If you're wanting to play our best front 3 in either a 433 or 343, then for me it's either

Richarlison DCL Walcott

Or

Lookman Richarlison Walcott

Or

Richarlison DCL Lookman

Bernard is only offering flashes in the middle third. Not enough up the field where it hurts teams.
Fair enough, but in a 3-4-3 I think it's different.

I'm thinking of how it clicked v Burnley, and Bernard was crucial. He played as a forward but dropped back to pick up the ball on the turn and drive us forward at pace. That can work v Millwall, I think, whether it's him or Lookman in the role.

Then it's two of Rich/DCL/Walcott for the other spots.

There's zero evidence he wanted Cocu.
On the contrary, theres plenty of evidence that shows he DIDNT want Cocu.

Everton chief Marcel Brands says he never suggested Phillip Cocu to the club last season.

Brands worked with Cocu at PSV Eindhoven before they both left earlier this year, with Cocu moving to Fenerbahce. The Dutch coach has since been sacked by the Turkish giants.

Brands told De Telegraaf: "It is not good to take your own people with you as a foreigner.

"For me it was better not to start with a Dutchman in the Premier League, otherwise you have two people at the helm who have not worked in England before."

Marco Silva became the new manager of the Toffees and Brands is "very happy" with him.

"I already knew him from Sporting CP, where I occasionally scouted for PSV."

Brands feels for Cocu over his demise at Fener.

"Normally, Phillip and Fenerbahçe... he would not have done it, but he was impressed by their plans, which is a shame that it's ending, the start was dramatic and it was always going to be difficult."

He thinks he's something special. He's one of the worst, or probably THE worst, Everton managers I have ever seen.
That’s a ridiculous statement the worst by a distance is FAT SAM!! I’m not defending how we are playing at the moment but some of the blame has to fall on the players. I think he should get this season and at least a quarter of next season to get more of his own players in to be judged. He is still dealing with a crock of cack players from previous managers once this is dealt with and he has his own players we will see change I’m sure of it

As much as I hate the dejected, planless performances, as long as we aren't near the bottom 3 he still gets a free pass this season for me even though I'll keep moaning after games like today.

Southampton have won 2 home games in 18 months and even this shower couldn't beat them. It was dire, just awful. I know the manager needs time, so I'll write this season off and hope for better next season. Emery and sarri are not pulling up trees at arsenal and Chelsea. But saying that, some of the players aren't good enough for championship never mind PL. Even if silva is sacked the rubbish players are still here.

I think he plays a nice style at times but my fears are he doesn't have a record and is inexperienced. In the bad runs he's had in this country he hasn't been able to turn it around. I will back him because I don't think hiring and firing will help us right now, we need stability and to complete a rebuild of the entire squad, but I have big reservations about him.
The problem is, it used to be managers had to work through the leagues to catch the eye and get a chance at a top club. Now it is easy to be fooled by foreign managers who win leagues overseas that are not Of a high enough standard. We all know Rodgers is crap, but he is winning a hatful in Scotland.

Anyone who thinks he is going to blossom before he is fired is deluded.He is out of his depth totally.
I hope he will improve a lot and be a success. I have my doubts but I'd rather wait and see than write him off so soon.

He's doing an extremely average job right now though. Probably even a bit below average tbh. It's not good enough.

I don't know if Rodgers is crap per se. He is just a bloody weirdo.

That’s exactly the reason why the comparisons with Klopp’s first season at them needs to be knocked right off. He won leagues in Germany and got to a CL final.

Silva won a one-horse race and boasts an extremely average record in the PL. Bizarre why we chased him as much as we did.
On the other hand, you have to hand it to Marco. He turned one good run at Hull into a multimillion career!
