I'd love to know who you're referring to. I expect the stats are wrong, so it's probably not worth googling them. I can only think you're trying to compare him to Tomlin, which would be hilarious.

Who is this mystery player? Is he also someone who's played as a left mid/left winger like O'Dowda? Or are you still under the impression that O'Dowda plays a Ronaldinho-like role for us.
I’m assuming he’s talking about Whitts without looking at the stats

Of all of our players O'Dowda is the LAST one that deserves criticism. We'd be deep into the relegation zone without him this season.

399 Champ games, 82 goals across 12 seasons and not an AM.

Tommo's stats are closer, not exactly what Dai quoted, but Dai's never knowingly quoted correct stats before, so my money's still on him.

A quick look at the stats shows that there’s only one midfielder that’s scored over 60 goals for us and that’s Whitts (85 goals in over 400 appearances)

I’m sure Dai will be back soon to let us all know who he’s referring to…..

Edit: Unless of course Dai’s stats are taken from a players time at another club of course - but seeing as that’s irrelevant I’m sure he wouldn’t be that dull?

Former City players with more than 60 Championship goals. Here we go: -

McCormack 120
Jerome 83
Whitts 82
Chops 74
Uncle Albert 68
Earnie 66
Maynard 60

Only Adomah of those plays a role remotely like O'Dowda. And Adomah was never our player in any case.

My money is on us not hearing a word from him about it again.

Great Glos. Stick him in a Pound Shop and everything in the shop would be worth more than he is.

My money is not.

Whitts had seven Championship seasons in his first seven seasons with the club. His league goal tally for those first seven seasons, is a matter of record.

No bloody keepers in that list - when will we do something about it?

Jesus Christ.

Listen carefully.

O Dowda is a left winger.

Whitts was a playmaker, free kick taker, penalty taker and spent his time playing just behind the front line creating chances.

Now fuck off you sad old wind up and stop embarrassing yourself.

Of course it's Ronaldinho you muppet.

Who else could it be.
I may be a muppet, but I’m not the one trying to draw a comparison between a championship player and one of the greatest players ever to grace the turf of the nou camp

Whitts was a Centre Mid, not an Attacking Mid, you buffoon.

You know, or in your case obviously not, that he operated on either the left or right wing as well as a midfielder. From time to time he would be used as a back up striker.

His league goal tally in his first seven seasons with us is indisputable.

Thus the comparison with O'Dowda's seven seasons is a fair one.

Only the delusional on here, you know the ones that proclaim how good Robin Friday was and how much of a material difference he made to the City, would seek to find fault with it.

For the record, we’ve now compared O Dowda (7 games played for City) with Ronaldinho and Whitts.

From the available stats on Transfermarkt. It's only about half his games, but a fair sample I think: -

Screenshot 2022-09-22 at 14.28.21.png


Some observations: -

1) Played loads more games at CM than any other position
2) His goal return playing on the left or right of midfield - i.e. in a role comparable to O'Dowda, is roughly 1 in 10.

It's like Dai is incapable of having a rational discussion on any topic. Do you think all his day to day interactions are like this? It must be exhausting for him and everyone who knows him.
