This midfield is my nightmare.

keane actually passing it on the floor through the lines is good to see.

I hope Allardyce lands on the Holgate-Keane pairing before the season ends.

Two centre backs that can pass a bit would be a dream.

Calvert-Lewin is a competent striker. The problem is we're bad in possession and we don't play any of our wingers who can actually beat a man.

I'd argue that a creative passer in midfield is a bigger priority than a centre forward.

We have a lineup that can actually play some football and it requires only one DM w/ Rooney and Davies in midfield.

I understand the need for squad rotation and monitoring fitness at this time of year but fucking hell.

Michael Keane wants an age on the ball and flaps it anytime the punt up field isn't on.



I think he actually has some quality on the ball.

It's hard to do much of anything when your three midfielders are standing in a horizontal line in a front of you.

I think we can fix this with two subs.

- Rooney for one of the midfielders.

- Bolasie (w/ Sigurdsson moving to the middle) or Davies for one of the other midfielders

I don't see how you can bemoan our lack of forward passing then pick this midfield.

And I don't see how you can think N'Zonzi is the solution. Gana/Schneiderlin/McCarthy can nail simple passes to the other midfielders. We need someone who takes the ball off of them and finds the attackers. Right now, Rooney is the only player who does that with any sort of consistency.

Yay, Rooney.

Too bad he has the Gana/Schneiderlin axis of death behind him.

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and me complaining every time we play with two or more defensive midfielders.

Break this shit up, it's proven garbage. Bolasie or Davies on for Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin's corpse is having a rough game here.

Bolasie playing at half-speed. Maybe the wrong sub.
