KDB better hope that when Silva comes back none of City's other AMs (Navs, Nasri etc.) hit form because he's behind Sterling in the pecking order and Silva is twice the player he is and he's not playing well so there's every chance he could be dropped if one of the others hit form. And we all know how Mr KDB reacts to being dropped and not an automatic starter don't we? :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

0 goals and 2 assists in the league since 3rd October and seeing as Costa gets absolutely slated by people on this forum (sometimes rightly) for his 2 goals and 1 assist in the league in the same time period that should mean he should be getting slated even worse (especially because he's playing for a brilliant team in great form), but of course in this weird world people who are allegedly fans of this club run down our own players viciously and build up others to be like gods who can tell?

He needs to step up massively to even begin to pay off his huge price tag and make it look anything except a good idea for Mou to let him go.

Look out what you're saying. Some fans of his on here will take offence of you being logical ;)

I am awaiting the backlash from angry Belgians but I hope they will come back with a logical debate rather than bile, fury and hatred that I dared question KDB.

He is not behind Sterling in the pecking order. Why do you think that? And he seems to react pretty well. He still gets goals and assists for fun.

Are people still questioning whether it was a good idea to let him go? Of course it was not. That simple. Especially when the man he declared as his no.10 has been overally poor. KDB has been worth the money. This is his first season at City, let's not forget that. Been worth the money. Has had some bad games but majority has been standout. We lost a star player. Simple as that.

I still stick by the fact that if you have a player whining and crying about wanting to leave rather than fight for his place then he doesn't have the mentality to play for a top team. Hence I can see a problem developing if he ever gets dropped by City as he has proved he has no desire to work for his place.

You surely can't tell me if you were a manager of a top club and had proved yourself over many years with many different clubs in many different countries that when a 21 year old you'd just signed comes to you demanding to be played and crying that they want to leave if they aren't you would give into that childishness and play them, would you?

Patience is a virtue far too many young players lack today and the only way to teach them is by not giving into their childish antics. I have no doubt that he would've become a good player for us had he stayed here and maybe even somewhere near as good as he is now but he didn't have the stomach for it, so I fully stand by the fact that it was right to let a player displaying the wrong attitude to leave.

He might well turn out to be worth the money a long way down the line but he has nowhere near proved himself yet, especially seeing as he has only really turned up against the poor teams City have played this year (Newcastle, Bournemouth, Norwich, Sunderland, Palace, BMG) and been largely ineffectual in the big games (United, Juventus x2, Liverpool - he wasn't as great in this game as people seemed to make out, Sevilla away). He's been good, but hardly proved himself thus far.

Know you're going to disagree but I just don't think it was a mistake to let someone with an attitude problem go and don't want to just jump on the already crowded Jose-bashing bandwagon whenever a player he let go scores or gets an assist. I also don't think De Bruyne has been much more than good this year (admittedly better than every Chelsea player bar Willian) but that's all opinion.

What about managers without the right atitude?

He was the difference against Sevilla. That goal was the catalyst for them qualifying for the UCL. I call it an attitude problem with Mourinho if he constantly ignores young top players we have here. People can look for all criticisms of KDB they want but the stats speak for himself. Admitedlly he has not turned up in big games but it might be those 'small teams' games which may make the difference between City winnining the league and that is showing atm. Massive addition and like a lot of us guessed, us selling KDB has hit us back in the face hugely. Who to blame? Moruinho.

The ironic thing is the one he did bring into the first team, a number of people were waiting for a mistake so they could aggressively demand Cechs return.

If KDB stayed, every bad game (or at best a few subpar games in a row) bring back Mata would be the main topic of convo on this thread.

But NOW we have neither KDB nor Mata or Lukaka .. still I guess we are lucky we still have Costa and Falcao// THAT IS IRONY
