Yeah, in this 4-2-3-1 we're playing I'm curious how Alexis would do in the 10 position. He works very hard defensively so you'd hope - alongside Pogba and McTominay(?) - we wouldn't get too overrun in midfield, and he can still create plenty of chances.I'd be tempted to try Sanchez as a shadow striker or even a false nine, he always looked good central at Arsenal.
Beyoncé might want to sleep with me. As likely as Sanchez being of use.There’s a morbid hope in which I look at Sanchez and see a player that might burst back into life.
I’m being optimistic almost to the point of needing a lobotomy, but I might as well give it a go.
Competing for 3rd. Those 3 at top form, particularly Sanchez, would be invaluable.No one is answering the question though. If these three pick up form how do we do this season?
If Alexis bags 15 goals, Fred settles in the Herrera role and Matic offers what he has when he first moved to the club what does our season go to?
Yeah I agree we are really.I really don't like how our season is basically relying on a bunch of ifs and maybes... We're basically hoping for really unlikely things to happen (Matic/Sanchez to not be past it) / things that havent happened before to happen (Rashford/Martial to be consistent goalscorers, Fred to vastly improve etc) / Youngsters to definitely come good and be ready despite having very little first team exposure... And that's without hoping for Pogs to be more consistent.
And we kinda need most of these things to happen now... and simultaneously
Or flip it... if these three didn’t play a single game, would we even notice?If these three perform better this season how do we see things panning out for the club?
I'm not saying they will, I'm simply saying if we can get more from each of the above where does that leave us.
