Rooney dropping back to the half way line and offering nothing that can’t be done by other players.

Here's what I don't understand about the 2 DM setup. Every week, Gana finds himself in areas in or around the final third where he needs to find a good forward pass and he doesn't have the skills to do that. The space is there but we're wasting those opportunities by giving them to a player who isn't good at moving the ball, especially in tight areas.

Why not drop one of Schneiderlin/Gana, ask the remaining DM to stay deep, and take a defensive downgrade at the open position to add quality in the final third? If we were to do a better job of keeping the ball in attacking areas, the defensive downgrade might not even matter.

We haven't started well. We've not even threatened their goal or created a proper chance.

20 minutes of two turgid teams with no real idea.

Especially now that Jags has returned and we aren't a toddler fingerpainting in its own shit at the back.

This is also - by far - the most aggressive I've seen the SeaRats play since coming up.

Someone should’ve been on that cross, great corner from Sigurdsson.

It would make sense to drop one of them and move Sig back deeper if we want to accommodate both him and Rooney.

You could try Rooney there.  I'd rather Davies or Klaassen, but better than the charade of lone striker.

If Rooney can’t be disciplined enough to stay up top then their really is no point in playing him as a striker.
