The one game, you mean.

The game against Southampton at the end of last season as well

Ah, right, he came on toward the very end, right? Forgot he appeared in that one.
Playing FM20 24/7.

Hojbjerg may well have been great here, we've basically gone down the opposite route of Spurs and bought players that fit together well in a system. Spurs just bought a player who was cheap and had good stats in a position they needed to strengthen, without it seems much thought about how it would knit together.

Appreciate I'm making that judgement on one game and may be proved wrong, but to me it seems like Hojbjerg became a Spurs player, whereas if he'd come to us he'd have been more than that, he'd have been a part of a very specifically chosen midfield.

Probably Cahill in the first half of 04/05 when we had Gravesen ahead of him.

But we switch him further forward when Arteta came.

McCarthy and Gueye could both get from one end to the other but limited threat. Always disappointed that McCarthy in particular never used to drive forward with the ball more.
Really quite shocking when you think about it.          But then again, there aren't that many genuine box-to-box midfielders out there.
