This is our City: Manchester City should avoid buying Everton players, Forget John Stones and give our youth a chance.

Manchester City should avoid buying Everton players, Forget John Stones and give our youth a chance.

I don't think we should be buying more Everton players, it just makes no sense when we should be pushing for players to improve us. Not players who are in clubs lower down the table, especially those who are not setting the stage a light. The players we have signed from Everton haven't exactly turned out great, the only notable one would be Richard Dunne in recent years. Michael Ball, Joleon Lescott and Jack Rodwell were all underwhelming if not a total waste of money.

The only logical reason for us to target a player like John Stones, would be for the homegrown quota, that's far from a good reason to go spending the reported £50 million it would require. Even at £40 million it's ludicrous.

Especially when we have the likes of England International Defenders in Tosin Adarabioyo and Cameron Humphreys ready to step up to the first team, Defenders who have been drilled to play the Guardiola way.

I don't think we should be signing John Stones, I acknowledge we need to sign one top class experienced Center Back to replace Martin Demichelis but Stone's isn't the answer.

If it was me I'd get in 30 year old Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid on the cheap and let our young lads learn from him and Vinny.

What's your opinion, Stones? or Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez, two other Center Backs we've been linked with recently?


  1. For me it was Laporte or nobody. Now that we're not getting him I'd prefer if Pep focused on Denayer, Kompany, Mangala and Otamendi while using support from the EDS if necessary.

  2. we are coming to get you . haha .weve got money now . 50 mil. you mugs

      Ahahahahaha we're shaking in our boots, you ain't got a hope in hell of challenging us. You're not even on the level of the rest of the top English clubs, you're stadium is a dump and your academy is nothing to write home about.

    With mangla,ottmnedi and kompany around it would be wise to give break to tossin in the squad and pep can turn this talent to lethal c.b player. Stones is ok but the price is too much and if he struggles then our fans r going to bash him same as sterling at the same time pep should try to get reece oxford who can play a multi task player.
