Trautman does have a statue, in the foyer of the Colin Bell stand.Now... Don't get me wrong, I think these guys have been the best players of our greatest era, but I also think the likes of Bell (I know he has a stand), Lee & Summerbee, or Trautmann, Doherty and Eric Brook to name but a few would equally be as deserving of a statue.
I think the club could do more to celebrate our rich history around the Etihad rather than just the pictures they currently have and really celebrate it, putting paid to all the idiots who dismiss it. There is more to be reflected of Manchester City FC than the modern era.
I expect pelters for this opinion but it's exactly that, just mine. I'm not for one moment saying these guys don't deserve a statue, they 100% do and I look forward to it going up, they are quite possibly the greatest to wear our shirt.
Be interested for @Gary James opinion this.
Feel so sorry for all those slightly racist, misogynistic homophobes.Yeah, but any player from the 70s and earlier will probably turn out to have said something we'd now consider slightly misogynistic, homophobic, or racist, so their statue would get pulled down anyway.
Are they having theological debates about Iconoclasm?I could write an essay on the many detailed and complicated reasons why Yaya doesn't deserve a statue and the other three do, but if you look on Twitter it's because Yaya's black and a Muslim, which cleverly ignores the fact that many of our owners and directors are Muslim and Kompany, who's getting a statue, is black. The average IQ of football fans is plummeting and it's depressing as fuck.
After a quick glance through this thread I'm guessing a lot of people haven't seen these statues that are already in the stadium.There was discussion of a statue for Bert after he passed away but nothing seems to have come of it. Wonder if those who decide these things have eyes for the stars of the shiny present and future but not for a hero of a grimy and grittier part of Manchester history.
