    442….well Frank Swift would be my first choice, Alan Oakes, Colin bell David Silva Kompany Augerro. maybe Les Mc Dowell who gave so much to the club as player and manager. a case for Matt Busby but do not think that would go down well with Red or Blue, probably Sam Cowan a better choice.

    It’s funny isnt it, we all see the game differently, I’ve never really rated silva. Yet, 125 caps, a world cup, two european cups and everything bar the Champions league tells its own story. Fair comment to say overlooked or always in the shadow of Xavi and Iniesta in that team or a quiet genius who avoided the attention on and off the pitch?

    Silva was moved from a winger into a central midfield player. As skilful as they come and worked his socks off

    Never heard a word about him off the pitch. A good family man and a world class talent

    He will be sorely missed from the pl

    Statues? I’d turn ALL of the 1968 league winning squad into brass and distribute them around the edge of the stadium roof, such was their positive impact on yours truly – and many others!! And then there’s Bert Trautmann, Bobby Johnstone, Roy Clarke……

    Surrey Blue…I would not disagree with some but not all and the more my memory goes back I think of wonderful footballers like Geo Smith. Roy Paul Bert Sproston and Sam Barkas…now they were two full backs that never got to the half way line but they could tackle….much needed in those days. Jimmy Consantine Joey Hayes. really good “strikers”. The first player I saw who could play LB left Half and Left wing was Albert Emptage i 47/8 era. some of these may not be in the “statue” category but good club players. Let us not forget “Kinky” in this as well, great service to the club in its worst period of playing

    Steve…Yes Geo. Kinkladze. what a player who happened to be in one of the worst City teams ever
    To his credit he did not want to leave City even in the bad times but our owners at the time used him as a cash cow and never strengthened the team…league 3 was no co incidence we were a badly run club with poor players who had no direction Kinky was a bright light in a dark room

    Where did Kinkladze go after City? I don’t remember him being a big player elsewhere. He was magical for City. I love players like him who play with a smile on their face. Okocha was another, and of course Ronaldinho as the king of them all

    Yeah there seemed to be more of those “magicians” in the sides lower down the league back then. Kinkladze, Juninho, Le Tiss, Ginola

    Hightown….I think he went to Holland then back to derby, could be the other way round memory not that good now. I loved watching him though, something always happened and he got kicked to death in the lower leagues

    I note Yaya has been bleating, think he is upset because Silva and Kompany will have one. A bit of sour grapes going on and the “cake gate” episode. Strange, none of his ramblings appeared when he was on the books. I liked Yaya and he made a significant contribution but I dislike players who bleat about the club and manager when they have gone.They are employed to do a job and follow managers advice. The “other” players he mentioned have not been named or have the alleged players made back handed remarks.

    Brian, there are those who might suggest that YT’s cheese fell off his cracker a while ago. I couldn’t possibly comment.

    Having read is remarks I guess he may also be looking for some press funding. He is a mile off with his comments and the reason why City fans will not ask for a statue. A case of agent contolling him or with his blessing the agent says what he wants, eventually he had to climb down when Pep did not even put him on the pitch. The Club is bigger than any of them

    There are stories that Messi ( or maybe it’s Nessi) wants to come to City and that the Club is working up a proposal. Putting aside the voracity of this stuff, would that be a good idea from a footballing point of view or is it a stunt that sells more shirts in the short term? Or maybe it’s too daft an idea that should be dismissed out of hand.
