We could actually try playing Wilf and Andros wide and replace Kouyate with Sorloth if he's injured. Macca and Luka in the middle, Meyer Infront feeding the wings.
Granted, Sorloth's not been great but play to his strength: stay in the middle, keep yourself onside. Head for the 6 yard area when we break.

Bentekkers suffers the same criticism when fit. No point having him charge about in the channels or picking the ball up on the halfway line when he's essentially a head on a stick.

Totally agree with this post

I don't believe being a title winner in Switzerland is right up towards the top of the 'Totem Pole'.In terms of Bayern Munich I really don't know how much a part he played in their successes but one has to question if he played a major role why they sold him on to Inter Milan.Didn't appear to have made a major impact at Inter Milan and was bought by Stoke.

He arrived at Stoke as a talented player but one not noted for his consistency or defensive duties hence he never arrived with any great fanfare, besides he did join Stoke who had finished in 9th place in the PL in the previous 2 seasons so were somewhat established and not a club that had been flirting with relegation season on season.

Ive asserted enough on Shaqiri and appreciate that the thread concerns Kouyate so perhaps the debate should really return to the subject matter.

Perhaps money and strength in depth!

You do tend to return to the original thread when proved wrong Willo

Sorloth has looked totally lost against sides in the bottom half, yet there calls to start him against arguably the best the side in the division and reigning champions ?

Would you prefer to play Ayew? Sorloth has looked lost at times but can hold the ball up well and has hardly had a start, at least give him that chance.

In life I have of course been proved wrong on occasions but in this instance I disagree with your assertion.We all have our varying degrees of opinions and this is the rich tapestry of HOL.

Threads can be de-railed by tangential comments as part of a hackneyed line of debate and I had made my views patently clear and stand 'Four square' behind them.Others of course had differing views.The thread had veered well off course and I felt that in the interests of HOL the discussion should return to the subject matter.

Returning to Kouyate, this is a player we really need against Man C for his sheer physicality and his ability to break up the play and provide cover for the defence.Man C get between the lines and he would have been useful denying them the spaces.

To me Sørloth looks better agaist better opposition and poor when they park the bus. Looked OK against Chelsea, not great against lower prem teams and against Boro he was s***e.

This issue has been covered copious amounts of time on here. He IS NOT overweight, he prefers not to wear the tight fitting shirts. To call him a lump is a bit harsh

I trust my eyes over fashion trends. He is what he looks: fat.

There's truth in this and I appreciate where you're coming from. Sorloth might not be premier league quality, but we can't honestly judge until he's played to his own strengths: making him receive the ball early, cover ground and get into foot races is selling him short. Put the ball into him no further out than the penalty spot. All down to coaching. If Roy isn't prepared to adapt, you're probably right and there's no point playing him. Who else though?

Do you think he would even be on the bench if he was fat? Perhaps a visit to specsavers is in order!!
