Is he being wasted?


I think this guy is a great player, but i have watched him in the centre of park for spurs and he just seems restricted, i think he has to sit a bit more with no sandro in the side but i do think he could do so much more if pushed further up the pitch....... dembele out left, holtby.....lennon out right......bale leading the line, would love to see the dynamics of that set-up, be movement everywhere!

I think he was thriving beside sandro he had more freedom but with parker he isnt playing to that level, not criticising as he is still a top player

No....Creative Central midfield is his best position. When he first came to Fulham he played left midfield, he was too erratic in his tackling and was easily isolated, but Jol moved him into central midfield where he could run at the opposition and link with the likes of Murphy and Dempsey to great effect. One thing he is not is a prolific scorer, so don't expect him to score 10 goals a season.

Personally think Dembele would be restricted on the left, seems a natural centre mid to me, always been impressed with him watching him for Spurs. My favourite Spurs team would be... Lloris/Friedel, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekkoto - Sandro (holding), Dembele (box to box), Holtby (cutting inside), Bale, Lennon - Defoe.

AVB is probably still working out the right balance and where on the pitch each player is strong. Its a team sport so sometimes you have to sacrifice your own game to benefit the team. I agree think he's doing alright at the moment

I think he is doing ok. What you need to remember even in the forward role he wasnt a persistent stater so i think his position is perfect
