This is aimed more towards the people playing with Everton, I decided to take a leaf out of Moyes' book and retrain Tim Cahil into a striker. Reasons being:

1) His stats are fantastic (Screenie)

2) Due to having alot of good CMs (Cairney, Rodwell, Veratti, Fellaini), He wasnt getting much of a game

So far hes managed to score 8 in 7 games hes played as a Poacher, had I have known this I wouldnt have signed Eduardo for 12 mil.

Wouldn't have thought he was quick enough to be a poacher but he seems to be doing well for you there

I thought that he could be the target man in my team with his aerial ability but he seems to be banging the in as a poacher. I'll continue to play him upfront next season and post an update for you.

He's actually amazing as an Advanced Forward, wins headers for fun.

I play him as a striker alongside Alberto Bueno or Vagner Love and he is immense. Last season he got me 27 goals in 45 games(15 league goals). He helped me win the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Europa League and also a second place finish in the league with his goals. He may not be fast but his heading, composure, stamina, anticipation and aggression stats are up there with the best and will finish most chances he gets. His workrate is also brilliant while up front which means he creates a lot of attacks.
