Its a bit much to ask them to close down that much when were playing such a deep defensive line.
Yes I think our defensive line is s**t Our Cbs take a step or two back even at the edge of the box when it is time to press and apply pressure on the player making it difficult to him to turn or to manage time to play a pass and this will get us in trouble.
To keep the opponent strikers on their toes and for effective pressing I think we should to play a high line.
Also, Spearing has a great engine and passing ability, many fans see him as a DM, but imo he's far from it.
I have liked most of what I have seen of Spearing the confidence he dictates on the pitch and making runs all over the pitch taking a shot or two.
I think he should be given a chance in midfield this season well it can't be worse with the chemistry we see between Lucas and Adam as Spearing has done well previously playing with Lucas.
