    John Stones - 2020/21 Performances

    I've been a fan of his also, but let's be real, it'd been more than a dip in performance. It'd been almost two years of largely self inflicted issues with injuries on top of it. Hopefully he's on the other side of it now, but lets not pretend he didn't deserve criticism.

    Academy Pathway to the First Team

    I know we all hate Garcia now, but the fact is he's both better than THB is right now and much more experienced. Guardiola is always going to pick him over THB in a game that means anything.

    Oleksandr Zinchenko - 2020/21 Performances

    He started playing there in December 2017 and we could have (and should've) bought someone for the position in any of the six windows since then. It's not by necessity anymore, it's because Pep and Txiki have clearly decided that's his position here. Therefore, for our purposes, he's actually...

    Erling Haaland

    Barcelona can't afford him, and we just won't for whatever reason, but the rest of those teams track. I feel like this depends on whether Real move for Mbappe this summer. If they do, PSG will just offer Haaland the GDP of a small island to secure his signature as replacement.

    Oleksandr Zinchenko - 2020/21 Performances

    I'm not having a go at you, but I think it's probably time to retire this line. It's the only position he's played for us, is the position he's played the most as a professional, and Pep has shown no inclination to play him anywhere else. He is a fullback now, just unfortunately not a very good...

    Oleksandr Zinchenko - 2020/21 Performances

    It's really, really hard to come in and play well when you see the pitch as infrequently he does, so I don't even blame him necessarily, I just don't really understand why he's on the team. He's still only 23 so hopefully he can move on somewhere soon and have a good career.

    That was 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    Injury updates - seemingly none

    Apparently he did mean he's still got pain in his knee.

    Aymeric Laporte - 2020/21 Performances

    I love this, message sent by Pep. Laporte will be back obviously but he's needed some competition.

    Fair. I actually just happen to agree with him. It'd be great for Stones to be back, but it is just Burnley and we're drubbing them. It's never been that he didn't have talent, it's longevity. Need to see a little more, that's all.

    Didn't realize we had thought police here

    Lol, anyone else notice that Jesus was a little annoyed that Mahrez didn't square the ball to him for a simple goal?

    Stones looking quite good. Would be really nice if he could have a run of form and fitness here.

    Burnley (H) | Pre-Match Thread

    Pep has literally just said his knee isn't feeling right, the same thing he said last week as well. It's pretty clear he isn't totally fit. It's not a secret what's happened, if it were that he would've just said so.

    "Rested" in Zinchenko's case is just a polite way of saying benched.
