Don’t see how a ‘flat back four’ would help us out. We’ve had more thumpings with four at the back (including a 9-1) than when we’ve had three centre halves with two wing-backs.
In my opinion, we shouldn’t be in a position where we’re relying on the ‘back three’ bailing us out, as at the end of last season we were pressurising teams further up the pitch and then putting them on the back foot when we had the ball, and it isn’t happening at present.
By taking an attacking option away and putting them into a flat back four we’d just be doing the exact opposite of what we need to be improving on.
An increase in tempo and more threat up front is what’s need (in my opinion), and hopefully Kone coming back will improve that.
