The central midfield is a real problem area, I won't be popular for saying it but Jake Doyle Hayes sitting in front of the back four isn't good enough either. We took a kid who in his first 8 or 9 games for us, was playing a bit of an all-action role, looking for passes ahead, trying to unlock opposition defences and doing a bit of dirty work as well and he was doing so to great effect going by the number and quality of the chances we created compared to before he joined but since the turn of the year, we've papped him in front of the back 4 and left him to take short passes from our centre halves and move the ball on 10 yards sideways. What the f**k is that all about?!
He was pish against Killie, Motherwell and St. Johnstone because instead of playing to his strengths and have him trying to open other teams up, we have told him so sit even deeper. Deeper than even Erhahon!
If you swapped him and Erhahon and gave them one another's roles you'd see an immediate improvement. Erhahon is an excellent holding mid and tidy in possession but not an expressive or forward thinking player. JDH is both tidy and creative.
Still, don't need to worry about that, we won't be seeing him for next 10 games. In his wake, get Erhahon back into that holding mid role and put Foley in beside McGrath....that would be a well balanced central midfield 3.
