He's been great of late. No question. About ten times the value of Sigurdsson on the pitch.Not something you see out of Brazilians, in general. Pienaar wasn't exactly prolific in that position either though so, as long as he keeps the opponent occupied and helps us retain the ball higher up the pitch or cause some offensive havoc, it's equally beneficial to the whole team.
I'm just hopeful that Brands and Silva can assemble more partnerships around the pitch like they appear to have done with Digne and Bernie and Gana/Gomes. Having those can add almost a third person between just two. I'm not a religious man but I pray, sometimes...for certain things.
