We'll go again!
- Jul 11, 2013
Ummm...I get the general point you're making mate but VVD supplanted a previously error-prone Lovren and Allison replaced the fairly regularly error-prone duo of Karius and Mignolet. The chasm in quality is huge!!De Bruyne has never struck me as a luxury player or one to shirk the hard work or being less than effective in what was required of him in a defensive capacity. I don't think the sun shines out of Guardiola's arse but he is a great manager and would never tolerate a player who could not put in the effort required. This kind of argument harks back to the days past when used to think that we were actually okay in a position and that improvement we could make was minimal and then VVD and Allison came in and we all went 'Oh my'. I am pretty sure that if we do get in a player like Havertz, for example, we will be going 'Oh My' again.
