Tbf I think Sam does too. He's mentioned several times after games that we need to do more in possession.
Which is why I think Schneiderlin and Gueye cannot play together. Neither offer anything constructive with the ball and Schneiderlin offers very little without it either. As soon as Davies comes on Rooney drops deep and Davies moves forwards, and vice versa, which means we have interchangeable options with the ball. I'd much rather have Sig and Rooney in the middle swapping positions as Davies, for all his promise, still doesn't actually deliver much and with a natural outlet like Bolasie on the left we can start to threaten.
If we can then get an upgrade on Lennon and DCL we might actually start to look as if we can get a foothold in games again.
