I don't rate Cairney.
He's not actually theirs, but Harrison Reed would be good in the middle. Him and Noorgard as DM options would be fantastic, both slightly different. Reed is more tenacious and gets stuck in, would be good against a physical side or a team you want to disrupt. Noorgard for games where we will dominate more of the possession.
Sorry guys, it was a genuine question.
No arrogance, or anything remotely like that intended – believe me, I am more than familiar with our own frailties.
I was just compiling a best of XI of the two teams, in my own head, and I kept coming up with a majority of our players in my team and I wondered if I was just wearing rose tinted glasses.
I won't make that mistake again!
Not at the expense of Watkins, he wouldn't!
Mitrovic is way over rated and they play as much more of a unit without him.I think we’d be foolish not to realise that both Cairney and Mitrovic could significantly add to our ability to win games that we might not otherwise win with the players at our disposal!
