4312 is an option like every other but we need to have players that can fall back into a typical 4411 or similar block. A typical 4312 with rigid players (like we had under Carlo) doesn’t allow you to defend the flanks. A 4222 with Leao/Rebic able to go wide left, and CDK wide right, can work. A 4312 with the same sort of players can also work. But if you defend deep with the same shape, you’re extremely narrow and are vulnerable to overloads on the flanks.And you were complaing about the lack of width in my 4312
In the end all these numbers mean very little on their own without context. Sorry if I was critical of 4312 without context before.
