Nah. What the team needed was a new and better CDM in the summer.
Fern is 36 and unfortunately showing it and Rodri doesn't have the pace or speed of thought.
Against poor teams like Norwich and Arsenal, sure, against decent opposition and it shows.
Looked decent enough on the right. Went central to do what sterling wasn't at the start of the second half, missed a long shot, head went (main criticism of Jesus) then was subbed for Mahrez so Sterling could go back to his disappointing go at centre forward.He was wank today. Maybe he is ok when we play ok.
Couldn't disagree more. Rodri played both games vs Real, Rodri played when we smashed Liverpool 4:0, Rodri played when we won at Anfield 4:1, Rodri played when we won at Chelsea 3:1, Rodri played when we won 2:1 at PSG, Rodri played when we made rags look stupid in the league cup (3:1 at OT), etc, etc.
It's amaizing fans still think we won 22 games in a row last season in spite of Rodri not being good enough. Clueless.
So they all sat back last season? Rodri had a very good season and I've seen and heard every City fan fuming because he didn't start in the Champions League final.When teams sit back then sure Rodri looks decent. When he's pressed he really struggles. He doesn't cut out potential threats like Fern does.
