Not easy to find positives after a game like that but I thought Mangala was solid (again). IMO he's been having a pretty good season apart from the match against Liverpool (1-4) when everybody were shite. He's been having some injury problems and he's been third choice but I can't think of him having any other bad games. Is it just my memory that is bad or what do you think of his season so far? Football is like 95% of my life and the only job I have is being an Assistant Manager for a Swedish football club so when I'm coaching or preparing my team I'm reading other teams forum where they all think Mangala is the worst defender in the world (well maybe second worst after today) and the biggest transfer flop in history (I may be exaggerating a bit but you know what I mean). The sad thing is that I often read the same here. I think many of you still got last season in your head when he played like a worse copy of Sakho but this season he's been really good imo. I can definitely see him surviving Pep and becoming a true beast at the back for us but I'm almost always optimistic about City players and said the same thing about Jovetic, Bony, Fernando, Otamendi and a few more (havn't giving up on Nando or Otamendi yet though). Do you think he'll be given at least one season with Pep and do you think he'll come good for us after all?
