I’d take De Bruyne and Sane in an instant.

Looking at the city players lining up for the game at ours my other half asked me if I liked any of the city players and he was the only one I'd have. Great player and not a nob like the rest of them. They really struggle without him. He has a soft spot for us so you never know.

De Bruyne is great - has a proper old school mentality about him. Very endearing. Strikes the ball as sweetly as any I’ve seen too. Not sure City suffer that much without him though - they seem to have been a bit ropier in some respect with him in the team this year? He seems a little bit slow across the ground sometimes for such an expansive side when they are out of possession especially. Would be perfect as the most forward player in our midfield though.

What a fucking player this guy is 

Lovely compilation, that. Every time he does the DM thing, he doesn't just stop the opponent, but he either comes away with the ball or finds a teammate. And those chipped forward passes are a bit special, too.

I think there are probably a few question marks surrounding De Bruyne's fitness given the amount of injuries he seems to have had in recent times. I do like him as a player,a lot,and it was obvious to see that when he played in the Bundesliga that he was destined for bigger and better things.

Bar when they have defenders injured, City don't really miss anybody when they're out. They have a high level alternative for every midfielder and attacker. 

 

Racism incident aside, if we could have one player from them, I'd have Bernardo Silva. He really reminds me of Iniesta.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! Sounding like he's out for between 4 to 6 weeks, smack bang in the middle of a busy period. Fan- fucking-tastic, not!

Fuck sake, this would be a monumental disaster.

Major blow if this is the case, and could not have happened at a worse time.

Well, before the city game would have been slightly worse, but otherwise, yea, shite.

It's a medium term injury to a player in a position where we actually have a fair amount of depth. If it's a monumental disaster that Fabinho is out for about a month then we're a lot worse than we seem.

Big big blow, but I think we can get by without him. He’s absolutely outstanding and one of first names on the teamsheet but we have been an absolutely fantastic team 15 months before he was fully integrated into the side. 
 

Have to be looking at Gini most likely to fill in in the 6, Henderson did a good job there before Fab but I think Gini’s more tactically astute, so looking at midfield of Gini, Henderson, Ox and try get Naby up to speed. We have Milner, Shaq and Lallana to fill in too.

So long as he's back early January. The game I'm worried about is Salzburg, that's a massive blow. Other than that away at Leicester is big.

Trying to look on the bright side.

 

It's a busy period so he's likely to miss alot of games, but the actual teams we play aren't anything to sweat over, between now and boxing day when we play Leicester the highest placed team we play is Bournemouth in 11th. 

 

As long as he's fit for the end of December-beginning of January then we'll be sound without him. 

 

A few of the hysterical fannies on here wrote our season off after Alisson got injured on day one, and we ended up winning every game while he was out.

We are going to get injuries. We need to be able to cope. Gini is good in there and it gives a chance for Keita or Ox to properly stake a claim to a regular spot.

We played without him for the majority of the first half of last season and still won nearly every game. Easier run of fixtures is helpful. Let's not all get hysterical fannyitis till we see his results, but even if they are worst case, we've plenty of good players in there to cope.

We are conceding goals with him in the team and look a bit out of sorts going forward. Maybe a slight shift and Ox coming in might get us going with the extra runner from midfield. If we had won against Napoli I'd be aloy more comfortablr with just the Leicester game

    • We've broken pep, the fucking fraud. Not sure why he mentions Manchester United in this, is he working on his escape plan? 

      https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50707809?isBumped=0&postFreq=0&isEmpty=0&isProfane=0&tooLong=0&charCount=0&isAwaitingProcessPreMod=0&isSubmitted=1&filter=none&initial_page_size=10&postId=137534454#comment_137534454     Pep Guardiola says Manchester City "might not be able to compete" with the best teams in Europe and have to "accept that reality". His side lost 2-1 to local rivals Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday and trail leaders Liverpool by 14 points. Last season, City won the domestic treble and retained the league title but have lost four games in 2019-20. "We have to improve and accept it and move forward," said Guardiola."[Manchester] United have the quality to defend and the quality to attack on the counter-attack and you have to accept that," he added. "That is the level we face against Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus. They are the teams we have to face and the reality is maybe we are not able now to compete with them. "Maybe we need to live that as a club to improve, to accept the reality now and improve." Manchester City won the first of their back-to-back league titles in 2017-18 with a record-breaking 100 points but were beaten in the Champions League quarter-finals by Liverpool. They reached the same stage of the European competition last season before being knocked out by runners-up Tottenham but did go on to become the first English team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in the same campaign.

        Despite struggling in the league this season, City are already through to the knockout stages of the Champions League ahead of Wednesday's final group game against Dinamo Zagreb. They play Oxford United of League One in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals later this month and are bidding to win that competition for a third successive season. They have also been given a kind draw against League Two Port Vale for the start of their FA Cup defence in January. "The reality is we are 14 points behind for the mistakes we have done, for the quality of our opponents and especially, as well, the things we cannot control. That is the reality but we have to continue," Guardiola said. "We are at the beginning of December and we have other competitions to play in and other games to fight and improve on. "We are not thinking of winning the Champions League, I am not thinking about how many points we need or how many points they have to drop. We are trying to win games, to win the next one."
