Hell, I don't have anything against Mario. I even said in his thread that I'm glad he extended his contract with us. I think he's a great player to have.

But don't fucking exaggerate just because he's a Juve player.

Lyon Benzema was a beast. Early Madrid Benz was a force to be reckoned with. Current Benz is barely as useful as Higuain. Both are kinda shit these days.

Saying "this season" and "overall" are two very different things. Saying Mandzukic overall is a better player is just.....
I was talking about those who deemed him useless last season. They now think there's no one better than Mandzukic. Even saw comments like Mandzukic was better than Modric in the WC.

Yeah, it's always based on what happened in the last game.

No sense of balance and goldfish memory.

Yeah nah, there is no way that Benzema is better than Mandzukic. Try justify it any way you wish, ask most Madrid fans who’d they’d rather have and you’d get the same answer from them as you get here. He’s been pretty trash for a few years now. I think too many people remember him from his breakout years at Lyon and his first couple of seasons at Madrid.

So he scored 150 goals on 300 matches by accident and while being shit? Which other player managed to get such numbers by being bad, seriously?

Benzema better than Mandzukic? What are y'all smoking?
Not this season, and I wouldn't trade Mandzo for Benzema for various reasons (performances vs the Cagliaris for us don't matter, big CL games do, and Benzema is scum), but yeah.

Benzema was considered better than Mandzo for most of their careers. Current form doesn't change that.

To each their own, I just find it funny that some only recently discovered what Mandzukic brings to the table (or maybe they didn't but only noticed his goals), and they're the ones overreacting. Mandzo's best for us was in 2nd half of 2016-17 season, following which, they didn't want him in the starting XI for the following season.

I've always thought Benzema was a useless flat track bully, but each to their own as you say.

Benzema back in his prime is a great striker. Benzema these days is an overweight striker who got too comfortable playing with GOAT. He should be playing for Napoli if Perez didn't have a fetish on him.
Used to have the biggest boner for Karim when he was at Lyon. Wanted him here so badly

I'm pessimistic about this however I look at it.

1) Allegri will be told to leave unless we win the CL so we'll want fresh blood
2) Allegri will ask to leave if he win the CL in order to find a new challenge
