    Dier hasn't be playing CM though, which is his best position

    Yes but he can't exactly force his way into midfield when he gives displays at the back like he has been. He doesn't seemed bothered at all.

    Sorry but that's rubbish too

    He played there at the start of the season and was fine

    He was moved into defence as we had no one else that played in Toby's place

    Wanyama has been a great signing and i believe he has been one of our most consistent players this season. I believe the pairing of him and Dier as our two M/F players at the begining of the season was very promising.

    Dier started the season really badly. Was slow, clumbersome and wasteful on the ball. He looked poor in midfield and now looks poor in defence. He does not deserve to start for us until he starts to improve and look a bit sharper all over.

    Really.... Ill disagree. I thought he was fine hence why we looked much better than we do now. We look worse with Dembele in which doesn't add up really as arguably our best midfielder, and maybe leads to Gutter Boys point although we can't demonstrate that with anything other than last seasons results which isn't right and fair

    And ill add that with Dier playing in defence we had until very very recently (last 3 games) conceded less than we did with Toby - and Dier isn't as good as Toby on any level but he is also relatively inexperinced at centre back at this level

    I told them we already got one
    How many times have we started in the Premier this season with a Dier/Dembele DM pair in front of a back 4?

    Wanyama has been our best signing since Toby, I like him a lot. He has started this season as though he had the summer off and a good pre season, unlike Eriksen. The players who played all last year and in the Euros can have a bit of leeway from me.

    See the thread I've just posted

    We have t played the same team twice since at least drawing with the racists last season and Demebeleand Dier haven't played together once in league or champions league in their partnership from last season

    We really didn't look good with Wanyama and Dier as the deep midfield pairing for me. And I think that's why we moved away from that.

    Some of our better games this season has come with Wanyama as the anchor and two box to box midfielders in Alli or Eriksen imo. For me that worked quite a lot better than the Dier and Wanyama combination.

    Dembele has been off form for most of what he's been available for this season and that hasn't helped. Shame as he's still excellent when he's on form.

    I would disagree with that, they started the first 5 games as a pair in C/M and we won 3 and drew the other two conceding only two goals. It was a promising start and if they had played more together it would have got better.

    It's rubbish because my opinion is not the same as yours?

    It's rubbish because when he played there we had better results than when he hasn't and conceded less - their facts no opinions

    Having better results does not mean that he had put in good performances.

    Maybe so, but the team as a whole played better and looked more solid at the back, unbreakable at the back

    Toby was playing too don't forget.

    I thought the Dier/Wanyama combo was ok but a bit samey. Wanyama was the better of the two IMO.
