I agree mate, would love to see more of him but you’d be the first to admit our midfield’s the most precariously balanced part of the side.
Sure, but we're talking about 20-30 minutes at the end of a match where we're on the front foot. You could easily sub him for Davies or Sigurdsson in that scenario without destroying our balance.
We are very, very open even with 3 midfielders who get through tons and tons of work. Opportunities might not have arisen just yet.
We've been open with midfielders who work hard for years now. Our inability to control the ball is the real issue. Dowell won't solve that problem today but he could be a part of the solution moving forward if we give him match time to develop.
As much as we’d like to keep him, it’s be far better for him to move away, probably permanently.
At some point, he's going to have to, and I think there's a fair chance he makes us look very stupid if he does move.
