Radical Idea and I know we like 451 or 442 but I would like to goad opinion on this option with the players we have.

Howard.

Jags (RCB) Yobo (CB) Lescott (LCB)
Nev (RWB) Baines (LWB)
Carsley (DM)
Arteta Cahill
AJ YAk
I think in this formation we can the best out of all these players. I would still look to replace neville at righ-wing back but for now he would be the best option.

No thanks. Would be like the stupid experiments England made, a HUGE no from me. I',m a bit traditional with formations though. But wouldn't like to see us play 3-5-2. We don't play a continental style and would be raped in this formation. In my opinion

It wouldnt suit us, that formation is all about the fullbacks and all ours would do is hoof it up because our midfield are to scared to get on the ball and do something.

Sort your tactics out moyes and lets start to play some decent footy.

If we had a right back to match Baines it could work but we just don't have the staff to pull it off IMO. We are short the right sided player and we are also short the central midfield general you need to drop back when the wing backs go forward!

We've been struggling for clean sheets with a proper defence so with that we'd be conceding even more IMO.

theres no point changing tactics, the problems are with team mentality. players are of such a varied level in our squad, some are top class like arteta, others like hibbert, osman are championship players at best. They go out and are told to sit tight keep hold and try to nick the odd goal on the break(not the way to play imo) which is very boring to watch, and you need the right players to make it work anyway(which we don't have) i look at a player like yobo, when he came to the club he used to take his time and pass the ball across the ground, now he has joined the neville/stubbs/hibbert fan club and will just hoof it away. what i'm trying to say(i think) is that whats the point in changing the tactics when we can't even play with the one we use at the moment, we really are shite at the moment imo.

Yer I do really think moyes encourages the long ball game into us.

wo wo wo
wait a minute, when yobo was passing the ball nicely on the deck he was giving it to the other team, under pressure making mistakes like he did with rooney. back then people were shouting for joe to just get the ball out, now he does that.
no complaints from joe hoofing it from me, ive seen him fuck up too many times in the past

Moyes tried that @ chelsea a few seasons back.

They got 5 that day, cant see him beeing keen 4 a while.

Ima big fan of 3 @ the back but you have to have the correct cattle both in the 3 & in front of them.

that looks like a 5-3-2 to me!

3 defenders, 2 defenders in front of them, 1 defensive midfielder in front of him.

at least we'd be tight at the back i guess!

Would only work with a good Defensive Midfielder. If we get Appiah (the more we ask and hope, the more the board might take notice) it may be a solid defensive formation that is capable of attacking from almost any direction. Could be interesting. Agree that Pip needs a replacement. Totally unimpressed thus far by Jags. Seems like a tryer, but he just chases shadows, if you get me.

It does seem to be the case jags is lacking somewhere I think a realistic option would be a 451 now timmy is back and get back to winning ways
