    He is looking at Mahrez now, many supporters see Mahrez of 2 seasons ago.

    In the Premier League this season Mahrez scored 12 goals and got 10 assists. Son got 12 goals and 6 assists.
    So even when he's not been at his best, Mahrez has still been more productive than Son.

    Others can't see a good thing when it's front of them. In no universe anywhere is Son a better option (or even a comparable option) to Mahrez, past or otherwise.

    Mahrez starts every game Son doesn't, they do different roles in the team so a direct comparison of stats may not be the best way to judge

    Minutes played per goal?

    I'm sorry, are we actually having a discussion about whether Son is as good as Mahrez? Have I stumbled onto Foxes Talk or The Fighting Cock by error?

    **** this, I'm off to plug some monster munch into Superscout. I'll get more sense out of that.

    Is that a euphemism?

    when people like yourself stop thinking Mahrez plays like he did in the title season every game it'll help the discusion, its not coincidence given we are heavily reliant on him, that when he goes into sulky CBA mode we look shit and people moan about us being boring and lacking creativity. Mahrez no doubt has a higher talent ceiling then an awful lot of players, Son included but the base level of performance you can expect of someone like Son is far higher than Riyad often delivers, far too often we are effectively playing with 10 men because Riyad doesn't fancy it.

    That said if you are going to run a player to player comparison Lamela would be the player he would actually be competing with.

    I'd take Son though not necessarily as a direct replacement for Riyad

    Not to be a dick about it but you either get more assists or you don’t...

    true I also think assists are Mahrez' primary role where as Son I think is there to score as they have Eriksen and Alli for the provider roles, so like I said I think they perform different roles in a side

    Wow. You really don't understand words do you? Where did I say he was exceptional every game? Did you half read a post and make up the rest? I was making the point that in no universe is Son comparable to Mahrez. I really didn't think I'd have to waste time with people like you defending such a claim. I mean it's as obvious as Gary Glitter standing in Mothercare with his bellend in his hand but by all means try to find a way to have an argument if it suits you.

    Holy Jebus.

    Harsh. I merely quoted a journalist. Dickface.

    well given that they both play as wide players in the main then yes, actually they are kind of comparable

    Son is a good player and I’d have him here in a heartbeat, but to compare him to Mahrez is ludicrous.

    I don’t see Man City trying to sign Son for £60m+.

    to be fair, IIRC their offer for us wasn't as high as that either it was £40-45m plus Patrick Roberts

    I wouldn’t, he’s doing bird for something similar.
