    So in summary, you randomly guess that all the players from La Liga were his idea? Bony looked very much like his idea tbh, he is the one obsessed with playing 2 strikers and he's the one who seems to always want a big man alongside Aguero. Bony doesn't look like anything Txiki has signed before, it would be very odd for him to think that Bony is in keeping with the philosophy he's put in place throughout the club. (also, Pellegrini does seem to fucking love him) Again, all guesses though, I'm sure that there are a lot more people involved in signing players than just those two as well, it's impossible to know who was really who's idea with the odd exception (Caballero and Demichelis)

    My understanding has always been that DoF's are more about the long term acquisitions, whereas the manager requests players for the short term, but who knows.

    I did say I was guessing :)
    Caba and Demi 'played with him hence we both assumed his decision. The La Liga folks coz I think he'd be consulted. Others not so much.

    Bony haa started 18 of about 90 possible games since he got here. Some are injury absences, others are flat out not being started.

    Contrary to popular opinion, he doesn't really favor Bony. And he binned the 2 Striker system rather than feature Bony in it.

    The reason why I picked the others, Navas, and Negredo is because he favors them.

    I think Navas earned his favor but that's just me.

    I think he's played Bony far more than his form has deserved, so I would say he looks to be one of his favourites. He's persisted with him far more than a manager who is leaving at the end of the year would if he didn't rate him. Navas and Negredo I'd agree that he liked the idea of, I imagine there was a bit of both in those. It is hard not to use the way the manager has used players to decide how much he wanted them. From that point of view it certainly looks like he didn't care much for Mangala, Sterling, Delph or Fernandinho, they always seem to be the first to get brought off or dropped from the side regardless of how they are playing.

    Being a DoF looks a shit job tbh, you buy a bunch of players and then have to just watch as someone else uses them badly, then you get it in the neck for it. If things work out then the manager gets all the credit, I can't think of too many DoF who ever get any credit. I'd probably go full on Massimo Cellino and start demanding the manager played the players I want the way I want!

    Right so who'll decide if we decide to go for Sanchez or not?

    There have been suggestions that Pep Guardiola could try to take Alexis Sánchez (27), who is 'frustrated' at Arsenal, to City. [Telegraph]

    What don't you like?

    Pep apparently insisted on the signing of Sanchez when he was at barca, i hope he does the same when he comes here.

    is exactly what we need. Reus, Sanchez or Greizmann have to be our main target!
