I like Garcia too, not really been given a fair chance at City. He's had a few good games around when Toure was away in the ACON, but he's again out of favor now. Like you said, perhaps the pace of the PL is to much for him.
Sonclair has the potential to be a decent player, but I can't see him getting a look in at a top club. He's better off moving to somewhere else because he's never going to be a regular for City with the likes of Silva and Nasri ahead of him in the creative midfield department.
I think Rodwell as one point had the traits and potential to be a top player, but like you say, injuries halted his progress bad. I remember United being interested in him a couple of years back, definitely a good choice to pass up on him and go for Jones though!
