    He should win player of the year if City win the league, there are others on the same level but he deserves the award for the career he’s had

    That has to be Alan Shearer. The actual number of goals, mostly whilst playing for clubs with no hope of challenging for the title.

    Just want to see Scholes hit a volley.
    He's made for scoring goals in the final third and he does it so well. That hurtful "Aguerooo" moment was incredible for him too. I hate the guy irrationally but can't deny his skills.

    Its a hard one to call for me. Shearer's stats are worse but as you say, he played for a side the equivalent of modern Spurs/Liverpool and was never at the best club in the league. Even at Blackburn they only really had a couple of seasons.

    It has to be said, he is just a phenomenal goalscorer, that effort from outside the box today was incredible. He scores all types of goals and is a willing worker for the team, which makes him so valuable.

    Aguero has 43 goals in 63 games against the top six, and i've heard people thinking its close between him and Kane. Aguero is so clear of Kane is not even funny. at this point the argument is if he's the best striker ever in the premier league

    That goal was absurd. No idea how he managed to get so much power when under that much pressure and seemingly off balance.

    Don't understand why it's never happened for him with Argentina.

    Last WC in fairnes he scored twice and Sampaoli completely lost his mind but all the other tournaments, particularly the Copa America's he's played and not made much impact in.

    Remember the narrative is Messi plays with 10 donkeys at international level.

    One of the best finishers I’ve ever seen. Top class.

    Only behind Henry in terms of greatest EPL strikers imo. Best big game player in the league and probably in the last 10 years in England and it’s not even close.

    Who's the mastermind behind City's football development? They bought players like Aguero and Silva a long time ago. We spent 70m on Lukaku.

    And last time half the people said they'd prefer Firmino over Agüero in a combined City/Pool first XI :lol:

    City's team is just stacked with world-class players, it's unreal.

    Could've done it for a big team but decided to stay at City his whole career instead.

    When he declines City will really feel it, he carry’s them despite having so many other top players. That speaks volumes.

    Try getting someone of Aguero or Silva’s ability in today’s market. They’d both be priced well over £100m+ isn’t it? Not really comparable to what we spent on Lukaku.

    But on point, yeah, been 2 amazing buys by City. Though in fairness, they weren’t exactly “unknown” quantities. They were both highly rated and tons on here would have liked us to sign either/both. Was it during our “no value in the market” years as well?

    Indeed, and as I type, we now have a better goal difference than Chelsea. One of the few City games I’ve really enjoyed, they have been truly outstanding and have made Chelsea look very ordinary.

    Because he actually plays with 10 donkeys or close to it.

    Aguero vastly underperforms with Argentina and so many of their stars. That’s despite having a lot of space to work in given the attention Messi gets and being setup by Messi.

    Yet they can’t make it happen.
    It doesn’t matter what they are on paper or how they performs at their clubs, when they, including Aguero, can’t make it happen in the national team.

    There's something to be said about retiring as a club's best ever player and top goalscorer. Plus he's won a fair few titles there.

    Just saw that he's 30. Feels like he's been around for aeons.

    Well for Copa America this summer it should be Aguero upfront with Messi and Dybala floating off him. Icardi reserve on the bench.

    Can't do much about their lack of decent defenders and midfielders of course.

    I think City fans take David Silva as their best player. But obviously that's subjective.

    He could've played for Real or Barca. Being City's top goalscorer doesn't hold the same weight imo. Rooney is United all time too scorer. Bigger achievement imo.

    If Aguero keeps it up he'll get the record in 150 games less than Shearer.

    Newcastle and Blackburn were title challengers and winners at various times, Blackburn were the original plastic club.

    Different player to Henry.
    Aguero is the most natural box finisher in PL history. Completely instinctive and always knows where the target is.

    Worth his weight in gold to City. Almost literally.
    Quite outstanding.

    We see it differently then. The fact that him and Silva stayed at City and made them what they are makes me respect them more, to be honest. It's a boost to their legacy, not a detriment. I think more players should do it.

    I agree with your sentiment. But playing devils advocate you could argue the same about Aguero with A.Madrid.

    He has. It's his 8th season for City. I don't know much about their history but surely he'll be one of their biggest legends.

    Aguero or RVN perhaps better debate?

    Funnily enough City probably would not have bought Aguero had Alexis Sanchez not chosen Pep's Barcelona instead.
    He was our fall back option in that transfer window.
    Lucky for us.

    They were. City wasn’t interested in selling and he seems like a loyal guy. A bit like Ribery at Bayern (and yes, Kun probably had the better career).
