The problems was the midfield was too defensive, to much graft and not enough craft.

Meyer created as many shooting opportunities in 12 minutes as Schluup and McArthur did in a combined 168, McArthurs 1 being the assist. Despite that Schluup probably outperformed Macca in the middle and Macca has not looked good for a few games now.
The problem on Saturday wasn't the lack of chances - before or after Meyer came on. Meyer came on as fresh legs against a tiring defence - you'd expect him to have an impact in those circumstances.

Tbh, I probably would have Meyer in my first choice team, but I can also see good reasons why he isn't currently, and lots of the pro-Meyer sentiments seem to be based as much on wishful thinking as evidence.
