    It's scary to think Foden could go on to be a greater player than the greatest to do it for the club, David Silva. He's quicker, just as skillful, more of a goal threat, we are so lucky to have Phil.

    He inherited that composure and skill from his uncle. Rolo on Bridge Hall Estate in the 90’s was something to watch.

    If Foden scores the winner in the UCL final, he will undoubtedly at the age of only 21, go down as a ManCity legend! Credit to him, for staying grounded and trusting Pep's player management. He could've followed the likes of Diaz, Sancho and pursued on an alternative process! Credit to Pep also for managing Foden exceptionally and the outcome has turned out to be the best possible result for both the player, club and England national team! Aswell as for football fans in General who will be treated to a special talent showcasing his art for the next decade+

Once silva and sane left , that really opened up room for his development and im so proud to see him flourish . he has kept big name players out the team this season , watching him score in the u17 world cup final given player of the tournament to now leading his boyhood club into our first CL final is honestly a dream come true for any blue rn . Go on Phil ,

    Don't forget Sancho. Dortmund recalled him in the group stage of the U17 World Cup because he was that good. Sancho, Foden and Bellingham are elite talents; I hope they all play this summer.
