Why is a language barrier an issue? Surely you just get a translator in to explain it?

More in game changes I think would be an issue.

Could try something different and put in Perez down the middle with Atsu/Ritchie and Almiron supporting him.
I was thinking Muto, Perez and Almiron.

Think of the absolutely ungodly pace.
This is another option too. The pace, mobility and energy would be great. <run>

Hope to see Muto in the fold soon, surely he's more deserving of a place on the bench than Joselu. Joselu works hard but the quality isn't there while Muto's a little livewire with his movement, technique and pace. Also if we want to be more attacking-wise at home and still use three at the back this could be a option..

Dubra
Schar Lascelles Lejune
Ritchie Longstaff Kenedy
Almiron
Perez Rondon Muto

Even though it looks too attacking just imagine it, Almiron in a free role spreading balls to that front three and running in behind Rondon with Perez and Muto in and around him plus they can all interchange positions while Kenedy and Ritchie are bombing forward giving us a outlet on the wing then our back-three stays behind with Longstaff holding. Stuff of dreams ayy. The entertainers of 2019! <diva> <whistle>

How quick is Perez? I don't recall ever thinking that he was a speed merchant.

As well as that being inefficient, if your employee shows no intent to learn the language, it doesn't bode well for their intentions to stay in the area.

I agree it’s both inefficient and doesn’t bode well but in the intermediary position between them not knowing and knowing the language it makes sense to have one. What’s the point in signing a player that can’t speak the language if you then can’t use them for however long until they’ve learned it to a decent degree - that is much more inefficient

Yeah I wouldn’t have it as a long term arrangement but certainly for the transition period it makes perfect sense.

Yes, but given Mbemba had been at NUFC for 8 months when Rafa arrived, it seemed more a question of Mbemba's commitment, than Rafa's inability to work around it.

This.

As I said we do have intermediaries in place with Joselu and Schar both German speakers who have helped Muto

Good piece on Hayden. Life and family comes first, football is and always should be a very distant second. I think that he's handled himself brilliantly I hope that in summer he gets the move that he needs to be with his family.

That's a great read. As someone who didn't even move from Teesside to Durham for work (I commute) due to family network here for the kids I can't imagine what the length of the country is like.

I quite enjoyed living and working in Belgium when the family were back in the UK. I could go out for a few beers after work, eat lots of crap, watch football and all without being moaned at.

Makes me nostalgic just thinking of it.
