Has he just not settled in yet? Seemed lost out on the wing at times yesterday. Hardly got a touch of the ball the first 10mins he was on. Still very early days but should we be expecting more?

For £60m I would expect better but I think he is still learning how we play.
Mendy injured again. Pep suggests it could be weeks!16th September 2018 at 10:26 am #26375
Prefer Delph defensively than Mendy to be honest Adlab so perhaps that’s not a bad thing. Think Mahrez isn’t getting enough ball out wide when he comes on. Half the team don’t seem to be aware he’s on the pitch!16th September 2018 at 12:43 pm #26376
Very difficult imo for new players particularly new offensive players to come in to a team as good as City’s and make a real impact City probably have to buy at a higher level than Mahrez for that to happen. Very useful squad player imo though who will prove his worth over the season.16th September 2018 at 2:36 pm #26379
Same with keita. Doing ok but needs more time to settle.
Mahrez is a good player. Just needs time16th September 2018 at 2:51 pm #26382
Keita was world class the best in his position a much better player than Kante was the drift on the Liverpool site? But that was before he had even kicked a ball in anger for Liverpool!?
Keita will be a very good aquisition for Liverpool Sean once he settles in but Alisson is the most meaningful of Liverpool’s summer signings imo.

Ye well nine as I said that say, it was an embarrassing comment
Keita is doing alright and he will get better.
Klopp is doing the same with fabhino as he did with ox and Robertson. I expect to see him starting a few games now with the amount of Games we have.16th September 2018 at 4:44 pm #26390
Sean, to your credit you did Sean unfortunately there are one or two on there who get a bit too carried away. Keita will be fine and I’m sure you’re right re Fabinho Klopp’s too smart not to know he has to utilise his squad.
Been very impressed with Robertson especially in forward mode he looks a bargain now. Cheers 99916th September 2018 at 5:02 pm #26391AdlabParticipant288 pts16th September 2018 at 7:26 pm #26395
Mahrez, I questioned if we needed him but Pep thiks different , so I bow to his better judgement, He does need to start doing a little more, after all, he is not new to the Premier League. As to other questions posed, Delph had an outstanding game against Fulham but the player who continues to impress me is Bernado Silva, we do not need for a replacement of David Silva, we have one. I also like the way Gundogan upped the pace when we were slowing up a bit, game management, call it what you will but it is not a smart way Augerro going through an unlucky spell but he will hit the net soon enough Three should have been six though and improve GD Sterling…dont get me started!!!!!!16th September 2018 at 8:11 pm #26397
Bernardo Silva is quality Brian. He’s nearly a carbon copy of David Silva.
I think I asked jim before but is David Silva cities beat ever player Brian?
Truly world class player who has been one of the best pl players around16th September 2018 at 8:25 pm #26398MikusParticipant211 pts
Sean, to this day I rue our failure to sign Silva years ago. Could you have imagined Gerrard, Torres & Silva up top for us? Think that would have sealed the title for us. Unfortunately for us, the club pretty much collapsed soon after and we went in the opposite direction.16th September 2018 at 8:29 pm #26399
Ye I always remember us being linked with Silva. He was a left winger then Mikus. Really top top class player who just keeps to himself16th September 2018 at 9:25 pm #26401
Sean…best ever? hard to define for me because I can go a long way back, however, he is and has been my favourite player at City since he arrived. I have yet to see him have a bad game, a quiet one, here and there but never bad. I just love his ability to keep moving and finding space, rarely see him make a backwards pass but above all it is plain to see that he loves playing football. I agree, Bernado Silva, he is a carbon copy of David….just a few years younger and a bright future ahead of him16th September 2018 at 9:40 pm #26402
Reading the City programme before the match, the opening pages was a letter from our owner. It was written with a great deal of humility and clearly put forward the desire to continue every aspect of Manchester City F C as well as social responsibility. It is also not just about City it is a way forward for any football club. I wonder how many owners could pen such a letter, well worth a read I know most clubs do not have the recources like he has but this is about what needs to be done and City have not reached “Everest” yet, he says City will make mistakes along the way but they will be worked through with the diligence that has given us the 10 years19th September 2018 at 11:42 pm #26523dr ianParticipant3 pts
We didn’t need Mahrez- he looked out of his depth in tonight’s game. The guy we should have gone for is Aubangyemang or however his name is spelt. Clearly Jesus is simply not good enough. Incidentally anyone else notice our under 19s got mullered?21st September 2018 at 8:31 am #26540
Dr ian…like I was saying, mahrez is an experienced PL player, he needs to get into the game and not just to give short passes sideways and back…get forward lad.
Jesus is talented but I think he will not blossom in PL or with City, we need another Augerro. Lyon also took David Silva, Gungdogan, and Fernandinho out of the game. Fernandinho should be rested given the amount of work he has to do, put Foden in his place for at least 65 minutes. I will be pleased when KDB is back, I am sure our midfield miss him but we should be capable with the squad we have. Cardiff will be hurting as much as we are from last result so I do not expect an easy game but one of tough tackles and packed defence. Sane and Sterling on the wings please21st September 2018 at 11:07 pm #26553dr ianParticipant3 pts
Good evening Brian. I agree that tomorrow’s game will be difficult. Cardiff are a team of cloggers. Not sure if this is the game for Foden but surely Gundogan won’t start. Pep should stop chopping and changing with our centre backs. Liverpool aren’t changing theirs. Walker had a stinker against Lyon. We need the points tomorrow. A new striker in the January window please.22nd September 2018 at 9:19 am #26556
Ian is right Cardiff are a team of cloggers. Bennett on Sane was as bad as they get.22nd September 2018 at 9:09 pm #26599
Gungdoghan was another to face Cardiff cloggers. I was not happy with our defending or pass quality in the first 30 minutes and better teams would have punished us, however, we found our shooting boots, at last
