well Song didn't have that from day 1. though we need more of a finished product at this point.
Well sure. But Song had it by the time he was 21. His passing ability was unique because he coupled it with a physical game. He wasn't very mobile, though, which prevented him from becoming a player like Pogba, who has to be the most impressive 19 year old I've ever seen.
I don't think Wanyama is the passing DM we need. Nor do I think Capoue can fit that role. Ideally it would be a combination of Frimpong's physicality with Coquelin's passing and work rate, but it doesn't seem like either of those players will work out.
ETA: Coquelin's passing is somewhat disappointing, but when you compare it to our other midfielders, it might be more reasonable.
