Really dont like Schneiderlin in the sole DCM role. protecting our current slow centre backs. I would sooner a quicker Gana be terrier like in front of the back 2, than Schneiderlin chasing back 2 yards from their attacker and dragging centre backs out of position with his lack of nouse/pace. With time on the ball, he can be a decent player, but unless theres a huge turnaround in his form I personally think he is a liability as things are. If he has to play Id sooner he be a bit further up the pitch - the same with Sigurdsson from a defensive point of view. Our saving grace is our front 3 - if they take their opportunities they may drag us out of this current squad mess.
Keane -------- Jags
Coleman --------------------- Baines
Schneiderlin ----- Sigurdsson
Walcott --------------------------- Richarlison
Maybe Baines will still get a bit of play-time, introducing Digne in slowly. Hopefully we get Mina in, or 1, preferrably 2 CBs in VERY soon. If we do get Mina, at least he would have worked with Digne a fair bit, so will be a slightly easier transition. Wolves are a very solid and drilled unit, we will have to be on our top game to get anything, but with our front 3 I remain optimistic. Be a different story, if we would have secured say Mina, Lascelles a month ago, and everyone was up to speed. REALLY looking forward to the game, but with slightly squeaky bum.
