4. "thumbs stalker often resulting in repetitive thumb strain"

Completely forgot about this, although I already had this as an issue thinking Pep would keep Zinny over Delph if he was HG.

Hard to see Zinny staying given this, baring him being loaned out to say, Girona for a season, if he wants to try to get into the team the following season. However, then Jesus would have to count as well.

Even with Jesus and Sane no longer on the not counted list, we could look to our academy/former academy players (I think Maffeo will be considered HG?) or go out and buy someone like Maguire and another HG player to replace Vinny as he ages out.

I think the issue is he's young, talented, learning and playing a position he's not used to. Some take more time to learn. Some never learn.

Seems difficult to say, but having a versatile player also has its benefits, and Pep loves him some "utility players" as some here call such types across da pond.

He has some real attacking qualities and is left footed. When Silva goes, we lose one, and I know Stockport Iniesta is as well, but we've seen Zinny effective at times as a LWB against weaker opposition who park the bus. He just does not do it consistently.

He could blossom into a top player. Are Foden and Diaz "passengers?" They are all young and learning, but it is hard to give them regular game time given expectations for the club.

Totally agree with that.
Wednesday's game was a shambles with half the team out of position half the match, it'd be very unfair and totally wrong to judge him on that performance.
Other than that he's been sound, I thought he was MOTM against the Chavs.


He is very comfortable on the ball and mostly his distribution is good, Pep insists on his squad members to be able to be competent in more than 1 position and he fits that criteria well. His manager clearly trusts him even if some on here don't.

On an aside I had the pleasure of your brothers and his lads company pre and post match at Wembley the other week. Needless to say a good time was had by all.

correctly translated my take in proper English language, my friend.
I disagree on the last sentence though, if I got it right, on Diaz jury may well still out as he appears still too immaturely in love with the ball (call it Tranny syndrome if You like), but Phil Foden, a passenger???
Phil is gonna be the English Gianni Rivera, pal. kinda think I may have misunderstood what You were saying there.

I’m guessing it’s a rhetorical question S4E.
He’s not saying either are passengers, but saying afford Zinchenko, who is only a little older the same leeway.
Correct me if I’m wrong Prez.

am lost IWT, why did You choose the demanding path of the guessing, when it was clearly stated that I wasn't sure of my correct understanding of Prez opinion?
ask instead Prez, if he ever had the impression that I do not rate his proven valuable footballing opinion?

In some games he’s been good, in some games he hasn’t. Young, foreign and out of position. Nothing he has done has cost us anything yet. I’m ok with him so far.

I think Delph will stay if fit. And if not fit can't be sold, so..........


I quite like Delph but he's just not good enough for what we are aiming to do. I think he will leave in near future.
Sometimes we're good and sometimes we're bad but when we're good, at least we're much better than we used to be and when we are bad we're just as bad as we always used to be, so that's got to be good hasn't it?
