Are you suggesting that we have midfielders in the academy who are as good as or better than Meyer? If so, who are they?

By what metric are our ‘trainees’ under paid for a chance to make a living as a professional footballer? I bet it is a multiple of what they would earn if they fail to make it.

Who knows until they get their turn at an extended run in the 1st XI

Key season for him, on paper for me, our best 3 would be

Luka(skipper)
Kouyate (Physicality, break up play)
Max (finesse)

That McArthur and Schlupp performed admirably last year at times is noted

I still don't think Roy sees it this way, but I think Max Meyer is closer to being a starter now than last season. I think the draw back is that he's pretty one footed, and best suited to LM of a 3, but not as a wide man. This is pretty much Schlupp's position, and he hasn't done much wrong.

Personally, I might try to start with Meyer in home games and Schupp for aways, something like that.
I'm still surprised that Kouyate did not start more last season, so agree with you there.

From the noises Roy has made I think we might even sometimes see Schlupp as a no.10 and Meyer LCM.

A lot of hope and not saying wrong but it is just hope. Not based on evidence. Either manager’s faith or performances last season. The close season - as it used to be called - seem to be better by all accounts. But the opposition..?

This just seems to be a random set of words. What is the point you are trying to make?

I think might be a Samuel Beckett poem. Just nod seriously.

He certainly has the potential to do so. In such a non-creative midfield he really must be given his chance this season to initiate our attacks. He can run the midfield and has by far the most creative ability to slip Wilf and other runners in. Fancy he might get some goals too.

If we were to lose Wilf, Max would be our best player. He needs to start every game, and others will be needed to do the pressing to give him the chance to shine, as I think he can.
