Formation/tactics for next season

Recommended Posts

From what I've seen pre season The formation will change in and out of possesion

442 out of possession, changing to 3421 in possession 

What I've seen so far is this, the right back or left back will get involved high dependant which one the other tucks around with the centre half's to make a 3, Dack is left to try and get in between the lines the interesting thing for me was Rothwells role he is asked to start wide on the left he is also expected to carry the ball if he can commiting players and pulling them out of shape if he can't carry he then tucks in narrow with Dack supported then by the 2 holding players the idea is to create overloads and outnumber the opposition in the midfield I think in these circumstances

the left or right back then provides the width on the left or right if on the right the winger will get involved inside or create overloads which means which ever full back isn't involved high will make the 3 at the back

When it breaks down revert back to shape 442, but it means which ever full back has got involved high needs to work hard getting back In with a bit of help from either of the holders

I will be happy with:

New

Nyambe Lenihan New Bell

Rothwell Johnson Travis Downing 

Dack

Graham

 

Arma for Downing around the 60th min.

Brereton for Graham around the 65-70th min

and Depending of the score replace Dack with Galagher whenever we need a goal and Dack is having one of his quite games, or replace him with Adam/Evans if we are leading around the 80th min

Just listened to an interview with Stephen Kenny there on Eamon Dunphys show. He said that all Ireland teams from under 15 up to under 21s have been instructed by Ruud Doctor(head of development at the FAI) to play either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3, nothing else is permitted. 

Not sure about that. Leicester won the league with 4-4-2. Sheffield United got promoted with 3 at the back. It seems to be the way things are going though.

Similar to how Belgium only play one formation through their system.

Re the all Ireland set up. I'm not a big fan of deciding on a formation and then shoe horning players into it. You look at what the skill sets your squad has and then you design your system to suit that. In my opinion anyway. It's like Rovers, if we still had Hird and Bailey on the books or even Perez and LeSaux you could play a wing back system but if it's Nyambe and Williams out there you're wasting your time.
