Micah Richards - Midfield General?

Micah Richards - Midfield General?

The answer to City's lack of strength in midfield could already be charging about Bluesy's Carrington Football Factory...

Micah Richards has got it all, is as strong as an ox and he is still maturing.

With City's defensive options bolstered by signing Chelsea's underplayed Tal Ben Haim, a good number of Blues across the City wires are pushing for a Richards-Johnson midfield engine room axis.

The prospect of Richards going box to box alongside the similarly powerful Johnson is certainly something worth considering and an option Bluesy could explore in the coming friendlies against Celtic and AC Milan.

Were this idea to be realised, it would be yet another achievement for the brilliant MCFC Academy!


Could you see Richards commanding Central Midfield with Johnno? Give us a shout on the Vital MCFC Forums.

I suspect that this suggestion is not going to happen. Richards speed is the key. Because Charlie has the lope of a giraffe, I would think that Micah would take the RB sport and charlie to midfield holding role. Its a puzzle because until we get a right sided midfielder of quality it still looks unbalanced.

Sometimes I drift towards wanting him back, but then I consider his family searching out houses in the south east for him months before he left City. Never go back, they say. Pascale Feindhouno at Saint Etienne for me. Experienced and clever.

I feel Micah can do a Steven Gerard for us.

I have also called for him to play in this role for some time. He has a lot of the attributes required already. His passing needs some works, as does his concentration level, but I feel he'd do an excellent job for us there. Having said that, he looks comfortable wherever he's been asked to play. Corluka would be equally good. The only thing lacking in his came is speed, but he reads the game superbly.
