Why do we have to pigeon hole players like Maddison to one set role.
Has plenty of ability to be of use in the midfield. Too much of this nonsense these days.
Top coaches utilise talent like this. Too much nerd ball outlook and lack of vision.
I don’t think ESR is reliable enough for a top four club, so Maddison would be a serious upgrade for him and although I agree that Tielemans wouldn’t be a straight replacement for Partey, he would be a useful CM and at the end of the season we can get him for free.
I think you were correct what you wrote before, would he be ok to come in and sit on the bench, knowing that hes in rotation?
For me, id rather spend that money in positions much more needed
I do think ESR is good enough and will be reliable enough for us. He needs to play and get fit again but he will get back to where he was.
I also dont think there is any point bringing in Tielemans as a useful CM because hes on a free, id rather have that wage spent on much more required positions in the squad.
