Getting booed by the Brighton fans… why are fans booing him these days? 

Because of what city buying him represents for the rest of us, Brighton fans know it's not just a grealish and villa problem

He got booed pretty much everywhere when he played for us. Probably comes from the number of times he’s fouled every game. Easier to blame it on him diving then to acknowledge that your defenders aren’t good enough to stop him fairly.

He goes down at any opportunity. We don’t have to pretend he doesn’t anymore.

I still think he's forcing the foul a fair bit of the time.  He's just hard to dispossess, since he'll either happily advance towards a defender or 'hover', inviting the challenge, but in any case reducing a defender's operational space, which automatically makes any challenge look less controlled and considered.

Was a good analysis on him on youtube whilst he was still at villa, they said basically he can play the ball closer to a defender than pretty much anyone in the league, he will get to within a metre of a potential tackler whilst running at full speed directly at him, he's not a knock it past the defender and sprint type dribbler, traore for example 

Add to that the speed of his feet once the defender has committed to the tackle and that he's not scared of the contact

Only watched the first half and I thought both him and Foden were brilliant. People expecting him to fail at City. It wont happen!

So had he not played they wouldn’t have won 4-1? Nobody is saying he will fail. They are just saying he hasn’t added anything they didn’t already have in abundance. That’s the difference.

Its small margins that make the difference. its obvious Pep doesnt fancy Sterling and Silva has gone.

Fine margins in the big games. Let’s see how useful he is then. 

We all know how good he is. He carried us. The points tally without him the side were more of a relegation team so unless hes gets injured he will improve City

I disagree but this will go on forever so we’ll leave it there.

He got 1 and it was a 6 yard pass.

Oh yeah I’d awarded him the third goal.  Thought Jesus scored it but it hit Foden so he claimed it.  He still did assist it kind of but that puts Bailey ahead of him 🙌

No way I ain’t giving him any credit for that one, it was a poor shot that keeper made a feeble save of.  Bailey’s a G :)

The best (or only) thing is what a mug Pep has made of Southgate with him going to City for £100m and playing almost every game.

Grealish and Foden together. Not one or the other as was said at Euros by every fool trying to justify them not playing. Especially as it was so we could squeeze some relative rubbish like Sterling or Rashford in.

On the contrary, the credit has to be given to Southgate for lighting the fire within them by bringing their head down a notch
