It's been on my mind for sometime as a possibility I'd like to see us investigate. Question is who would be the wide men in that system?

I would tend to agree, however, I think you're oversimplifying things.

A formation is a "thing'' on paper. A system of play is/should be more than that. Moreover, frequently terms are conflated and fans don't distinguish between 'system' and 'shape'.

yes but like all things experimental there is most times a period of uncertainty and failure.........most were not asking why we playin dat, but "who was still playing dat".........even latapy was drillin 3-5-2 running scrimmage in 3-5-2......which looked decent by the way and then jump back in he safe 4-4-2 jeans when it mattered .........yeah d system requires discipline  and wing men with stamina......but sometimes we have to come out dat box we like to pigeon hole weself into and really try someting......we too risk averse as ah people....no balls

wingmen with alot of stamina

also, well i can tell you in italy, some prefer 3 at the back as alot of defenders arent comfortable in the central 2 positions of a back 4...and as someone said above...rel rel rel stamina is needed or else you can be skinned badly...alot of discipline to make sure and come back and defend..i dont know in this age of starboy-ism if players here willing to do same...

thats y manu maybe thinking of cuadrado...excellent winger that doesnt shun his defensive duties

too bad juve and fiorentina has such a bad relationship

Gotta say that I admire how Swansea is insistent on playing attractive football.  It is in their DNA.

They were opportunistic if nothing else.  Sigurdsson was real class, and Williams had an interesting game, he gave away a needless corner which lead to Rooney's well-taken goal.  Other than that he was brilliant.  Swansea played a solid, solid game.  I'm keeping my eye on this Ander Herrera for United, he's turning into a bit of a diver early on.

Yuh funnier than I thought- EPL is not crap and I could smell the satirical note - my contention is that we doh give the same credence to promote our own league- we doh look and talk about our local players to the degree that we do to the foreign ballets in my opinion, we idolize the EPL like these players are 'gods' of football

lol. At least yuh get it and ent start to cuss meh.
I just comment on football I could watch. I used to enjoy watching local football when I was there, but you have to admit, even when we get a feed of a game, the overall quality is poor. Is not like anybody idolizing the MLS, or the A-league and that would be "local" football for me.
