Q: Where do you like to play? Mason Mount: “Midfielder. I’m a number 8 – I’ve always said that. Since I was young, I’m an 8”. Q: Do you think this slows down your progress [to not play as an 8]? Mount: “Yeah, yeah. Being able to play in different positions is so essential these days”

  1. He may think he’s best as an 8, but he really doesn’t have the positional discipline to mark both man and space in a 2. He may be able to play as an 8 in a 3, but we don’t currently have the right type of 6 like a Brozovic or Rodri to counter balance his willingness to make runs in behind and in the box. Until we get a player like this or Mount significantly improves his tracking, he’ll continue to be deployed ‘out of position’.

    I still prefer him as a pressing 10 or in a free role when the situation allows it, and that left sided AM is also a pretty decent fit.

  2. The way people here want him to play as an 8 is essentially in a free role where he’s pretty much an attacking mid anyway.

    Regardless of what he may think he’s best as an attacking mid especially when his job is to play between the lines and picking up pockets of space

    Find it odd when people here rave so much about mount; mention constantly him winning pots twice and then try to somehow argue he’s out of position. The difference between a 3 man midfield and a 4-2-3-1 is minuscule if not non existent anymore

  3. He’s definitely a “yes coach” player. If he’s told to play 10, he’ll do that. If he’s told to play 6, he’ll do that. If he’s played wide, he’ll do that. No sulking from Mount, at least from what I’ve seen.
    I do think 8 is his best, but so rarely do we see an 8 in the lineup… 433 would suit this team so well. 4231 with Mount as the 10 would be fine as well. 4141 with Mount and Kova in front of Jorginho (or a solid DM via transfer) would be insane as well.
    *Give me 11 Mason Mount’s and I’ll win the champions league.*

  4. I feel like a good amount of our side don’t have a true position they fit in for a back 3. The double pivot basically means a lot of our attacking midfielders either play as wingers or wingbacks

  5. Out of all the positions mason has played I prefer him on cm ngl and the free kicks

  6. I think the title is a bit misconstrued. Interviewer asks whether it’s beneficial or slows the progress down playing other positions, Mount acknowledges the question and says being able to play multiple positions is key. Title potentially makes it sound like Mount is agreeing that playing other positions has slowed him.
