Good player.

On the big games I think Smalling is a better partner for him, actually i think that should be the long term partnership.

I think that was the plan. Then Smalling got suspended and Blind started playing so well he became undropppable.

And how exactly did Bailly fare?

That is precisely my point, because Sanchez, Hazard, Aguero, Costa, even a fit Sturridge, or Kane; aren't that far behind those La Liga stars...
That's when to truly assess Bailly...


He had a hard time his first season at Espanyol but midway into his second season, he was holding his own.

But I agree with you that the Man U defense overall will likley suffer against City


That's not quite true :biggrin: :biggrin:

But I'm quite happy for brother Bailly that so many are rooting for him, on and off the pitch...Hoping they'll be there when the rough times set in...

I have never understood why Africans are so sensitive to criticism. When you criticize an African it is because:

- you are against him and you want to PHD
- against his tribe
- against his family
- you never see anything good in anyone
- who are you and what are you
- afterall, what have u done yourself?
- is he the only one?

I have a feeling that very soon Jose will ask Smalling to appear at CD instead of Blind.

Maybe it's one of those games where we needed to score first and work them from there.
Anyway i think it's nice to have the option of Blind Smalling, and then also Jones and Fosu Mensah possibly for the future.

But I am sold on Bailly, good buy, exactly what we needed

The irony, esp from watching today, is that the real stalwart in the United defence is Blind..The Ivorien has the WWF highlights and dominates the press clips.

Both positionally, awareness of movements and key pass delivery from defence, the Dutchman is the key player...

Today City simply passed around Bailly and he had little influence, save for the three last ditch tackles, all huge; one on Fernandinho and two on KDB, the 2nd coming at a time the Belgian was clearly gassed.

One thing Bailly has always had is recovery...I like the player; advocated for him when the ex-Ivorien coach was fooling around with Sekou Bamba...

...and Tuanzebe in the youth team (Rojo even if the team has an LVG-esque injury crisis).

I imagine this never applies to Americans? Europeans, South Americans? or Asians? The sad part of this is that your post actually proves how ignorant of a person you are. Not many people are well to do,so I cant expect you to have traveled around the world. But, many times, poor people still endeavor to educate themselves.

Guys, any update on Samuel Umtiti @ Barcelona? we were told "Our" Eric will be a benchwarmer and sent on loan, while Samuel Umpity Dumpity will be dominating in Mess Ke Un Club.


Is anyone ever going to update us on Samuel Umpity Dumpity? :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Spot on.
Besides, Bailly was at fault for the goal. He lost the key header to our Kelechi. But he will learn like all foreign CBs do with those long balls.

:rotf: :rotf: Sure. I won't even dare mention it to my Dutch mates because they'll roll around laughing for the rest of the day.

The real stalwart in the United defence is Blind. :rotf: Lol. Good to know there are EPL fans that actually overrate Blind.

The United defence was made to look good against bad to mediocre opposition. They faced a big team and the big team went after the weak link. For good reason...because he's the weak link not the "real stalwart". :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:
