That's very true and we also had Dier playing DM and dropping into a back 3 when we were going forward. That allowed our FBs to be agressive without weakening us too much at the back. Shame it seemed to be scrapped for some unknown reason.I totally agree that our fullbacks are a weakness, but while a top dm improves fullbacks, top fullbacks will still end up over exposed with our current midfield options.
We have to start with addressing our midfield balances. The right balance in midfield enhances every other position on the pitch as it leads to overall better team possession and movement. Case in point, the same full backs we have derided were all exceptional in 16/17. Not just Rose and Walker, but Trippier and Davies too.
