Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I just heard a reporter on the radio that Sven will probably be playing the diamond formation :eek: (from the training session and match) and that some of the players are disgruntled about the fact that he's changing the formation.
This is not very good news. I really hope that we can still somehow win.

ok - retard question.

can't they just change the formation if they figure out it's not working and make it suit the team they're playing as best they can? i mean could becks organise this during the match or would the have to wait for the go ahead from sven at 1/2 time?

yeah they can, becks would probably shout to sven on the touchline first though. He could change it if he wanted but i doubt many coaches give they're captains that much. sometimes subs are brought on so they can deliever detailed messages to the team and captain about formations etc.

It would take too long for Becks to shout out the orders as he'd have to say "y'know" before and after each word.
and by changing formation at half time could unsettle the team as well, when they really should have adapted their play by then.

from what i understand, becks doesn't do much as captain at all, seems that gary '**** tache' neville has a bigger influence

Captaincy-wise Sven chose Becks to be captain to gain public support (being that he is a foregin manager), true the captain he has some strong leadership and determination qualities, however players such as Neville and Scholes even, have greater qualities in the captaincy area and should have been picked as captain especially Neville as he is so senior.

yeah as far as becks is concerned the band on his arm is probably just another fashion accessory.

well i don't think any team really ever makes a major change in formation - it would just be choas. they might get instructions from the coach shouted from the touch line for a midfield player to play up front or something.

the general rule is dont change your formation unless you have to ie when someone gets sent off...the chances of screwing up after changing formation is higher than a chance of improvement

Sometimes thats true, but sometimes its good to vary it a bit. For starters you becomes less predictable and makes it 10times harder for the opposition to pick players runs up, plus it gives players a chance to play in positions that they may favour. It certainly worked wonders for my team.
