    I thought he was great today,extremely industrious,strong on the ball and technically brilliant.

    Yes he's primarily a number 10,but he is doing a fine job out wide in the absence of Sane.

    He is now playing how we know he can and is settling in very nicely. A great player

    He'd suit the number 10 you mean...

    Hes predominantly played this very role for most of his career, unfortunately he lacks the physicality at present to stand out... 12 months of peps high intensity training will see this sorted, however as much as he played well yesterday, he slows us down at present as he is easily marshalled off the ball, hence he's checking back an awful it!

    Yes,thats fair comment.He has the technical attributes associated with the role.

    He really can be David's heir.

    Agreed, however he needs to toughen up like dave before he's able to do that role, I have faith though!

    I feel there is some misinformation regarding Bernardo's ability at Monaco. Some people seem confused why he hasn't completely adapted when he is playing the same position, to be frank, he really isn't.

    Our 4-3-3: We utilize our wingers to give width and have our fullbacks come inside to overload the midfield. Yes Kyle Walker will provide width occassionally, but not predominantly. In this formation we already have 3 midfielders so Bernardo doesn't have as much freedom to come inside because we have already overloaded the midfield.

    In Monaco's 4-2-2-2: Monaco let the fullbacks provide the width with the two central DM's to give them cover, usually one of the DM's dropped more than the other (Fabinho over Bakayoko). The wide midfielders (Lemar and Bernardo) came inside regularly so the central midfield was never over run, in this they became the main playmakers for the team for the two forwards. Crucially, the midfield is not overloaded so Bernardo is the main outlet.

    He was never a goal scorer at Monaco, and he didn't need to be because the 2 forwards banged in all the goals. In City's 4-3-3 the wingers HAVE to be goal scorers, unless Kevin and David can increase there goal scoring output to make up for that, but they are mainly playmakers, and well therein lies the overlapping issue, Bernardo is as well.

    I thought he had a good game yesterday. Gonna be a brilliant player for us. Put Fuchs on his arse a few yards. Think walker maybe not overlapping as much yesterday due to pace of Vardy. But Bernardo will come good.

    Him & Gundogan are finding their feet just at the right time of the season.
