When I saw that Brad Evans was starting alongside Ozzie in the 4231 formation, I was a bit worried. Soon my worries turned into full fledged feelings of despair and disappointment. It just doesn't work. Brad is an outside style mid or defender and often looks lost in the center of the pitch. Slide him out to RM and give Gonzalo a look paired up with Ozzie.
His distribution is easily better than both Evans or Alonso from deep lying positions and we really need that to break high pressure that every team will use against us. That would allow for Pappa to go out left and for Neagle to sit. Maybe Cooper can get in the mix somehow too.
