Is left back really a problem?

On the bright side - it looks very much as if Mendy will never, ever feature for City again.

On the other hand... our remaining left back options by-in-large are unable to perform the most important duty of a left back - stop crosses from coming into the box.

Those same 50 players have turned into about 250m that we have used to win 3 prems, 1 fa cup and plenty of carbao cups though.

Tbf, you could also argue that it is through the CFG we have secured players like Zinchenko and Steffen etc who have been solid players for us.
With that logic buying Angelino was a fantastic success, it is understandable that we sign young players who do not make the grade, thus we sell on for a profit as they improve whilst here, but occasionally i would like to see us buy a young player a lot closer to the first team squad, Maybe the new Brazilian winger is the start.

City are doing the 'how long can we go without buying' thing in a few positions, left back being the most absurd example. Problem with that is at some point you end up desperate and you cant get a good deal, which city also want desperately.
Painful but true, we’ll flog the dead horse for as long as we see fit I’d wager
