I've been thinking about this 3 at the back, which I hate.This tactical genius thought that playing 3 at the back against the 20th placed team was the solution
Tried it at Liverpool and didn't work so switched to a back 4 at half time.
Then preceeds to make the exact same mistake 3 days later and does the exact same thing at half time.
Surely that spells the beginning of the end when these sort of things are happening?
The only reason I can think of is that Jose wants to play Ndombele as a CM, as he can influence the game more from there.
However, Jose doesn't think that he's good enough defensively, and fitness wise, to play there.
Hence having a back 3, or 5 without the ball.
Only my thinking and I could be well off.
Maybe a 4-3-3 would be better for Ndombele but doubt that Jose would play that.
