Formation for next season etc.

What kind of formation do you guys expect Novellino to play? Something about him that bothers me is that he likes likes playing players out of position, like playing support strikers on the wing (which I hope he doesn't do with Torino)

Im pretty sure we will play a 4-1-4-1 or a 4-4-2 next season which IMO we dont really have the personnel to play as our central midfielders would be too lightweight unless we would bench Corini and play Grella with Barone which im hoping we dont do.
With a 4-1-4-1 its kind of like a 4-3-3 but the supporting forwards are played on the wings. I expect Novellino to play this formation as it would allow Corini to play in a comfortable position without as much defensive his sort of Pirlo-esque role. Hopefully though Novellino will go with a 4-3-3/4-3-2-1 as I find Rosina isnt the same player when he is played too wide and the same would probably be true for Di Michele............

What I expect:
-----------------Ventola (Bjelanović)
Di Michele----Grella----Barone----Rosina
Parisi(?)-----Natali-----new cb?----Comotto

What I want:
-----------------Ventola (Bjelanović)
---------Di Michele-----Rosina

How do you guys think we will play? And what are you guys hoping for?

they would surely start:
di mi,rosina,

i prefer 4321 too, but , it said that, novellino is 442-wing style,DL/DR/ML/MR all in attack,2 DM in the middle, one fast striker ,and one target man

What Gazzeta suggest is this:

Di Michele-Ventola

We might get Lanna and Mantovani, which would probably mean Lanna instead of Rubin and Mantovani instead of Franceschini. I wouldn't mind a 4-4-2 if that happened, though we might want Lazetic only as backup and get a new left winger. Alternatively we can play Di Michele and Rosina behind a center-forward with 3 center-mids like you said, marlo.
