    Only ourselves to blame giving Otamendi huge deal after purple patch in the first half of 17/18 season. We have tendency at times to give contracts based on purple patch. See Kolarov, Nasri, Dzeko in the past for example as well

    We have to keep faith with him for the rest of the season at least. A distinct lack of confidence and seemingly an inability to impose himself on the opposition do seem valid reasons in their own right to get rid of him leaving aside the obvious injury concerns. This is a pity because he does have good attributes and has on occasions shown a glimmer of real quality.

    The silver lining is Fernandinho will be back in the team, we need a true leader at the back.

    Really feel for Stones, there is no doubt he can play, but he is blighted by injuries and is prone to making errors. He needs a run of games, where he is fit and has a consistent level of good form. Big season for Stones and he could well be fighting to save his City career.

    Yep, a blessing in disguise if you ask me, and one that will see the long term demise of stones..
