    One minute before he scored - I screamed fuckoff Mahrez you are shite.

    Then I was going absolutely mental. Lets hope he comes good.

    That was a decent start!

    Saved his best game of the season for the most important game of the season. Sublime the way he checked back on to his right foot for the goal, a truly iconic moment in our history. Hopefully playing such an integral part on such a massive occasion gives him the confidence to thrive next season

    Mahrez 18-19, is hopefully the (sort of) Bernardo of 17-18, with a similar level of improvement in his 2nd year.

    Looking at the PL celebrations and aftermath comradere (sp), he seemed to part of the squad, engaging with people and getting engaged with himself.
    Which is better than I thought was the case at around the penalty miss.

    Mahrez22: “I’m very happy here. I’m not going somewhere else because I don’t play. It’s part of the game. I need to be strong, stay strong. It’s part of my personality, I never hide away from things...”

    “It’s not easy to come to a settled team. That squad did everything last season. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but I’m confident in myself and have no doubts about my quality. I knew that when I had my chance I’d take it. I scored at Brighton and helped.”

    “Of course if I scored [at Anfield] we would have had two more points but in some games I scored and we won 1-0. So we’re not going to count everything, it’s about what we did.“

    I'm delighted he had a good game yesterday. He's looked lost and out of it for most of the season. No better place to show why we bought him and send CoachWreckersFC into second place!

    It's great to see such a lift in performance, in the crunch game of the season. I think this will give him a spring board for next season, because he does bring something totally different to the side.

    All his goals come centrally. He is so good in front of goal, I think Pep should continue to use Sterling and Bernardo out wide, but go with Mahrez and Kevin in the middle, let Kevin operate a little deeper and Mahrez a little more advanced. The one thing I always hoped David could bring is more goals, and Mahrez will do that better, probably less assists but he can improve there.

    It wouldn't be bad to let Mahrez play on David Silva position, he is dangerous in front of the goal. In the middle he could use both foots to shoot on goal while on the right side he seems to be limited on cutting inside. Because his right foot isn't good enough on precision crossing. But he can definitely shoot with it. It's not the first time Pep is using a player on a different position, and I think it would suit Mahrez well.

    You know what?

    I watched the video of all of our goals that City put on youtube and I'd forgotten he'd scored that many!

    Few assists in there too.

    I think he was absolutely dogshit in the cup games and that didn't help his case at all.

    He'll get his shot next season.
