There's a certain hollowness to City's legends, perhaps that's why the statue is full of holes.

It's like they are trying to create a legacy rather than letting it develop naturally.

Would United ever build a statue of Rooney?

I took the wrong career path clearly. It seems anyone can get paid bucket loads to create a sculpture of someone that looks nothing like them.

Add to the fact its looks fecking hideous in general.

This is a bit much for Kroos. He didn't even play for City.

Where's the statue of Kaka anyway?

He's great but surely you'll end up with too many if you keep accumulating players of huge influence like him? Surely you wait for a Ronaldo-at-Madrid type career until you make one of these.

Not a fan of exalting human beings like this, anyway. Doesn't matter who it is

Just shows how false the whole club is.

To give Kompany, Silva and now Aguero a statue, just pathetic really!!

At the rate they're going, the stadium is going to look like China's Terracotta warrior statues.

What happened to making statues out of bronze? This is shit. You can't even see any facial features.

City just trying to seem relevant by being able to have statues outside their ground of people who were actually good.

Reminds me of them making club legend Vieira an ambassador.

Last couple of years he was more of a FIFA streamer rather than a football player.

Why does it feel everything city do is them trying to imitate what bigger and more credible clubs do? It's crazy how they can have so much success on the field and yet off it they remain so......naff.

Until recently Patrick Vieira was their ambassador/most recognisable alumni. Remember his halcyon days in a City shirt? It turns out you can actually buy history as well as trophies.

The sad thing is, look at all the kids now starting to support City. Sports washing will ultimately work given time and money (and leeches like the Glazers handicapping your rivals)

Like getting Martin Tyler to try and recreate the Aguerooooo moment when he left City? They're so desperate to create history, they're really forcing it. And the stupid thing is, if they just let their football do the talking they'd be fine. But years of trauma will have an effect won't it.

Brutal :lol:

Although Kroos played decent, after throwing them out of the CL it would've made more sense to build a statue in honor of Benzema.

I don't understand why statues are so bad now? I get that they won't be like marbles in Rome, but shouldn't they capture what the human being looks like?

The only recent football stadium related statues I've been impressed with are Arsenals.
