    Don't think pace is that essential for a number 10. Obviously it'd help and it's preferable but if he had pace either side of him and up front, that'd be fine. I'd like to see him tried there with Sako and RVLP out wide and Dicko in front of him.

    Only if Dangerous gets injured though, of course.

    I think he could work well there but as he says it would take time to learn that newer role.
    It should be a last resort though if we are stuck with what we have, we should be going out and bringing in a no.10 today.

    He doesn't really lack pace full stop either, he just lacks pace for a wide man, who more often than not are the quickest players in the team.

    I mentioned this as a potential option last season as he has a good eye for a pass, can travel with the ball and as we saw (again) on Saturday can shoot from distance. The other option that I think could work there is Afobe. I was really impressed with his link-up play against Blackpool and coming up through the Arsenal ranks, obviously has a good degree of technical ability.

    Of course, I would much rather us just sign another natural Number 10...

    It's worth a go. The lad has a lot of ability but just lacks real pace however and as Sketch says not essential.

    Yes let him have a go but another example of a square peg in a round hole .He has never played there.

    He's a very decent footballer though, Jonzy. He has bags of ability, just lacks the pace to get past his man out wide. I do get what you're saying though, about square pegs in round holes, but if we're running out of options, and no reinforcements coming in, it would hardly hurt us to try. Either way, it looks like Jacobs is out of the picture.

    Agreed but looking at it from a positive angle Jonzy he may turn out to be a natural? Nothing ventured etc.

    I think if he was a natural in that position then KJ would know. I'm sure he's tried him there in training. It was a great goal on Saturday but doesn't mean he'd do it all the time playing in that position. His strength is whipping crosses in, problem with that though is that we don't get enough bodies in the box to get on the end of them...

    My only issue with Henry, is that sometimes he's a little selfish and will try too much himself rather than laying off the ball to someone in a better position. I've noticed several times players in better positions berating him. Outrageous goal the other day aside.

    I think that's very similar to RVLP, But I agree the No10 must be someone who can bring others into the game and slot people in with intelligent passes.. Edwards isn't that...

    Henry started off at an attacking midfielder. But it was KJ that moved him out wide.

    I like this idea. A nice touch, ability to drop his shoulder and go past a player, but lacking that real pace on the wing. I think the no.10 role could be a natural progression for him as a player - so long as he'll work hard off the ball.

    Mentioned previously, but i'd also try Iorfa as a Central Midfielder. I can't see why he's being put at Right Back, a position which, i feel, you can get away with a 'bit of a passenger' - actually, we've got a good enough option with Doherty.

    For me, Iorfa has all of the attributes to succeed in this position. A great touch, pace, power and the ability to pass a ball. He's certainly showing more ability to get up and down a pitch that our current options.

    I agree in part about Dom. Could see him playing one of the deeper midfield roles, just guarding the defence but with the ability to run forward on occasion, not sure I would have him as the furthest forward though. That said, from what I have seen of him, he is a talented lad, and young enough to be able to play anywhere with time I reckon.

    And Dicko is four foot six. Wing play and a striker that is Edgys height seem a strange mix. That is why we also need a drive down the middle, have a shot occasionally number ten

    Debateable but if so it's more than the MM's do.
