It is 11 years since this club payed properly for a centre midfielder!

Post by Riceascaptain » Tue Feb 12, 2019 6:06 pm

6m on Parker 2007 and 5 million for Behrami in 2008.

Since then the centre midfield has been neglected

I don´t have to list all the major honours we have had in the last 11 years do I?

I think this is the area we need to strengthen the most.

The major signing in the summer should be a CM to slot in alongside Rice.

I epxect Obiang will leave for Italy in the summer (he wants to go there), Sanchez is on his last meters, Wilshere is crocked, I´ve heard Fernandes has done pretty well with Fiorentina so he could return but I doubt it since El Pel loaned him out in the first place. So according to this we need at least 2 centre midfielders in the summer, 1 for the first eleven and one for the squad.


What do you think?

I don’t think this is anything new to be honest , I doubt you’ll find anybody on here that will argue with you .

Everybody seems to have known that we need a defensive minded midfielder for fucking yonks .

Except all our managers that is :D

For once that worked in our favour. Carvalho doesn't have the engine to play in the Prem.

They've tried.. and first signs were encouraging, with Diami and Kayoute.

Both these players were not managed well and were encouraged to be more attacking players than they were capable of
being.

Bit of a burst and the goal starved managers get excited.

Kouyate was a centre back who was converted to a midfielder by Sam Allardyce.

Diame was free wasn´t he?

So the point still remains this area has been criminally neglected through the years.

I´m not sure we need a defensive midfielder (for the first eleven) after Rice stepped up but a box to box midfielder, all rounder who can attack and defend, someone like Doucoure from Watford

What? So you don´t agree we need to strengthen the centre midfield in the summer?

You don´t think this area has been neglected through the years?
