Gil has had "plenty of shot?"

And Lucas has been more or less one of our best attackers this season so he's nothing to scoff at. He's been pulling his weight too.
Gil is still young and is not known to be a goal scorer. Played in 12 scored 0 against subpar teams. (He believe he will get better)

Lucas has been good so he is starting on the right not left.

Berg can't score for a lick.

We all know Dele is not the answer....

So who would you start?

Gil is 21 in a couple months. He's not that young. We just signed him to presumably to help with depth and eventually replace Son at the LW position. He should definitely get some starts here and there right now. Not full time, but at least 5-6 starts over the course of a season.
 
Gil's injured, not with Spain's U21s
Yeah I get that. I don't mean drop Son now because he's not even playing that bad. He's been our best attacker.

My point was... in the case that Son, Kane or whatever player struggles or is off form or unfit, they should definitely sit. We need to develop a 'next man up' mentality with some competition between our players.

I particularly want to see more from Gil when he's back, hopefully in a starting role with our best 11. He looks promising and just needs more game time/confidence, much like Sonny did when he first joined us.

He should be in the cup games. He shouldn't be starting against tough teams in the league yet.
 
So woodgate decides to randomly spouting off about how much son would be a great fit for liverpool if he left spurs. Despite the article saying in the line above that hes contracted till 2025.
Do these people get hired to randomly spout bollox and stir up shite where theres absolutely no story there originally
 
OK.. you win.

Son Heung-Min, our best player.. didn't play that well today. Hopefully he will find some form soon. : )
He really hasn't been the same since Kane rejoined the team. I think he was ready to take that CF role and step up as the main target up front but now he's back playing way out wide where he's not effective at all. He doesn't look up for it nor happy whatsoever. Needs to be dropped for a couple games.

But he's supposed to be our best player. Most of the players that are more on your mind are quite simply shit.
If I'm completely honest I was more annoyed by yet another poor Kane performance. The likes of Doherty have been playing like this for a while, and don't really surprise me anymore.

We by no means played any decent football today, but I'd still say that when Son and Moura came on we played better.

What could go wrong by droping Son, who has been excellent as a striker, for Kane who was devoruing tons of lobsters in the Florida coast. That was simply a stupid deciosion, Kane was way out of form and we dropped our best player for him, now neither Kane nor Son are doing shit all. Next thing Conte should do is play Son upfront and Kane just behind him.

Berg got dropped for Kane.

Son isn't capable of playing on the wing anymore?

Our MF needs fixing..... Gonna be hard for either to find some form until then.

Our MF has nothing to do with our talisman striker having a 4% goal conversion rate and -2 goals under xG. Kane is one of the biggest problems we’ve got, if not the biggest.

The drop in Son's form has more to do with his new role than anything else.

His most dangerous positions on the pitch is when he's cutting in or when he's able to run into space from a through/long ball. This is how Poch, Mourinho and Nuno utilized Son.

Right now Conte is playing him as an AM and his role is to dribble and drive up the pitch with the ball which aren't his strengths. By the time he even gets near the box he's crowded with defenders.
 
He's been poor of late, last GREAT performance was Villa i think? And to be quite honest, He was poor for number of games before the Villa one, as well.

In the current formation, Son could use someone higher up who's a better passer than Lucas, but at the moment Lucas has looked the better of the two, so it'd be unfair to bench Lucas.
