    Given he and Carvalho are the same age and we had Dowell last year (when presumably Carvalho wasn't as good) I wouldn't say there's an awful lot of difference between them.

    Dowell clearly a bigger goal threat, Carvalho more fundamental to connecting play. Dowell often stayed pretty central and play either went through him, or towards the end, didn't.

    Carvalho moved from side to side to keep connecting play. This was crucial to Karanka's 'trial and error' system of trying to find ways through.

    Ultimately that's why he's not needed right now. The 'trial and error' comes from the full backs down the channels.

    ‘Trial and error’ is the Spanish style. Under Karanka we played very similar to the way Benitez’s teams play - probing and waiting for the opening. Similar to the way other La Liga teams play, but with a British flavour.

    Played deeper last night and was supposedly outstanding for the Blades as they beat Boro.

    Surprised he hasn't scored for them yet, but the blunts I talk too all sing his praises highly.

    Good player, but doesnt get about the pitch any where near quick enough to fit in with what we're doing now.

    He has the potential to be a good player, but yeah, his lack of pace means there’s a ceiling on the level he’ll eventually play at.

    I'm a lone wolf. Just minus the mindless killing.

    I'd be with you, but my perception of sky sports is Merson et al talking utter rubbish.
