What formation would you like to see for 2010?

I was thinking and I think that we can play with a 3 man back, sort of like this:

Quim

Miguel Vitor, Luizao, David Luiz
Javi Garcia
Ramires
Nani , Aimar, Di Maria
Cardozo, Savigol

Ok Ok, I was being optimistic as far as Nani's concerned but you get the point, we can play with wingers that will cover the whole side and move Ramires to his natural #8 position. That #10 spot might not even be needed depending on the team we're playing against.

Thoughts?

That defense would get raped. Miguel Vitor can't play on the right; he's a left-footed CB.

--------------Quim---------------
Pereira--Sidnei---Luisao--David Luiz
----------Javi Garcia--------------
Ramires------Aimar--------Di Maria
----Cardozo---------Saviola------


Sidnei or David Luiz or Miguel Vitor : CB

David Luiz or Peixoto or Shaffer or Jorge Ribeiro : LB

If it ain't broke, then don't fix it.

And it ain't broke....With the exception of an upgrade at LB and GK......

If you want to play with 3 CBs you need two wing-backs that will completely cover both wings (defending and attacking). Di Marķa and Nani do not belong to the type of players that can do that effectively.

I'd keep the current setup as it's working as intended and it favours our squad.

I agree, no point in switching up a formation that so far has worked very well and 4 at the back is the best option for me with full backs that get forward well.

Miguel has played right and his not lefty, matter of fact I can't even remember playing a ball with his left foot.

Ramires is a box to box guy who should be playing in the middle of the the field.

Yea I don't know why I had in my mind that he was lefty.

Ramires is good where is now and is capable of playing in that position. Yes, he can play as a CM but like many are saying here; why change something that isn't broken?

I'm still not confident enough to field only 3 defenders.

Why? because it's the end of the year and there's no games, we have to think of something :smileani:
