    Is left back really a problem?

    Agree Cancelo got better in that position. He's probably the best full back in his all round game. Better than Walker going forwards and a decent defender but not as good as Walker simply because of his speed to recover positions. However, there's a good video on youtube that shows Foden...

    Is left back really a problem?

    He played there for the Netherlands and looked okay. Nothing more. He isn't going to be an attacking threat, but then Walker isn't on the right. He rarely does anything other than pass back/sideways and threaten to burst forwards before checking back. Ultimately it's a problem position we can...

    Micah Richards - The Pundit

    Like him as a pundit. Most pundits are shite from a football knowledge perspective but at least he's entertaining.

    Ferran Torres - 2020/21 Performances

    Would have liked to see him come on sooner but understand why he didn't. Was one of those games where I was hoping we'd be 4-0 up after 60 minutes so Torres, Doyle and Delap could all come on. But wasn't to be. From the brief cameo he looked quick and was willing to chase and press which is...

    Nathan Aké - 2020/21 Performances

    Great debut. Looked the part and fit in well. Very good on the ball, quick and good in the air. Looked completely comfortable in the team. A few rushes of blood to come out from the back and expose Stones, but a new partnership will always take time to gel. I do think we'll see him at left back...

    Benjamin Mendy - 2020/21 Performances

    Not really used as an attacking threat as generally there was no one in the box to be on the end of one of his whipped deliveries, but he linked up pretty well with Sterling. The whole squad needs time to get match fit before they're assessed. He's come off the back of more injury and...

    John Stones - 2020/21 Performances

    I thought he played well in the first half after such a long time out. I liked the fact he put his foot through the ball when he was in trouble rather than playing silly passes or keeping the ball for too long (although he still did the former once in the first half but got away with it). He...

    Phil Foden - 2020/21 Performances

    Great performance. His workrate is phenomenal. Exactly why he should have started against Lyon, but let's forget about that pain now. So many times he tracks back and it forces the opposing player to check their attack. That gives time for everyone else to recover positionally. We looked...

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    A brilliant performance. A lot of doom and gloom on here beforehand because of a lack of preseason and fewer signings than we had expected/hoped for. Energy levels were key. The front three and De Bruyne pressed relentlessly and Ferny and Rodri mopped up anything else. Walker and Mendy pushed...

    Match Thread | Wolves vs Man City (21/09/20)

    Absolutely class from City. Shows how good we can be defensively when the whole team presses. Rodri looking absolutely class because the front three and De Bruyne are pressing relentlessly and Walker and Mendy are getting tight. Fernandinho helping the balance too. They can't get in behind at...

    How many countries have you been to?

    Fortunate to have been to 41 countries in 32 years. Kids are doing their best to slow down new additions, but trying my best to add a new one a year (pre-Covid) despite that!

    Wolves (A) Pre-Match Thread

    So many players out, not a great start to the season already. But not worth complaining about it, still got players we've spent a lot of money on and should still be winning the game. One of those where we have to get off to a good start, hopefully the issues we have brings the squad together...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Intrigued to see how we get on against Wolves. Lots of negative blues. Liverpool have strengthened well. Their full backs were looking a bit blown out but with Thiago they have someone who can play the killer pass from midfield. Keita should kick on too and Henderson, Fabinho and Wijnaldum are a...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Kounde and Laporte would be a class combination.
