what are they
1)Comfort on the ball (sorely lacking )
and a huge requirement in any midfield .
2)ability to hold off a player or two
3)a range of passing
4)ability to go past a man using strength or guile.
Spot me another in our line up can do all of these ...in a good day Davies might get two out the four , he may get to Gomes level i hope over time but he's not there yet .
We have nobody of the same ilk. ..we could do with a couple in reality .
