      got a feeling he is going to be in the mood for a clean sheet tonight against his old team mates. He makes the game look far too easy and without having a pop at Matip I think many a forum member could play alongside him and look half decent.

      Matip has been much better than "decent" for a while now.

      But Matip is decent, as he's been proving ???

      That's like saying I'm not racist but...
      You are having a pop regardless of how it's worded.


      Virgil takes the pressure off the player alongside him but he can't make a player look better than he is, the player has to do that himself. Pressure or no pressure, the player is either decent or he isn't, nobody else is in control of that.

      how am I having a pop its a feckin joke ffs.This place is getting more bizarre by the game. You don't get to say what is behind my post and trying to read things is clearly beyond you.
      what a great start to the night

      How is any part of that a joke about Matip exactly?

      Yet you can dismiss everyone's opinion.

      You know you were having a pop.

      Loved his post match interview after the Porto game.

      He said something along the lines of 9 games to go, hopefully we win them all and then can enjoy a very rewarding Holiday.

      Great to see the lads thinking of 9 games left and not just the 5 PL games.

      Come on Boys, we can WIN BOTH!

      If he isn’t player of the year in the league, it’s surely rigged.

      He's so good he's made me better at football just by watching him.
      I no longer fly into tackles like a horny Titus Bramble, I always do what VVD does and just stand them and it actually works....who knew?

      Seriously though how anyone can say he isn't the best CB is madness. Clearly don't watch him every week!

      Agreed. But if city win the league / champions league then it’ll be one of their players, probably Sterling.

      Pretty sure Sterling was fairly anonymous first half of the season, it’s only been the last couple of months he’s been getting a load of goals and suddenly full of hype. Virgil has been consistent over the entire season.

      It's Sterling, I would bet my life on it too. With all that has gone on with him outside of football, he will 100000% win it.

      If we’re talking PFA player of the year then isn’t that usually decided before the end of the season. I’m sure the award ceremony was in April last year so should be upon us soon.

      On purely footballing terms then there shouldn’t be any question that Van Dijk wins the award but inevitably people will look at ‘off the field’ events and this will influence people’s votes. I think Sterling has handled himself very well both and off the field so he has every chance of winning it.

      It's got to be VVD way ahead of Sterling for me. Sterling has had a fantastic season, but no more than Salah, Mane or Aguero. In addition, getting 17 pl goals (5th down the list) is an easier accomplishment for a top class player in a team like City.

      VVD however has been pure consistency and has single handedly turned our defence from leaking goals to the best defence in the league - I'm aware of the form of those around him but it's his leadership and organisational skills that has made the difference to our season.

      You can imagine pretty much every forward in the league voting for him after playing against us to be fair!

      My mate said he'd heard a stat which said Virg hasn't been dribbled past in a 1 on 1 all season. Doesn't surprise me.

      You have to be pretty special to get the PFA award as a defender, aren't too many on that list, particularly in recent years. Well deserved
