Strong sides out?
What about Wilshere though?
It was clear as day a 4-3-3 although I don't know how to prove that or indeed if there is a difference. I suppose you could say that Wilshere was at the back but a 4-3-3 doesn't have to stay in lines like that!
There's not much difference really between a diamond and a 4-3-3, in defence it was often a definite 4-3-3 (at least in the first half), in possession it was probably more of a diamond, except Wilshere's movement was atrocious and he was never available when the central defenders were looking for him. When Sterling moved in the middle, it was definitely a diamond though.All in all it was an okay formation with enough variation and fluidity but still just about enough players knowing where they were supposed to be.
Yes I suppose the defining characteristic would be that the front man in the middle of a 4-3-3 is clearly a striker whereas in a diamond formation, it's a classic number 10. So was it the diamond that we played so effectively last season against arsenal? I thought it was a 4-3-3 at the time.
