What's everyone's thoughts on formation when we do finally get the Fernandes deal over line.
Maybe a change of formation or he slots straight into the position that has been occupied by Mata, Lingard and Perreira this season.

I can see us sticking with the 4231 with Fernandes sitting behind the striker.

Ole knows only one formation irrespective of the players, so i think we'll stick to that.

i don't think the 4-2-3-1 is a horrendous idea. Have Fred and McTominay (when fit) sitting deep with Fernandes unlocking the defence doesn't sound bad to me, giving him as much freedom as possible will only benefit.

Apart from when we play a different formation like 3 at the back obviously, don't let the facts get in the way of the slagging off though.

Fernandes deal is not sealed, but I hate us playing with two holding midfielders. I would love to see us go for Maddison in addition to Fernandes
Fernandes plays mostly on the right if midfield. He's not a true no10. He'll be a fantastic signing as he supplies assists and goals. But also will strengthen the right side further. Lastly, he's got a great work ethic, which will help us when we don't have the ball.
So I think 433 will be the better formation if we want to win trophies and not just contain teams.

ole was apparently always for the 4 2 2 2 when he was getting his badges.

Fernandes offers plenty of tactical flexibility. He can play at No.8 or No.10, he can play at No.6 but that seems silly considering his skillset.

So if we say 8 or 10 then we could like up 442 diamond, 433, 4222, 3213, 4141, 352 or most likely 4231.

Personally I like either 4141 or a variant of 343. But whether we have the players for that remains to be seen.

I expect until the summer we will mostly see 4231 with McTominay, Fred or Pogba in midfield with Fernandes in the No.10 position, Rashford left, Martial up top and James and Greenwood sharing the role on the right.

When Pogba is back fit and playing it might look more like a 4141 with Pogba pushing up on the inside left and Fernandes on the inside right with McTominay anchoring the midfield. That would be very good against those teams that sit deep.

Shappy, I’d really like to see a middle 3 of McTominay, Pogba and Fernandes with Martial, Rashford and Greenwood/ James. If we keep our back 5 fit then that is a very good team (on paper) .
3 more decent signings along the lines of last summer and we’ll be getting somewhere.

I think it will be 4123
4 at the back with wingers
1 holding
2 Playmakers
Front 3 with centre forward working as a false 9.
