    100% Garcia. No doubt. Although it was the commentator who gave it him. Clearly knows nothing. Must have Algerian grandparents or something

    I didn’t hear that! What wankers! Doesn’t surprise me though.

    Don't think we've retained one.

    And they say we have no history! Pah.
     
  7. It would be a waste, to put him there full time at this stage of his career.

    Imo, the biggest weakness we have, when Fern is missing, is defensively. We have so many attacking players, we can cover a less talented footballer there, but our defence can't cover a hole there. Stones could easily improve his passing but surprisingly showed no ability to spot defensive runs. Gundogan is nothing attacking or defending from there , Danilo somewhere between the two, Delph never fit enough to learn it.

    But Kev was really good covering, especially when you consider he will not want to get injured & the pitch was dodgy ; his potential for forward passing is limitless.

    We will try to sign someone, but there is no guarantee the player who comes in, will work.

    It might be that Kev, as extra backup is a get out of jail card in that case.

    I would like to see Garcia given a shot at it too.

    Aleix, Manu, or Eric? ;-)
    Really must stop signing Garcias.

    Could see de Bruyne dropping back there if he suffered another injury and couldn't get back to his marauding best, but you only really know if a player is up to it when we play against much superior opposition in a high stakes game. Maybe Guardiola used him there tonight to see how he feels in that position. If he uses him there again against Burnley, it could be that he's intending to use him there, when needed, in the second half of the campaign.

    It’s City...they’re not looking at anything :)
     
  10. Yes I agree, he's just tested the water tonight. Doubt he will play him there weekend due to.the physical nature of Burnley on 2nd balls & Kev's importance, but you never know with Pep.

    But in the future, Kev's a big enough lad & could reinvent himself there if the worst happened re fitness.
