My mind is always cast back to Sterling. I asked, a general question, who should we buy to replace him? One 'watcher' said use Ibe - he is better anyhow and he'll save "US" a fortune... I sh*t you not.
To be fair to Munch he did say "for his size" and personally I've always thought Emre had a high top speed. The problem in the past was that it just took him a while to get there, the first few yards I would have said were cumbersome and his turning circle was comparable to an oil tanker.
That wasn't the case against City though, he looked to me like his acceleration had gone up a few notches and his agility also looked considerably higher than in recent times. I put this down to the slimmer frame he seemed to be carrying and of course some of it could be to do with the calf injury healing up. It also wasn't just against Toure where he looked this quick, it was in recovery and in ball carrying, a much improved display that I want to see so much more of because for the first time in a long time I saw the Emre that could fill that role in the team for many years to come.
Now he has to do this consistently and not just in one game before we go overboard (putting this in because someone will no doubt reply with it otherwise) but I was massively impressed with his performance.
