For Gawd sake Roy, you are too defensive! We now have 4 fit strikers. Let's be a little more adventurous! Benteke and Batsman upfront, Max and Milo in centre midfield. No more 451. Give teams something to fear for a change

No, 4-3-3 is the way, with Wilf and Andros either side of Batshuayi and Meyer as one of the central midfielders. 4-4-2 with just Luka and Meyer in the centre is too lightweight, especially if Wilf is playing on the left of the 4 - he can't be relied on to defend that much. He's at his best on the left of an attacking 3, let's play up to that.

Also, we may have 4 strikers, but Batshuayi is the only one that actually looks any good.

We’re far more dangerous playing 451/433. With the quality of our wingers, width is the way.

17 second half goal attempts not attacking enough for you? It was one way traffic second half.

And get over run in midfield, only Burnley play 442, but with no real wingers.

Absolutely no way Luka can hold the midfield in that system.

He looks half the player without Kouyate alongside him.

 


Employee of the month is a good example of how someone can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

we would get dominated and it's questionable we would get any uplift whatsoever in terms of converting the fewer chances we would get from any 2 player combination of the 4 strikers we have.

Guaita
AWB Tomkins Sakho PVA
Kouyate Luka Meyer
Andros Bats Wilf

Really want to see Meyer and Bats form the start. INstant impact when they came on against West Ham. In the first half we were dying out for that bit of creativity that Meyer has.

Anyone with half a football brain can see how dangerous 442 is these days, unfortunatly its only dangerous for the team using it!

433 is and always has been our best formation, Batshuayi up top. Our game has never been crossing, its why Benteke has never truly fit into out team whereas I can see Batshuayi being more comfortable with the ball to feet.

Max M has struggled to impose himself when we've had 3 in midfield so him plus 1 would be madness. He did play more centrally in the Fa Cup and was disappointing and was subbed - a poor Barry Bannan in my view.

Hopefully 2nd season with a decent pre season behind him we will see a better player. But lacks pace and not a strong tackler so I have my doubts.

I think we could go to 442 in games for final 20 to 30 minutes if trailing though - Tekkers and Batman upfront would be a handful

If our game isn’t about crossing, we shouldn’t be playing with 2 proper wingers. I think the reason it isn’t about crossing is that not many of ours can put a decent cross in.

This. When I think how Salako was able to run at pace down the line and whip in a fantastic cross, wow!

Would love to see Tekkers and Batman upfront together but being realistic (a bit reluctantly) I agree its probably a chasing the game strategy

Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.
