I think a 3 at the back could suit us next season at times. Gomez/ Konate/ VVD then Matip/ Phillips/ Davies and the kids as cover. Robbo/ Kostas on the left and Trent/ Ox on the right. His best games for Arsenal came there would allow Neco to get a loan move too. 2 of Henderson/ Fabinho/ Thiago/ Milner/ Keita (i’d get rid) and one more in midfield. Salah, Mane, Jota and one more as the strikers then Jones, Elliott or Firmino as a 10. Jones and Elliott i think need to be in the final 3rd.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure Klopp would go with 3 at the back, it was one of the first things he said when taking over, he would go 4 and not the 3.

3 at the back is simply one of the worst ideas I have heard.

Is that you, Gareth? Is DavidK a pseudonym?

19 Jun 2021 21:58:47
We can’t even get 2 cbs fit never mind 3. I think there is very little chance of us playing a back 3 next season.

19 Jun 2021 23:34:59
Is that a 5-4-3 formation? We should definitely do that.

20 Jun 2021 00:14:20
The champions of Europe use 3 at the back it can’t be that bad. Atletico and Inter won the league using it without being favourites. Germany were fantastic with it vs Portugal. I’d like to see something different either the shape 4231 or 343 or a new starting striker. Surely we won’t go 433 Salah-Firmino-Mane for the 50th season in a row. Needs freshening up. Was clear last season.

We have played a fluid system the last few seasons where at times it does appear we have 3 at the back, fabs dropping deep and splitting the centre halves giving the wing backs the opportunity to move further forward.

I'd imagine we will continue to play in a flexible system next season, maybe the only change will be instead of fabinho bringing the ball out of defence it will be konate and can dijk. allowing us to play an extra attacking midfielder (Thiago in a 10 role I'm thinking) .

Mark, are you ever positive or are you negative Walter? Lol constantly negative. Not a personal slight but it can be a little tiresome mate.

20 Jun 2021 07:30:57
If fit Joe would would work really well in a back three. Providing no one leaves our front line of mane, jota, Salah, Bobby and young Harvey is good enough. Probably need an am. Beundia would have suited us, Villa got a good player there.

Alrite Marty, I like to contribute on the threads where I disagree, it promotes debate. I don’t see the point just agreeing on the other threads.

If we sign a top midfielder I think we will win the PL and make at least the CL semifinals. Is that sound Marty 🥳.

20 Jun 2021 09:13:19
That's better Mark! As I said, just some positive words now and again make the world seem brighter. I'm all for debate though mate. Have a good Sunday and happy fathers day to all x.

20 Jun 2021 09:21:59
All the best Marty and happy Father’s Day to one and all.

OP, we have issues having CB’s fit already so how would a back 3 work. Also, we don’t even have the personnel to play a back, IMO so to me, it’s a nonstarter.

20 Jun 2021 14:20:38
In a team that dominates the ball so much, playing 3 at the back weakens you in attack. It’s fine if you want to invite pressure and mount counter attacks, but Klopp likes us to be more proactive. 3 midfielders is our 3 at the back.

Win from the front and counter attack higher up the pitch. It’s done us well so far. Last season was an anomaly, not the norm so get the right Gini replacement, get VVD, Gomez back and that’ll see us much better off than any major overhaul of tactics and formation.

Spot on, Quo Vadis ( great movie, btw) . I think we don’t even have the correct personable either. Take our fullbacks. I think Robbo could play in a back three as he does for Scotland. Not sure Trent can do the same cos he does his damage from deep and our system allows him to slide m into midfield and orchestrate from there when we are on the front foot. That would be gone in a back 3. Also, not sure he has the athleticism to go up and down the flank, either IMO. A hard no for me, as well.
