    Midfield

    Poll is requested by Frisko.

    First option means that we use a flat classic 4-4-2 with 2 pure wingers on the flanks and 2 slightly defensive midfielders in the middle. Second choice means that we use a diamond midfield, with no real wingers at all.

    I voted the second because of the surplus of central midfielders.

    Well I think we can use many different formations because of the difference and quality of our players. But to me the most balanced modul is 4-4-2 a la Mancini, so I will go for the first option.

    BTW, it was good that I remembered how to create a poll so I could tell frisko. Sometimes I get small memory losses.

    And Handoyo. I think you voted for the first option by mistake.

    Anyways - great poll!!!

    First of all thanks a lot to Handoyo and Gismo for helping me out.

    I'd like to see Inter play with the diamond midfiled. Like this:

    --------------------VERON-------------------
    ----------EMRE---------DAVIDS------------
    ----------------STANKOVIC-----------------

    There are several problems here though.

    1) Crosses: who's gonna cross? Davids can do that, I'm not sure about Emre and Stankovic.

    2) Veron: can he defend? The player in his position is the key to make this kind of formation work. He needs to be creative, with the ability of delivering great long passes, and I think he's got that. But can he get the ball back and help out the defence? Maybe with the help of Davids he could? Otherwise C Zanetti could play in that position, and maybe Veron play instead of Emre.

    3) Emre and Davids are VERY SHORT...both of them...can they play together in the centre of midfield? Or is Maurinho right when he says that 2 players that short can't play together (he said that Chelsea wasn't after Davids because they already have Makalele and Davids is short too).

    Apart from these issues, I think this midfield would be smashing. The players could switch positions, and we'd have great feet!

    No problem, frisko. My pleasure.

    Insert Cambi and take out Veron. Switch Emre to the right and Davids to the left and it is great. Veron will have to warm the bench on this one, IMO.

    I voted for the diamond one, as we have many quality central midfielders.

    Against smaller clubs I like the 4-3-1-2 formation. Or even 4-3-3.

    Like I posted in the "What tactic should Mancini use?". :razz:

    I prefer the flat 4 men midfield, considering the midfield players we have. Currently, of all our midfield players, these are the ones whom I think can both defend as well as attack very well: Emre, Davids, Stankovic, Veron and Cambiasso. (Please correct me if I'm wrong)

    With this few midfielders who can defend as well as they can attack, I suggest using a flat 4 men midfield where all of our midfielders can attack and defend together.

    I'd go for the diamond thing , the 4-3-3 system that Mancio prefers and the flat 4-4-2 lastly but not in too many matches .

    Let us play with different formations according to the opponents esepcially that we have the players that can produce such exciting display as well as la Classe (mancio) .

    let it be:

    -------------------------------Toldo---------------------

    ---Ilcapitano(cordoba) Canna Burdisso(matrix) Coco(Favalli)

    Davids(zanetti)
    ----------------Veron(VDM) Stankovic(emre)

    Recoba

    ----------------Adriano(Cruz) BObo(Martins)


    And:

    the same 4 in defense

    -------Veron Davids(Zanetti-Cambiasso) Emre(stankovic)

    -------VDM Adriano(Bobo) Martins(REcoba)

    A diamond is a nice choice

    ------------------Recoba-------

    ----------Stankovic-------Veron

    --------------------Davids

    Or a flat 4

    -------Recoba------Davids--------C.Zanetti------VDM

    Or a flat 3

    ----------------Stankovic-----------Davids----------Veron

    I think it all matters what opposition we are playing. Though I guess I would sorta like us to use the diamond since it seems to be a really good and strong formation to use in Italy.

    = Stan/Ver ============= Emre/Ces/Dav=

    Sorta confusing Prav since you posted it backwards when its only a flat 4. Left on left and right on right would be easier to read since its only the midfield

    Does it matter? Well personally I always post RW to the left and vice versa. A habit of mine.

    I usually get it when you guys post it backwards though since Pani put Davids on the left side and Recoba on the right I wasn't sure who he was putting out of place.

    True, I didnīt notice that. Of topic I think The Pitbull is much better when he plays LCM. Just look at Euro 2004! He was played slightly out of position... and that was enough. Emre for example is more flexible.

    For me it's the same when I post Veron-Davids instead of Davids-Veron.

    Typically the right is Stankovic-Veron-Davids-Recoba
