so sterling at left back, and Jesus at centre back????

I just seen that on my FB feed. Guess what City will be doing at the January window? I know all clubs go though injuries but this is getting a bid ridiculous.

Maybe man city will show some mercy and field a weakened team containing only English players ... don’t think they have enough though even in their youth systrem

looks like they have six if you count their third and fourth choice goalies

Tommy Doyle is Mike Doyle’s grandson... mike played for man city when they played proper footie and fielded up to 11 english players at a time...

In the 1970 league cup final he played in a side of 10 Englishman and a Scotsman... one of his teammates is glyn pardoe who is also young Tommy’s grandfather...

The scorers for man city that day were Doyle and pardoe .. its a funny old world

Wait a minute, so Tommy's father and Grandfather played at the same time? That doesn't happen in sports much, especially football I would think? 

I know in Baseball - we had the Griffey's and in Hockey we had Howe's, but off the top of my head thats it.

Moises played for Montreal when Felipe managed. The others were all at different times AFAIK. The scenario in the post that started this was just grandfathers at the same club.
