Ultimately if Roy plays a 433 we are unlikely to see a creative midfielder in there apart from Luka who is a bit creative. Max is only going to start if we go back to the narrow wingerless 442 or maybe 451. Given that we now need to rely on Ward and Kelly (both good players) who are just no where near as good as the two defenders they are replacing it is even more unlikely Max starts. He's Roys 'game' changer. I've noticed after about 60 minutes if we're losing or struggling to break a team down then he brings him on.
Even Pulis realised you could get away with just two workhorses. Three is just absolute overkill.

Yet our defence has been absolutely fantastic. Given that we can't score for shit I get why he tries to protect it so much. Now that our defence is about 50% shitter due to injuries I can not see Roy opening up our midfield even more.

Catch 22 though, we'll go around in circles but how much of the problem lies with quality of chances not being taken due to restriction on creativity? Not to say we haven't missed more than our fair share of decent chances, but I still think Meyer being in the team with licence to do his thing with Wilf/Townsend/Bats results in more goals. If we can't be decent defensively with Luka and either Jimmy or Kouyate next to him we should give up.

I think it's more that he's one of the players off the bench that actually can make an impact. If you look at it you are actually looking at Max, Sako and Wickham if he was fit that can actually make a difference off the bench. Right now Max appears to be the one available.

I agree. When he starts he doesn't seem quite as good. However as a sub he is nearly always great. I think he still needs more minutes i.e. experience of the league, to get to the point where he can affect games for 90 minutes, but Roy doesn't want to risk having any passengers, so he hardly starts.

There must be a reason he doesn't start games. Looked so much more threatening yet again when Macca came off for him.

‘Pissed’
US: Angry
UK: Drunk

‘Pissed off’
US: N/A
UK: Angry

You got it right in the first post as you said ‘pissed off’ but ‘pissed’ in UK means drunk.

I would guess that management feel he cant sustain his performance for longer than 30 minutes or so, plus he doesn't seem to have much shooting ability nor appetite for defending, tackling or heading.

Most interceptions in bundesliga last season he played ... heading Iíll give you that but he was at least challenging for them.

Him alongside luka and kouyate and we have a top 10
