Yes he has decided on it today, previously he had nice things to say about Gardner and was supportive of him.

midfield 3 of davis, gardner and keef or tesche, brown, fabbrini? The latter sounds sexy but we'd leak a few goals every game

The fans are already on side.

The fans with villa tendencies aren't but who gives a shit about DVB's?

Snarky, but a salient point.

In a 4-3-3, you need a holder, a passer, a runner. In the way we're playing it, at least. All the best 4-3-3 teams do that.

Busquets
Rakitic - Iniesta

is the ultimate example.

At the moment, Davis is the runner, Kief the passer, Gleeson the holder.

Of those three, Davis as Rakitic is the best fit. Kief could also play that role to similar level.

Gleeson is a poor holder, so we want Khrin to replace him, fine.

Gardner is an improvement on Davis (supposedly). Another Rakitic.

To improve that midfield we need a midfielder who is a better passer than Kieftenbeld, imo. Kief is alright but he's not exactly penetrative.

Tesche is a good passer but not fit enough, and Brown can't get on the pitch.

The one thing we have in midfield is pace and dynamism, we need skill and guile. Kief has done it pretty well (the goal against Newcastle came from him beating two men) but he's more Rakitic than Iniesta.

I'm not sure this is the signing we need, but happy to be wrong.

I agree, but I'm basing my thoughts on us signing a further midfielder who is a specialist 'ball player'.

The bids for Krhin and the link with Mutch seem to indicate we are looking at bringing one in, so I'm happy.

Seems weird to sign three midfielders when we have 5 senior defenders and play 4 at the back

Think we will sign two.

Then a left back and two pacey attackers.

nah, Kief has been playing right hand side of the 3 every game. Gleeson has been the deep player because he can't run

Gleeson has been picked to play at the base of a midfield, or as the 1 in front of the back four (see the Brighton game) because he can pass and takes the ball off the back four.

The problem with this is the amount of hiding he does and the lack of physicality when players run at him.

He will almost certainly be replaced by Khrin, if he signs.
Only at Blues.

He also struggles with the passing aspect.

Bit of a stretch to use Barcelona to compare us with! That said, agree that midfield needs sorting. Not sure we can accommodate both Davis and Kieft in the same team if we want to progress.

He has to be a passer yes, bad wording on my part. He needs to be a Busquets type passer, someone who keeps it neat. Need an incisive passer in the other position
