3 at the back isn't really the issue.

It's the players and their roles in it.

At least one of the wide CBs has to be comfortable as a full back or a midfielder as there is always space to move forward into. You can't just have 3 players in a line within the width of the penalty box.

You certainly can't do that if your RWB is a forward stood 30 yards further up than you'd naturally expect.

Nor then have a CM move over filling the space where the RCB should be moving into.

It was far too complicated for the personnel.
Even RK thought it was the three at fault.. hence the four after half time ... but I see what your getting at ....he needs to chose a formation and stick to it  till the players are comfy.
