    We need a CB. The way Kompany has been in recent years with injury we nearly need weekly cover for him. Otamendi is a great player and I have faith in him to get better - just needs a solid CB partner which Kompany is but needs to be there.

    I like the attacking threat we get from Kolarov/Clichy so we're not crying our at LB but an upgrade would certainly be handy.

    To be honest I would just like us to fix up our defense and then keep the same team for awhile. Although Toure/Silva are starting to get on we have a brilliant assist replacement in KDB. Replace Toure with Pogba (I wish) and we've got a team that can win year in and year out. Iheanacho is the future of our forward line, stoked to see him come on the way he is. You've got guys like Nasri and Navas that aren't getting regular gametime that I feel will play well in the Pep style of play.

    The main point I'm trying to make, we don't need to strip the side and start again. We've got the nucleus, just trim a little fat and we'll we sweet.

    Well that tends to happen when you spend millions upon millions haha Basketball

    Yaya is on the downside of his career, so will need to be replaced in the next year, Imbulla who stoke just signed would of been a good option!

    Have you seen Gini Wijnaldum for us? Absolute class

    Haha no doubt mate.

    I read a report, our profit is only 20/30mil off United. Which is epic.

    Especially with all my Man United mates hating on life at the moment haha. Spent years listening to them dribble. It's so good.

    Every time they come round for a derby game I make sure I play the 6-1 belting at Old Trafford haha.

    sorry misinterpreted your post then. was thinking you were meaning Muller would come because of pep, ie a Darius Boyd/Wayne Bennett type scenario. Of course having your ex manager there will help with negotiations. City do need a LB you are right and IMO Alaba is the best in the biz.

    Arsenal as predicted choking already

    Leicester win again! Go on!

    Scumderland losing, helps and Swans and WBA draw which always helps

    Need to beat Everton to start to pull away now, can't see it happening though

    Vardy's goal would have to be up there for goal of the year. Just brilliant. They're not slowing down, HUGE fixture this Saturday. City host Leicester. If they take points off us at home I think they'll be in the box seat to win the league.

    Incredible if they can pull it off, but think they missed a trick by not securing Remy, he could of been the difference, If Vardy slows down again they haven't got enough goals in them

    I think so yes. Need us to beat Spurs next week and Arsenal to beat them or it's over.

      Current date/time is Fri Feb 24, 2017 7:53 am
