Heard it being said about Everton that the balance of the team just isn't right. Koeman trying to squeeze too many same same players into one formation and the result is players being stuck in position they just aren't effective in. I think we have the same problem and it all stems from poor thinking recruitment wise. When you splash big on ayew, arnautovic, hernandez then you think as a manager, you really need to be playing them. the problem is where do you play them when you already have antonio, lanzini, carroll and sakho? Bilic needs to find a formation (in fact he should have had this in mind long before signing the players). for me the only way to go looks like a basic 4-4-2. flat back 4 and antonio wide right, lanzini OR Arnautovic wide left, obiang and kouyate OR Noble in the middle and carroll and hernandez up front with sakho on the bench. Squeezing Hernandez into a front 3 and pushing him wide left is nonsense. better off choosing between him and carroll for the central role and taking one out. if he wants a front 3 then he has to play arnautovic or lanzini wide left, antonio or ayew wide right and carroll or hernandez central. why not pick carroll for 1 in 3 games to start, hernandez on the bench coming on last 20 mins or so and then 2 out of 3 games start hernandez with carroll coming off the bench? surely you need to play to players strengths not just force them into the side for the sake of playing your best players?
