Formation For Crewe

Recommended Posts

I would start Notts with this formation on Saturday against

Crewe. I'd ideally have 4 defenders and I would make sure to instruct them to get tighter, man up to the opposition and make sure they tried to force them into the centre of the park. (rather than into the flanks) We seem to allow them to pass through easily when we do. I'd have Liddle and Boucaud in midfield, with Judge playing an advanced role in which he can offer support to them when required. I'd get our left & right back(s) to go advanced when possible to provide crosses or support our attack but I wouldn't want them to always be up there. Jeff Hughes behind our Striker (playing in a forward/wing role) same with Zoko. Arquin would be my first choice but he would have to play his part.

My preference with this formation would be to make sure we control the game, it would provide us width but at times when needed we could be narrow. Instead of attacking solely down the flanks I would make use of the center of the park.

Obviously I left out Jamal Campbell-Ryce. I feel he would provide good cover if I needed to inject pace or just trickery. He could replace either Hughes or Zoko but could even drop into Alan Judges position so this would be fairly flexible.

Although it only features one true striker the options of being supported by the two advanced wing/forwards would allow this to change as and when suited.

What formation would you play?

I cannot comment on the formation you should play, yours does seem very versatile which would allow your creative players to show what they have I suppose with those regards. :)

Your formation seems good... i'm not sure what formation i would use myself apart from avoiding a formation with one striker alone up front, which on the odd occasion gets chosen by some teams.

I'm hopeful we don't play three at the back, I would be happy with that.

4-4-2 is also a good call :)

Well we do need the strikers up front to score and obviously enough defenders too. So either of those would be good.
