Well we cant build it round Rooney ..he goes awol all over the pitch ,Sandro is a worse shout than DCL as he does most his best off the right wing ,who do you suggest Niasse ?.Not being a twat just curious .
I think most would agree he shouldn't be starting near as much as he has but there's only Rooney who has looked capable of a goal so it's understandable why he has. It's no indictment of Calvert Lewin that he isn't doing much right now, it's a massive indictment of club and manager but I think we are agreeing on that.
Build the attack around him, or even have him as a regular starter, whatever the barometer my point is his stats donít back up having him anywhere near a regular starting berth of a side that is meant too have European ambitions. I feel I have to caveat this every time, that doesnít mean youíre writing him off but how anyone can really argue heís ready to be a starter based on 1 goal and 2 assists over the course of half a season of appearances is just bizarre.
Heís 20 and regularly asked to play in 2 or 3 different positions unfamiliar to his natural game. He shouldnít be getting judged on his strike rate, or even harshly judged at all given heís being shunted round so much. Especially in a team thatís creating so little, itís hardly Stuart Barlow levels for chances heís spurned. Thereís very little point in critiquing any of these new or young players while the tactics, selections and formations are so random game after game.
It's not like there isn't sympathy for the position he's in but ultimately the PL is a very tough league if you're playing no matter your age be it on the older or younger end of the spectrum you get graded according to what is expected from a PL footballer. Once again, I'll stress that doesn't mean you write him off but it does mean he needs to contribute more be it goal scoring or assists to justify his place.You may not want to judge him on scoring or assists but that's how this team will in large part be judged at the end of the season.
So if Davies is dropped back into a defensive midfielder position with Schneiderlins injury and we keep on getting run through the middle heís next on the block? Or if he he gets pushed out to wingback and doesnít create any chances and we keep on conceding?
