In my opinion, it is superb having Snodgrass and his work rate in midfield doing the dirty work so that Grady can use his pace and run at them and Anderson and Arnie can run riot up front. We looked like a team today with everyone given a clear role.
Long may it continue.
Snodgrass is a weird one this season. We got him in as a creative player, a job he is superb at at the lower level, but he's getting in the team for his commitment and workrate in the middle of the park.
I'd like to see Pellegrini getting a bit of deserved praise for giving a player most of us had written off a new lease of life.
I agree about Snodgrass, Saturday along with Rice and Obiang the midfield worked really well, now what happens when Noble is available, does he go straight back in....or is this the start of him coming in off the bench after 70-80 mins the other two Snodgrass and Obiang don't deserve to be dropped just to accommodate him. Looks like there is going to be tough competition for places in the starting 11 this season. that can only be a good thing nothing like a bit of rivalry to bring out the best in players, something we have been severely lacking for a long time.
