Which I think we should start playing, we do it in a very unorthodox way by switching from a back 4 in defense to a back 3 in attack.

We aren't getting rid of Mendy, might as well make use of him as LWB more (which is how Pep plays him anyway) but Gosens would start.

Cancelo is also RWB, and we have Yan Couto and Pedro Porro on loan who are also perfect for it. Walker has transitioned to a wide CB anyways.

Let's our attackers play more inside, rather than hug the touch line which they all prefer, Zinchenko can also play defensive midfield as well.

I think with our squad and potential prospects it's the way to go since we already attack in a 343, might as well just defend as a 541, don't see the benefit of inverted fullbacks compared to this easier system.
Something for Pep to ponder. Hope he doesn't wait till a finals to try it out....


Sorry, I'm still sulking :(

We reverting to 3 at the back again? This guy is the very definition of wingback. Maybe we could go back for Angelino if it doesn't work out.....

You could probably play Gosens in a four provided you played Walker at right-back and it became a back three in possession. I don't think you could get away with Cancelo and Gosens together in a four though
