my theory for a new formation

------------------Cech-------------------

-------Alex-----Terry-----Carvalho--------

----------Makalele/Essien/Mikel------------

---------Ballack----------Lampard---------

Joe Cole------------------------------Kalou

-------------Drogba----Anelka--------------

With this new formation we can:

Positives

-Play with 3 center-backs

-The defensive midfielder will protect the defense

-Drogba and Anelka could play together

-We dont need to buy a good right-back

-we could sell A.cole

-We only need to buy Wingers

-Attaking formation

Negatives

-No Width

-Not enough flair

-Wingers will have to track back

-Open to counter-attack

that would be ok against weaker opposition, where we have the majority of the posession, but would fall down against anyone decent teams, especially if they have good wingers. also, the last couple of matches has seen our full backs getting forward a hell of a lot more that the last year or so. cole was our furthest forward player at times on wednesday, and i think thats a lay we can use more and more, as opposition defenders try to control our 3 forwards.

Playing three at the back would be a disaster. This outmoded system has not been played by a top team for years. As you quite rightly state it makes a team terribly vulnerable to the counter attack -- long diagonal balls to the flanks, stretching the centre backs out of position. While this sytem worked in the seventies and eighties two centre backs with a sweeper, the game was much slower then, if the ball was lost the teams would have time to get back their shape, now , with the pace an athleticism of the modern game, there just isn't that time and we would concede goals in every game.

For me, 4-3-3 every time.

I also threw the '3 at the back' idea out there ages ago. But my formation (with today's players) looked more like this:

------------------Cech-------------------

-------Alex-----Terry-----Carvalho--------

Bel-------------Makalele------------Bridge

---------Ballack----------Lampard---------

-------------Anelka----Drogba------------
