Have they raised the bar? As I say it remains to be seen whether they get the German model of De Bruyne or the less impressive Chelsea model of him but it wasn't an area they were weak in anyway.I presume you didn't see City's bench yesterday btw?
What makes you think they'll get the Chelsea model of him? In the 18 months since he left he's been playing regular football, was player of the year and played at a world cup. Can we not assume he's improved since he left Chelsea?
Yeah i did see their bench, a few kids there but let's not forget they have Otamendi and de Bruyne to come into the side plus the likes of Bony, Zabaleta and Clichy to return from injury. They're very strong.
"Belgium have become the first European team and the fifth team overall to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia with a 2-1 win over Greece on Sunday...they will qualify top of Europe’s Group H on 22 points, despite there being two games still to play...Overall, Roberto Martinez’s side have notched up an impressive 35 goals, conceding just three in the process, and have not been bested in a World Cup qualifier since 2009..."
dr handjob, point me at a Belgium fan who can tell me about de Bruyne going missing

De Bruyne needs to do it for 4 to 5 seasons before he can be classed as a top player

In order to to be classed as a top player you need to play at the top winning back to back league titles and European Cups , these days a guy has 1 or 2 seasons of doing well and people start saying that they are great the best thing since sliced bread its truly laughable and completely ridiculous.
wild guess here,you a utd fan?
