With Wales overachieving, Italy excelling (despite not exactly having their greatest squad), and Chile winning 2 successive Copa Americas, all mostly using 3 centre backs with genuine wing backs to provide the width. Is it time we should re-visit this? Especially as Guidolin has huge experience of this formation, famously overachieving with Udinese in Serie A and Europe. It seems to me that as a smaller team in the prem, this might suit us well!

Taylor and Gunter are genuine wingbacks? ....er, ok.

As to formation, I;m sure Guidolin will do what he thinks best in terms of the players we have come August and that he is shaping the type of player we buy.

Neil Taylor is a goal machine.........okay maybe not, but Gunter certainly gets forward a lot! Just thinking out loud as it were. Would suit Ayew too, as the strikers/attackers in the system have freedom to roam, a la Bale (or Sanchez, or Italy's Eder etc)

But have we 'over achieved'? Norn Iron outplayed us, and Slovakia could have beaten us.

Give it a rest. We've got exactly what we deserved from this tournament so far, and it's much more than the team on paper might have expected pre tournament. The overwhelming feeling on here was we'd get between 0-3 points if I remember right.

I know what you mean. A bit like Greece didn't overachieve when they won it having been outplayed in most of their games.

We're in the quarter finals mun!

532/352 could work well for us and I'm sure it's something Guidolin has looked at.

It would mean no Montero or Barrow. As much as I will defend Taylor, it probably means benching him as well. We would probably need a Rangel from 2 years ago and a Kingsey from a year or two in the future out wide, plus another ball playing centre back.

Some talk about Swansea City AFC, while others talk about Wales.

I think Andy Murray will do it this year myself.

The formation has potential, especially with decent wing backs, but Wales were overwhelmed by a poor England side playing that formation and lost that match.

I'd hate to see us play without wingers.

It works for Wales because we have two things 1) No options and 2) Gareth Bale.

Slovakia could indeed have beaten us if they had outplayed us and scored more goals than us.
Also Russia could have beaten us if we hadn't torn them a new arissole.

And what is good Phaedrus, and what is not good. Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?
