Hopefully once he is in the side we will start to dominate the midfield more, but he won't be a panacea or a silver bullet; our problems are multiple.

Only players regaining fitness and form, plus further forays into the transfer market will get us to where we were at the end of last season. As I predicted and was shot down for saying: we are weaker than at the end of last season. And will be even when Meyer is in the side.
We're Not Weaker,than Last Year.
The,whole,Squad is Stronger.

Yes and no and somewhat misleading.

You may be just about right on starting XI. But you are wrong on the squad as a whole. With Kouyate and Ayew, we have greater depth. And there will be injuries and suspensions. So I think overall we are in a somewhat better place, but the performances over the season will be the measure of course.

Let’s put it this way. I believe our overall prospects are better this season than last given our better overall quality in the squad.

I have to say that I don’t have any confidence that this will be the case. Roy will start the same side unless an injury forces a change. He won’t switch out Jimmy or Luka - Schlupp seems the only vulnerable one. If Kouyate impressed against Huddersfield Roy won’t now switch him for Meyer. The fact that Roy thought we ‘controlled the game’ against Huddersfield despite some rather obvious evidence to the contrary - less possession, fewer shots, fewer corners, more fouls - leads me to believe that he won’t change much at all.

Newcastle is exactly the sort of game he should be starting in. They will play with men behind the ball and challenge us to break them down. Our midfield at present lacks any real flair so I am hoping Roy gives him his chance.

Why should he. He made 3 changes at Hudds after the Soton lost, which imo was needed.

Well - ‘made three changes’ might be pushing it a little? He brought back Wilf and James - who are first choice anyway. Kouyate for Schlupp was the only deliberated change and it will be interesting to see if he sticks with that.

After Saturday I seriously believe our season depends on Meyer. We without a doubt miss Cabaye. We need someone to knit the midfield together and Meyer is technically the right fit.

Maybe for now we go with Zaha and Townsend up front and have Luka, Kouyate, Meyer And Mcarthur as a narrow midfield.

'As the season progresses'

We are paying this guy 100k+ a week, he looks head and shoulders above anyone else in our midfield yet he is still sitting on the bench. Farcical.

This conversation should give us all hope.

Last year we had no options; your suggestion is decent, made better by the fact it would still leave us Ayew, Schlupp and Benteke (when fit) as proper options from the bench.

One more attacking player of reasonable quality in Jan and we’ll be looking like a solid Premier League squad.

It's kind of strange isn't it, the team is weaker, but our squad is stronger, particularly the bench, no comparison to last season

Not sure we are much weaker we have won two away games should have beat Watford lost to Liverpool the only poor loss was Southampton and thats with no Zaha even with RLC and YC we could not win without Wilf. Meyer looks a good replacement for YC of course we will miss RLC as he is very good going forward but Ayew is no mug, we also have Kouyate another good player. RH has given Meyer time to get ready i think his time is near.

For me cabaye is the biggest loss and I harped on here enough that some people would only realise what he brought to the team after he had gone.

That said I like to think that Meyer, Kouyate & Ayew in, YC & RLC out was decent business, given that we couldn’t afford RLC & YC wanted one last big pay day.

I hope with a good run of games we get to see the best of these 3 players & please let Meyer be the superstar we hope him to be!

You cant replace individual players with the quality of YC, and certainly Zaha. You can only strengthen in other areas, where in that position we may be slightly weaker. And that is what we have seen. More balance across the midfield.

Max may become very, very good. And I think he will, but we haven't brought in an instant, like for like replacement.
