I was against Saad early as I thought he was purely a shortish attacking HBF, and I didn’t think we needed him. But someone put up a stat that indicated he goes alright in the defensive stakes.
While I have no idea how true that is, because quite honestly who watches GCS, it could mean that Saad might make a very good Baguley replacement. And we definitely need one of those.
Having a player with both attacking and defensive skills also seems to match Worsfolds MO.
