Would you like to see them all on the pitch together?
No. 4-4-2 with midfielders playing in midfield please, and Bent and Gyan up front. It's harsh on Welbeck as he was excellent against Chelsea, but if Bent and Gyan are fit then Bent and Gyan should play for me.
No i dont think i could stand the excitment
Agreed - no more shilly-shallying with 4-5-1, or dreaming with 4-3-3.
Given the stresses of the Premier League it's quite possible that all 3 may not often be fully fit at the same time anyway. Gyan was suffering from cramp at the end of the last game and may soon need a short break anyway to help acclimatise.
Elmohamady Turner Bramble Richardson
Campbell Zenden Malbranque Welbeck
Good god we would get bummed playing that
Not even Welbeck playing in behind Bent and Gyan? I would like to see it personally.
Not at home to FC United in the FA Cup.
those 3 fit enough to play in a midfield of 3 with the full back also getting forward (new left back needed or swap Richardson with another midfield (not sure who) and he can play at LB
Not really 4-3-3. More like 4-3-1-2 ?
could hold it up quite well for them and be a link playing into the channels for them
Agreed. Against some teams that is.
Nah, over complicates things, we're good at 4-4-2 and we've got players very used to playing it, why mess about with that? Welbeck's looked ineffective in midfield when played wide left, his best games have come playing up front, and who do you sacrifice to play 3 up front?
aye agree but the 1 needs to also play ahead of the 2 and play 45 degree balls as well as the channels
Onuoha Turner Bramble Richardson
Henderson Cattermole Meyler
Could work quite well.
play your most mobile 3 in midfield so they can cover the width of the pitch
Wouldn't want 3 up front. Just thinking of Welbeck playing in behind the front two. But agree with sticking to 4-4-2 as it is working for us.
yeah was going to post that team tbf but my only doubt was Meyler not sure about him. not sure why but he is mobile and based a couple of games he showed potential
yeah i would go with that midfield if playing 3 up front

I've not got a problem with the formation as far as it goes (in fact it's a personal favourite of mine on Footy Manager, Riquelme sitting behind the strikers, class ) I'm just not sure we've got the personnel to play it, although as someone says maybe if Meyler comes back fit and looks like he did at the end of last season. Not sure Welbeck's the man for the role though tbh.
