Default the hated 451 (433) yesterday

unless i'm very much mistaken :~)

as has been pointed out by the more perceptive on the forum, it's not the way the players are set out, it's the way they set out - attitude, not arrangement.

yesterday was a wonderful example of how the flexible system we play can work, if the players have the right attitude. that kind of tactical flexibility married to a true united attitude can carry us to all the way in europe. beautiful, creative, imaginative football.

Definately! Full of movement and inter-change! Great free flowing stuff from the lads!

It works fine when it's not carrying players and always will.

I thought it was 4231

the back 4 with carrick and paul legend in front and this up front;

Ronaldo....giggs......Park

........Rooney


Altohugh thats a technicality. i agree with your points as usaul borsuk. I would like to see what the doomlords like tropical have to say on this as he seems to think this formation always loses

Yep as long he refrains from playing Rooney as a winger in that formation then it's great to watch.

I've never had a problem with 433 (remember Ruud, Giggs and Ole when we last won the title).

The trouble is it usually turns into 451.

The difference between the 451 of old and the 433 of now is the fact that we are no longer carrying Keane, and Van Nistlerooy is no longer the target man.

Rooney can play there quite competently though and I don't think he's the right player to play as the one in the formation. He drops to the left hand side naturally although I would prefer him to have the floating role that Giggs is normally given in the formation.

but seriously isn't it actually 4231 and not the old 433 of a few seasons ago we are playing now?
