    Guardiola on John Stones: “He’s young. He’s made mistakes once or twice. This situation, if the player is open minded, you get stronger. Football has more mistakes than success. You lose more than you win, it's a process to be better. It depends on him."

    Judging from this, I get the feeling Pep isn’t satisfied with Stones. Don’t normally hear him comment about the players like this very often.

    Yeah “it depends on him” is his classic ‘I’m not 100% happy with you’ line.

    Pep seemed happy enough with him after yesterdays game,when he singled him out for an outstanding performance.

    I think this season we will finally see the much anticipated partnership of him and Laporte really establish itself.

    Very mature performance. He actually did an excellent piece of defending prior to the Walker clearance.

    All he needs to do is stay fit. Last two seasons he was class then picked up injuries around Christmas and struggled to get back in the team.

    Still at Maine Road in my mind.
    That standing tackle, turn, and clearance in our box toward the end of the match summed up his performance for me.

    Calm, cool, collected, assured, solid, focused, take your pick at the best word to describe it.
