In regards to all the potential signings to be done, I couldn't stop thinking about how to best maximize the squad's strengths utilizing the players we will have and use rotation to the maximum. 4-3-3 is still fine and will probably be used next season (although Pep loves for try new formation, and will no doubt experiment when he gets his new toys), but I think with proper fullbacks he will go 3 at the back, I think this formation also fixes any problem with fullback depth If we assume Pep buys only one LB and RB. I think the formation works best when you play with a true fullback on one-side and a winger on the other, you can see this done throughout all the top teams using it: Arsenal: Chamberlain LB (winger) and Bellerin RB (fullback) Chelsea: Alonso LB (fullback) and Moses RB (winger) Juventus: Sandro LB (fullback) and Cuadrado RB (winger) This is the squad I can imagine next season assuming all the rumours we have heard about, I have denoted a forward slash for the players they would rotate with: Aguero/Jesus Kevin/(D Silva, B Silva or Roberts could also rotate here) Mendy/Sane | D Silva/Gundogan | Toure/(Fabinho or Carvalho) | B. Silva/Roberts | Sterling/Walker LCB CB RCB GK Okay I didn't fill out the defenders or goalkeeper because they weren't what I focused on, whoever we add to our current set should be good hopefully, be we need ATLEAST 1 more CB for this to work. The idea of this set up is to use players who are best outwide and stick them there, for example I question whether Sane works best cutting on the left when he has an overlapping LB, Sane's strengths is to stretch the pitch and use pace, he doens't need a fullback to assist him here. The added benefit is that fullbacks have cover in the form of wingers, one game Sane and Walker could be used (where Walker is the more defensive one) and the next Mendy and Sterling can be used. This also gives my favourite loanee Patrick Roberts more game time, as both he and B Silva are flexible in this formation to play as the RCM or CAM (and give Kevin rest). One BIG reason I like this formation is the four man midfield diamond with: Toure, Gundogan, B. Silva, D. Silva for example, I picked the 4 best players at retaining the ball and Pep often did this at Barcelona with a quartet of Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta and Messi I know alot of people on this forum dislike the 3 at the back, but what do you think about this with the new signings?
