Where has he gone?
Over the last few weeks in my close circle of family and friends I have been asking, where is Garrido? I would like to know what his situation is more than ever considering Sylvinho hasn't been very convincing.
Now maybe controversially for a long time I wanted to see Garrido play instead of Bridge, I thought he was quicker, better going forward, a better crosser of the ball and and equally as good at defending. Granted Bridge began to improve a hell of a lot but even then there has been no place even on the bench for Javier.
Garrido started off at City quite well when he arrived but slowly started to find it tough playing every week in the premier league and was taken out of the team, he then got another chance and was visibly improving game by game although he did end up being dropped again.
He has never really had a fair crack at City considering his playing background, he has played all the way through Spain's International ranks up to under 21 level and when we bought him he was being coveted as one of the best young left backs in Spain.
I would like to see Garrido get another crack in our team, Sylvinho is not convincing me at all as a stand in for Bridge, Garrido has surely got to be worth a shot it isn't like he ever did anything particularly bad in the past.
Would you give Garrido a shot or just go out and buy a new left back to place in the team ahead of all our current players who play in that position.
