Fabregas, Pedro and William are pretty decent reserves.

We had more young/reserve players on the pitch than they did.

The change from first to second half was pushing Davies forward into a 4-2-3-1 formation.

That got the midfield closer to the front three which enabled closing down to be done higher up the pitch and also shorter passing angles.

This in turn enabled the full backs to get higher up the pitch pushing their wing backs, back.

Thought we tried to do this in the first but they had too many easy possession routes which dragged the whole team back, isolating Rooney (which isnít what you want) and the other two forwards.

Unsworth definitely has something to build on and I am optimistic we will see a reversal in recent fortunes and play better football.

I guess for tonight's game he wanted to mostly play players that he was most familiar with including some he managed at different times for the U23s and many from the pre-Koeman period. In some ways, the advantage is that he will feel no obligation to play (or rather shoehorn) the likes of Sigurdsson, Klaassen, Martina, Sandro etc all in the same team because he didn't sign them so I am confident Unsworth will come up with a system to take advantage of the current players he has at his disposal.

Encouraging. DU has set his stall out and shown us how he wants to play. Really interested to see who he starts in his first 11, against Leicester. Especially out wide. Not like we have many options out there.

Lookman is worth his place. He offers something others don't.

Love the guy. I really do. However, we can't hire him. If we are trying to build a CL team we need a big name that can recruit. We aren't plucky old Everton anymore. If he wants to be our manager he needs to go win big somewhere else. Let us hire him from a lesser club.

It pains me to say it. It does. He is a great servant to the club. But if we want to spend big and recruit with the best we need a name to go with it. One that not only can draw English talent but also German, Italian, French, etc. I don't want to see us win by grit or negative football. I want to see us play proactively and not just knick games against the big clubs. I want ambition and prestige to come back to us and feel that if we hire him it will be like LCFC hiring Shakespeare. We cannot be drawn into emotion but need to remain objective with what we want and who can get us there.

I realize I may receive flack from this post (mainly from those that don't consider me a true blue by being American and not have season tickets). However, I think what I say does have reason. I'm happy to debate and discuss though.

Your opinion matters as much as anyone else BTW

In addition, we can't hire him because Koeman's tactics were garbage. Comparing someone to your previous failures vs what he offers going forward is criminal and will only make us continue on our current path.
