See wasn't he an attacking midfielder to start with?
I think he's kinda taken over (or seems to have) the Mascherano, Dogged/Tireless midfielder role.... and because he never stops running and gives 100%
every game, he actually does a decent job in this role.
But it's like with a lot of our players (Kuyt on the right wing, Babel on the wing, Cole on the wing) although Kuyt has become a fantastic wide man,
Kudos to Benitez for that... even the Dutch use him in that position, we tend to play players out of position..
And all this "making do" and playing player out of position.... why?
We're not some bottom of the table, poor team who has to assemble a team of makeshift players and try as best we can.... I like flexible, adaptable
players as much as the next man... but jesus... can we just get players that we need and who are fit for purpose?
Poulsen was a crap buy too...
Not massively impressed with Meireles, although he's had a few good games... and the way our season has gone.. even scoring a couple of sweet goals in
a season is enough to make your name at LFC.
I look at our squad and I'm not filled with confidence... as I've said, roll on the summer.
But It'll be tricky to attract the players we need if we're not in Europe... maybe we should give some of the kids a go... heaven forbid I know...
Can't remember the last time we had a decent player (Kelly and possibly Spearing aside) come through the system and establish themselves as a first
We even flogged a load of our quality youth players a while back man.... crazy.
