We've all known Coleman, Keane, Schneiderlin and Sig aren't what we need for a long time. The fact they're all still here and even all on the pitch at the same time either disproves the great job Brands has done so far or questions the managers selection and tactics. Or both. It's open for discussion anyway.
Coleman: Well, Brands got Sidibe in, so we’ll see if Silva has the confidence to try him and let him find his feet.
Keane: Strong rumours suggest that Silva, worryingly, insisted that any new CB had EPL experience. Any CB’s within our reach that aren’t overpriced in this league are pretty mediocre.
Schneiderlin: As average as he is, we’ve still got him, and with Gbamin injured, Gomes injured, Delph likely to get injured, and Gana departed, it might not be a bad thing. Plus, who’s gonna take on those ridiculous wages?
Sigurdsson: Any team that could afford his fee and wages wouldn’t want him. I do feel that if they didn’t fancy Vlasic, they should’ve got another young number 10 in, although maybe that’s Iwobi. I just hope Silva gives him a go.
