So my favourite part of this game with the tactic, is shaping my squad to be perfect for this tactic. Lets look at the team and see what I need for next season
Jordan Pickford - real life I think Everton should look to sell him, however in game hes a great goalkeeper, only 26 and as long as bigger clubs dont turn his head hell be my number 1 keeper for a few years to come.
Joao Virginia - 20 year old under study of Pickford, has potential to grow but not potential to ever challenge Pickford, however good enough to play games Europa League/Early Carbao & FA Cup ties. Hes happy to be back up doesnt complain about game time so hes my number 2 for years to come.
Djibiril Sidibe - Just like real life everton have a decsion to make on whether to buy him for 14 million, hes been my first choice ahead of Coleman most the season and can fill in right midfield when Theo Walcott picks up injurys. He has good all round with no weaknesses I'm tempted to buy him.
Seamus Coleman - Similar stats to Sidibe, not quite as effective going forward and not as athletic. However a driven personality hes great for mentor groups for my younger players. Hes 31 and set to decline so I'm still undecided.
Jonjoe Kenny - On loan at Schalke04 and performing well and showing improvement in his game, hes around the same level as Coleman and Sidibe. There isn't room in the sqaud for 3 right backs and I want to keep Kenny. May look at selling Walcott and using Sidibe as a back up right winger, or even re training Kenny to be a right winger as he has the stats.
Leighton Baines - Everton legend but hes 35 and on a high wage, might keep him for his personality in the squad and hes still good enough to be back up for Digne.
Lucas Digne - One of my best players, 26 in his prime will be first choice left back for a few years yet, unless hes poached by a bigger club.
DEFS (Centre Backs )
Yerry Mina - Solid centre back, very good physical stats and important for this tactic he has good composure & team work so he doesnt cock up the offside trap. Hes only 25 so hes in the same position as my other top players, hes staying unless bigger teams poach him.
Mason Holgate - Good partnership with Mina, has good composure & Team work as well as being a good defender, hes staying.
Michael Keane - Better raw defender than Holgate & Mina, also better in the air. Lacks composure to be first choice in this system but his fine back up and a good option to bring on to see out games when I drop a little deeper.
Jarrad Branthwaite - only 17, hes already more composed than Michael Keane and has the potential to my best defender, hes already getting games. Hes a good fit for the system and could be an elite defender.
MIDS (LEFT Sided playermaker)
Alex Iwobi - Retrained him from an attacking AML, hes learned the role very fast and is currently player of the season with 11 goals & 5 assists from 28 games. I though I'd have to spend a lot of money to get this position right, as its the most important position in the system, but Iwobi has stepped up and made the role his own.
Bernard - Not learned the role as quick, but being right footed a good dribbler and creative makes a good fit to provide competiton for Iwobi, would sell him for a good offer due to his high wage.
MIDS (right Winger)
Theo Walcott - Doing a job this season, missing a lot of games with little injuries though, no plans for him to stay after this season SELL
Jack Vale - 18 year old kid on loan from Blackburn, decent stats for his age but low determination means he may not develop to the level he needs to, I'm unlikely to buy.
MIDS (Centre )
Andre Gomes - One of my best players, performs well in the midfielder support role.
Younousse Sankhare - Done a job this season, was a free transfer and will look to sell for profit next season.
Jean Phillip Gbamin - When he finally plays he should be one of my star players, very athletic, hard working and good defensive stats. Ideal centre midfielder defend to cover the left side of the pitch.
Tom Davies - Unsure, hes average in all areas, not creative or defensively solid enough to excel in either midfield role, but for now hes adequate cover for either role, will look to replace but its not urgent.
Gylfi Sigurdsson - Found it hard to find a place in the team for him, hes under performed in the wide player role, and hes been average in the centre midfield support role, over 30, high wage, doesnt fit into system will be selling.
Moise Kean - Been fantastic, scored 15 goals from 28 games. Hes young and improving hope I can keep hold of him.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin - Been alright, like @kr10 has said the PF(s) role isn't working as it should, will look to try a DLF (s) or a false 9 if thats the case he might have to be sold.
Richarlerson - He might have to go, would get a massive fee for him, currently hes not getting into my team. In pre season I'll experiment with the DLF /F9 role if that works he be a starter.
