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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
