    Thank god for that! Someone talking sense about Foden. A gust of wind or a strong fart could blow him over. Loads on here pushing to get him in the first team. Now is way too soon. His time will come. Let him mature. Just because he’s English shouldn’t mean he should be being picked. Zinchenko is ahead of him in strength and maturity.

    Just got to be patient with these kids. What the club and Pep is doing is exactly what i thought and said on here at the back end of last year.
    It wont be next year til these guys see some serious minutes and they have gained valuable experience this season.
    When you look at a 17 year old Phil Foden what do you see? A young local kid, City fan, lots of potential and a lot of support from the fans.
    But realistically is he any better than the players already ahead of him? Silva, KDB, Ilkay, Dinho, and even out wide with Silva, Sterling and Sane.
    We also have people comparing the Pep approach with his time with Barca and City. It's almost impossible to compare, as has already been pointed out, having a B team playing in the Segunda is far more beneficial than having an U23 team playing in a handful of games of a 3rd and 4th tier cup competition.
    Also, Pep brought through Busquets in his first season and Jeffren in gis 3rd season with Barca, so for all those exoecting these kids to get an easy ride, then think again.
    I'm more than happy to see these kids earn their opportunities and as i have already said it'll be the end of the year before that starts to happen.

    Great job on the youth, keep it up

    Was going to disagree with you when I started reading that but your argument turned me around. Good post.

    Foden (and Diaz) coming on
    Ideally should have come in earlier and more often but fingers crossed next season will happen.,

    Delighted for him. Should have gotten on a lot earlier but got there in the end.
