    Is a 3-man central midfield silly?

    Just wondering....coz I feel it has two benefits:

    1. If u are not actively managing the team that day, one reserve central midfielder can easily replace any of the three if injured.

    2. The trio has a higher chance of controlling the key central midfield.


    Is it a silly tactic? Eg too many midfielders squeeze themselves in the centre duplicating actions?

    Naah its never silly to have 3 central midfield...
    depends on the arrangement you have...
    you can have it flat.. or a trio, with two on defense and one on attack, or the other way around,.,.

    possession wise, the three midfielders must always be positioned to intercept passes...
    what i mean is you cant have a fixed position mc...
    you may need to re position them possibly 70% of times for every new match...

    if done right, then it can do more damage to the opponent...
    the right support for the 3 strikers or wingers would mean to a high scoreline...
    and the fact that a CM has a duo role where they attack and defend gives us a clear idea that they play a part in defense too...
    possibly a better play build up...
