slow day on the board so
just scanned this article https://www.onceamet...back-tournament
deploying Kaku in a static wing role (where, especially in the 4-4-2 formation, his role becomes devolved into a source of layoffs to overlapping fullbacks) and centering the more limited playmaking and delivery skills of Daniel Royer. Cristian Casseres, signed two years ago after shining in South American youth tournaments as a deep-seated ball-spraying holding midfielder, continues to be deployed in a confused box-to-box role that does not flatter his more deficient dribbling and off-ball skills. I
Noticed the points about formation and tactics and the lack of effectiveness of Kaku Royer (+everyone else) in the last game/games.
With the current squad (we all want additions/improvements/4 Young DPs/CBs not assisting on other teams goals week in week out) what would be the best formation/tactic?
42222 or back to 4231?
I like the idea of 4222 but it did not help left acres of space v Cbus and ineffective v Cinti with what little we had to go on.
Would a return to 4231 and some different tactics help ?
Royer - Kaku - Valot
Pendant Long CB TBD Duncan
You could even go
Kaku-----Valot - Myul as Myul is strong defensively that allows Duncan to go foward (assuming the CB isn't assisting the other team)
Also, with Pendant staying back a bit (for now hopefully as he adjusts) this would allow Kaku more freedom to roam which seems to suit him.
