@Andy-M said in Mariano Diaz:
@playingcards1 it's the only thread on him, so why are you classing it as a new thread, @misto can connect it to the place he has all the other threads.
And regarding the 9+3 min he played, I'd understand if he didn't get to touch the ball because Ajax were attacking, but everything he did he lost or misplaced, did u actually watch the game ?? Sometimes it feels like people just have to say something to annoy others, if i want to start a thread on a player that doesn't exist then i will, thanks.
There have been at least two other threads on Mariano - I’ve written on both. But that’s not your fault; just a problem with the FI forum lacking a proper search function or sub forum pathway.
No my main gripe is the dash to write off a player on the flimsiest of evidence. He’s been injured for months and had a few minutes at the end of a hard fought away game. Find me a player on earth that would look match sharp in those circumstances.
I don’t own Mariano and I don’t think he’ll make it at Real Madrid, but let’s at least have conversations based on his playing time or lack thereof. Let’s have this conversation after 2/3 games where he’s consistently, crap or isn’t getting minutes at all, and I’ll be as engaged as anyone else.
But a thread at this time doesn’t really have enough evidence to justify itself. It’s like if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completes his rehabilitation with 5 minutes at the end of a summer friendly game vs Norwich, and someone sets up a new thread to post about his god awful ball retention and how AOC is finished. You regularly complain about how cluttered the forum has become but threads like this are part of the reason.
