    He can but Mourinho isn't asking him to. He seems to favour a ball player at the base of midfield, presumably because they are better receiving the ball from defence.

    The investment when we bought La Celso Ndombele Bergwijn is fine, the type of additions we should be looking at. Of course that level of funding has been squeezed.
    But regardless, just as we did with Poch, we need to luck out with a manager, they are the difference maker.
    And I don't necessarily mean winning things but getting us looking decent and challenging (ie where we were)

    I’m still not convinced he can. As I’ve said before he didn’t do that at Southampton IMO
    And although today I thought he was ok he was everywhere rather than sitting
    Compare that with Allan and it’s like chalk and cheese

    He did do that at Southampton but he played other positions too.

    Agree with 1-3, not 4.

    We didn’t have to release the players for them.

    There was one stage in the second half where Toby gave Hojbjerg the ball, when we were losing, and without looking, he knocked it back to Toby. Toby gave it to him again. Again, without looking, he knocked it straight back. That brick doesn’t work at the upper end of the league.

    As John Giles says, your obligation as a midfielder is to get the ball and try to do something constructive with it. If there’s no forward pass on, then and only then, do you knock it sideways or back. Hojbjerg was gutless in that piece of play.

    I’m not writing him off by any means but he needs to up his game.

    So easy to mark out of a game because there is literally nothing movement-intelligence-wise around him when Dele is off the pitch. Nothing. We cannot even sign a second striker to give him a break/push/whatever. Might as well get fudging Costa or Deeney in and complete our regression; at least there'd be an option instead of flogging the living brick out of him for fudging nothing (not swearing at you mate, just tinkled off)...

    As I say when I saw them he wasn’t playing there
    Not sure where he was playing but not DM
    They had Romeu abs ward Prowse Doing that role at varying times
    It’s not a dig at him but he doesn’t look like a DM to me
    Seeing he didn’t start for Denmark scares me too but I dont know if that’s a one off

    Everyone is slating Dier for it. He clearly left his man to make a last ditch challenge because Toby was all over the place. Not Diers fault for me. Thought he was one of our least brick players. @milo, Dier for least brick player in a white shirt today.

    I don't see much point in rehashing this. We did it to death before he signed.

    Felt for Dele
    He was trying but it didn’t come off
    Thought it was an odd sub unless he was injured

    True
    I’ll wait to be convinced
    I hope I’m wrong because we will be even worse otherwise
    And he wasn’t bad today

    TBF the players who don’t put the work in look like being the ones who were here before
    Can’t fault Doherty and Holdberg today for effort. Lo Celso always pulls his weight and so does Bergwein
    A few more like that will help

    Why did Lamela not get on? He may not be liked by all on here but you get an even mix of attacking play and defensive work ethic he’s hit the ground running in early season games before.

    he’s an elite level player, it’s the same when Barca lose, it’s always Masai’s fault

    yes he can be part of team goals, but look at his highlight reel, his greatest moments come from nothing, him picking the ball up deep or by the touch line, getting into space, defenders bouncing off of him before he smacks it in at 100 miles an hour from an impossible angle, that’s what we need from him
