Everyone is talking about Ndombele

It will be really sad if we don't get the best out of him.

From Bale to Skipp everyone that sees Ndombele in training says he's amazing so what's the issue with match day? Maybe he wants to a free role and given the ball as much as possible.
Nuno needs to create a system thay gets him the ball off the CBs.

Dele has played ok but has had some sloppy moments.

Now is not the time to give up on Ndombele.
Nuno has to get him to play like he can, all the time.
Ndombele has great potential.

For me his strengths are his ball retention in tight areas, his ability to thread penetrating balls through the lines, and his ability to break lines with some skill & dribbling. These skills make a massive difference when against a press because he will find the spaces and take opposition players out of the game.


All of these attributes work best from a more of a traditional CM or slightly deeper sitting CM position. These positions require hard work, energy and mobility, These are not his strengths.

Give him a free role and i do not think he will be involved enough or in the right areas of the pitch that play to his strengths.

Overall, if he was genuinely box to box he would be an awesome, complete player. If he was made to realise this then he would be one of the best in the league. Just doesnt seem to be that driven. Hopefully Nuno will inspire him and build a team around him.

If only Ndombele had the athleticism of Sissoko

Never understood Tanguy. Played week-in week-out for Lyon, was outstanding most games. Comes to us, instantly unfit. I get it takes a while to settle in, but it has been nearly 2 years now... Really hope he kicks on this season

I think in a 352 he could work best but not in a double pivot

You don't see many players with a free role these days. The game is so tactical and players need to be able to offer something without the ball. Reminds me a bit of the dilemma that United have with Pogba.
