    None of us really know. My take is he looked pretty decent going forward, a bit fat maybe, not great defensively based on those few games. Maybe not that fast and is clearly borderline dickhead. Add to this the fact that he has hardly played football for two years and he is a huge risk. We have invested around a hundred million in him and to date we have had nothing out of him of any substance.

    It’s make or break the next 6 months.

    That simple for me.

    I think it was, originally, but then someone derailed it all... not sure who, but I strongly suspect it was fucking Sterling.

    Not going to name names but I heard it through the grapevine that he was a brilliant soul singer.

    I can't recall his defensive play because City spend most of their time attacking.

    May I refer you to Trent Alexander. He is useless at defending. Doesn't matter because he plays for an offensive side.

    AWB was excellent for Palace because they were a counter-attacking, and few can dribble past AWB, but going forward he's terrible.

    We know how good Mendy was going forward because we saw it all the time for few games he played for City. We don't really know how good he is defensively. I saw enough though to know that he'll be a massive asset for City if he can maintain his fitness and get his old game back. It wont be easy after such a long absence. He's probably just very happy now to be back training.
