    So, we need a big, quick target man with a great first touch and amazing finishing ability. Romelu Lukaku?

    What are your views regarding Sterling in this City team and Villa in Pep's Barca team? Compare and contrast. I know they play different positions and yet I see similarities.

    In a thread thats about to get pulled.
    Pep is our manager, not Big Sam and he delivers almost perfection both results and performances wise with his brand of football and tactics.

    We will never have perfection, its an impossibility in Sport and the odd game we dont win shouldn't have fans asking for a "Bigman" up front to lump it to.

    We dont need one, target men are for the lumpers n hoofers (rags) et al, that bypass midfield, while Pep is here that wont happen, they way we play at the moment it would be a negative addition to the squad... When you have the talent we have and score as many goals as we do, a target man is not required..!

    Among the many players that have improved under Pep, Sterling is truly hard to ignore to the success of City thus far. For me, Sterling is a winger who can play centrally due to his terrific dribbling & passing abilities. Villa could play out wide but he is/was a goalscorer more so than Sterling has been. I'm not sure that that is what Sterling will be most effective at, playing as the principal goalscorer. Someone with Sterling's speed/acceleration is most valuable on the wing and is faster than Villa ever was too

    What could work perhaps is leaving Bernardo out wide right and bring Sterling in as a false 9. Problem is that when him & Sane are healthy, they are devastating out wide - not sure there are better dribbling speed merchants like them to stretch defenses. Just need someone centrally like Gabriel Jesus

    A tall, strong striker would without a doubt make our front line more well rounded, but it would hinder our style of play if he can't press and is weak technically.
