I wonder if Blind could become as good as him with time in that role? I am really curious to see what our signings will be this summer, especially in CM. We're bound to bring in at least one player there imo.
He's certainly got the footballing intelligence to do a Carrick, and actually has the same calm composure Carrick has (yard in the head, etc), and he looks as though he's got the drive and he's enjoying the physical challenge of the BPL. I think he could well do it but it will take another 12 - 18 months.
The other CM should be a Keane type - energy, drive, presence. I also think VG will rotate the fuck out of Carrick / Blind - and - Herrera / Mr X (eg, Schneiderlin). That's why I don't think it'll be a "huge name" or someone constantly demanding game time (Pogba).
Carrick is a bundle of masterpiece, I only hope and pray that he feature against Chelsea! Yes Blind is shaping up, but needs time to adapt to the English way of playing, his connections often strays to the wrong foot, unlike Carrick, who always tames the opponents and locate his targets with ease and precision! We definitely needs him(Carrick)against Chelsea! GGMU!!!
Depends on the damage, ankle ligaments aren't usually overnight if properly damaged. Could be anything up to 3 - 4 months, Spose we'll have to wait and see, still gonna leave us short for even a short spell

I expect we'll see Sean Goss getting on the bench soon then. I wouldn't mind if we brought Pearson back from his loan at Barnsley either. I don't think there's any point buying another cm, as Dave says we're pretty well covered there. Just need a younger player to provide cover.
