If you actually watch Argentina it is clear to see he far from just good because he is surrounded by good players. He makes passes that are all in him and that nobody other than Ndombele for the few minutes a season he cares can make.

What does work for him with Argentina is he isn’t asked to get the ball from CBs who can’t pass, run with it past his two MF partners who can’t progress the ball and then pass into a forward group that usually has at least one player not close to good enough.

It is funny when people cry about PEH having to do the job of three MFers, which is complete BS, when he is a major reason GLC and Ndombele are forced to do too much to make up for his lack of skill.-

He should be sold and his fitness/availability is certainly a concern but his skill is something we should be looking to improve on and we have nobody on the team to replace it and are even less likely to bring someone in to replace him if he is sold.
 
Might look better in a better side than us, but it's still no excuse for him throwing in toss performance after toss performance. Argentina are far from a great side, despite having Messi, yet he plays consistently well for them.

I'd now prefer him to go over Ndombele. As for all the latter's faults, which he currently has plenty, you can at least see the obvious ability there.

Fair enough, but he seems keen to take the game by the scruff of the neck and make things happen for Argentina, whereas that has been less and less the case for Spurs.

In fairness he was active yesterday, just sloppily so and trapped in a lifeless team performance.

We can’t rehabilitate him and Ndombele at the same time, that 10 role in the 4-2-3-1 is the spark for both of them. And Ndombele’s potential contributions are bigger and more needed.

Just a dumb spitball, what if Lo Celso was the false 9 for our ECL B team? He has goals in him, and it could hardly be worse than what we’re doing now.

I'd rather stick Dele up front and cross my fingers with Gio in behind.... Dele ain't gonnan create shit and at least we'd still be going some way to "rehabbing" GLC in a position that has meaning for him and us.

If Winks and Harvey White (who is 20 and has played a bit of senior football at Pompey) could work as a double pivot, that might open up a few options.

Sounds a bit like a disaster waiting to happen, but what we’re doing isn’t working.

Yeh, that DM role is really quite the issue in there isn't it.....

iz futbal iz futbal - Suggested playing Doherty and putting Japh in there..... Not the worst idea in the world.

Also, a big bonus is he has Paredes with him which gives him more freedom to be inventive. When you've got someone like that working hard to tidy up it is going to have an impact.

I still think he was bloody lazy for us the other night though.
