    You mean the 4-2-2-2? That's been popular this season with Monaco and Leipzig, although not as fashionable as 3-4-3, but the same premise, fullbacks dominating their respective flanks.

    12 players eh? No wonder the cheating fuckers won so much.

    Yes, 4-2-2-2. Atletico Madrid have been playing that for some time too, but with Griezmann it's been a little more like 4-2-3-1 in the last couple of years.

    He is. I don't want to over hype him coz he does have some flaws, but as far as fullbacks go, he is the most exciting one I've seen since Dani Alves at Sevilla.

    He is a cross between Cuadrado ( Similar athletism, and rapidness) Dani Alves ( the movement but not as good of a crosser) and Dembele (the two footed dribbling and cutting style on top speed). The fukker purrs like no other fullback.

    Okay he has flaws. Gets caught up field, takes plays off when tired and doesn't run full pelt back every once in a while.... All minor issues.

    I'm a big fan :-)

    Nelson Semedo is the ideal RB. If we get him and Mendy I'd be very happy. Especially since Semedo's price is something like 40m euros, with Mendy at 50m euros (I think that's reasonable), 90m euros for two young world class fullbacks will be great.

    So we choose better next time.

    If we discounted every league we've made poor signings from we'd have all our scouts in the Macedonian second division.
