E_S_GWhen anyone compares Shelvey to Fernandinho, one of 3 things is the casea) He is a total WUM with no interest in rational debateb) He has never seen Fernandinho and shouldn't be commentingc) He is a total idiot I suspected it was a combo of a and b but the idea that those 3 players would improve City does bring (c) into the equation.
367.Eduard_Streltsov_Ghost@366 Yeah but the players they bought are just that! I mean what's the difference between them, and say Darren Bent, Jonjo Shelvey & Stewart Downing?_______________________They are all better players. Because they are all on the fringes of the Spain or Brazil team and the three you mention are on the fringes of the England team (Downing not really even fringes).
@368 I think it's u that has a little bit of sky blue vision. Spain haven't got a steady supply of wide players, nor an appetite, hence why Villa & Iniesta play wide. THe point u fail 2 grasp is that all 3 plyrs I mentioned would've improved city. As I keep saying, those 3 don't strike fear in me or any1 else. I'd b disappointed if I was city. Negredo over Cavani? Some1 is penny pinching.
I thought we were on the verge of a half normal debate there, E_S_G. but I should have known better. You may know a little about the game but just can't resist the temptation to be a smart a**e or run down any non United player when you can. Shame really. Have a good weekend
@367If you are going mention Fernandinho and Shelvey in the same breath, maybe I should just quit now. As said earlier, 3 seasons ago Bent was a top player who scored goals for fun, he is not close to Negredo now. If you think Downing would get anywhere near a Spanish shirt...... There is a world of difference between all 3
@366 Yeah but the players they bought are just that! I mean what's the difference between them, and say Darren Bent, Jonjo Shelvey & Stewart Downing? This is my point, they needed those players, but it just looks like they've settled for the B/C grade versions.
@364 Eduard_Streltsov_GhostBut what did City need? An excellent striker, a box-to-box midfielder and some width. Negredo is the first (unproven in England but so are Falcao, Cavani etc.) Fernandinho is a better option than Barry who is a bit ponderous and Navas is quick and can put a good ball in. Utd don't need much either - a box-to-box midfielder and creative midfielder or both.
Didn't Negredo play in the semi final of euro 2012 and I specifically remember him being the worst player on the pitch. Bad buy for City!
@363 Varela is backup for Rafael, nothing more. Like I said, I heard Cavani, De Rossi etc being banded about for city, instead they have bough Fernandinho & Navas & may have Negredo on the way. Credit 2 Pellegrino if they win the league, but i just can't see it w/that team. It's not a side that strikes much fear.
@361Never seen Varela so can't comment and he is hardly likely to be the only arrival. Not sure City's signings are that uninspiring, just not household names to many. Every team should improve its first xi by two players every season to stay competitive, according to Fergie and City probably have already and Utd probably will
@358.BaggiosPonytailHard to know how either will react to that spotlight. Obviously Moyes' qualities are well-known inthe UK while Pellegrini is little known so you can only go on 2nd hand views/reporting. Have yet to read a sentence anywhere which has been even slightly critical of Pellegrini in terms of personality/man management or tactical awareness which bodes well. Time will tell
@353 Lol I'm no fan of Moyes and was disappointed by his arrival. This news was lightened by the fact that city had decided to hire Pellegrini. Another "winless" manager. Think we're in the same boat mate. Uninspiring arrivals & w/varela, uninspiring signings for both.
