Stones out for 5 weeks.
Mancity in bare bones mode CB wise. They could play Fernandinho, Rodrigo (?) or Walker there but they will be comprised.
Fernandinho would probably be ok against the cannon fodder teams like Norwich lol but against the top six they would struggle with Fernandinho at CB.
Is this actually a bad thing for them? I can see Fernandinho doing a better job.
Laporte's injury is certainly a bad thing. He's their best CB.
Yea but stones, he's a bit meh
Well, maybe. Although Fernandinho would be the shortest CB in the league.
I had to Google it, always assumed he was over 6 feet.
Worth it for Guardiola chatting shit about it being so unfair being Man City and not getting to spend as much as Everton or something
Yeah, interested in Maguire but couldn't pay the £80m fee.
(Spent £120m on Cancelo and Rodri)
I can see opposition teams putting in a lot crosses against city now. They look very vulnerable to set pieces.
Norwich are cannon fodder are they now? City wouldn't agree
Good. Fuck them. Cheating cunts.
I think that was sort of the joke
Thought it might be but what the hell. Worth emphasising.
A secondary RB for 35 mil or whatever aye. Must be so difficult with all those financial restraints
Goes without saying but we just have to take advantage of any dropped points in this period. If we pull out a 12 point gap by Christmas I'd hope we now have the required experience and nous to be able to hang on to it. Laporte appears to be a bigger blow to them than Allison is to us. Combine that with Stones injury and the Norwich result and you would hope other teams start to have a go against them.
CB is a key area of the team, in fact at the start of the season and in some games in preseason the one thing that I felt was wrong in our defense was communication and organization. I see VVD a few times getting upset with defensive setup. Imagine now for city that they have to play someone there who isn't used to playing in central defensive position.
Boo fucking hoo. We had the same last year in jan. And we haven’t spent a billion on our team.
Fuck them. Manc cunts.
Vital we take advantage of any slip up this side of xmas.
We generally score less points after Xmas and City have the ability to win an insane number of games in a row.
Hopefully we can build up a big enough lead that they give up.
I suspect that the City players are all suffering PTSD from the bus incident.
Their fans certainly are.
