Explain the system Rijkaard uses. What formatin is it (eg. 442) and how does it work. Is it effective?

Also i heard he 'stole' it from someone else, a older team.

cheers

Well, the tactic is a 4-3-3 system, like this:

--------------------Valdes----------------------

----Reiziger-----Puyol--Oleguer--------VB

---------------Cocu----Davids-----------------
-------------------Xavi--------------------------
Luis Garcia------------------Ronaldinho-----

-----------------Saviola------------------------


VB is the attacking left-back and support Ronaldinho, who has a free role and drifts into the middle. Reiziger is more defensive than VB, while Luis Garcia gives the team width on the right-flank. Saviola moves alot from left to right, and is links up very good with the three other attacking players (Xavi, Garcia, Ronnie). I don't know anything about Rijkaard "stealing" this formation from someone. It's nothing special with it though, pretty much like most La Liga teams play, sort of like 4-2-3-1.
