Suso on the wing without full back means we are playing with 10 men. No way Suso runs back for that ball.


Yeah, which is why we're going to play 3-4-3.

I think we should still move forward with the back 3. It fits our strongest area, which is the defence and wingbacks.

The midfield needs work but I think a Biglia, Monto tandem can work also if we want an alternative to Kessie who needs to be rotated more and can't be given a sure starting spot in the team

I don't think wingbacks are our strongest suit. On the contrary, I'd say they're our weakest point. Rodriguez is not a wingback. He's a defender. The fact Montella even played him as CB tells that much. Borini is a forward invented as wingback. Abate can pull that role but let's all be honest, he's past his glory days. Conti is injured. And then there's young Calabria.

Ideally, we should be playing 4-3-3 with Biglia, Kessie and Bona in midfield, but we lack that one crucial element in attack, i.e. left attacking winger.

Borini has shown his best stuff at wingback for us and he's actually been one of the most involved players in the goals we've scored. (I was actually reading this fun fact somewhere a couple of days ago)

Rodriguez, is a FB but he's just as good at WB. And just because Montella played him in the CB position, doesn't mean it was a good idea, just like all the other times he's moved players around this season that weren't good moves

Yeah, Borini has been alright as RWB, but the point is that he's not a WB. Just like Rodriguez is simply not good enough when played in that position. He's a leftback with strong defensive traits and a great left foot.
