He's not that young anymore to expect him to put so much effort. He spoiled us with his performances as LM last season, it's obvious he wouldn't be able to play like this all season long.

It's about time Allegri stops seeing him as a fixed starter, especially now that we've got so much talent on the bench. Bernardeschi and Costa should be playing way more while Mandzukic is useful only in specific situations unless he turns his never-stop-running mode.

One thing I cannot stand lately is Mandzukic and Higuain together on the pitch. We're so static with those two; we literally ask for trouble with such an approach - only moments of individual brilliance can save us.
Thats what i said and i totally agree with this. His time as a winger is over.

Well he is kind and fair in the same time :D, it actually proves that no one has the place guaranteed in the team, well maybe except khedira, you just cannot take off mandzu when he plays with his incredible grinta, but wasn't the case yesterday.

That's why we have Paulo and Miralem.
I think those 2 should not carry the burden of others underperforming.

Yes, absolutely, but when we have a hard game or an unbreakable defence ahead, these 2 are the most likely to take us out of the trouble, like Paulo did yesterday, miralem against bologna, they have creative skills + they are our best free kick takers and many times that can win us a game, sure that doesn't mean the others are not capable, Juan decided some games in the past like he did against Lyon or inter last year, higuain can also decide games with his shooting when he plays at his best, he did last year couple of times, sure mandzu came with the greatest moment when it mattered the most in the final against real, but I don't see him do it too often.

The primary purpose of an attacking player should be to create and score as many goals as possible. If they aren't doing that, then there's no point of playing them. We already have Sandro and Matuidi on that left hand side, we don't need anymore defensive cover. We need someone with excellent technical ability and close control who can break down defenses and create openings.

You play Mario as a striker or you don't play him at all.

'Mandzukic, come to Besiktas!’

Besiktas new boy Domagoj Vida has called on Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic to join him in Turkey.

Vida and Mandzukic are international teammates for Croatia, and the defender singled out the 30-year-old as someone he wanted to play with at Besiktas, having recently arrived from Dynamo Kiev.

“I’m not on social media, but some of my friends have published my 'Come to Besiktas’ video,” he said at a Press conference.

“Perhaps I’ll say 'Come to Besiktas’ to Mandzukic as well!”

'Come to Besiktas’ started as a fan campaign on social media, consisting of supporters flooding the accounts of players they wanted with messages asking them to join the club.

It quickly went viral as the Istanbul giants parodied the campaign when announcing several of their signings last summer.

looking forward to more from him on that left side :heart:
He will be 32 soon, his workrate has already decreased visibly compared to last season and it will only decrease with age. We've also bought two wingers in the summer who are younger, faster and more technically gifted than Mario.

So enjoy it while you can.

This is not Mario bashing, this is just me recognizing that it's against the best interest of the team to play a technically limited workhorse on the wings. Natural wingers will always be preferred in the end because that's the winning formula.
