Michael Owen is a glaring example and Dele Alli has also had hamstring injuries.
there would be games (hopefully) when we were up maybe 3-0 with 20 to go and he could come off.
and in weekend (Christmas period) where there are loads of games back to back to back, again squad rotation or a rest here and there wouldn't go amiss
loss of form too, would help rather than tear the arse out of someone who is struggling to find form a game or so out.
plus someone like a DM who has played there for ages could help his growth as a player.
I don't watch loads and loads of other countries football international games mostly - maybe there's someone in France cheapish.
like I say I did see Pulgar quite a bit in the Copa, don't watch much Italian football these days. however a good age, good stats, good size, technically good and a Chilean international with a 12M release clause.
worth looking at is all.
if we take the logic that we don't need cover for anyone, why do we have a 25 man squad and a game day squad of 18 ? why not just have 11 and 3 subs ?
