I think all arguments about Siggy are valid to a degree. He does need to be involved more but heís created numerous quality chances that DCL and Walcott have spooned wide of the target. Highly creative, goal scoring attacking midfielders/ number 10s, are few and far between. They tend to be one or the other.
Itís been probably been mentioned in the formation thread, but I think Marco would like to play a 433, like Klopp. Attacking fullbacks, 3 solid box-to-box midfielders and 2 inverted goal-scoring wingers playing off a striker. He plays Sig because heís here and heíd be hard to shift, and he might as well use him as best he can.
Rather than try to reinvent the wheel and ditch Sig completely, I think he should just be played 10 yards deeper. Digne aside, heís the most intelligent player we have, he just doesnít have the pace to operate that high up the pitch. I think Iwobi and Bernard would lose the ball even more than Sig does, if they played as close to the opposition CBs and heís told to.

Agree with most of this apart from I think the 10 yard deeper thing isnít really an option/ solution.
If he really wanted a significant increase in his involvement heíd be looking for it naturally.
says, at 29 heís not going to start now. And letís face it, it has been a successful model for him.
If he did drop deeper Iím sure an opposition defender would follow and itís then when it shows how much you really want the ball.
He is what he is, we have to find ways/ players to provide what he doesnít in the type of fixtures where he struggles to impact the general play.
