City’s yardstick is last season, now it will be very hard to follow but I am sure they will give it a go. I think that Liverpool are under more pressure than City and I think they will react in a positive way but let us not forget there are a good few other teams who will fancy there chances as well An interesting season ahead
Not sure we’ll miss KDB as much as some are saying. Yes, he’s world class but we’re now in a much stronger position, squad-wise, than we’ve ever been. I’m not as concerned as I have been in the past when we lost the likes of Yaya and Aguero for any length of time. KDB didn’t start against either Chelsea or Arsenal and we won both those fairly comfortably. We weren’t great against Arsenal but I feel that was due to a bit of ‘rustiness’. Time will tell.
Must say, great post by Sean yesterday @ 8:40pm.

giblues, with respect..yes we will miss him. I like to think of it now as, we have him fit for the New Year and the run in to the Premier and hopefully some important Cup games, It is also important not to thrust too much responsibility on to Foden filling the shoes of KDB. I am sure Pep will manage him, it is an opportunity though for him to get some game time and I am sure he will take it, at the moment I believe he cannot do 90 minutes but by the end of december he can, then we have a player on our hands
Brian, I didn’t say I don’t think we’ll miss him, I just don’t think we’ll miss him to the extent some are making out – we have a great squad and a fantastic manager who will make any necessary adjustments to accommodate his loss. I feel Foden is still too young to step in full time but do think he’ll get more game time during KDB’s absence.
This is a big blow for City, they don’t really have another player in his mould, they will miss those wicked crosses, not to mention his pace in midfield. KDB is a match winner, to think City won’t miss him is silly. I hope I’m wrong.
