Would say Eza, Rino and Kelly can all do the role.
In agreement I'd rather have bought in another solid CM than Baker/Ejaria though. Esp once they knew Bacuna was on his way
I’d say that’s rather naive I’m afraid, although that’s possibly the (incorrect) view the club took as well.
I’m trying to look at it from the clubs point of view. If you read my posts (fully understand if you didn’t), I don’t rate Kelly at all. I’m one of his biggest critics on here rightly or wrongly. But he has played the DM role.
The Ezatolahi situation is a little strange. He really should have been back months ago, and we know he is still there. I do wonder if there was a complication or he re-did the injury. 5 months with a muscle injury is a hell of a lot
See, I don't think Kelly has really played a DM role, because he can't and isn't suited to it. I think he's played a deep role, but it's not the same thing. And it might be one of the reasons you dislike him so much.
