Right

You City-folk have a lot of right-sided defenders.

How do they differ and who should be first choice?

Boateng has been crap. He showed quality in the world cup but has been a real let down and to be honest I think most City fans have forgotten he exists.

Zabaleta is one of the most important squad players, but mainly due to his versatility. He plays in several positions for us, and is the most tenacious, if not a classic defender.

Richards has been playing well this season, and is our best RB. He is powerful getting forward and as somebody who can play CB has defencive nous too. He should be first choice.

Boyata is a CB who fills in there, he's not a natural RB.

I had forgotten City had bought Boateng. He played LB in the WC for Germany tho, Lahm played as RB.

City should play him as LB too.

I never rated him. Another massive over-pay. I wonder how many will leave for at least half their original fee?

Minds in ManChester

Thanks City Xtratimers.

What mental agility then gives ole resolute Zabaleta the head-nod over Richards since Tevez' precious mind-change?

Is this at the powerful Tevez' instigation?

What has the Boateng lost that he had in (South) Africa - his mind?

What stops that Richards from maintaining a high level of consistency - is it psychological?

What spiderwebbed-thinking makes Boyata a right-sided?

What kind of madness makes Touré the Elder such a no-go?

Boateng is NOT a right back, he is a CB and thats the position he played for Hamburg. the only reason he played LB for Germany is because they had nobody else for that position. Boateng has played as a CB a couple times this season, and he did great. he is just not meant for RB cuz he is not good at going forward. Mancini used him as a RB for a while cuz the CB spots were already taken by Kolo and Kompany, and he had to play Boateng somewhere cuz he paid alot of money for him and he didnt trust richards at first. Boateng would have had alot more chances at playing CB this year, but he picked up 2 nasty injuries while on international duty, and now he is out for the rest of the season. im willing to bet that if boateng is still here by next season which i think he will be, than he will play as a CB next to Kompany. he has all the attributes for a CB and he is still very young

(South) Africa's Boateng

(South) Africa's Boateng was a tall strong soccer-athlete with good all-round defensive and technical capabilities including being a very decent crosser of the ball, no?

He had a better passing range than others that play in the same position.

He is not combative or impulsive but I thought he would add grace, maturity and composure to any team he plays for in whatever position.

Apart from the injuries why is having such a torrid time of it?

Is he struggling to come to terms with the tempo and hustle bustle of the England Premiership (like his brother did at times)?

Or is it something deeper than that?

He's getting bullied, in the showers. Because he's only got seven inches.

(W)right...'s Inches

Shaun (W)right... has five feet with his seven inches, no?

Fair to say, his inches don't mark-him-out as a bully of Boateng, Manchesthair; more your regular five-legged guy with genitals that likes to dribble more than most.

Rain in ManChester

If there was one word needed that sums-up the right-sided defensive situation at the ManChester of City wouldn't that be it?

Why is this position on-the-pitch proving to be so treacherous for so many different players - that's what I need to know?

Can you answer this?

How does ole Zabaleta protect himself and his mind from the rain in ManChester that fills such a poisonous chalice?

I will say ??? faced similar problems establishing himself in a similar position at this club against a certain highly effective low-tech Danny Mills.



Which loon let those Mills overshadow that Sun?

Not sure, technically, what this means for either of us.

And [my buddy] embad, his avat[a]r is [of the late] Jean Charles de Menezes [and his partially obscured four-eyed smiling (and presumed) associate], the [former, a Gonzaga-born/Gonzaga-buried] guy who was shot [seven times in the head and once in the shoulder at close range] by the [uK] police in [a] London [Tube-Train that was on the platform of a London Subway Station. The latter, behind him, is his overlooked buddy].

And your elective affinity to a Maurizio Gaudino, good sir, is not?



Will always choose 'frigging weird' if it means me being less 'casually neglectful' and more loyal... and don't you forget/neglect this/that (again).

Seriously, I like the pic, not necessarily because it's 'you' but more because the person smiling is smiling a full, hopeful and beautiful smile.:smile:

It's a bit like de Jong's smile we saw very recently when he got his first goal for the ManChester of City against (the) West of Ham.

All that time part-hijacking MCFail's great 'I'm attracted to someone on XT' thread without any discernible pay-off?
