Yes he's a midfielder
I think like others say he'll go with Atkinson.
He’s never played in a midfield in his life. He’s a winger/forward. Definitely not made for a midfield 3.
Wingers are midfielders James (I played there quite badly for many years ), which is his natural position. I agree that the midfield of Elsnik, Mellis and CJ isn't balanced, I don't agree that CJ couldn't play in the attacking role of a midfield 3 with someone like Bishop holding. Sadly, Bishop is the only player of his type we have so I think he'll play Atkinson. He may even go with a front three again in a 3-4-3, but I think the loss of Bishop might prevent that. It'll be interesting what he does, Bishop is the most important player in our entire squad and at present is pretty much irreplaceable.
