BTW, when googling for those links I came across these two superb articles about his history, tactical approach, and man management which deserve some space of their own.

I've watched this twice now, and it still looks like we've won a competition to have Carlo fucking Ancelloti take training for a day 😍

Seems weird seeing him as a young man running around like that.

Yeah, that's where Gbamin comes in (for me). As a holding MF anyway, it'd be his job to cover for Sidibe when he presses forward. When I read about Carlo's tactical approach at Napoli (442 defending, 442 double 6/diamond whatever you want to call in attacking), he does use both FBs to attack, and the back 2 MFs cover where applicable. He also presses to a man as opposed to an entire team pressing. This allows the non-pressing players to focus on cutting off passing lanes. Granted this will also required those "interceptors" to have back up in case the pass does get by them. But I can easily see both Sidibe & Digne on the pitch at the same time.

I think many people get caught up in the "Sidibe is always out of position" nonsense when in fact he's doing what any good attack-minded FB does. We just don't have the MF support to provide cover effectively, and haven't all year. Sidibe leads the team in tackles & interceptions per game, btw.
When has he last used a pure midfield enforcer? He seems to favour a someone who can ping the ball around, at least since he moved Pirlo from attacking midfielder back.

And I don't criticize Sidibe but he would need to play a game alien to him if he stayed back while Digne bombs forward.

It's a good question, and hard to say, because the last...4 teams prior to Bayern didn't use one (they didn't need to). That said, I'm no expert on him; I only saw him play maybe 3 matches last year, but I checked real quick on whoscored and Gbamin's passing is excellent, both high volume and completion %. Plus I don't think he's just an enforcer. He's like Gana-lite and even joins the attack when warranted (2 goals last year). It can work IMO!

For a blueprint of what can be achieved by good leadership look at BATE Borisov who literally went from 3rd Division tractor workers to undisputed champions since 2006 of Belarus and CL regulars

You think this is a blueprint that fits with what we need?

Or are you saying there's lessons we can learn here?

Another lovely piece in the national media, by a Liverpool fan - https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/everton-vs-burnley-carlo-ancelotti-manager-latest-news-a9259996.html

Didn't think it was that bad to be honest. The last line is "As long as his energy and appetite match his ability and experience, Everton will be heading for better times."

The only question for me is why we needed another article questioning Ancelotti's ability. But as it is a different type of challenge at Everton I can understand people wondering if he has the tools. I just think it's cheeky to question a man who has achieved so much already.
