McGree and Boland are both box to box mids as you pointed out.McGree and Boland are very similar players: box to box CMs. We still definitely need a new CB, DM and probably a dedicated AM.Jedinak style DM for the reasons you suggested. Our midfield seems unbalanced imo.Are you advocating for a traditional DM like Jedinak or someone who can set up our attacks like Isaias ?Loving the debate and differing viewpoints on how we should finish our squad.
Personally I think we need to sign 2 more players. We need a visa DM imo. This would allow Boland to play his natural box to box role while McGree plays as a 10. I think we need to get McGree as high up the park as possible as we all know he can score goals. This also means we won’t need Troisi.
We also need another defender to give cover and depth at CB. Having only 2 CB’s last season was a joke and completely unacceptable.
We also need to promote a youth player to ensure we have 3 u21 players in the squad. I’d love to see the club offer Toure a contract, whether that be a senior or a scholarship contract.
I’m also not sure why we need another striker. We already have Opseth, an improving Blackwood and Toure looks very promising as well.
Its not yet clear how verbeek will play in that regard but I have a feeling a Jedinak style DM will be the needed contrast to the attacking mids and overlapping defenders
However it’s hard to see one of them on the bench so one will have to play a role that isn’t entirely natural to them.
