    We had a spine last year for the best part of the season.

    Ederson.
    Kompany.
    Fern.
    Sergio.

    Then we played our inform and best players around them.

    That's why a few of the players who weren't getting games were pissed off last season.

    Obviously Laporte's injury has had a massive impact on the team this season.

    Kompany only started 12 league games last season, he wasn't part of the core.

    Laporte started 34 league games. That's the guy the team was built around and hes the one we've missed.

    KDB overweight ? not sure about that, BUT have to say he is not producing enough for a player of his talents, his head is thinking of the Euros and Belgium duty.

    Recently, we seem to have morphed into a confused, nervous team that occasionally scores 5 or 6, but is equally likely to freeze when it really matters.
    However, that's nothing to do with the tactics, because we battered Spurs and were genuinely unlucky that our opponents scored a brilliant goal with their first shot.

    I don’t think it’s mobility per se. It’s more sensing the danger and giving the ball away a lot more cheaply. De Bruyne seems to do it a lot more this season. I don’t know if I’m imagining that or just noticed it more.
    And I mean in areas that are easier to counter from.
    Not just De Bruyne either and we don’t seem set to stop the counter.

    Due to City`s lack of pace in central midfield i thought KDB has been carrying City for months now? I was expecting burn out

    He has carried nothing, he ran this team 2 seasons ago, that player is no longer there, the two knee injuries has in my opinion had a serious effect on him.

    He also gives the opinion of an unhappy player at present.

    He's had 15 assists alone in the league, 5 more than the next best and scored 7 goals. He should win the Player of the year award - not sure what else you think he should do....

    Kompany, are you sure? IIRC, he missed an awful lot of games last year
