argh see I don’t see him as a mid. maybe he was moreso this year. but at his best, he was a HFF who had an impact on games, similar to tippa and raz
having a quick look, that purple patch he only had over 20 possies 3 times. most of the time he was in the 15-19 range, but again had more impact.
so to me that aren’t midfield numbers, so therefore IMO we aren’t losing him from the midfield, if we indeed lost him.
and i’d agree, without the possibility of landing all 3 this year prolly wouldn’t bother trading him.
But he is still a player that is always going to have to be vigilant in his constant traning of his foot skills, cos the second he drops off from practising, he will drop off again like he did this year.
in 2014 from memory is was doing alot of extra kicking work to help rectify it, similar to watson did previously.
Coyler to me however is someone who is going to have to practice kicking every training session, every day, because when he doesn’t, something goes terrible wrong.
Again if there wasn’t the possibility of getting the 3 we could, i’d say keep him and take the punt that he can work through it.
but on paper those 3 improve us way behind what he can individually and as a whole, so if he can be used somehow in the trade, I hope they do it.
