    We should play Torreira as a shield of the CBs. He is really good at that. I understand Emery ‘s thinking in playing him higher up but it just isn’t correct. We have one good DM and we play him out of position...

    Good post! For some reason clubs as ManU get the rub of the green with the PL refs, we clearly don’t.

    You can get away with a small DM if they’re very athletic like Kante. But Torreira is even shorter and 10kg lighter. Has he got the physicality and skill to be a great DM? Emery doesn’t seem to think so, but he didn’t buy him.

    Torreira might be short, but he is plenty physical to me. He also never has come across as to me not athletic . He is quick and turns well in tight spaces. He wins the ball back well and isn't afraid with the ball in traffic. I couldn't say that he is less athletic than e.g. Kante. But to be honest I haven't studied either of them in detail.

    He is good enough to play that role for Uruguay's national team and they, at least as far as I am concerned, know a bit or two about playing hard defence as a team. Torreira has what Uruguay has, and that is fight in them. That's what i like the most about him. Call it La Garra Churra, or whatever, but he is a guy that will put it on the line I feel and we need more of those on the team.
