Today Joleon was magnificent and I would devastated if he went.
Some of his tackling was top drawer and even his footwork and passing was superb.


We will need 3 top class CBs next season if we are to make a go of both the Prem and the CL. If he stays he will get plenty of games, but whether Old Man Hodgson will see the sense in taking a top class defender to Brazil who might not actually play every possible game (and therefore won't be knackered at the end of the season) is another matter. Remember Roy, JL was one of the few to come out of the last tournament with any credit.

Well done Joleon, stick with it. Unless you've been told you definitely won't to the world cup if you stay at City - in which case RHIAC.

Yeah, I really like him. Loved when we signed him. As Mancini seems intent on back 3 ( I wouldn't be surprised if he experimented again this offseason ) it would be great to keep him. I could see Vince, Nasty, Joleon, Micah, and even Kolo play a big part of a 3 man. Will be plenty of games to switch them around also.

Thought Joleon was man of the match... He was immense and showed why he should stay.

Patronising, condescending twat
I've grown very fond of Julian. Can't for the life of me understand why he didn't start at Goodison. For games like that I'd like to see him stay.

I guess the conundrum is that he's only got a year left on his contract. Maybe a two year extension would suit both parties. He's certainly got a few good years left in him.

I certainly feel our recruitment priorities lie outside bolstering the defence.

He's an old fashioned stopper. Ok, but when we need to keep the ball moving because we're being pressed by the opposition he is the weak link that holds us back.
