As I’ve said, Mayor’s main purpose is to carry us up the pitch and provide the link between midfield and attack, which he does superbly, Carey’s was set pieces and screamers, basically putting together a ‘highlight reel’, which he did superbly. Carey didn’t do what Mayor does and Mayor doesn’t do what Carey did.
BUT it pains me to say, today in this team i would have a fully fit Carey over Mayor.
Both decent players but I think Mayor is more replaceable than Carey
And that’s fair enough, personally I’d be torn. The key is recognising that they serve different purposes, too many compare them like for like.
'They serve different purposes'?! So is Mayor's purpose not to create and score goals? Cos if he doesn't not sure who will.
