But while I was very pleased with our personnel in our win against Huddersfield and draw at West Brom - despite how dire the game at the Hawthorns was - I couldn’t help but think Bilic was making one mistake.
Javier Hernandez is not a winger. He needs to be played up top. If Carroll is fit, we should play with two up front and when - not if - Carroll is injured, we can adopt the formation that is serving us well at the moment with Chicharito leading the line.
All the formations we see teams playing in the Premier League and international stage are confusing to watch - I can only imagine how confusing it must be to actually play.
One player who you’d never play out of position is Pele. I was over-the-moon that he agreed to be interviewed for this magazine. What he has to say about Bobby Moore - and the possibility of him playing for West Ham - is intriguing.
I had goosebumps thinking about what would have happened had Pele swapped Brazil for Basildon.
