    In our squad, but not first team starters, and wouldn't improve on what we have only complement it.

    will be regulars for liverpool and will improve their team, but won't suddenly make them world beaters as they haven't addressed the key issues of GK FB DM which they need improving on

    Wow!!

    Fodan and Diaz have huge potential and if either works out as well as Mahrez and wins player of the year they will have fulfilled it. Nothing wrong in not wanting City to sign him but comments like the above make us sound paranoid and bitter.

    There really is some shite spouted on here isn’t there. Very good player and a good signing for whoever gets him.

    He is top player who plays in a average team. He will do well in any top 6 side imo. Arsenal should be happy at whatever they get frm us for sanchez and buy him now or he would cost them atleast double when teams would know they have to replace sanchez n ozil.

    Mahrez would be a great signing for any team in the top apart from Liverpool. They've already got some very good options in wide positions and I wouldn't see Mahrez displacing Mane or Salah.

    I think he is a top player that could be a "Pep type player", it's just that we don't need that position at the moment. More pressing positions currently are striker and CB.

    Because his performances before and after that season have indicated he is a “top” player?

    Nothing I said is original to me or are X-Files level conspiracy theories. In fact, I am fairly confident the PED scandal will eventually come out (as are a few journos who have made rumbles about it).

    Not sure how pointing out the advantages he had for that season, that may not have been available to other players who have won the award, is paranoid and bitter. That is particularly true given he hasn’t shown that same “form” since. There are many only good players that have one exceptional season but never reach those heights again—I am more inclined to see Mahrez in that group.

    I also do not understand why saying that I would rather blood in Foden and Diaz (who I think have equal or greater potential as MahreZ) is blasphemous. I did not say that they would necessarily win the (PFA?) Player of the Season or that the award should even be a consideration for player potential or current value (especially in the context of how they fit into a Pep team).

    Apparently you have to think every player to have won the award is great and any player not to have won it to be lesser than those who have.

    All of you must think Mahrez is/was a much better player than David, Yaya, Agüero, and a few others, then?
