    I love the Challenge Ignorance signature. Can we also use it against the KDB haters on here?
  2. Kevin de Bruyne

    @Oscar, how convenient to leave out the assists in the national team stats It's 14 assists for KDB incl. Luxemburg game and 13 excluding. How much's Oscar got? (Genuine question, cause I haven't checked) Anyway, no point in comparing the two. They're both tremendous players with their own strengths and weaknesses.

    Would be bloody hilarious if United stepped in last minute and hijacked the deal

    The announcement is taking forever..

    @Sir Mikel OBE: he can play as a right winger, done so many times for Belgium, has one of the best crosses around, about 75% of his assists are coming from crosses, but he does like to cut inside alot, unlike Navas, which may indeed cause trouble with the likes of Silva & Yaya already roaming around there. I think they mainly purchased him as successor for Yaya when he leaves next year. I remember they were already looking at him last season when Yaya's departure seemed imminent (or however the f*** you write that)

    @Sir Mikel OBE: "Fernandinho is their best player this season by far" ... Seriously? I have tons of respect for defensive midfielders, and their work can never be estimated enough, but I think it's pretty clear for everyone that Touré & Silva are the true stars of City this season ... Even Fernandinho will gladly admit to that. It's what he's playing for.

    @Tomo : I get your point but I don't see how that's relevant. I'm not expecting anyone to care about the fact that KDB is not playing for Chelsea anymore, I probably wouldn't either if he weren't Belgian, I can admit to that, but I just want to people here to stop making all these bullshit excuses about him: - "He didn't train well" - ridiculous; - "He couldn't cope with the pressure" - ridiculous; - "He was a cry baby" - ridiculous; - "He wasn't half the player he's become at Wolfsburg" - ridiculous. Mourinho didn't want him, for whatever reason, and all the rest is just horse piss. And you're right, Chelsea 's done well without him, and KDB has done well without Chelsea. Just like Touré at Barcelona and so on. So other than the financial loss, there's not really a problem, but that was never my point.

    It is utter bullshit to say we could "impossibly have known that De Bruyne would develop into such a big player in only 18 monhts after leaving Chelsea." De Bruyne has been absolutely brilliant everywhere he played, Genk, Werder Bremen, Belgium, Wolfsburg. His impressive season at Wolfsburg was no more than the normal continuation of his natural development. It was only interrupted for a couple of months - what a shame!! - at Chelsea. So stop acting like we got rid of a shit player who by some amazing turn of events started developping into a wonder player. Miracles don't exist. I remember Belgian CFC fans like myself being called stupid Belgian fanboys every time we complained about KDB not playing. But we knew how good he was, and how extraordinary he'd become. That's why it was so frustrating for us to see how he got completely ignored by Mourinho.

    Another argument which you see coming back a lot from the Mourinho flock is "He was a cry baby who whined to the media all the time about not being on the pitch." Not once did he do that, not once. He only requested - internally - to leave during the January window because the Belgian national coach told him he needed to play regularly to retain his position in the national team ahead of the World Cup. Is that not legitimate? It was Mourinho who started blabbing about De Bruyne - and still does!!! (we've only seen that last week again) - when he got the transfer request. And if De Bruyne says in an interview, AFTERWARDS, that he wasn't very happy at Chelsea because he didn't play a lot, isn't that the most normal thing in the world? But NEVER EVER was he crying to the media while still a Chelsea player. Not after a million attempts from UK and Belgian media to provoke bold statements from him. KDB is a true footballer, I bow down to him.

    For some reason my new browser doesn't support the quote function anymore :s Anyway, this must be the truest and best comment I've read about KDB so far:
  12. Romelu Lukaku

    his heavy touch is there to stay, other than that top striker
  13. Kevin de Bruyne

    hasn't gotten much game time though recently, not sure if he'd be able to pick up the pace
  14. Kevin de Bruyne

    There is some truth in that, you also see it in Belgium where the combo Hazard-De Bruyne still doesn't really work. Long term I think City mainly see him as a replacement for Yaya who's doing his last season at City anyway. Remember how City already wanted to take him in the January window last year to replace Yaya but didn't go through in the end. In that respect he'd be an excellent signing for them, but it's true that he may struggle a bit as long as Touré AND Silva are around.
  15. Kevin de Bruyne

    Not a big Fernandinho fan though, I think that's probably the only region where they could still do with reinforcement. They'd finally have a chance even in the CL then.
