I think in this setup he's got a far better chance of success. You'd like to see him get a go alternating in the Davies role with the brains of Rooney behind him and the speed of Walcott and guile of Sig next to him. He'll also have a willing runner all day long in Niasse.

Clearly I'm basing that off more faith than evidence but I can't believe he was as bad as he first showed for us and even then admittedly he has shown glimpses of one touch class a few times.
Yeah I've come to the same opinion based off absolutely nothing too
Simply simply lovely

In Walcott, sigurdson and gana we've got the basis of a top 6 midfield there.

It's now about getting a DM and number 10 to play alongside them for next season.

It's incredible what a change of environment does for a player. I haven't see Walcott go past players like that for a good few years. Think at Arsenal he just went through the motions a lot of the time of playing two touch football.

Here he seems to realise he needs to take the game to the opposition more and he's thriving on that.

Also worth noting Kenny had his best display offensively yesterday and that was all down to how Walcott made space for him.

A number 10? Are you Ronald Koeman?

Sigurdson plays well off the left.

Rooney plays well in a deeper role.

And klassen doesn't seem to have much future here.

Getting a creative number 10 should be a priority IMO.

I was kidding.

I agree we need a number 10 who is better than the ones we have.

Sig certainly seems to be settling in well at last though, isn't he?

Yes maybe there's something to be said for giving people time, even a little bit of time.

Because of his price tag he's been allowed to have time to settle in the team ....really wish we could have given the likes of Klassen Lookman and Sandro more than a quick look ...you never know what might have been .

Klassen cost more. Walcott has started well. Let's hope the others are given the time to settle in next season with the new manager. (hopefully)

Reinforces how far off the top 6 we are when the likes of Walcott are not considered good enough.

Walcott is good enough. Sig is good enough. Pickford is good enough. Gana is good enough. Coleman is good enough. Rooney is just about good enough. Bolasie could be good enough. Davies might be. Holgate might be.

We really not that far off

Only a manager and a striker then?

Oh right, we bought a striker.

Think I’ve been a bit positive here as well to be honest, and even then compared to the top 6 we look about £300m off not  taking into account the inevitable inflation of next summer.

In terms of getting 7th next year, I think 4 signings of young, athletic Europa level quality in CB/LB/CM/ST would make the world of difference.

Biggest priorities are :

1. A back up for Rooney who can do what rooney does. At the moment we can’t play when he’s not on the pitch and he won’t be here for long.

2. LB

3. A quality, mobile CB. Bonus points if they can ball a bit. Triple bonus points if they can organise a piss up in a brewery. Quadruple bonus points if they are entirely free of brain farts.

4. A striker, pace would be great, pace and goals would be even better.

I don't know a lot about Klaassen, but I've always had him pegged as being fairly similar to Davies.

From the little I've seen of Klaassen, they're both players who don't touch the ball an awful lot for midfielders, but have decent movement, support attacks and try to help out defensively.

I'd love to see what he was like in our most recent midfield 3 next to Gueye and Rooney at some point.

Otherwise, I think you've got the priorities spot on. Though I'd be buying a replacement for Rooney, rather than a back up.

Yes would save us a lot of money if Klaassen could suddenly turn out ok, box to box with a high work rate and typically picked up a lot of goals in Holland (15-20 per year).

However, he hasn’t been part of a squad for 9 weeks and hasn’t played for the u23s in that time. I’ve no idea what he does besides like people’s Instagram posts.
