I’m not sure Silva trusts many of our players at the minute and Gomes seems to be one of the few he does.

Think those subs were potentially telling.
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.

The best passer of a ball at the club is our second choice left back
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

I'm not sure if anyone has had this idea before, but I wonder if he could play CM?

Well, Martinez did when he took him to watch Lahm

Get him involved at centre mid?

Issue is transition to needing to know where people are 360, as opposed to 120-180 generally and also the speed (and risk) of decision making goes up quite a bit.

Closed down a lot quicker in midfield. That's what usually finds most players out when they move there from another position.
I remember Ian Snoddin struggling to make an impact in midfield; he went to right back and looked so much more composed.
Something clever written by someone else.

Do anything that puts another body deep in midfield. We lose control of every match there.

Proper 4-3-3 with Sigurdsson defending deeper, 4-4-2 diamond like the one suggested in that Stop Bunching! article, I don't really care at this point.

Genuinely struggling to see what Silva’s game plan is. Taking away the oft stated desire for an eventual 4-3-3 then apart from the occasional high press, which seems to have dulled recently, I’m struggling to define what has he implemented successfully since he came in.

Totally agree that we have good players but it's difficult to see a system they can all play in right now. I don't think we are getting the best out of any of them. We look better in defence with three at the back but then we don't have enough going forward but the 4 2 4 leaves us completely exposed and we don't have a recovering centre back like Jagielka was.

Doesn’t have the players to play how he wants.

I reckon only Digne, Gomes, Bernard and Richarlison can implement his game plan.

Needs to be brave now and fuck Sigurdsson off to go 4-3-3, or put Bernard number 10.

Despite him being out of position and second best scorer ,I won't go along with that .
