When he starts earning it!!! I too was on the band wagon early, falling for all the hype that he was going to be the next Viera, and true he does cover alot of ground and works incredibly hard at winning tackles. The problem lies in what he does after he gets the ball, just a guestimate, but I'd say 7 out of 10 times after he gets the ball, he ends up turning it right back over (either with an errant pass or poor decision to dribble). I think he will be an excellent player in the future, he just needs a few more years experience at loan in a lower league or other team.
Another problem solved with sisko not playing we can get Gerrard back in the center of the park where he belongs.
I think you are mad by suggesting leaving Momo out. He is one of the best defending mid-fields in the EPL. If he is fit, he is an automatic selection by Rafa no matter how much tinkering he makes. If we are to use pace and width to break down opponents, his inclusion in the team is an abolute must, even if it means playing Gerrard on the right. We need someone to stop opponent's counter attack when the rest of our attacking midfields moved forward.
Momo is still young and he can mature into one of the greatest players such as Viera and Roy Keane. I don't think Viera nor Keane were his calibre when they were 21! I agree his passing is a bit off, but you must look at him in the context of what pressure he was under when giving away a passes, usually it was when he just broke down opponent's play and he needed to clear the ball.
