Olise would get destroyed playing there. Can’t see any option other than Swift to be honest which would be a waste and far from ideal but better than putting Olise out of position.
Olise is Realistically competing with Loader and Swift for that central role and again hard to see anyone but Swift being first choice. I think Olise might be better off starting on the bench and regularly getting 30 mins to build experience.
Our best 11 playersdon’t quite fit into what seems to be everyone’s Preferred formation
Totally disagree. Swift is a total liability in central midfield, saw him give away the ball in dangerous positions through being an idiot twice just against Sevilla.
By contrast Olise protects the ball well, plays simple and effective passes, covers loads of ground, turns out of trouble, can get away from someone he beats and has excellent awareness.
Not basing my assessment just on the Sevilla game to be honest.
Nor am I, hence the 'just'. Swift is consistently a disaster unless played behind a striker.
Hound etc. Obvs I'd prefer an actual midfielder to partner Rino, but I haven't seen enough of East to have confidence, whilst I've seen more of Olise and in his preseason and last couple of league games he's looked totally at home and hard working enough to have the best chance of pulling it off. I'm not asking him to be tough tackling DM, just work alongside Rino, hassle keep it simple and let him do the dirty work.
