Kylian Mbappé

Here is the place to talk about all things city and football!

Kylian Mbappé

Postby johnny crossan » Tue Jul 25, 2017 8:13 am

Just read he's said he "will not be pushed into the obvious transfer" so I think he deserves a thread for that

That does seem like a very deliberate choice of shirt doesn't it?
What is "the obvious transfer"? Us or the Spanish rags?

don't think it's us - Madrid and PSG are the odds on favourites although the Tarquins think they are :)

The obvious one has to be Real. Everyone knows they're the bully boys of European football. That quote also suggests that the statement released by Monaco was aimed at Real more than anyone else, are you listening Sky?

We're supposed to have some sort of 'pact' with them, allegedly as a result of the Sheikh's financial rescue of their stadium redevelopment project a couple of years ago. Also, eighteen year-old proteges have not been RM's taste in the past, partly because of the problem of benching the queue of galacticos to give them game time.
Maybe not so much of an issue with our young forward line....anyone I'll just dream on :roll:

It's probably heresy t some but the blame for our form lies not with the defence, not even with Claudio Bravo, though he helps, but with the lamentable finishing of the last 2 seasons. If we scored half of what we should it wouldn't matter if Bravo fucked up.

Guardiola realises this and I'm sure they will try big time for Mbappe or Sanchez. It's not just a simple question of blaming Aguero for missing - you need to keep all top strikers fresh and hungry - not knackered and running miles every game.

Obvious innit?

I agree with that John, there's a popular myth that defences win titles, in the last 5 PL seasons the team with the best defence has only been champions on one occasion.

Goals, goals and more goals, that's what I want to see.

Absolutely and the more strikers we have, the better, although we need decent hod carriers further back to carry the ammunition to the front line and to contribute with a goal or two themselves.

If this is so, our owners should immediately demand their money back from Real and pull the financial rug from beneath them.

It wouldn't surprise me if true, however Marca
saying this is akin to The Mirror saying the rags have Griezmann.

Hod carriers? We need, and indeed have, quality creative midfielders. The very people who created those many wasted chances!

I heard he wants to go to the Rags but they don't want him as Lukaku is the finished article.

the quoted price is far too extravagant for someone who has been good for 6 months.
before last season he started 3 senior matches.

go back in for him next summer. if Real snap him up before then, so be it. its too big of a risk right now.
I'm not really a City fan. I'm just here for attention.

i agree he's a risk. however there must be a reason every top club is circling, and i would hope they can spot a future star better than you or i.
