    You are spot on but they don't seem to do that any more. Not like the old days.

    2021/22 Mason Holgate

    He's not even Phil Neville standard. However whenever he had a run at CB he has been OK. It's because he isn't a utility player that he gets messed up. The same thing happened to Jagielka when he first joined us he was shifted around the team and he looked awful. However Holgate isn't as good a...

    2021/22 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    I think he needs another chance but it must be in a midfield 3 whilst he adjusts to the league. I honestly think 4-3-3 suits us better anyways whilst DCL is unavailable. He was out so long and it was a new league the stinker he had was inevitable. I only hope that being hooked at half time...

    2021/22 Mason Holgate

    He's had a terrible calendar year. I hope this suspension will do him good and give him time to work out where he is. At the minute he is on the road out. However I can see there is in there he just needs to decide if he's that player. He will maybe get one more chance and he has to take it...

    2021/22 Yerry Mina

    He was quite poor in his last year with us. I always thought if it hadn't been for Australia we would have got another 2 years out of him.

    I'm ok pal. However trying to do both can seriously affect your club form. Cahill, Coleman and McCarthy.

    Yobo was like this as well.

    2021/22 Yerry Mina

    If Mina is fit at the weekend I'm not bothered who plays alongside him as he brings out the best in all 3. He like any other CB is always liable for an error but I think he has even improved on that front. The other 3 look lost without him.

    2021/22 Fabian Delph

    If he's fit and Digne isn't where do you play him LB because of Godfrey poor form or CM because that's where he played well? Never thought we would have a conundrum like this about Delph.

    2021/22 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    He was completely hung out to dry. First start in over 2 years in new league. We needed a extra pair of legs in there. Davies should have started instead of Iwobi. I hope he gets another chance as it would be extremely harsh judging hi off that debacle.

    I'm disappointed but take the best FB, CB, CM and ST out of any team and they will struggle.

    Delph on the bench as well. Is there going to be an apocalypse?

    Gbamin starts hope people cut some slack and don't instantly expect him to be a world beater.

    2021/22 Alex Iwobi

    When he plays we are effectively down to 10 men. He's like a supermarket own luxury brand. It's not quite what it says on the label.

    2021/22 Mason Holgate

    He's exactly where John Stones was last summer. He clearly has potential but he's lost his confidence. He is now of an age where he needs to be playing regularly. A lot of his career path has been similar to Stones. He's obviously not as good but his career is similar. CBs peak from their mid...

    2021/22 Ben Godfrey

    Godfrey and Holgate. The new Jones and Smalling. Best position CB but because they can fill in elsewhere get dragged all over the team. The only difference is they are being kept out by Michael Keane which must be soul destroying.

    2021/22 Michael Keane

    I would be happy with either Godfrey or Holgate alongside Mina. The problem we have is all 4 CBs are a similar level with Mina being slightly better. It's the 5 year part ao don't like. 3 plus 1 would have been sufficient. Playing Keane with Mina commits us to having to defend deep. A new left...

    2021/22 Michael Keane

    I like Ancelotti even in spite of what he did but he has left us in a few bad places. This extension Keane was ridiculous more so because the year earlier we did the same with Holgate. I would honestly accept any reasonable offer we got for him.

    Not that any of them are guaranteed to make I get the general feeling Welch is our best defensive prospect, Onyango the best midfielder and Dobbin best forward. I think they all need kept her so if an opportunity comes they can step in. I think Ledson is a better midfielder than Davies but he...
