Yeh true. Our midfield three is pretty functional without much creativity in there but he also doesn’t spin or attempt to roll his defender very often as he knows he hasn’t the speed to get away.
Still, it’d be interesting to see how he plays with a player like Bernard who might play balls round the corner to move onto. Or with someone like Gomes who likes to stride forward with the ball and force defenders to think about whether to step up or drop.
I’m not feeling optimistic about getting Bernard or Gomes cemented in the side before Christmas to be honest, and it’s a real shame, because creativity wise our midfield is pretty much vile shite.
