Same position, different roles


Recommended Posts

Read somewhere that the Gene Hackman felt Kalou couldn't play as a winger in a 442 lineup (if FM09 is anything to go by, this statement is false, but anyway.....) but deployed him as one in our standard 433. How does the formation impact the role of the winger? What other positions are affected in a similar manner?

Discuss please (formations not limited to 442/433).

4-1-2-1-2 has it's limitations. It still has the holding midfielder, 2 wingers and a CAM , but the CAM will have to work a lot harder and play the CM and CAM role.

4-3-3 gives the wingers up top a lot more freedom and less need for them to come back and defend. But 4-4-2 makes the wingers come back and help out their full backs with defending.

What LFS said was that he felt Kalou couldn't play in a 4-4-2 purely because his defending was just not good enough. I can see where LFS is coming from, but there's no reason why he couldn't just work on his defending in training.
