I am saying " yes" let him run that flank with Arnie coming in from the left and Anderson through the center with Snoddy in support!! Also he will be better cover for Zabby having played right wing back before. Your thoughts????
His favourite position is left wing.
That's what he might have said once during the Moyes era. But when Moyes played his bluff and put him on the LW, he kept having to pull back so he could cross with his right. He wasn't much good at all that day. So personally he should only play RW.
And put Masuaku on the LW (as opposed to LB)..... IMO

Left wing? When we had Payet how could he play left wing? The final season at Upton he played right wing. The first season at the olympic he scored 7 or 8 goals with his head , mainly coming in from the right wing around the back. We now have Anderson left wing. Antonio came on and played right wing Saturday and caused havoc on his own all things considered.He also spent quite a few games playing RWB
If he says i like playing left wing its because he likes plying there, not because its his best position. I liked playing defending mid but i was an offensive mid player.
Kouyate the cart horse liked playing Midfield but his best position was center back , but he refuses to play there. The fact that he cannot shoot or thread a tight pass through to anyone cements the opinions that he is best at Center back because of his height and tackling abilities.

Exactly! The reason Bilic stated they put him in the team is that they never saw his value in practice on a smaller pitch until they played him on the full pitch at full speed, then he was immense covering the length of the pitch as true midfield winger should. If he can bring that energy back to the right side and now with Zaba overlapping and interchanging with him, he could be immense for us again. However just like Kouyate, I believe he wants to play wherever the best chance for him to score is and thus the left wing cutting in and shooting with his right, is where he would like to be. Well guess what, you ain't the manager and this is about a team, so he should get back to doing what he does best on the right wing.

I agree apart from Anderson whom I think is a fucking liability.
He will improve, as well as Arni did, believe me.

He has that and more in his locker. One min he looks terrible and the next " Bam " we get a goal from nowhere!
Quite exciting to see Anderson one side. Diagrana the other then have Antonio on as replacement !!
