Messi is quite good, bit like Mesut, and he plays to the right of Neymar and Suarez.
Much chit chat these days about Mesut, and as always, much talk about formations.
I believe he plays wide for Germany, and I’m also beginning to think The No10 role is a thing of the past. Couple of days ago I posted a line up for Bayern away in which I beefed up the midfield with Xhaka and Elneny in front of Coquelin. Along the front I had Sanchez, Danny and Mesut.
Chas thought it was a bit Maureen’ish, whereas I was trying to be a bit more Barcelona’ish.
Relevant bit for today is the binning of the No 10, while keeping Mesut in the XI.
As a No10 behind a front three, I’d expect him to be the 4th highest scorer. He is. I’d also expect him to do important passes, or assists, he does (2nd).
Could he play wide right? Yip, I reckon so. He is fast, both over ground and like lightning between the ears. Intelligence as a footballer is what DB10 had in abundance, and one of the qualities that makes Mesut so like the great man.
Mesut to the right? What do you think?
