I do enjoy watching him,  but when you look at how overrun we sometimes are there seems to be a direct correlation with him being miles out of position. I also have it in my head that Schneiderlin is  the much better player and a lot of the stick he gets is cause he's pulled all over the place due to Gueye never being where he should be

Is he not all over the place because he’s pressing and no fucker else is. Think if we can get them to do it as a unit he’ll be great

I don't buy that.

For example -- last season's match against Silva's Watford (Unsworth in charge). We're defending a one goal lead late in the match, Watford are probing for an equalizer. We have a solid defensive shape, Watford have possession in a harmless part of midfield. Gana makes a mad dash to go win the ball, Watford work the ball around him and pass through the space he vacated to win a penalty. Pressuring the ball isn't some virtuous pursuit in this situation. We were winning, we were well positioned, Watford were up to absolutely nothing. Ultimately, we were lucky that Cleverley took an awful penalty.

Gana's game is full of these little gambles to win possession back, regardless of whether or not we need to win it. It's why I hate it when we give him any sort of positional freedom. I think all of his best football is played when he stays in his own half and moves side to side to break up or slow down counterattacks.

Gueye over Morgan any day of the week for me.

Shades of what any competent manager says in this situation. Would not worry too much, yet.

Of course there are instances where Gueye is singularly at fault because of his over exuberance, as you rightly have pointed out here. But I don't think that is wrong that Gueye will fair better in a team that works, and presses, as a team better than we did this past season.

Simply saying I wouldn’t feel too relieved by the template statement.

Feels like we need to see a few more go the other way first, doesn’t it.

Come on, whose next? Get going.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Baningime is also that sort of player. And younger. And homegrown.

So yeah, no point.

He may have been the player (in small bursts) that impressed me the most in terms of future potential last season.  There's a really good player in there.
