Iím not having heís better than iwobi Delph or Walcott. Iím not sure how Gordon would have contributed much less had he played
I genuinely donít think heís the best of a bad lot. Heís the worst of a bad lot. He doesnít even want the ball
Also heís fucking captain which doesnít really suggest heís just playing because the other options are worse. It suggests managers seem to rate his nothingness
Ignoring Walcott who isn't really competing for a starting spot with Sig.
Gbamin is injured
Schneiderlin is injured
Iwobi and Delph when not injured (which in Delph's case is fairly rare) have more assists for the opposition than they have for us
Bernard has only completed 90 minutes 3 times this season. The last time being against West Ham in October so its possible that there are fitness issues there.
That leaves Davies and Gomes who has just come back from a broken leg.
So 3 players from that lot.
As for captain, I don't get why it was Sig. He's never struck me as much of a leader. But again what are the other options. Digne (would be my choice) Davies? Pickford?
