In Yaya's time, City had a defence behind him and a forward line. We had a team capable of winning titles.
We have a side now with some wonderful players but we also don't have a defence. That was the case when the season ended and everyone in football assumed we'd address it in the Summer.
Barcelona should have cashed in on Messi whilst they had the chance.
Like it or not, the well managed clubs in European football at the moment are Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
Rodri was playing in front of Fernandinho last season. Until City fix the central defence it will stress other parts of the team.I think Vinny, Yaya and David Silva would have only managed a 'pretty good' after their first seasons with City so i will wait and see how Rodri gets on.

There lies the main problem with City at present.
Folks discussing whether various players in absolutely key positions have been 'pretty good' or not.
If KDB, Vinny, Yaya, DS, Dinho, Sergio etc had been 'pretty good' we wouldn't have won many trophies.
Well barcelona are not. Man Utd certainly are not. Italian football is a joke...see Juve. They want to add Suarez to Ronaldo. Inter have become an old folk's home. At home Liverpool boss the Premier League.
All we needed to do was repair the central defence. The job is half done.
