    I expect somebody like Bergwjin would play there instead (and would be far more effective in the WB role that Conte uses). Davies will solely be a LCB in a back 3 I think (and is quite well suited to that role as he is reasonably mobile (for a CB) decent on the ball (for a CB) and adept at give and goes that will allow him to get up the pitch on the ball.

    Its noticeable that Davies has turned up in opponents penalty box in open play a few times since Conte took over.

    Thanks. The WB are largely attacking so I doubt Conte would play Davies there. I see what you mean.
    Seems that in this 343 the WB are attackers and then central midfielders are more defensive.

    With 3cbs and 2dms you should. I have always felf the players stopped taking risks. Maybe job insecurity? Whatever, glad that Conte fixed that in home game #1 and won. Players can't down tools to save their jobs now.

    I agree players should always be prepared to get forward and create problems for opponents, and team mates must cover any gaps when required. Wins build confidence and players will hopefully play with greater freedom.

    This guy needs to go. At least on loan, but better we sell. He was awful against Chelsea and now a Morecambe guy ditched him like a bad cough to score an easy goal.

    Hopefully a few months of regular football whilst on loan at a lower level club will help Tanganga fulfil the promise he once showed.

    We dont need him and Sanchez. Awful last week from him. GHod knows what he was thinking today. Mind you, Gollini wasnt much better

    Right back at the start I said I didn't think he would make it for us as he isn't good enough on the ball to be a fullback and not physical enough to be a centre back. Conte's system with 3 at the back means our centre backs (especially the ones on the left and right) need to be both. That is really highlighting Tanganga's weaknesses even more I think.

    I think he will leave the club in the summer (at the latest). He would probably work pretty well as a player for a lower PL team who want a back four to pretty much solely defend.

    The concerning thing for me is more that his errors for goals recently haven't had anything to do with suitability for a position. They've been basic errors which a defender shouldnt make

    Agree with others that a loan, maybe to a championship team, would be best for him. Problem is that the championship is more physical so I'm not sure he's a back4 CB in the championship - need to find a team which plays a back 3

    I still think there's a player in there. This looks typical 'difficult second season' syndrome. Good players reflect, adapt and ride this stage out. Hopefully he will

    I also think it's particularly important, because after the Kane fiasco in the summer, I see Skipp and Tanganga as now carrying the flame of the soul of the club.

    He needs games and experience
    He needs a loan IMO

    Chris wilder would teach him how to play in a 3 and pass

    No - he still lives in Sheffield. His family home anyway, I think he keeps a flat up there too.

    I definitely thought he looked to have heaps of potential when he broke into the first team at 20. Since then he's played no regular football for 2 years, and when he does play he's regularly having to do so in different positions.

    Give him a Championship loan at centre back for a year, and let's see where he is at that point.
