Know I'm showing my age, but, much talk about who should start up front, Beto, or DCL, however Sharp and Gray played up front, and that worked out quite well. Not exactly the same, but similar, if he's brave enough to play 4 4 2 think we might be on to something .

I got a bit of friendly fire in here for suggesting 442 but i'm sticking to my guns. I know the game has moved on and formations and tactics are more nuanced these days, but if a team are confindent and willing to dig in, then I could see it working against a lot of teams.
How many times have we had one up front only for him to be chasing shadows for the majority of the game?
eg. I think with Pickfords long passes, having 2 up front could be quite effective.

I would love to see them play as a 2 but 2 in midfield gives me nightmares. I suppose there is an option for something like a 3 5 2 but that kinda negates the wingers we've brought in and would mean bringing Keane or Godfrey in, which also gives me nightmares.

I can see the nightmares there, but we've pretty much been a nightmare for years.
I just hope we find something the players can work with and is effective.
I can just see DCL and Beto supplying each other quite well. Holding the ball up and headed knock downs.
How many times has DCL won an aeriel challenge only to be stuck on his own waiting for support?
Like you say maybe not 442 but 2-up front in some other way.
I can see why there'll be pushback but most other formations aren't exactly giving is joy.

Yep I’m in the two up front camp, Martin Keown said he wouldn’t want to come up against DCL and Beto so with that in mind I’m working front to back with Beto to the right and DCL to the left of the front two

DCL Beto
McNeil/ Young Onana Gana Doucoure Danjuma
Tarkowski Branthwaite Garner

That leaves the Bench
McNeil/ Young
The keepers
With maybe Dele to come back
And the under 21s

That formation allows to revert to 442 .

Whether that’s sensible against Arsenal I’m not sure but I’m only sat in my lounge and not getting paid the big bucks ?.

We're all armchair Everton managers Big C, but you talk some sense there for sure.
Im just happy we no longer have to consider Holgate, Maupay, Davies.

We've improved, slightly, but still improved

This time next year Rodney.
