Just going to throw it out there that I think the thing which really hinders Cleverley is the shape that we play. We employ essentially a 4-2-3-1 (call it a 4-5-1 or 4-4-1-1 or whatever, same shit). In this lineup, Cleverley is not technically sound enough nor productive enough in goals/assists to operate in the #10 role behind the striker (especially when we have Rooney and Kagawa), but he isnt a defensive holding midfielder either, which is the role that the "2" tend to play in this 4-2-3-1. The system which would suit Toms natural game would be that of a 4-3-3, whether you have a single holding midfielder playing behind two central midfielders, and then the front three playing well ahead. In this role he has the freedom to get forward and exploit the space left behind the 3 attackers and thread passes through, without being under pressure to be the one to deliver, but he is also not so defensively liable and can therefore afford to venture forward. In an England midfield of say Carrick sitting behind Wilshere and Cleverley, he would thrive.
