Or we could just play Calvert-Lewin. That works too.

hes not at the required standard, one decent finish against Bournemouth doesn't change that for me

At this point he's right though (I think). Might as well persevere with him for the rest of the season, give him the chance to have good and bad days as part of a learning curve, and hope that the upside is that he really develops in that period, and is a better player for us in the future.

If Richarlison moves back to the wing, where does that leave Bernard?

I'm skeptical that there are any strikers out there, regardless of whether or not we can afford them, who can fix our inability to control a match by virtue of their hold-up play and movement alone. (Maybe Harry Kane?) No real point spending money on a forward right now when we aren't putting our forwards in a position to succeed.

Fix the midfield and add a right back, let Calvert-Lewin work on his game in the meantime (he actually does alright working off of scraps), then revisit this problem when we have a team that can build attacks and create good chances consistently.

He can still start some on the left (I think Richarlison has played well on the right on the limited occasions he's been asked to) and he should get a shot at Sigurdsson's role as well (this is an experiment that needs to happen).

Sigurdsson is clearly divisive, and I'd not be opposed to an experiment, but I'm not sure the distance he covers and the goals he brings would be compensated for by Bernard.

No one can say for sure if it would help but this is one of the things that's bothering me about Silva right now. There is no experimenting with the midfield going on even though we get dominated there every match. We have no information besides Gana-Gomes-Sigurdsson (I'm being kind including Sigurdsson since he's basically a forward) is totally fucked. That strikes me as poor problem-solving on his part.

One added thing about Sigurdsson -- what is that distance covered doing for us? I think he does fuck all in terms of helping us get the ball back and I don't think he takes up good positions in attack either. Not all hard work is equal in terms of benefit to the team.

If we're not pressing effectively as a team, that has to be on Silva though rather than Sigurdsson surely?

Bang on the money Richarlson lad ...we do need a striker .. .although when we actually played a striker earlier in the season we were picking up well more points ...Tosun wasnt scoring many but he was freeing up space for others to attack into ....since we stopped playing a proper forward we have regressed .attacking wise .
