    My opinion is that Mane will very soon prove to be worth a hell of a lot more than 30 mil in today's market.

    I agree. I reckon Klopp could also use him at the top of the midfield three and use Gini Wijnaldum out wide in the attacking 3, it will change nothing.

    Last season our midfield 3 were samey, bereft of ideas. What Klopp invested in is pacy direct players. Both are destructive.

    So far Mane has been outstanding! He has been worth every penny.

    He has pace, and I mean serious pace! Extremely skillful with the ball, takes players on 1v1, can finish, tracks back to help defend the flanks(vital in a 4-3-3), works hard....so far he has ticked every box for me.

    Right now, 30 mil is looking like a complete steal.

    yeap 30 m wasnt a bad price in general....... bolasie for 25 m to everton..... is nowhere near mane for potential

    Looked like a 50-60m player yesterday.

    But has to perform every game ... We don't need another Firmino, who only truly turns it on 1 game in 3.
    you didnt like how bobby turned the fullback inside out and laid a simple ball in to coutinho to make it 5.. keeper saved it but bobby has his own skillset also

    Think whats also refreshing about Mane is that he has not took a year to 18 months to settle in, very impressive so far.

    It's quite possible. When we signed I thought good player, but we've overpaid again. I'm just not up with today's market, and so I think just judging any 15mil+ player on whether he's good or not and ignore the money,

    Under 15mil, just think of it as a lottery ticket. Such are the times...

    I feel this is the difference about picking the right 30mil pound player. Contrast with Benteke, who is also PL proven, a good player, but simply doesn't fit our style. Mane fits in perfectly.

    For you oldies, anyone remember the press around Barnes? The verdict was that Beardsley was a safe bet at 1.7mil, but we were taking a risk on Barnes at 900k, but he ended up having one of the best season's ever for us by any player and went on to be a top 5 legend. The context of playing in the right team is really important; it's also why Barnes was not that great for England.

    Adds a different dimension to our attack he'll get atleast 15 goals in all comps this season.

    Clearly he's above everyone else in terms of athleticism. Daniel Sturridge who?

    Very much so. Think he's going to do really well. potential for a lot of goals. Better player than Sterling.

    I said before we signed him that I was unsure on his quality, but worth the gamble.

    Reason being; I'd rather he was at Liverpool than one of our rivals.

    Imagine watching him do what he did Sunday, but in a United shirt.

    Really hope he can keep it up and be consistent.

    Top end pace is not what counts in Football but acceleration over 3-10 metres. That is what gets you the ball and takes you away from players. Usain Bolt the fastest man in the world could look slow on a football pitch because few of the runs are likely to be half the length of the pitch.

    I just want to add my voice to the chorus of praise for mane. I hadn't really seen much of him at all before the Barcelona match. Two matches later and he's very impressive. If he has any kind of consistency to his play, we've got one heck of a player on our hands. And a new hero to boot. Something that's been missing since Stevie and Suarez left I feel.
