Iker Casillas: Has a fan in Jesus Navas

The Spanish winger may have some explaining to do when he returns to the Etihad after the international break after recommending his compatriot to replace Joe Hart.

"[Casillas] would be a great signing for City," Navas told Movistar.

"You always want great players in your team because they can be so important. We are not suddenly thinking this about Iker though. We all know what a great keeper he is and how vital he is to his team.

Navas is settling into life in England having previously undergone councilling for severe home sickness that even prevented him from travelling with the Spain squad.

"I am very happy and have been so since the first minute," he continued. "It was an opportunity that I wanted to take.

"Now I like English football a lot because of the style of play and the speed of it."

Manchester City are set for another season in the Champions League and Navas believes that the club can progress after two disappointing campaiagns.

"City is a team that should aspire to win everything," he added. "We are strong and have to have confidence and we should remain calm.

"We have started well in the league although our main aim is the Champions League because we want to go a long way in the competition."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
