There's a great story in the Telegraph about Van Gaal, I don't think anyone else has linked to it yet. Has good diagrams about formations as well as anecdotes:

What's clear tho is that once great managers with strong personalities get older and to the end of their careers they weaken their strong views/ ideas and therefore limits their effecfiveness... Like Fergie in his last years...

Allardyce thinks 352 is a fad, not a proper formation, and that Van Gaal is going about football wrong

And so it begins

"Play 442, don't be foreign"

Allerdyce criticising Van Gaal. I wonder what Andy Carroll thinks of Ibrahimovich?

Quick sell him Fellaini to play no 10 behind Carroll. Beggars belief.

Scholes doesn't like 352 either

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... holes.html

'When you look at United the last 20 years its been 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 and that where we had all our success. 3-5-2 may be some LVG is a little obsessed with because it worked in the World Cup for him – there’s no doubt about that.

'But this crowd need a little bit of excitement and for me 3-5-2 is not a boring way of playing but it is a very slow way of playing, all about possession rather than having that thrust and ability to score goals.'
