After going through the transitional period and nursing our fingerlings, we kick start the season, and our 'toothless tigers' should be ready to devour and challenge whatever comes their way.
We have a tactically complete manager who can sharpen our tigers' teeth to be readied for 'destruction'. He has done it everywhere he has been including his first stint at the Bridge.
With him and his 4-3-3 formation, we rocked the PL arena in 2004 by setting a still unbroken record of 95 points and just 15 goals conceded. That was our most successful era. He used the same formation at Inter Milan but changed it to 4-2-3-1 at Real Madrid.
In his current spell, he has used the same (4-2-3-1) formation in most of our matches which was yielding inconsistent results. This may be as a result of a reliable striker and transition. Now we are in the market to polish some areas in the squad and after, what formation will you recommend to the special one?
Looking at the number of creative players we have in addition to the signing of Costa, Fabregas. (Maybe Kroos), and a threatening LB, I will want him to go attacking and this is what I believe will give us the consistent results.
4-3-3 - In this formation, Matic must be my pivot to cover the back four when the need arises. With Fabregas on the left and Oscar on the right to form a triangle, we then place Hazard on the left flank and Willian / Shurrle on the right flank with Costa up front to also form a triangle, with the full backs joining the attack. This will be the best form of attack and defend. I will prefer we use this against teams that park the bus with eleven players behind the ball.
4-2-2-2 - I will prefer we use this against tough teams like Man City, Liverpool and their friends who will attack and attack. With the back four settled, I will opt for Matic and Oscar/Ramirez at the centre, then go for Willian/Shurrle and Fabregas on either flanks and the Hazard and Costa above them. Not even magic can beat us with Courtois/Cech in-between the sticks with Azpillicueta (RB), Cahill(RCB), Terry(LCB) and probably Fillipe Luis. We may only loose with this formation when we have an anti-Chelsea referee at the centre.
What do you think Blues?
