Arshavin has been shite for those two seasons (it's just taken people a while to catch on), and Nasri is naturally a CAM. So far the last two seasons, definitely, we've lacked width big time!
I think in Gervinho and Theo (and the subs and up coming players like Ryo), we have players that give us natural width. Form asside, I think a front three of Gervinho RvP and Theo could work in this formation.
Width was never an issue in the 4-4-2 though, even with Rosicky and Hleb who weren't natural wingers, because the width came from the fullbacks. Rosicky would cut in only for Gibbs (someone who could easily be a winger) to overlap.Jay22 wrote:Est83 wrote:Flamini

I miss that midfield.
Should have been the 07/08 champs!
Nor pires n ljungberg they spent most of their time with us cutting inside and making shit happen. Spose they ha the ability to as well.
