I was thinking about why Meyer was more effective against West Ham than today and two things stand out.
1. When Sakho is playing he brings the ball down and tries to play football, whereas Kelly and Dann favour long balls. (For me this was the reason why our midfield took a while to get going today, other than Luka) This suits Meyer as he can get the ball off him in spaces and turn.
2. Meyer seems so much more effective playing on the left of the 3 rather than the right and I think this is because Zaha generally takes up 2 players, leaving more space just inside for Meyer to get the ball and drive forward. Townsend doesn't quite offer the same dangerous threat to other teams so there is less space for other players.

Or Ayew or Townsed or Kelly etc. But obviously the most direct comparison is to compare him to the players he is competing with for a place in the side. Luka and Schlupp are two of those and both of them were far more involved far sooner. As soon as Kouyate came on, impact.

Iím just glad to see he has the ability to smile

He looked a class above. I know it was only Doncaster, but when youíre a class above you need to show it. A lot of players can coast against poorer teams and not put that much effort in. But Max didnít.

He reminds me of a young Ray Wilkins in his play. Triangles and square passing. Lets hope he stays with us for a few years.

Good performance from Max yesterday, especially 2nd half. That turn outside our box near the touch line and clipped pass with his left foot was something so technically brilliant, but I fear itís been under appreciated.

Personally feel that the midfield 3 has to be kouyate luka and meyer, with schlupp playing instead of meyer against the big boys. Mcarthur has been brilliant for us but feel like meyer just has a bit more class, and playing 3 defensive midfielders is a bit too negative.

Thought he was excellent yesterday, up there for MOM consideration (though my vote would go to Luka... just).

One thing I really like about Max is that his first touch always sets up his second - he doesn't just control it and then look around, he keeps the ball moving a short distance and so is already on his way, similar to Yohan in that regard. Big fan.

Yes! Completely agree, was saying at the time what a great little piece of play that was.

It baffles me when people compare him to Williams or Bannon. Yes, heís small and blonde, but thatís about it. Heís so much more intelligent than either of them and is one of the most composed players on the ball that we have.

Whilst I really like the look of Max, I don't think he is strong enough in the tackle to hold down one of the 2 rental midfield positions from Luca or Kouyate.

Where i see him as being dangerous & a real addition to the team is in a no 10 role behind the main striker & a midfield diamond. His link up play & clever passing in & around the box would work very well with Wilf, Andros & Batshuayi.

This will give us much more of a goal threat than we currently have in the Premier League.

I felt that he looked uncertain of his role in our starting formation. Schlupp does not contribute much defensively to the midfield, so Max often had to drop in beside Luka.

He is not physically equipped to battle in central midfield, nor is playing longer incisive passes a strength.

His quick feet and short passes are suited for in and around the box and he looks happiest on the left. But that space was occupied by Ayew.

When Kouyate replaced Ayew we looked better balanced, and if we had been chasing the game rather than just seeing it out we would have seen more from Max.

He needs to play in an advanced position, all of his qualities are lost coming from deep, he has pace over a few yards and such quickness of feet, he is exactly what our strikers are crying out for.

What he may lack in physic he makes up for with his ability to nip in front of the opposition and win a foul, when they were in possession!

Fingers crossed we and Max get the opportunity to see more of him on the pitch.

Can we change the title thread to Mighty Max Meyer?

Max may be under instruction to pass backwards if there is nothing on, rather than boot it forward in hope and lose the team possession.

He may be entirely different if left to his own devices!

I have a feeling Wilf is happier when Meyer is playing, same wavelength results in some lovely quick one touch stuff around the box.

For me our midfield should be Kouyate and Luka holding with Meyer just behind the striker,in my opinion offers much more than MacArthur.

Didn't Ray say that MM doesn't like playing the no.10 role? He prefers to play on the left I think
