    Euler, I saved your post to read as my ‘last’ tactical piece, and I am so glad I did. Reading it just reminds me again how clearly you manage to explain things to someone like me, who knows nothing about tactics, while at the same time not dumbing things down.

    Thank you!

    Just registered to say that..

    You totally nailed it.

    SAF chose to play 4-4-1-1 against barca and what had happened on the pitch was exactly the same as what you have written here.

    I wonder why SAF didn’t change the formation at HT? Maybe because in the early 10 mins Utd was pressing exceptionally well because 4-4-1-1 allows each utd player to have natural match-up for each player to press and he’s banking on it to work throughout the second half?

      It might have worked though, if chicharito had enough experience to not be caught offside by barca’s defense.
