Needs a break   id suggest a holiday off in Greece or something but...

Harry Maguire is convinced he has a robust defence for this week’s trial in Greece.... Maguire is now likely to not to face a prison sentence even if convicted as the case has been downgraded to a “mi

I think his emergence in the england set up a few years ago has led people to believe he was a better player than he was. My main issues are his lack of acceleration and he doesn't seem to have the positional awareness to make up for it. Also i see nothing in him that warrants being awarded the captaincy. No sign of leadership capabilities, no passion just the usual excuses when he has to justify a bad performance. As captain and centre half he has to bear some of the blame for the lack of organization at the back. One example was AWB being  caught out of position badly for the first goal. This kind of lapse has happened repeatedly this season. A true captain would get stuck into someone for such mistakes. The other players have to respect him and fear him.

I think his recent performances have been going under the radar a little. He's looked a lot more confident on the ball, better passing out from the back, and a lot more assured in defence. Granted, he does still have the occasional moment of clumsiness every now and then, but his performances have definitely improved over the past month.

Ruben Dias has been very impressive for City so far.

Similar profile to Maguire.

That's what we should expect for the money spent.

van Dijk, Laporte and Dias are three CBs we missed out on.

Maguire isn't terrible. He's just an awkward looking mofo. Not the most elegant.

A bit disagree regarding Maguire .  Actually he built an impression for a class player at Leicester  where the team tactics  were more defensive oriented with more men involved and   well packed   .

Even Stones is more useful for City then Maguire for  United. At least Stones scored an important goal ,while Maguire wasted good cross last game at 0:0 .

Another very good game from him tbh. 

This is his bread and butter. He played in League One and The Championship for years. Seen it before.

Maguire would take a game against Barnes and Wood every time if you offered it to him, as opposed to marking small, explosive stickers with quick feet.

But yeah, he did play well.

Having to defend his box against high balls is his bread and butter, so he's always going to do well in that type of game. 

He did do quite well on the ground as well tbf, but he wasn't exactly up against the quickest and most skilful strikers which is when he really struggles.
