    Whats his role? Is he attacking or defending? Seems to be caught between both.

    It's not poor team formation. Jones is just not right being in front of the midfield two. It's an odd choice.

    Our tactics this season in Europe has been utterly shocking.

    Interesting time for us to try it out in the league.

    Nothing is ever wrong with any formation. It's how you use a formation that determines its success.

    Bring on Young for Jones at HT.

    And we're needing more movement in the attack!!!

    id prefer he does his defensive duties firstly, we will wear blackburn down in the 2nd half.

    we dont need jones making marauding runs all over the camp yet

    Jones whinging at Rafael for not getting back?
    These games where teams park the bus I find Chicharito less reliable as when the ball goes wide it's really an in behind option or a free header only

    Good stuff. That's what we need, more bodies in there when Tony gets it in.

    Also with no other competitions to play in I am not sure why we are not playing a proper team and formation?

    Rafael's been in great positions, but no end product just yet...

    We need to stretch Blackburn. The moment we do there are opportunities.

    I would take Jav off for Young and put Waz up front. SAF never makes those kind of subs at half time though.

    Of course but we know what players we have and where their strengths are. This is something new and I don't understand why SAF picked this. We're one transfer away from making this formation super hard to defend against. Pick any one of the optimal CAF transfer targets and the team would be much better but we don't have those players now and I don't understand why Jones is there.
    Maybe someone else can shed a different light on this.

    No out and out left sided player.
    Need to get a midfielder off for a winger and bring Rooney inside after half time.

    He has seen the problem against Blackburn at Old Trafford this season.

    4-3-3 with Rooney as winger is our problem.

    We're needing 100% Young in the 2nd half.

    Our 2 best chances have come because of Hernandez' great runs.
