442 05:45 - Dec 14 with 1074 viewsboncho1977

Can we all stop posting that we should play 442.
Firstly it is a prehistoric formation that’s hardly played even in the national league and more importantly we do not have the players to play 442.

442 - requires 2 box to box midfielders - we have none
You need solid full backs - we have 1
The defence will be exposed so the centre backs have to be rapid - even though Fridge is solid he isn’t the quickest
Also you need your forwards to have contrasting styles - none of our forwards can link up together

Also playing 442 - you are wasting the talents of celina and chaplin

So stop the 442 posts it’s embarrassing and it’s like listening to Mike Bassett

If we are to play 2 up top then we should play 3 at the back, we have good wing backs.
3412 or even 352 would work

The only thing worse than playing 442 is not playing 442. Def info

Are people asking for 442 or two up front? I take your point about three at the back - we definitely have wing-backs!

Dont be ridiculous. Nothing wrong with 442. It's how you play that matters, & we need two strikers up front. Football is a game with 11 players a side. But I'm a fan of 352 so there.

It's worth noting that the difference between 442 / 433 / 352 / etc etc, are merely a few yards apart on the pitch.

The fact of the matter is while people obsess about formations, if you've got defenders with toblerones on their feet, statues in midfield that can't win a 2nd ball, and forwards who it bounces off, then you're up the creek. We've looked bereft of ideas, sluggish, disorganised defensively. We could've played 4-4-4 last night and still lost.

It's a bit of a red herring to focus on the formation when we can't get the fundamentals right.

3 at the back looked better in and out of possession

Bless you all scratching around on your BBC apps. Barlaser drops back into the back 3 to make a back 4 and they switch into a 442 from a 3142. Looks like you were at the bar when that was happening though.

Game 15 for the season for me. Been as far south as Plymouth and as far north as Wigan. What you on?

Footballers move around during matches, shocker.

Literally everyone describes Rotherham's formation as 3-5-2 and at no point in our game with Rotherham was Barlaser more than momentarily occupying the centre back position. Watch the extended highlights back, in every single clip he's 10/20 yards in advance of the back three.
