Mahrez The One That Got Away

Recommended Posts


Nice story. I'm sure every club lets class players slip through their fingers. And it just sounds like us. If he had been a six footer and put it about a bit he would have stood a better chance. Probably written off as a tanner ba' player. Mind you if you come from Algeria, winter in Paisley could freeze your nuts off.

I remember a few years ago speaking to an Everton fan who claimed that Maradona was on trial with them as a teenager, and was sent packing for being too small.

That's the reason we never signed Sally McCoist when he was on trial as a boy.

Thanks Gus!

Gus???

Mahrez is 25 years old having been born in February 1991.

St. Mirren were last in the First in season 05/06.

Going by Mahrez's description of the cold snow, this "trial" period with St.Mirren would have been before February 2006.

This means Mahrez must have been 14 years old when this trial apparently happened.

He was playing in the reserves at the age of 14 and scored a host of goals? This would have been sensational if this actually happened. This would have been all over this forum if this had happened!

If this was true then word would have spread quickly immediately amongst all the clubs in Scotland, if not the UK!

Mahrez then says that he eventually joined a club called Quimper.

A quick check reveals that he joined this club in 2009... at least 3 years after the latest date that this trial could have happened.

There are quite obviously a number if inaccuracies in this story!

To be fair, it was mahrez that said the Scottish first division. In the same way that ligue 1 is the top division in France, maybe he's just calling the top division in Scotland the first division.

And if it was just before he signed for quimper, he would have been about 18 and our reserve team at that time would have been the under 19/20/21 whatever the developmental league was called at the time, in which case he would have been playing/training with them to win a contract.

And he says he scored 7 in 4, however that would likely have been bounce games between our own players or closed doors games.

So it could have been true. His compatriots madjid boughera and the guy from hearts would have been here around that time so he might have had friendly faces here and a shared agent.

We all know how bad Gus was with youth.
