What squad and formation would you currently select?
Apart from being a chaotic club from top to bottom, being poorly coached, and lacking quality and confidence, those players could also really do with some continuity of style, tactics, and formation.
I would aim for a 3-3-1-3, which could change to 5-4-1, 4-3-3, or 4-4-2 with the below personnel, depending on need during a match.
This would be my squad right now.
Combative, forward passers in the centre of midfield, with Davies and Besic who can swiftly become full-backs if we need extra bodies at the back, or Davies could drop into RB, with Keane occupying LB, and Besic and Baningime manning the CM area, plus good pace among the front three, and Sigurdsson in the only position I could ever imagine him doing OK for us. I know Keane is playing poorly, but he must be better than Williams, surely?
I've also eliminated Mirallas and Schneiderlin because they are nobends, and Williams and Martina because they are abysmal, and DCL because he just isn't offering anything at the moment.
Holgate Jagielka Keane
Davies Baningime Besic
Vlasic Niasse Lookman
Robles, Kenny, Baines, Gana, Lennon, Sandro, Rooney
*feel free to thoroughly slaughter me, but I'm currently bored, and understandably depressed, and I want to use this place as a support group at the moment for Everton therapy, plus I love loads of the ideas I read on here.
