Stefano Pioli has come in for plenty of criticism this year, much of it well merited. Fiorentina have been predictable in attack, disorganized in midfield, and sloppy in defense, resulting in a return of 4 meager points from their past 5 matches. While the mister has shuffled a few things around—Gerson and Edimilson Fernandes have occasionally switched in the midfield, Kevin Mirallas and Marko Pjaca on the wing—he’s mostly stuck with his first-choice XI.
With the team now on 4 straight 1-1 draws and a clash against hated Juventus fast approaching, Pioli needs to figure out how to inject some life into this moribund group. While he should be commended for the faith he’s shown in his starters, it may be time to give some of the other players a whirl, even if they aren’t as well established.
So who would you like to see in the starting lineup next week specifically, and more often in general?
