Threeps, how have I gotten aggressive? Don’t be ridiculous.25th July 2020 at 5:49 pm #134325sean the sailorParticipant515 pts
Mak you said people were delusional because of their stance on Henderson???
I don’t care either way.
I’m just enjoying the last few days and delighted we are champions and very happy Henderson is getting a bit of positive recognition considering the tough time’s he’s had at the club
Delighted for the lad25th July 2020 at 8:34 pm #13436625th July 2020 at 9:06 pm #134374Nike19Participant228 pts
Jordan isn’t a ‘KDB’, And I Wouldn’t change him for a ‘KDB’ or a Eden Hazard or anyone else for that matter.
It’s an Overall Supposed Award that ties and lies within Community. Recognition in the Length Of Service Since Joining Us. When you look at Society Now Where Half Of Them Don’t Even Know What Day It Is,
This is Commendable.
In All Honesty, I really don’t Care if it was Handed to Another Player Of Another Club.
Just A General Flow Of Points Of View As We Go Along in this Unusual And Strange Turn (Pandemic) Of Events.25th July 2020 at 10:00 pm #134390
Sean, Ok I did say that but that was a general statement. It’s not exactly aggressive either but granted, I can see how people could be offended by it alright, so ya I’ll retract that, even though I obviously maintain my position in the overall discussion.
Also, I’ll also be delighted for him. He’s been excellent this season.You all know where I diverge from the general opinion on him.
nil, why are you capitalising all the words? That’s a lot of extra work. Do you have a dodgy spacebar or something and find that easier than getting it to work?25th July 2020 at 10:17 pm #134396sean the sailorParticipant515 pts
All good mak no worries mate
Cheers tks Brian.
Silva is going to be a huge miss. Not only for city but anybody who loves watching football. What a player mate
As I’ve said a few times maybe cities beSt ever player???
Loved watching him play. Stayed out of the lime light aswell. Just good positive stories about him
I wonder what his next move will be?26th July 2020 at 1:54 am #134448
They will definitely miss Silva, who wouldn’t. I think over time they’ve mostly replaced him though, as much as you could anyway. He is a good shout for their best ever player. It’s between himself and Aguero I guess. Did Silva go direct from Valencia to City? He’s been there so long that sounds really odd.
Where next is a good question, I mean he could still go to a very good side and get as much time as he wanted. Could Utd not go for him? Surely he’d walk into that team.26th July 2020 at 11:03 am #134552
Mak..City signed him from Valencia. I think his intention is “just to go home” maybe play for a local club but 10 years at City and still I thought good for another couple of seasons. He may sign for somebody just to have a game i think but I also think he looks for retirement most of all. In all my years of watching football I have never experienced such a fine player and a complete human being as well. I will certainly miss watching him It was a rareity to see him pass a ball backwards, always going forward26th July 2020 at 11:30 am #134558MightyMoosParticipant36 pts
I can name at least 5 Liverpool players that deserve it more than him26th July 2020 at 11:53 am #134566
10 years, wow. He gave City the vast majority of his career and from a player of his quality, that really is quite the honour. I have a friend who lives in Villarreal, so if Silva doesn’t play for Valencia, maybe he’ll be interested in them. Well, they can dream I suppose. I guess we’ll see.
Given that everyone knew this would be Silva’s last season and the POTY thing is actually not solely about what they have done on the pitch, is there no argument to give it to Silva? It’s not the type of thing I’d usually go in for, they gave Scholes an award like this, I think, based around a similar situation but I mean, if we’re already not going by what they do on the pitch int hat given year then surely this is fine. Silva has been a brilliant player, servant, model professional during his 10 years in the PL. he’s been one of the best players in the league over this time.
Just saying.26th July 2020 at 1:12 pm #134582
Silva has been a delight and one of my favourite ever overseas players he will as big a miss for the PL as he will be for City.
He’s definitely got another couple of really good seasons in him imo and going back to Spain where it’s a bit less frenetic and a bit less physical will help him.
I read he might be going back to Valencia which sounds perfect to me selfishly I would rather see him stay at City though but that looks very unlikely now.26th July 2020 at 1:50 pm #134594
It will be Valencia Nine and City will make it easy for him, same for Augerro soon26th July 2020 at 1:52 pm #13459926th July 2020 at 1:58 pm #134602Nike19Participant228 pts26th July 2020 at 2:08 pm #134609
Brian, “It will be Valencia Nine and City will make it easy for him,”
Winning the CL would be a great and fitting way for Silva to end his City career Brian.
I’m sure City would have smoothed the path for him but isn’t all this Silva’s decision with his contract running out this Summer?
Anyway best of luck to him and City on both counts.26th July 2020 at 2:12 pm #134612AdlabParticipant306 pts
Four titles, five league cups, 2 FA CUPS
No player of the year awards.
Aguero? Never in the team of the year.
Absolutely no bias26th July 2020 at 2:14 pm #134614
Nine…I think he could still play in CL this season, I am not sure of my facts about this though. may need a short term extension if City get through as well…doubt if that would be granted anyway
I thinkthe final decision will be the player though, he really wants to go home now26th July 2020 at 2:16 pm #134615
Adlab, it’s a beauty contest mate always has been always will be.
Shame though Silva wasn’t recognised with at least one of the POY Awards because football wise and the joy Silva bought to the PL deserved to imho.26th July 2020 at 2:21 pm #134620
The Football Writers happily give him high marks week in week out for years and still not good enough26th July 2020 at 2:29 pm #134624
Brian, if you look back over the last 10 years of the Football Writers Player of the Year Awards there are some great players who have won it .
I do though think it’s a great shame that Silva didn’t win one or other of the Player of the Year Awards given how much he’s contributed to both City and the PL.
But as I’ve said before it’s a beauty contest and some men prefer blondes and some men prefer brunettes.😀
