      Well in Nat, a better player than I have given you credit for.

      Love the guy. Doesn't try anything fancy that gets him in trouble and just keeps it simple and steady.

      Played a really good game. Where some players are limited by their ability to read the game, I think his only limitation is his skill. He’s no Virgil or Joe skill wise but he knows where and what he’s supposed to do. He just doesn’t always have the skill to pull it off. Thought he had one of his better games. Well done.

      Compared to Rhys the other week what I noticed was how he stood up and jockeyed players much better.

      I think he's done a good job every time he's played.

      Correct. He simply doesn't have the skill to run the ball up field and dribble past midfielders like Matip, or make the long pass like Virgil, but the good thing is he realizes that so doesn't try to do things that get him in trouble. See ball, clear ball. That's his game and he has done it well whenever he's played.

      Done well last couple of games.

      The difference in age between Rhys and him shows. Nat seems to know his body, knows his limitations a lot better and therefore just sticks to what he's good at. He's dominant in the air and not afraid to put his foot in. Yep he's weak on the ball but as long as the players around him know that and adjust accordingly then we can deal with that.

      Not sure he's the man for a game such as City but he's got to be the man alongside a Fab/Hendo for games like the one today. Been solid enough to deserve it.

      Hes played HIS game each time he's gotten a run, and in my opinion, hasn't really put a foot wrong. Not a bad 4th choice CB who can contribute to this team going forward

      Good solid performance think he should be way ahead of Williams.  Rhys is not ready last game he made Rashford look like Thiery Henry the kid might make it but at this moment of time he's isn't nearly ready.   This kid deserves opportunities this season as like most have said he hasn't hardly put a foot wrong in the games he has had and they have been spaced out. So it's not like he has built form.  He is just more ready for this level.

      Im hoping Fab and Matip will be lining up against City.

      This game suited you perfectly and you didn't put a foot wrong.

      I'm wondering what the EPL and Euro registrations are going to be after tomorrow, including allowances for the new boy and Nat. Also wondering if we will see any of Virgil, Joe or Joel this season.

      Too be fair Ian every time he's played he's been pretty solid. With all the current injuries I think I'd play him more often based on what I've seen...... Hang on a min.,  :roll: I take that back. Nearly forgot I'm a manc.  :lmao: He's sh*te  :f_whistle:

      Brilliant performance again from Nat. Absolute Rock at the back just like he was in the home fixture earlier this season. YNWA

      I think he does have the ability to play that pass and I think he is a brilliant centre back but with cover maybe coming in will he want to stay.

      Yeh it is going to be interesting.    I think Nat deserves to be in the squad.  would removing Gomez be enough or are we going to have to take Adrian out?

      Last year I think we registered two fewer than allowed.  Someone also said Kabal doesn't have to be registered bcz he is U-21. Not sure

      Mmm I suppose we will get the answers with rumours that we might even get 2 players.  But like you say we will get may be an indicator of the realistic chance of either Gomez and VVD playing again this season when the final squad is decided.
