Ed001 when I saw you say we were interested in Nastasic I was pretty surprised. Left sided centre back, sure. But his time at City was underwhelming. Had a look into his season with Schalke though. Make of this what you will.

With Nastasic: (23 games)
13 wins, 5 draws, 5 defeats
19 goals conceded

Without Nastasic: (10 games)
3 wins, 2 draws, 5 defeats
12 goals conceded

Just to ease any injury concerns by the way only 4 of the games he missed were injury related.

Not going to say that these stats prove anything, but it does point towards a positive influence from Nastasic on his Schalke team. It has somewhat eased my concerns but I still remember the 20 year old Bambi on ice that didn't even look comfortable next to Kompany!

I must admit I haven't watched Schalke at all this season seeing as the Europa/ Champions League have sold their souls as well now. Has anybody on here seen them at all this season, and be willing to give on opinion?

{Ed001's Note - he has come a long way since he left City and got to a club with proper coaching.}

Agree0 Disagree1

I actually never saw him as bad tbh. Bambi on ice? he's a very techinal cb. super good on the ball.

Think part of the problem was he was playing alongaide savic (who unlike now was terrible then)

Times a great thing with young players.

City are spending 50 mil near enouvh on cbs each summer and the two thwy let go savic and natastic. One is playing for athletico madrid and the ither could he coming back into a rivals defence.

Maybe give our young olayers a little bit more time 😉.

Given that savic left as soon as nastasic arrived, i imagine it would have been hard for them to struggle alongside one another🙃🙃

Nastasic is a good shout. Has been in england before, has had the character to improve his game in the same way as alderweireld, probably speaks a fair bit of german and english - seems like an ideal candidate, especially being left footed to play alongside matip.

I'd personally love us to look at tah or martinez as well, and wouldn't rule out scott dann. I know he is getting on and many will say he isn't good enough but i feel liverpool taking a chance on him could give us the solidity and character we need sorely in our defence.

If it were me, I would try and tempt Lucas Hernandez with a pay rise and first team football.

Great left centre back with Champions League experience at only 21. Probably be massively expensive though, and no doubt LFC isn't Interested.

{Ed002's Note - Zero interest and won't be moving to Liverpool.}

27 Feb 2017 12:11:01
Thought as much Ed002 haha, cheers for clarifying anyway.

27 Feb 2017 12:38:37
City are developing quite a record for destroy young talented CBs, they give them no time to settle, mature and learn, just look at the list of players, Boateng, Nastasic, Savic, Mangala, and I'm certain Stones will be added to that list.

27 Feb 2017 12:47:11
If the context of the post is wether we are brining a new CB. I would highly doubt it tbh. Much will depend on whether the club is in talks over a new deal with Lovren then we can put this one off permanently.

27 Feb 2017 15:20:36
Nastasic wasn't even that bad of a player for City, barely got a decent run of games and he was what 19 at the time, being hrown in when Kompany was injured and often having to play alongside Lescott the donkey.

27 Feb 2017 16:03:16
True scarface except stones isn't talented in the slightest imo.

27 Feb 2017 16:11:34
FLMAO Schalke are the new Southampton.
We no where have 2 feeder clubs 👍.

Matip, Kolasinac, Nastasic.

I'm not complaining, Nastasic and Kolasinac would be great signings IMO.

27 Feb 2017 21:13:18
Why can't it be both, Harry? We can bring in a CB and still give Lovren a new contract. Nastasic is a very good shout and is very experienced and talented even during his City days. If we are interested in him then I say, give it a go. He is very calm and cool in possession, great passer out of the back and has definitely improved playing alongside Naldo at Schalke.

What about Gomez and Klavan? Do you need 5 CB's at the club mate?
