Hmm I see him more as a true #10 rather than on the wings. The guys is class though. I knew he had massive potential in our his first pre-season with us Jose isolated him and sold him off for having a bad attitude. MOFO!

His ability to drift and find space and his wonderful delivery are what make him special.

There is no reason he cannot play as part of front 3, because in this system pedro/willian is not playing as winger, they tend to get the ball closer in the middle. As pure winger, he will struggle but as front 3 I think he will flourish

I think even Hazard said he does not have to playing out wide all the time in this system

For Christ's sake, how many times will we have to go through this...?! Hazard earns 540 000 fucking EUROS per month, which does 135k euros per week = £116k at the current exchange rate. All French-spe

The only way KDB is gonna get back in the Chelsea lineup is by actually playing well, something he hasn't done since this summer.

I stayed away from this topic as long as I could — and hopped to do so for the upcoming months — but I am too bothered by what's going on in this topic. And, Choulo, if I'm quoting you on this, it's n

I tell you this: he is the first guy who will start to whine in the City team and turn against Pep when things go very bad for them.

Just like how Hazard and Courtois dropped Mourinho last season. Belgian effect.

Jij weet niks

David Silva still the better player for me. If you deny KDB space to pull of his long range passes, he's pretty average. Needs to improve in tight spaces. 

I think he was misused by Pep in this match.

Maybe, but what I pointed out is a significant weakness in his game. He's been terrible for months now according to City fans

He was brilliant against Arsenal just a few days ago, most football fans has very short term memory

This terrible player has 17 PL assists this season so far, despite being pulled a row behind his normal spot by Pep in favour of Silva. De Bruyne has the best passing game in the world and is clearly a class above Silva, although Pep clearly likes Silva more, as he is his only #10. But I understand the decision if you wanna play both players, Silva just waits for the ball to do something, while De Bruyne runs his arse off all game long. So De Bruyne fits better as CM than Silva. But both are CAM.

De Bruyne is the best crosser in the league atm, his deliveries into the box annoy the fuck out of me, Aguero is so good with his timed runs and Jesus just looks like he continues where Aguero's regressed. Guardiola is the reason why City have fallen off a cliff...

I don't think so. They have an old, weakened squad, especially their defensive players: Sagna, Kompany, Zabaleta, Clichy, Kolarov, Yaya, Fernandinho are all over 32 and most of them have suffered several injuries in their carrers. They need a couple of new fullbacks, centre backs and defensive midfielders. Their attacking style with Sané, Sterling, De Bruyne and Gabi Jesus looks fresh, fast and hungry, with a better defense City will be a tough opponent next year.

They played the semis in the Champions-League before Guardiola came and worked his magic with the ~150 mil. he spent. Most of Guardiola's buys have been huge failures, just take a look at that poor excuse of a goalie. Guardiola is too arrogant to be a bit more pragmatic, he can't defend, even if his life would depend on it. Don't forget, this season they will be trophieless, last season Pellegrino won them a cup. Monaco took them out with ease and when taking City as a whole into account, it really shouldn't have happened.

Of course he's not a bad coach, he's just the opposite extreme of Mourinho. No doubt that Guardiola will go big again in the transfer market and they will end up being more competitive. But i doubt that he'll win them the Premiership or even the Champions-League.

Agree to disagree!

What Guardiola started is not a one year project. This year he made the foundation of the new Manchester City: he signed some gifted young players(Gabriel Jesus, Sané, Stones) and build them in the starting eleven and he tried several different formations and tried many players in many positions. This summer he will get rid of players he doesn't need and sign other younger ones. They didn't win anything this season, but if Pep keeps on building this team they can be one of the best clubs in Europe. 
 
Between 2008 and 2016, City have never been really good. They won two PL-titles and Fa-cups, League Cup aswell but no one ever thought that they are really good. Guardiola can change that. He didn't made an instant impact but with so many old and bad players like Jesus Navas or Clichy it takes time.

Which physicality ? He almost systematically loses the ball under pressure. 

His strength is his vision and passing accuracy/weight, maybe the best in the world at that, when he plays one two touches of the ball he is great, if he needs to retain the ball for his team he's systematically useless.

Plus De Bruyne on a double pivot would be suicide.

What level is he at then? He's a very good if not world class AM/midfielder, who even last season (imo not at his best) had the joint second most amount of assists in a PL season ever.
