Given the number of games that we have left to go, that Matic is already exhausted and we are not going to be able to buy a new DM in January. I would like to see Bailley tried as a DM, if we could get another defender in.

I am not saying he would become a world class DM. But JM has left us desperate in that position and it would give us some energy in midfield that would be better than the alternatives.

I'd use Herrera.

21 Dec 2018 10:05:11
I'm concerned that you could watch Bailly and think he has anywhere near the passing ability or spacial awareness to play defensive midfield.

21 Dec 2018 11:03:38
I think Ole should perhaps focus on playing players in their normal positions and see how things work out with that first.

21 Dec 2018 12:48:34
Maybe we could try mctominay in that position, instead of using him as a pawn to prove a point to pogba or prove a point to the board that they were wrong not to buy the manager a centre back.

We are shocking at CB so why would we move the only decent one we have out of that position in to one that he has not got the skills to play? CDMs don't need to be Tall bruisers - Herrera could slot in there. We could also stick in McTominay or another youngster.

Bailly can play as cb i hope.

21 Dec 2018 14:01:53
Phil Jones has played there before.

21 Dec 2018 14:20:30
Bailly is better suited to CB. If we are to play any CB in midfield I feel Lindelof would be best suited.

However, I'd rather go with Herrera.

Was about to say shappy I think lindelof has qualities to play defensive midfield especially with his passing range and reading of the game. If we were to sign someone like koulibaly I would not be against seeing lindelof moved there. He has struggled with the physicality of the league at times and he would not have to worry about it as much in midfield. Having koulibaly and bailly behind him would offer more than enough cover. He would be like dier for spurs except more talented on the ball. However, I can’t see ole moving him from CB.

Park, if Pochettino joins in the summer I could see Lindelof playing the Dier role.

I think the EPL might just be a little too rough for him as a CB, but feel he could be excellent as a shield Infront of the back four and dropping back to cover for full backs.

21 Dec 2018 23:00:54
I agree completely shaps.

What abt andres pereira playing that role great passer and good energy, just a thought! at least he likes to keep the ball moving and open up teams.
