Then he carries on scoring and then it's 'I always believed in him', before moving onto writing off the next player.The way I read this thread is ‘blah blah blah’ then back he comes scoring worldies then oh, fuck me, he’s still great, but next time he’s injured he’s finished..

1) I never suggested people were doubting his ability.No one is doubting his ability.
What they are saying, quite rightly, is that they are concerned we have been playing without a striker for majority of the season because our 32 year old striker has been out with probably his most serious injury to date. 32 years old, plagued by niggling injuries throughout his career, professional debut at 15 and hardly played for 9 months.
You’re telling me that people discussing his capability to return from this the player he once was, are misguided? He may well come back, and score plenty. Then thank fuck. He may well not, then we may shit the bed this season. It’s football, the sport is literally littered with player in their 30s who never look the same or get a long-term run of fitness again after a serious injury and surgery. They’re hardly the antithesis of a City supporter for acknowledging these possibilities.
If this situation doesn’t get the club planning for, and making moves towards, life after Aguero, then the people leading our club are more incompetent than thought of.
He should be given every chance to get back but if he is still out come January the club have a decision to make particularly if Jesus were to get another knock. In those circumstances a loan move for backup at the very least would seem prudent.It's getting time I'm afraid.
I hate even thinking of writing him off but, since the initial lockdown after the raggy derby he's played around 2 full games over 4/5 matches.
He'll always be a hero & legend but, trying to get to the fitness level we require isn't doing him any good.
It'd be great if he could get 20 more goals for us over all compies to get to 400 & 3 more International caps for 100.
