    He didn't play under Pep from 17 years of age though

    Foden and Bernardo both have it in them to be as good as Dave without doubt.

    Hang on, why have you changed from "No-one will be better than dave" to "there will never be a carbon copy of dave"?

    Maybe she's wisened up? I think her new point is totally right though, Bernardo could easily hit those heights but he'd be a different player to David. Same with Foden. I hardly think she meant it as a knock on anyone not called David (not assuming you thought that though dw :)).

    Says he’s played in midfield during his youth.

    Think that is where he’ll be playing more often this season.

    I was surprised to see Bernardo playing in the middle after the way he and Mahrez were used in preseason but it's great to know he's an option. I get the feeling he and a decent number of other players are going to be playing in a load of positions throughout the year. I wonder how he is at LB?

    Bernardo needs to play mid - he lacks pace, handicapping his game on the wing.

    I personally think Bernardo is as good as David. Perhaps not as accomplished. They gave different skull spikes. Dave's vision is a spike. His calmness and possession skill are also spikes. Bernardo might be one of maybe 5 players with better ball control than Dave. That's unheard of. And most of the other 4 are Spanish. Bernardo is a far better dribbler. A better shooter, and calmer I .front of goal. His vision is almost as good as Dave, his timing isn't anywhere close. But that tends to improve with time.

    My initial sense of Bernardo ( From his first 2 years at Monaco) was that he has the potential to be Dave's successor. But I must admit since getting here, I am vegbeginn to lean towards Tevez City's position that he in fact has the potential to better than Dave.

    He is a bit more of a slightly less athletic Messi than I gave him credit for. So he has the potential to embody Dave's intelligence and play but with more production.

    It will be special if he reaches his peak
