Hello everyone
Just like to ask the Eds and posters about Zinchenko.
I have gave him stick here on a couple of occasions in the past when he has played at lb and he has been poor. I seen him play in midfield which showcases his skills more and he is obviously a very good footballer but no lb.
Do you think he could do a job in midfield and save us looking to by a dm.
Views greatly appreciated.

{Ed014's Note - that’s the issue Bill, I don’t think he’s a defensive mid and with our progression it would feel like a backward step.

Whilst he has ability going forward are we really looking at another almost attacking mid.

If we get a quality DM to play alongside Declan and Martin there won’t be many teams with a better midfield.

I really like Partey, just age and more so his constant injuries are a killer as he needs regular football to get to his best.

It’s a shame Tierney doesn’t fit the role profile for the LB in Arteta’s plan.

I’ve also no idea of the plan for Timber as he came on in place of Ben on the right.?‍♂️

Agree0 Disagree0

If Zinchenko were to stay i'd like to see him in the left 8 role. I don't like his defending as an lb and he takes too many risks on the ball to be a deep-lying playmaker.

One way to set up would be Rice as a 6 flanked with two 8's (Odegaard on the right and Smith Rowe/ Vieira/ Zinchenko/ new signing on the left) . As a more defensive option Rice could be the left 8 and a dm (Partey/ Jorginho/ new signing) would be 6.

Thanks for your views Ed mate.
Can see where your coming from.
Be interesting who Mikel has in his sights for a dm role
All the best to you and the wife❤❤.

{Ed014's Note - welcome Bill mate, will be so interesting to see what we do in the window and how quickly we do it.

Thank you too Bill and the same to you and yours!

Waiting for some cheeky sausage to say, "I'd like to see him in the left out role". Go on Mal, you know you want to.

I'm sure MA said he signed Timber because he can play multiple positions including DM so might be an option too now Benny has made RB his and we also have tommy as very good cover for both sides and all 3 can also play CB so I fully expect a LB to come in also a ST and then CM/ DM would be icing on the cake.

To be fair Mal has Martinelli already filling the left out role. I also think he had an average season particularly goals wise but if we buy a big main striker ( Isak for me please) thought Martinelli played really well down the right v Everton! If we are as we are Tross Kai/ Isak Saka with Martinelli covering Saka is fine by me with Neto rotating with Tross! Good to go with a top quality Partey replacement COYG FOYS.
