I'm not a guy to call national managers and tell them what to do. I said "where are you?" The 17-year-old was sold to Dortmund on transfer deadline day in a deal worth £8 million and Guardiola admits he was frustrated to see him go. (more...)

On initial look, it appears to be a broken ankle or a severe sprain at the minimum. The cart had to come pick Darby up off the field while medical personnel stabilized the joint. Nonetheless, he was clearly the top talent the Eagles had at cornerback, as the position remained a major question mark coming into the season.
