The problem with us is that no other formation apart from 4-4-2 fits us. We are so inflexible.
The two formations which have have been talked about is 4-3-3 or 3 ATB.
The problem we have with 4-3-3 is that we have 4 strikers and need to play 1. Secondly, we are fvcked in the centre mid as it is, nevermind by adding anotjer cm. Thirdly, simpson cannot attack so it becomes a very narrow formation.
The problem with 3 atm is really the left wing back position. Perhaps chilwell can fill in but wont be a stable position. Another problem is serious lack of pace playing it, as neither wing backs have any. We may get away with it playing vards and iheanacho but just got to look at everton to see the problem of little pace
