    No ones saying Gundogan is solely to blame for the poor results but he's certainly a part of the problem. he is just too slow, negative in his passing (always a safe pass sideways or backwards) and non combative. Still Pep likes him so that's the end of the argument.

    in the context of the debate, maybe you should have looked over a longer period? Much longer.

    Sometimes better to admit you over-egged it rather than keep digging.

    Maybe he is instructed to play it safely now that we have problems at CB. I'm not a big Gundogan fan nor do I think Pep is faultless. I'm just trying to keep some perspective. There is no need to vilify some players or to question Pep after those fantastic two seasons. Pep and the players want to win every game more than most of us. They are only human though and might lose even when they give their best. I think we are going to have a great season after all and those early losses will help Pep and the players later in the season.

    I'm in no way denying they both have been more consistent over their City careers than Gundogan has.

    I just believe it's unfair that he is getting singled out when our problems expand far beyond his mixed bag so far this season.

    Yeah, you have a point but my point is that some have a lot more brownie points in the bank than others. Unfortunately - and despite a very good contribution to last season’s run-in - Gundo is one of “the others”. He just hasn’t done enough over the 3+ years to win over everybody’s hearts and minds.

    Don’t mind him playing but not virtually every week. He was mediocre again today and like a headless chicken at the end.
    Got to think that his regularity in the team is holding Foden back.

    Pep is more fond of him than plenty of Bluemoon posters , that's for sure.
