    Nevin always is one of the more intelligent pundits and one that I do take notice of

    I must say I really enjoyed that and highlights what we are trying to do nice and concisely

    One of the most notable things in the Wolves game when Stones was given a rest was how badly we missed him. Didn't retain the ball half as well and also missed his passes from the back launching attacks. Impressive how much he's improved from last season that he is now absolutely vital to the way the whole team plays.

    Just posted this in the John Stones thread.

    I must admit I'm not used to all this City adulation, my paranoia kicks in..."they're setting us up for a fall"

    But Nevin has always been on the straight and narrow regarding City so let's enjoy it while we can.

    i'm neither nor there with Pat Nevin but i couldn't agree more that there has to be an acceptance that we'll fuck it up every so often at the back, even gift the odd goal, but it's totally worth it on a season long view.

    Can't remember which pundit called it correctly "high risk, high reward football"

    Enjoyed that, thanks for posting. Does anyone else though think Stones looks like Peter Kays long lost brother ?

    pretty decent way of putting it!

    that Napoli game probably pushed people to their limits with it, but was a good example of treading the line between instilling a way of playing that will reap rewards and getting a job done in the here and now. The former will outweigh the latter, in time.

    I love my centre halfs and love Stones..when he was available from Everton I was so excited..having watched him from Everton.
