is 4-3-3 a possibility, at least against weaker sides?

Personally feel in situations akin in the future that we will be all the better for not having Duncan leading the line.
Not Duncan's fault but the natural order for players was to start lumping it long in those situations. We have more quality than that.
Im a big fan of a 3-5-2, but I recall us trying that @ Chelsea a cple of seasons back & getting funkin flogged all over the park.
Got to have the correct cattle to play that style, though the Herd we are assembling ceretainly on papaer looks much more flexible than in recent seasons.

4-4-3 is a option but i cnt see moyes playing tht

Perhaps... I'm more concerned at what a couple of injuries could do. VDM and Hibbert are not looking too good now and the season's not even started.
Wouldnt worry about it.............Done without vdm last season, and Neville and Pistone are adequate cover for Hibbo.

a 4-3-3 can easily be reverted into a 4-5-1 but we will usually stay with the latter and theres nothing worse than seeing balls lumped forward hoplessly - there was a 4-5-1 fetish around for a period last season or last - dont wanna c it happenin again thnks!

4-3-3 with our midfield? we'd get absolutely arse raped
Read the posts mate, people are saying when we play weaker teams we should perhaps be a little more aggressive in our approach to certain games.

it's not just a half hearted opinion, it is fairly well backedu p in my eyes, look at it this way
if we play 3 up front that's all well and good if you can provide them. but this would leave our 3 midfielders needeing to create and we only have 1 of them that's creative, and therefore it would be a lot easier for a team playing us to null our threat by taking him out the game and still havign a spare man in midfield
another point, to play 3 center mids genuinly it would be ideal to have some good alround players, especially good defensively, only really neville has that, well he kind of does compared to the rest
and to finish it off, our mids will have to take up more responsibility defensively, taking cahill out of beign a goal threat which is his main strength and only real asset
with all points considered, cahill less effective having to stay deeper, the midfield beign easier to overrun, , and the lack of creativity we would have which is greatly needed would result in us not really doing too much in my opinion apart from a lot of ball chasing and inviting a lot of pressure. even agaisnt the lesser sides of the league, they're still good, well disciplined (in the most part) professionals and they will hurt an average team playign in that formation, if we struggled against sunderland last season with a 4-5-1 we're not exactly going to immediately start outplaying people with 4-3-3 are we?
as said before by myself, goldy, and a few otehrs, we're on the way up, but getting good takes time, we haven't got the quality players such as chelsea, we couldn't pull off this formation, not just yet anyway
my opinion anyway, atleast you can't say i didn't argue my point

A 451 would work better, definately. Johnson up top all on his own and McFadden/Cahill sitting behind him, maybe?
