The title of this thread is wrong (not wrong, just the wrong philosophy). We've spent too much time grabbing random players whose skill sets are often redundant rather than additive to our team. We need to target more players who will make the whole better rather than constantly moving the pieces around to make them all fit after we acquire them, thereby negating any advantage. The fact that Tanio was picked for RB, but ends up CM, Solli at midfield, but then RB, our RM Dane as the sudden #3 striker, the ongoing argument over Joel as better inside or wide, Ballouchy as the #10 who ends up on the wing, Rafa from CM to CB to CM, etc..
Of course you always have to make the occaisional adjustment, but we make far too many.
Even in our drafted players, people argued constantly about where should Tchani play and I have read more than once the issue about where Kassel should fit in (too slow for here, not tough enough for there, etc..
The whole DeRo fiasco was partly connected to the fact that every time we bring in a new player we seem to have to rejigger half the lineup.
It worked with Rodgers because Backe knew what we needed and knew the player fit the desription. More often player pick ups have seemed more like flinging the proverbial sh... aganst the wall to see what sticks.
Maybe Hans has finally been hit in the head enough to figure it out.
We shall see said the blind man.
