Thread: Man City interested in City youngster.

  1. #1

    Man City interested in City youngster.

    Have we seen the summer's most unlikely transfer rumour on the day after the old season ended?

    Isn’t he a bit old ( 20 ) if he’s that good?

    Hopefully he becomes a regular first team player for City next year - Cardiff City that is!

    If he is that good why havenít we been playing him especially instead of our centre back Manga!

    I thought Coxe was a right back ?
    If thatís the case start playing him. It is a position we have needed to fill for some time.

    I thought they were banned from signing youngsters? Or was that Chelsea?

    He's definately not a Warnock type of player, as that article says he needs developing. We are more likely to sign a 33 year old journeyman on a 5-year contract.

    He obviously isn't that good or Warnock would have played him

    Warnock give a youngster a game? Don't be daft.

    No its Chelsea. Man city and all premier clubs cannot sign players under a certain age unless they live i think it's 100 miles from man city stadium as he is 20 I cannot see why they cannot sign him!

    He can play on either side as a full back or wing back, but he's probably more effective on the right.

    Coxe is a modern day full back with the stamina and strength to get up and down his side of the pitch for ninety minutes and, as such, doesn't strike me as the sort of player our manager prefers to have in that position.

    I'm a fan of Coxe and believe that he should have had more first team experience by now, but it does surprise me that no one seems to have come in to take him on loan - with it being nearly two years since his sole first team appearance, there has to be a real danger of him stagnating in his early twenties at Cardiff just like so many others have done.

    It's now or never for him. I just don't think this story adds up, unless the club have blocked loan approaches how can Man City rate him while L1/2 clubs not want him on loan? If it is true, hopefully he gets given a shot in pre season.

    Yes, I see from that article that "Those inside the Wales Under-21s camp believe the full-back is more than capable of performing to at least a Championship standard".

    The WOL article about Neil staying mentions buying a new right back, why not give Coxe a chance?

    Because he does not trust youngsters.

    Exactly.

    Re: Man City interested in City youngster.

    There was an interesting interview with Stuart Webber, the technical director of Norwich the other day.
    Amongst other things he said that he prefers young players, as where an experienced player will run around an obstacle, young guys will run through walls for you.
    He went on to say that given the nature of the championship, most of the teams who go up have the same approach - unless you have a special manager like Neil Warnock, who does it with older guys.

    He's an interesting character, was at Huddersfield in recruitment when they went up, and is now strongly linked with a move to Southampton.
    I think it is definitely a role that we really need to push on and fill

    Re: Man City interested in City youngster.

    There is every chance that he will be used next season, maybe it is the perfect chance, division and timing for him to get in the squad and force himself in.
    I don't buy into Warnock not playing him due to his age. If he feels he can trust the lad to take care of the responsibilities put on a player given the game plan and position he takes on the field then he will play him.
    Warnock is all about responsibility on the pitch over imagination or flair. If the lad can perform the job asked of him then he will play, that is first and foremost. If he is capable of doing that then he will have the chance to showcase the more enterprising assets to his game.

    There are some talented youngsters at the Club but our Young Player of the Year was Callum Paterson who is nearly 25.
    Neil has many qualities but trusting youngsters, no matter how talented, isn't one of them.

    I would be shocked to the core if that happens.
    If Peltier is injured he will move Manga to full back and bring Bamba back in.
    Can you confirm any City youngster that has been payed since Warnock arrived.

    Apart from Victor Moses

    Gringo posted links to interviews with him while he was with Huddersfield and Norwich on here a few weeks ago and they were very impressive - would love to have someone like that working for us who could "join up" things so that youth development and recruitment would be singing from the same hymn sheet so to speak, because the impression created over a decade or so at Cardiff is that the one doesn't know what the other is doing.

    He made Adel Taarabt captain at 21 and it was glorious (fleetingly)

    He gave John Bostock his debut at 15, and Clyne's at 17
