How about you take a gander at the Eric Garcia 2019/20 thread? It is almost entirely full of praise.. up to a point.
Yes praise but that isn't the same as there being a belief that blues thought he was ever a real long term solution. Garcia stepped up and performed admirably when we had a defensive crisis but even his most ardent fans concede that his physicality doesn't bode well for him being a key man defensive force here.
I didn't say most City fans don't think he's a decent player or even that they don't rate him. I said that most don't rate him 'that highly (that he becomes a long term solution)'. Outside of being pedantic, I don't see anything controversial that I've said.
