The best thing I like about the recruitment this window is...They all look like starters, maybe Gomes might struggle displacing Sigurdsson / Gueye from central midfield, Sigurdsson will have to drop back to accommodate Bernard.
But if Zouma goes through and I really hope he does, him and Mina both look like collossus at the back, with the added bonus of Zouma's speed. Richarlison definite starter and for me so is Digne. We have gone from a basically slow team to a fast one, they must be given time to gel, but I don't think I have ever been so optimistic for a coming season ever.

Has Gylfi ever actually proven to be any good a playing deep or is this another case of assuming a midfielder can play deep because Paul Scholes was able to?
you cant take the right out of Kenwright

We won't know until we try it, so assume what you wish.

Gueye
Gomes

That's what I'd say. Bernard and Baines definitely in and around the first 11 too.

I think Sig is definitely going deep  :o

I think hell end up out wide.

Really wide. So wide hes actually on the bench.

Are people trying to convince themselves that Sigurdsson is a playmaker again?

Why do people think playing him deep is a good idea?

He plays there with Iceland to good effect. He's got a decent engine on him to get up and down and he's not as poor on the ball as he's made out to be.

Hes always played high up the pitch when Ive watched him for Iceland.

Hes not poor on the ball, but hes not somebody that can play deep and dictate a game.

His best position is high up the pitch, one touch passing, linking up with the frontmen and getting shots off.

I agree but I do think we have to have other options in how we utilise him more generally though. There will be times when he's just not suited to the more advanced position when everyone is fit and hopefully firing. He's not blessed with any great pace, skill or vision and he's not getting any younger. It may not be this season but I can see him dropping back, if only to get full use out of a 50m outlay.

Yeah hed be better off the striker tbh. Just one touch it until you get a chance to strike the ball.

I really want to believe in him this year but you have to say, its turning out to be a very bad waste of money.

Im not having him playing deep in any way tbh.

Doesnt have the skill set for it.

Hes a goalscoring midfielder and should be used as one.
