Some players, especially young ones, have bad games here and there. It's not surprising. KdB is a stud and I would take him over Hazard for example any day.

There are a lot of elements to his game that are very nice.

Look at his last 10 games even and he has 6 goals and 3 assists for club and country. Pretty impressive for an AM on a new team, and internationally it's always difficult.

Would have loved to have him at Liverpool.

Who cares about the price ? Players has little to say in that matter. KDB is a very good player and one of the best in his position. Period.

In all fairness, his transfer fee genuinely was out of Kevin's control so to say he is the worst 80 million transfer signing is really harsh.

Speaking of harsh, it is best to wait till the end of the season to judge a player's impact throughout the season though I must admit, whatever Kevin did at Wolfsburg to acquire this great reputation I don't see it so far.

That being said, Free should be more patient when calling someone the worst transfer ever. Best to wait till at least he finishes this season.

No Laughing

I think De Bruyne is class, but his style is not best suited for the wings.

The thing is, as far as I can see de Bruyne is with City since a couple of months and has either scored or assisted in pretty much every game he played for them.
He IS already having an impact.
He obviously didn't on Sunday, so somebody watches that game and makes a thread :facepalm:

Majority of games he has been brilliant. Stupid thread, market is like this nowadays. If you want to talk about overpricing, then you can make a case about for lot of players.

Just for a match...
So far his impact was very good, basically if they will go on in CL it's because of him . And it means the money spent for him is compensated easily from CL money.
For me his best quality is the effectiveness, the being concrete.
Basically he is not esthetically pleasing doesn't catch you the eye as Hazard but  he is really effective and this year easily more than his  fellow countryman

Exactly Robes. He's an end product machine.

Yep. That's the thing when I try to explain to others why I like KdB better than Hazard. Hazard is flashy, he is smart and he opens up a lot of space but KdB is direct, intelligent and I find makes much more of the ball when he has it and when he's involved in the play.

Look at his body of work and not one game and anyone can see in today's day and age of endless amounts of money that if you can afford to buy him, then you buy him. He would likely start in any team in the world.

I haven't seen too much of him at City but from what I have seen he's been pretty good.

I prefer to wait until the end of the season to judge a player who's just moved. I find it's slightly more reliable than watching a game or maybe two.

Free_cat you should give some credit to Rojo, he basically nullified De Bruyne to ghost status.

And I agree about Martial, looked the best player on the pitch on Sunday. Love this kid.

Been playing well before this game, dont understand the criticism.

Yeah isnt an 80m player? Alright but Man City dont give a f if its 8m or 80.

Also, Liverpool fans STILL holding on to the notion Sterling isnt good?

no this is the type of signing that helps inflate the market - not a by-product of one.

City played much better with the set-piece assist-merchant on the bench. Good game from Navas and Sterling, good wingers who can drible and didn't cost 80 miliom euro.

anyone else thinks this free_cat crusade is really bizarre?

While we're on topic, surely the worst 80m player is Di Maria hmm

You are right, Di Maria was around 75. However he is miles above De Bruyne.

I did and great game from Sterling and ok from Navas.

Another question about De Bruyne, how is he so red? I don't think I've ever seen someone redder than him. He plays 10 minutes and turns into a tomato.

Still can't shoot or dribble just yet.

Well worth the 50mil though, he can become better than good if he can improve in those areas, 50 mil over his life span will be nothing.
