I like that (almost) everyone slaughters Martinez as an awful manager but then suggests we play with almost the exact same style/shape/personnel (just swapping Gueye and McCarthy)

What's your point?

Eh?

Other managers use full backs in an attacking sense. It not exactly something Martinez pioneered.

Yes and Leicester showed that it's not mandatory.

Except Martinez didn't bother telling the players to press, or bother trying to defend set pieces.

You can still play the same shape but not do the basics, that is where we lacked under Martinez.

Not so sure. I remember Snodin reverting to right back and did very well. It's the easiest position on the pitch.
yeah, he was picked for England duty because of his performances at right back then got an injury and was out for quite a while,dont think he got a call up again

If he's going to be used as a destroyer, just in front of the back four, his distribution doesn't necessarily have to be anything special. His primary job is to screen the defence, neutralise opposition attacks and put us back on the front foot. If he throws a tackle in, wins the ball and then gives it straight to the nearest team-mate, moving back into space to receive it back if need be, it's more or less job done. He doesn't have to spray accurate 30/40 yard passes all over the pitch all game, a simple 4/5 yard pass will suffice.

I think having him in the team will bring the best out off Ross Barkley and in turn Lukaku and Deleofeu will benefit.

i absolutely agree like - but isn't this what james mccarthy does?

OK gana seems to be a better tackler / closing down but nobody ever questioned McCarthy's legs or tackling, it's what he can do on the ball.

So when we're dominating a game, but drawing 0-0 and gana plays a couple of these 4 yarders back and forth - i hope we're patient enough to understand different players have different jobs.

failing that I hope we lash bolassie on and win 4-3

James McCarthy has not improved at all in the three years he has been here. If anything, he's actually regressed.

that's a different argument I think.

My point is -

When we're dominating a game, and there's no one to tackle, we should be wary of the James "does nothing" MCarthy syndrome.

But as I say above hopefully Ronald is building a squad with viable plan B's!
