Aguero Better Than Bergkamp? You are kidding, right?
TalkSport, or TalkShit as I choose to address them from now on have reached yet another low.
Just when I thought they could not do worse that they already have, Adrian Durham or whatever his name his wrote a laughable piece, one that compares Arsenal’s Invincibles to Man City’s current squad.
I read this article and it is obvious that this man has not even the slightest clue what he is writing about.
He picked Joe Hart over Jens Lehmann because Hart is “younger and more reliable”, but chose Campbell over Lescott and rightly so. I mean, no one can argue that an over-priced average defender is better than one of the best centre backs of his era.
Micah Richards was selected over Lauren because Richards “was inspirational in City’s 6-1 demolition of rivals United”, a game which lasted only 90 minutes. Lauren was consistent over years, Adrian!
Arsenal’s Ashley Cole beat City’s Gael Clichy as weird as that sounds. Both lads were actually Gunners in 03/04 so whichever way you look at it, we win. Durham however thinks Kompany’s “reliability and leadership skills” edge him over the Kolo Toure that play in the Invincibles team. Really?
He picked Silva over Ljunberg and I’ll let him have that just because the Spaniard has demonstrated his class. But to rate Yaya Toure over Gilberto Silva simply because “Gilberto’s talents might have gone under the radar” is extremely poor journalism. Gilberto is that player whose worth we didn’t realize until he started missing games.
Not even Durham is silly enough to pick Milner over Pires, or Dzeko over Henry. I however lost respect for Adrian Durham when he chose Aguero over Dennis Bergkamp!
Who does that? DB10 of 2003/04 is light years ahead of the current El Kun in all ramifications. This is not taking anything away from Aguero’s great start to life in the EPL, but some comparisons just do not make sense.
Aguero isn’t even the best striker in the League! He isn’t better than Robin Van Persie, yet some journalist deems it fit to compare him to DB10? One can only wonder what goes on in some people heads.
All these being said, we cannot ignore the fact that Man City have had an amazing start this season and going unbeaten is not completely out of sight.
But one thing that makes ours special, our first team cost just £47.8m, please call me when Man City (or any other team for that matter) achieves the same feat with a squad that expensive!
See you in the comments!
