I don't buy this "he needs to be patient bullshit". We're lucky he actually supports City.
I don't think we're any more lucky than he is.
Weiss looked amazing against Barcelona too mate, around the same age, but look what happened to him.
Don't get me wrong, I think Foden is on the road to becoming the real deal, but he'll be in properly when he is properly ready. I certainly don't think Pep dislikes him or has any other ulterior motive. And I also feel Pep is in the best position to know when the time is right...
I know I'd love to see him in now, but I can't say he should be. So it's my heart, not my head !
I saw Weiss that night walk past Barca players, he looked unplayable. Pep is the best option for any player young or old, he was a player and will always be on the look out for a better option. Foden, Diaz are in a shark tank not Huddersfield or Saints where they are banging the door down to get a game. City is the best team on the planet with depth and competition brutal, The fact we saw Foden and Diaz in the Charity shield I think answers the argument in some ways. It was a stroll in the sun.
