And i'm not making Mahrez a scapegoat, as i couldn't make a case for most of our players this season. I just don't think Mahrez will be missed terribly.

    He was missed terribly this year.

    Yeah but having someone else there will mean we are at least now playing with 11 players

    It was very subtle, so a lot of people might miss it.

    Papers over here are saying he is close to signing with Monaco.

    Would seem a strange move to me - but they do have a lot of money.

    Would also seem like a hell of a waste of all that time he spent qualifying as a solicitor.

    Really, he qualified as a solicitor?

    When will he get a chance to practice as a solicitor before he retires from football?

    Why after he finished playing would he want to do that? He won't need the money.

    Good for him though, if he wants to do it for "pleasure".
