Let’s assume Onana starts and we bring in Gueye/another to play defensive midfield, where do we then play Iwobi?
I’d also wonder where we play McNeil, as his lack of pace doesn’t cut him out to be part of a front three. He has ability centrally but, again, we’ll already be struggling to fit Iwobi in there, let alone McNeil.
I get it; it’s a squad game and not all the pieces of the puzzle have been recruited so the bigger picture may yet become clearer. But purely in isolation, I feel we’ve brought in stronger players who have good character, but I’m still not sure how everything all fits together.
Jury’s still out until the end of the window - there’s too much still missing to say our approach is better, at the moment.
(But I’m still far more positive, overall, than I was a month ago!)
