If anything Bacuna, despite playing in a team with as low a morale as possible, has shown himself to be a superior player.
Midfield is not the problem imo. Well at least not in and of itself. Without Bod in the team we barely look like scoring a goal and the tactics we have deployed have been counter to our efforts to win. In short Clement is the issue. An experienced manager would have found a base team much faster. The change must come soon.
No, he was under appreciated here. And now you're all starting to realise how good he was and how crucial he was to setting a tempo and being the one to drive the team forward whilst the others were fiddling about slowly knocking the ball around our own half.
Williams was a big match player for us. He was inconsistent otherwise. However his drive has been missed. Bacuna has been just as inconsistent but is a similar type player who could fill the gap that Williams left. I liked Williams and felt he was overly criticised on here.
