Not all of us.
Much as I dislike seeing his name on the team sheet, I'm not sure he could do any worse than Young at the moment. If he'd not leaving in the window then give him a few games to see if he can grab the spot for the rest of the sesson.
Then buy a new right back ffs
Ahhhhhh, peace and quiet, bliss
We need to give this man some game time and he should be rotated with Dalot.
At least Darmian will give us that defensive stability unlike Young who gives away a goal or two each game
Apparently we tried to offer him a 4 year deal and he told us to get fecked
Would take him now till the end of the season over Young
4 years, that's unreal. Are we fine with paying salaries to someone who play less than 10 matches a season ? If that's true then the stupidity of us knows no bounds.
Look at us, coming crawling back to Darmian
Do you guys believe everything?
Same as always. People believe negative stories and don't believe positive ones.
I'd be happy to see him back in the team for a bit. If nothing more its one less position we have to worry about costing us goals.
Wouldn't mind seeing him either. He's good defensively.
He's wasted a big part of his career here really. Can't see him playing even with our suspensions.
If he's fit and we're playing a back four then I'd pick him against Barca. Young can't keep possession, Dalot can't defend and I don't know what the situation is with Valencia any more.
We're actually in a position where we'd prefer Darmian to play against Barcelona because our other options are that bad
Darmian really isn't that bad. Opinion of him seems to get lower and lower each passing week.
Agreed. It's how the Caf is - there's always one, often two players who who get everyones' frustrations dumped on them for, as in Darmian's case, reasons which are really nothing to do with them but calling out Darmian is fashionable.
FFS, he's played just four times this season plus two sub appearances and not at all since January.... We lost just one of those six - at Anfield.
Five defeats in our past seven matches, including as poor a performance as we've had all season on Wednesday in Camp Nou is hardly Darmian's fault.
Unless he's not fit then it seems strange to split a functioning centre back partnership by shoving one out to right back.
Absolutely hilarious on that second goal. Who was he running towards?
So many are quit to cite his pure existence as some sort of ‘everything that is wrong with the club’ example but I don’t see it. Bought relatively cheap, will fetch relatively little, and rarely plays anyway. Today he came in and was very impressive. Confident on the ball, passed out from the back well and made tackles.
Thought he done well considering it was his 7th app of the season at this stage vs Man City
Some lucky Italian side is going to pick up a decent player who played very well in that league for cheap this summer. Fantastic personality as well. You've never heard him moaning about lack of game time in the press and you never come away thinking he could have done more effort wise.
Did okay I thought. Quite like him even if he’s not the best
Could have done more to block that sane shot .
Considering how infrequently he plays, he always comes in and puts in a fairly solid performance! Wonder why he doesn't play more?!
Surprise surprise when asked to actually defend he's pretty damn good at it.
Better RCB than Bailly
Is he gonna stay on the basis that he's less shit than others ?
Still, that was not too shabby from him in some moments.
I like him, great pro who basically gets brought in from the cold randomly after 3 months without a game to play one of the hardest games on the fixture list, and for the most part he did fine, he could have been quicker to Sane but that goal is all on Dave. I'm not saying we should keep him but I have time for him as a person in terms of his solidness and his attitude.
Slightly better than shit.
He was better than Smalling which begs the question why didn't he start against Everton?
He played well considering how few games he has had, then for some reason did multiple questionable things for the Sane goal.
He was horrific for the second goal.
Why was he played? To gather a few hundred more euros of value before finally someone takes him?
I don't understand how he never makes the squad tbh. Best squad player pro I've seen since Quinton Fortune
Think he did fine.
Tell him to only defend and he'll do a fine job.
But him losing vs Sane once showed where his level is -- squad player.
I think that's the only "fault" he did today, so no complain from me.
5-defenders system to negate City's attacks.
I rather have Darmian play than Rojo and Jones tbh.
Darmian is usually more reliable in defend.
This. We started Lindeloff against Bernard who is very skilled and pacy. Dalot was covering a physically imposing Richardson
Neville: When was the last time he played? Three months ago
Keano: There’s a reason for that
"Why did play"?
- Jones injured. again
- Bailly injured and shit anyway
- Rojo a worse defender than my deceased granddad. post-death
- Dalot has been really underwhelming on his defensive side
...that's why. We have a couple of dead weight CBs and shit RBs, lads. He might be shite too, but he's arguably marginally better than the other dross sitting on the bench today.
If you think Dalot wouldn't have been skinned by Sterling and later on Sane, you've been watching a different player to me.
I thought he played well today for the most part. The only thing that stands out is he got caught chasing the wrong man on Sane's goal. Both him and Smalling went after Aguero's run and that should have just been Smalling and Darmien should have stayed with Sane. With that being said, De Gea has to make that save...
I don't get this situation. I've felt there's a way better player in Darmian than we've been allowed to see. Could it be that his lack of performances this season might be due to some sort of clause where we pay significantly more of his transfer fee as a future instalment based on appearances? If we know we want to sell him, maybe the club don't want to risk triggering that future instalment. I could be way off base. Considering how poor we've looked at RB this season, I don't see how Darmian hasn't had more chances. Another possibility could be that he's had some sort of personal issue. Odd.
