I'm not disrespecting Celtic. I'm disrespecting their week in week out opposition.
Bournemouth are currently in the top 10 and are the 7th highest scorers in the league (even above Utd), I'm not sure how that equates to being in a relegation scrap and playing garbage football.
I'll admit that Bournemouth are not the best example because they do actually play some decent football and don't come to the big teams with the aim of scraping a draw but at the same time, no team goes to Bournemouth and tries to park the bus against them. They're not patiently trying to break teams down, they score plenty and they concede a bit more.
goodness me young man x2
In his year and a half in Scotland, from what I've seen, he regularly scores from outside the box. Only de Bruyne does the same sort of thing for us. You've got to give the kid a go because that sort of goal goes through, over, round packed defences.
Man of the match performance, two great goals heaps of praise from BR but is it enough?
Realistically how much football will he get with us next year and whose place in the squad would he take?
If Navas, Delph and Nolito leave and he impresses in preseason he might get a spot. However, as has been suggested here will
he get the game time he needs to continue his development? Bournemouth has been mentioned above and tbh that would not be a bad place
for him to end up on loan. It is then up to him to nail down a regular place and show what he can do at the highest level. There are not that many
players who have his knack of scoring goals out of nothing from outside the box and if he continues to improve his all round game he could turn out to be a gem.
Ok. The opposition in Scotland is not all that. However any player that can score those type of goals on a consistent basis is special. Can't see any reason why he wouldn't be part of the first team squad next season, starting in appropriate games and giving Stirling a rest in others. If he continues to show this type of form at City he will give Raheem some real competition.
Celtic have offered £6.8m rising to £8m with a 25% sell-on clause for on-loan Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts. [@Pmacgiollabhain]
Hahahahahahaha. We paid £12 million for him but they think we'll sell him for that?! Silly twats.
