Got a load of midfielders who arenít actually good at anything.
Whatís Gomes good at really?
Davies? Whatís are his strengths?
About two good attributes in there.
Gomes - dictate the tempo and the play. When pressed he can ease it out getting the pace down. Creativity - when we win the ball Gomes can actually pass the ball and make the good runs from wingers be of any importance. He is fantastic with the ball in his feets. He can drible 1-3 players. For me Gomes is absolutely one of the best midfielders in PL and I think that former players, now being pundits is quite right about their admiration of him. We badly miss him. If Gomes is not good at anything I dont know what Arteta was good at either...
Davies - have no clue about his strengths. He is kind of decent at everything. Not sure if he ever will be the player people hope for. And as you said - what do they actually hope for?
Sigurdsson - dedication and work rate. Free-kicks and sometimes very short passes in high speed.
Morgan - funny that one. At Southampton he was like Idrissa Gueye. For us he has had one fantastic game - I think it was against United where he was absolutely everywhere. For me - a proof that you shouldnt buy failures at the biggest clubs.
Delph - composure.
Overall: Except Gomes none of the above has any creativity and even more worringly none of the above actually have any defensive skills either. You are making a good point The Ram.
