I think he needs to work on his fitness and open another position for himself in the team, he definitely has it in him to be a left sided 8 in our 433, just needs to find it.The Smith is in real trouble imo. World Cup dreams certainly over. The Vieira signing has completely thrown things for him, before, i was expecting one striker and a winger. With that, i thought, ESR as the 4th choice winger, rotating, but also able to fill in for Ødegaard, maybe in the EL. Now? He literally only has one position in the team, and he's probably the 5th or 6th best option there behind Raphinha Saka Martinelli Jesus Vieira.
That would give him LW and LCM. Not terrible. 2-3rd choice LW and 1-2nd choice LCM in Europe will still get you 25-30 games a season.
