    Lost his CL place to Bravo now.

    I don’t think he will be having a pitch named after him somehow.

    And the terrible thing is we spent months scouting him in great detail, on and off the pitch. It seemed like we were getting a world class player. I can only hope that whole system has been rebuilt from the ground up.

    Laporte suggests Yes.

    I wish Mangala well but I wish we’d spent that money more wisely.

    nobody doubted the signing everyone agreed he was a beast of a centre half, sometimes transfers don't come of for whatever reason ,he was scouted properly im sure, but there are no definite with transfers

    Sure but expectations and reality were so far apart in this case.

    I did and I know of a few others too. It's easy after the event and Ive got plenty wrong but when we were first linked with him my wife called me over to watch a game in which he was playing...pretty sure it was Porto. She asked me if this was the player we were after and I said said yes. Sit down and watch him he is dreadful she added. So I did and he was awful, comical. He was so bad we watched him again and what we saw is exactly what we got.

    To make it worse we both thought City should have gone for Celtic's CH who was VVD!

    It's only because he was so bad that I even remember it.
