Baningime and Sigurdsson playing in the middle of a midfield 4 like this:

In possession = Baningime covers as Sigurdsson gets forward as a sort of false number 10
Dispossessed = Both fall back side-by side to protect the back 4

Seems like a lot of work for Sigurdsson and Rooney would then end up getting in his way. Not sure you can play both in the same side.

Not at all. We need to defend as a team at the moment so if you're on the pitch you have a role to play when the opposition has the ball.

And for all his experience - Rooney HAS to stay in position.

If they can both do that (and I see no reason why they can't) then it should be a decent formation.

Rooney has not stayed in his position since he had that zip of pace about him, maybe 3 seasons ago. I think he drifts so much it contributes to us not having any shape or structure
