Good age, size and pacey.....can't see it mentioned anywhere if he does well and wants to stay, is there an option to buy ?

Seems clumsy but with decent balance - I know that seems a contradiction - but watch the vid.


Also...    the top result when you type his name into YouTube is 'Eliaquim Mangala Mistakes'   so....


hope he does well!
    

I'm only here for the cladding/Bramley Moore Dock updates

I can't believe City paid 42m for him myself.

Probably got fleeced as it was City and the selling club knew they had the money, bit like us with Sig last year.

Think Distin, and you won't be far off. Ok, left sided, pacey enough, but not brilliant on the ball with a few mistakes in him. A slight improvement on Williams, Jags and dare I say Keane, but an improvement nonetheless. I wish him luck, but you would hope we will sign a decent, young, centre back in the Summer AFTER securing a LB of course.

We have Keane and Holgate for the young, decent centre back aspect. You'd like to hope the next manager comes in and works with/improves those two instead of us becoming a chequebook club from here on in.

I'll say it again... one of the most sought after defenders in world football when they signed him.

I'm so glad I missed it the first time.

Not expecting much tbh, don't think he's the sort of CB we should have been going for and think Holgate despite being the only decent footballer will be pushed out for Mangala, Keane, Jagielka and Williams.

Hes the most expensive player - in terms of what another club has paid - that weve ever brought to the club.

But we paid more for Sigurdsson.  And have sold 2 players for more.

Reckon without the technical rigours of a pep defence he might do well. We dont really have a big physical cb and havent since Distin. Keane the closest and hes slow with a poor turning circle.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I must admit even my mates who are City fans have ridiculed him as he does look totally uncoordinated and all over the place at times but he's big, strong and quick so once he gets his head right, like Yobo, he's probably a very good no nonsense defender.
