So are we doing anything with the midfield?Schneiderlin-Gana-Sigurdsson is a recipe for getting counterattacked to death.And the issue isn't just Schneiderlin.
I think we're hoping Davies and Beni suddenly come of age this season. We have huge holes in this squad so one or two of the kids have got to step up to the plate as we're not bringing in another 3-4 you wouldn't have thought. I hope I'm wrong.
I'm not against bigger roles for the kids. (I'd add Dowell to that list.)What I'm currently worried about is that Silva seems to see the aforementioned three as first choice. Three players that don't move or show for the ball much, can't make forward passes stick, and can't dribble through pressure seems... bad.
He can probably see what we see but he's addressing one gap at a time. The left hand side of the pitch, neglected for years, has now been addressed so we can attack down either flank again. Next will be trying to plug the gaping hole in the centre of the defence and finally the midfield. Not sure we'll be able to address it all in one window but I'm sure they're working on it.
and then we'll see half the Everton youngsters we've sold in the England team in 8 years time..lol at downplayiing england winning the under 20 world cup. and 2 out of the last 3 toulon tournies..i guess these same people want us to spend millions and have success straight away..id rather build on the strong youth set up/squad.Saying our youngsters where shit last season, when we had 2 very negative managers.. is pretty naive imho. especially if thats the only time you have seen those players play. then of course you view would be correct, but if you have seen them play much better for England and our reserve team.. then you may think differently.
I see your point.Still, I'd argue that the lack of control in the middle of the park has as much to do with our bad defending as the defenders themselves.
Chelsea have just signed 38 year old Rob Green as a backup. Stekelenburg is fine.
The more control we have the less we would need a duracell rabbit tackle machine that canít do anything other than that as well. The eventuality that Gana must be moved aside is coming I think.Schneiderlin; think weíre going with him for the year as the number 6. Missed Carvalho, missed bissouma, MAYBE getting gonalons who is nothing special himself - think itís Morganís place to lose unfortunately.
