    He is a god awful LB no offense.

    Need to trust Toure in the big game against Pool who will press the hell out of City. He's also not going to have to deal with an International break so he will be extremely fresh as well. I just don't trust Dinho at the moment, his performances have dipped immensely since his great first 4 months last season.

    Looks a million miles away from the player he was. Ponderous in possession at times and caught out because of it. Still worries me how poor we are in the middle. That being said he is a lone ranger at times getting overrun by the opposition.

    I think his greatest value is as a mentor to Gabriel and that isn't an insult...

    You can already see him embracing that role.

    Looks well out of sorts so far this season. Concedes possession far too often.

    Love to see KDB take that role permanently.

    He's also positionally all over the place. Far too often he's ahead of the ball meaning the opposition can counter against us.

    I don't think he's suited to a holding midfield role in Pep's system. He doesn't seem to have the passing range or ability to keep possession that Pep's DMs tend to have.

    He's still an outstanding midfielder but I think he's better at sweeping up play like he did alongside Toure, not as someone who will see the ball so often.

    Can we all agree he had a very solid match even before Mané was sent off?

    Really liked watching him. That through ball was the cherry on top.

    Brilliant today, on par with KdB, but don't expect him to be that good in every game, such counterattacking setup won't be used often.
