Yeah the video said he used huntelaar and holler, so I would assume it was a strategic reason so we'd still want a player like that.No, not really. He worked with the likes of Huntelaar and Klassen which are similar to Cavani and Ronaldo in their playing style.
Pogba can play the De Jong role. I know it's a stretch, but I think he's suffering from the lack of a coherent tactical system as most of our players are.
You're right about the RB. Though a way I see him mitigating this is having AWB tuck on the inside as a DM in attack, while having someone like Fred push up the pitch instead of him. Actually he's using this tactic this season. His fullbacks turn into DM while his CMs push up.
The man is insanely adaptable. He lost De Jong he adapted. I'm 100% sure he'll find a working solution for our current squad.
I'm fine if the board want ten hag long term (I think barca get him) but I don't think we can trod along with ole for the season. We need a change now. Caretaker until they can get their preferred guy or just give Conte the year and a fat sevrrence if we need to sack him.
I just think clearing out ole and his buddies is the most important thing right now even if it means having to spend a shit load more money that could be used on a transfer. There's still. Time to do stuff this season
