    50 matches x 90 minutes x 11 players on pitch = 49,500 minutes.

    Divide by active squad of 22 = 2250 minutes on average, or the equivalent of 25 full games.

    Now of course that wouldn’t (and shouldn’t) be shared equally but....

    I agree there's a happy medium.

    I wouldn't want him glued to the bench, nor do I think he is despite many suggesting otherwise.

    My post was a direct response to people saying he needed to play week in week out to develop.

    I'm aware I'm potentially burying my head in the sand here a bit, but I refuse to believe that Foden's development this season isn't something that Pep, Foden, and the coaching staff have meticulously prepared and planned to the finest detail.

    Correct - and totally obvious if you think about it. Phil is happy here and just because he is not on the injury list does not mean he is fit to play. Too much is made in the media of his absence - just be patient Blues, businesses do not piss about with multi-million pound assets. If he was my lad, then I could not think of anyone better than Pep (and City) to guide his development.
