But then he became obsessesed with it and even trust Andre Gomes more to deliver in big games which obviously is the biggest mystery till today.

    He would be forced to make a massive change next season, whether to use Arthur or Rakitic, play Dembele etc. because it's do or die for him. If he continues the same way, and do badly in the CL then he's gone for sure.

    Could even argue his formation was more attacking at Bilbao.. He always had the two CDM's but Aduriz up front with Williams RF and Susaeta LF with Raul Garcia behind the striker, generally a 4-2-3-1 with different players.

    Crazy how we ended up with more or less a flat 4-4-2 at times, fine for La Liga like you said but awful for big games. Doesn't play to our strengths.

    We will probably play 4231 this year. at least I want that ) With these players, the most balanced and most logical arrangement is the 4231. Busquets and Arthur (hopefully) in DCM. Dembele and Messi and Coutinho in front of them. But this is just the easiest part. The details and descriptions of the duties of these players is decisive. And that's where the doubts begin to happen about EV.

    That 4-2-3-1 on paper is actually a 4-4-2 on the field when you think about how the players line up.
    Dembele and Coutinho as the wide players with Busquets and Arthur/Rakitic in the middle. Whatever formation we use, it seems Messi will always play in that zone just off the main striker.

    Hope this does not happen. I prefer to see Dembele and Coutinho in LAM and RAM. Not as Wing. I know what you're saying. The two are closer to Messi, the better. Alba and Semedo/Roberto are the best options to cover the area as long as we have the ball.
