Thanks for that. Tbh I was away for the final and haven't seen highlights yet.
I think a lot of the difference was down to Villa playing a back 4 and United a back 5. Against Villa he was playing as part of the front three very high up the pitch but yesterday he was more of a wide midfielder, getting the ball on the touchline 40 yards from goal and that just isn't his game.
It was a positive that Pep rightly brought Bernardo off instead of Phil, perhaps he has finally gained some trust.
Yep, him staying on felt significant.
It was the right call from Pep overall, but still I think that at least partly it was also about it being a gesture towards Foden. Would have sent out a shit message to sub out your youngest player starting his first ever derby within an anyway dysfunctional team that needed a change.
With the league gone, I'd play him in every PL game from now til the end of the season, lets see what a Rodri-Foden-KDB midfield can do and hopefully lays the foundation for next season
I will second that, but add that otamendi should be dropped and Garcia played
Both he and Garcia should get serious minutes for the rest of the season. At least that’s building for the future instead of treading water with an ailing squad.
Whats worrying about the situation with garcia is that unlike foden pep wont play garcia no matter how bad the other centre backs play no matter what stones and ottamendi do they always seem to get games
Phil Foden needs one more trophy  to equal Steven Gerrard’s all time total  - He is 19 years old
One slight positive is that I reckon Phil's now got a good chance of being involved in the Euros! Heh. Can only presume that when football is back up and running he'll be playing a lot more regularly.
