    Oh Manchester, is wonderful....
    Another game crying out for his energy. Thought Bernie was exceptional last night, but we needed more control in that midfield. Hard to rationalize that Phil couldn't have helped with that.

    As supporters we don't give a shit about the Champions League (for obvious reasons) but for the people in charge it's equally important and if there was clear daylight between us and the rest then he might get more opportunities. For some reason Pep only seems to trust him for cup games and dead rubber Champions League since his sending off.

    So if Phil plays we might not finish in the top four is what your suggesting??

    That’s just bizarre and if he’s not good enough for a top four chasing team then we may as well give up with him.

    There’s natural caution with young players, but your viewpoint is extreme caution. Ie we can’t risk him when we go for the league/ we can’t risk him for a top four place....

    What’s the point of him being here and why are you so scared of a brilliant young player in the side. Every excuse under the sun not to play him

    Ask Pep on why Foden isn't getting more game time not me. He is the one who has been given targets on team affairs. I'm trying to second guess why he hasn't been given more of an opportunity. The sending off in the Atalanta could of been the start off it.

    Would be surprised if Foden doesnt start today , we need his energy and freshness against the aggression of the Blades , would even consider Dinho reverting to midfield and Garcia alongside Otto , need to tighten up the middle of the park far to many teams have been by-passing our midfield this season.

    Start him. It's way past time. He is not dumb. He clearly notices how Sancho his equal a year and a half ago is now viewed as a top 5 winger while he is still deemed 'potential'.

    Time to let him find his level. Start him going forward. O er everyone not named Kevin

    Barring any injury crisis, he’ll probably end up playing less minutes in the league than he did last season.
