    It’s exactly how he plays
    He even talks about it regularly when arguing that the system Ian t defensive, it’s brave. Play the ball around at the back to suck teams in, creating space to play through

    It can be both... A dynamic defence line that can shift from defence into attack quickly. Recall his Chelsea team with Luiz? With a low line wingbacks are key but with a high line and pushing up through the centre starting with the CCB we can commit more men in midfield and then more men in box.

    We do that with Romero and Davies
    It’s the reverse of what you say with more CBS attacking

    At the beginning of the season, I thought he needed to be shipped out as a priority, but now I think he deserves to stay and prove himself in the center.

    He has improved dramatically but even then I think he can be upgraded, however, we have other parts in our team that are priority that need addressing. RWB, LWB, LCB, CM, ST

    May be better with Romero in the centre. Didn't he play in the centre of a three for Atalanta?

    Yep but he had the other two sticking behind
    It was the reverse of what we do now

    I’d say what we do no is a W formation with the CBS starting at the bottom of the W and attacking wide

    at Atlanta is was more like an upside down V. He played. He played central but was the most aggressive from there

    I appreciate the letters as a reference may not help ;)

    He was a loon
    But it was effective as when he didn’t take the man he had two players to clean up
    What I didn’t see in Italy was his passing range which is really really impressive

    if romero as CCB is an auxillary DM and can dictate play from deep with long passing, that's why we need him there and should build a defence around him.

    Romero is a freelancer, Dier is staff, we need both

    He is excellent as a RCB, not the least of which because he links very well with Kulu and Doherty. Right now it is Royal who is actually advancing more and playing more like a WB because of the security and intelligence Romero displays in that slot.

    If we got Bastoni, I think out back three would be among the best.

    The other way of thinking is that it's easier to find rcbs and lcbs compared to game dictating ccbs. So yes it feels like a big shuffle, but it gets the best out of Romero for us. Also a question of what's out there and for what price and I wonder if its over for Rodon and Sanchez in Conte's back 3.

    Though I agree about the right side... We have the best right wing in the league at the moment with Kulu, Romero, Doherty and (despite) Romero.

    Dier was 'uge this season. Big marshal at the back. So good.

    Afreed. Immense from him, not only as a playa, but as an influence on those around him (yes, I know he misplaced a few passes, but a solid presence).

    Not in the England squad announced today!

    Coady, Guehi and White in.

    Now there's an underwhelming squad.

    Well, that's a bit brick. Probably comeback for Dier criticising the PFA nominations.

    Coady and Guehi have had good seasons, and the latter is young so let's get him in. Ben White, meh. But Stones and Maguire?! Certainly not on club form, although I suppose the latter has done well for England.

    I'm pleased that Tomori and Abraham have made it in. I've not seen anything of them this season, but it sounds like they've both been tearing it up in Serie A.

    Hopefully Kane won't have to play every minute of every game.
