Hey, I am happy to see, that the fomration has been updated; but I am a little disappointed to be honest, that the formation of s-cobar has been used. I mean, I really appreciate his work and engagement, but still I do not agree with that setup, regarding several points ( see my last posts, too).
- Schweinsteigers position: both van Bommel and Schweinsteiger do clearly play DM for me, alternating in there offensive actions.
- Badstuber, who mostly concentrates on the defense, pushes considerably fewer to the offensive than Lahm does on the right side, supporting Robben, which:
- almost plays a kind of winger, getting through - and chip balls, while Ribery mostly comes from more behind, having more offensive players in front of him.
- Müller playing SS, fullfilling the whole in the offensive midfield and sprinting into the gaps of the opposing defensive; either on the wings or in the center. He also does a good job in the backward movement.
I post the formation I see on the pitch again, maybe a tininess modified compared to the one posted (and described) before, but the principle is still the same.
That's the first 11:
RCB: van Buyten
DM: van Bommel (C)
Long Free Kicks: Schweinsteiger
Short Free Kicks: Robben / Ribery
Left Corner Kick: Ribery
Right Corner Kick: Robben
Penalties: Robben / Ribery
