To be honest he didn't. He moved from 3 centre-halves plus wing backs, to a flat back 4.

He ousted, finally, the shite keeper he was determined would come good. He began playing Sarcevic as a No.10, box-to-box, with attacking intent.

A flexibility he heartily resisted for far too long. But, in fairness, eventually, he did. 

It all comes down to not having the players he wanted/needed pre Christmas.

I don’t think he ever envisaged having to use Gilks, once he did there was no turning back.

While you talk about changing formation, and I agree by definition he did, the touch maps of players post February suggest Williams isn’t far off being an extra CB albeit sat in front of Santos/Baps and Jones/John are next to the midfielders with their contributions. Not a million miles away from his attacking wing back philosophy.

With Sarcevic, pre-Christmas, he never had the players behind him to allow him the attacking intent you allude to.

So I don’t think it was resistance, arrogance, bloody-mindedness. He simply didn’t have the tools at his disposal.

Once he did we saw how good a manager/coach he is. He seems to have the full compliment; tactical, man-management, confidence, loyalty, commitment and a self-belief that he’s going to the top in his profession.

I pray he does this by staying with us on our journey back to the big time.

Spot on that, Williams was the missing piece in the jigsaw and he gave Evatt the means to crack on.

My lad has just phoned me up from the Trafford Centre uncontrollably excited. He just bumped into Evatt outside McDonald’s! 😃

Thought he was piling the lumber on. He needs to diet before we commence or League 1 winning season

Well done Evatt you proved me wrong. 
 

from a pisspoor start, Phoenix got fkd off and you turned it around. Had the balls to drop the keeper and change the system. Brought in some good players and got us up. I was an Evatt out boy but you can stay now 😁

Yes pretty much my thoughts it was just a frustrating/shite start but well done to him & his backroom staff

I love that Evatt is knocking about in full Bolton clobber, complete with mask. 😂

Though it was the day after promotion, so every chance he hasn’t got changed. Still funny.

He's 'Just Another Brick in the Wall'. 'One of These Days' & may bring 'Money', in 'Time'. 

Good news he's signed & tbh I'd not have envisaged saying that in January.

"It is understood that the Pink Floyd drummer is a long-term business ally of Bolton’s new chairperson and was persuaded to join the cause by Sharon Brittan herself".
