Don’t be fooled by the shirt numbers. That was the way that City played under Mercer and Allison. It’s not that far away from the way that Walker, Cancelo, and Zinchenko play.Eh ?
Certainly Pardoe was very similar in style to Zinchenko. Both played most of their career at no 3 yet both started out as attacking midfield players and neither are anything like orthodox left backs.
Those who never saw the Mercer-Allison team play May get fixated by the shirt numbers. Those of us who watched them will not be.
