We need him behind the striker or we'll lack creativity - hope both Origi and Ings get a run out at some stage vs United. I'm veering towards using Origi's pace as a bit of a shock tactic but I...

How many fans are genuinely 100% neutral? Even the more rational ones cave in eventually on here as the latest case of double standards, blind loyalty, delusion, mud slinging or chest thumping. We...

City bought Sterling because they desperately needed direct pace in transition and to create space for others. A dimension that the likes of Navas were continually failing to deliver. They...

After that shambles of a transfer window, some clubs are literally one long term injury away from compromising their season. Kane, Giroud and Rooney are three examples. The window has been open...

He's not the problem - needs others to feed off him better and we've hardly created an avalanche of chances for him.

Posturing, brinkmanship and willy waving from both clubs - there is no good reason the deal could not have been sorted earlier.

And my point is, if stats are irrelevant, what on earth are any club paying 34m-36m for a 19 year old who's not played in the PL for? The reason why I highlighted those three players was that at...

So a forward doesn't prove his worth by scoring goals at the requisite level? Interesting logic. How does he prove he's worth 30n+ then? Goals at an early age at the top level is a good basis I'd...

A Rooney long term injury is surely the fear behind the drama - and that's assuming his Premier League form picks up. Still think United will grab a proven PL striker before 6 p.m tomorrow.

Reckon we should unleash Origi's pace against United to keep their high line busy and perhaps feed off Benteke. We nerd to do something different given Coutinho's absence.

I'd even consider...

Did you sleep through the 2014 World Cup?? One of the players of the tournament. Unless he's had a crisis of confidence, he should become your number one.

If he's ever played for a sustained period up front rather than wise, he'll do a decent job. He wasn't helped by knee injuries earlier in his career as he was a top prospect. Good luck to him at...

Owen, Rooney and Fowler were all scoring regularly in the PL at 19. Martial hadn't kicked a ball in this league yet.
