    Yes definitely let's hope we pull it off. Him and Fernandinho would be perfect protection for the back 4 in tough games.

    William Carvalho bid to be made very soon apparently.

    As I have said before he isn't quick enough to be a single DM in the Premier League. He would probably be an excellent choice in a pair. but not on his own.
    Indeed I'm not sure a single pivot will work in a league of whippets. Very fast full backs will help - but even then I'm not sure it will work.

    I don't like 2 holders. 4231 is archaic now. Everyone knows how to setup against it.

    Single pivot has produced all our best football, and with a better pair of fullbacks, and a keeper on form we'd have won the league with it.

    Carvalho's lack of speed is greatly exaggerated. He's not fast, but he's the kind of player who gets around it with good positioning and great passing. I have a suspiscion (based on nothing) that he's our alternative if Yaya decides to leave, because he'd be a perfect replacement for this season's Yaya.

    another midget in midfield? no thanks.
    for sure he will be great playing alongside other midfielder in 4231.
    but if he's playing in a single pivot system like City, he will get crush physically by opponents.

    DM already set - Fabinho and Dinho.
    wish Yaya stay for one more season, he still can dictates play.
