He's played both flanks. ANYWAY! FOUR FOUR FUCKING TWO! would fix it :)

Pickford

Coleman ----- Jags ----- CB ----- Digne


Lookman ----- Gana ----- Sig ----- Richarlison


Walcott ----- Tosun

Started off as a joke, but may actually look ok, with Gana (Drinkwater) deeper and Sig closer to the attack. Assuming we had a decent CB come in and full backs and widemen worked intelligently out of posession :) Would never happen as Silva will stick to his 4-3-3 :D

442 is probably the most balanced formation when you get the system right

I'm surprised not many teams use it anymore

No way Lookman keeps a fit Walcott out. I could see the argument for playing Walcott through the middle and Lookman and Richarlison on the wings, but Walcott is streets ahead.

Walcott will keep himself out donít worry about it
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Yeah, missed 79 games over the last 5 seasons due to injuries, including a 280 day ACL injury.

Have to wonder when and how hard his physical cliff will be.

Iím being harsh on him though, practically a revelation when he joined. Iím just feeling very frustrated with the Lookman thing and taking it out on poor Theo.

Iím 100% with you, particularly the last sentence.

The chance of having Richarlison, Lookman, Walcott as forward options is tantalising, and fucking annoying that it wonít happen.

Who exactly were we expecting Lookman to keep out of the starting 11 ? Walcott or Richarlison ?
He knows that he is a starter at Leipzig and a steady bench warmer with us, canít blame the kid.

He was on the bench for them a bunch too. He only started 6 games since he went there in January.

I'm not even so much bothered about Lookman, we'll find other players like him with potential. I'm just really hoping to see Theo and Richarlison in the same team together and have a feeling it might be some time before that happens. Like when I wanted to see Arteta and Fellaini in center midfield or Limpar and Kanchelskis on at the same time. Rarely if ever happened.

Primarily because you can counter teams easily with it using wingbacks or 4-5-1/4-1-4-1 and it has less defensive cover. It also stretches the midfield 4 if opposition fullbacks push on. IMO, Walcott is best used wide right, making late runs into the box from the wing.

I think it will happen a lot quicker than we think. Richarlison and Walcott are both hard working players willing to cover defensively. Even if it means sitting Schneiderlin 10 yards in front of the back 4 (he can't do much else anyway), we need to get both these guys in the wide positions.

Fair enough but didn't Leicester play 442 when they won the league? Not saying we should do it, just saying can be very balanced and effective if done right with the right players

I think formations will turn back to 4-4-2 for many teams soon. The world cup showed how sitting back with 2 organised banks of 4 effectively stopped all the Spanish and Brazilian tip tap stuff.
Teams rarely have to contain 2 strikers nowadays as well.

I thought things went away from 442 due to the lack of quality strikers. Only seems to be a handful of them these days.

The problem with Lookman, so I have been told, is that he has never liked it in Liverpool, and doesn't want to stay here as he feels he cannot settle. Apparently his attitude all summer has been highly questionable too, with Silva taking offence at it, especially after both Silva and Brands have stated they see him as an important part of the first-team.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

That all sounds very plausible.
