my point with berba being better with such a formation is that if we played this way both rooney and cole would be up there with him.
Berba would have an extra possibility down the middle. Everbody says he slows the play down. I think that is because he always have to pick out rooney or the wingers. If he collects the ball by dropping deep with a diamond in the middle Cole will be much a closer option to berba and therefore not slow the play down as much....
but generally we play football by our wingers. So i dont think gaffer will adapt diamond formation. From our midfied Only fletch will be CDM. We need den an allrounder with AM+defensive quality. Coz Cole never getting into defence job at all.
If our targets have chosen other options than to hell with them, who cares. I would much prefer a player wanting to play for us than forced to play for us.
Silva doesnt get me too excited as I dont want to upset the Nani and Valencia project on our wings, a more centrally minded player would be a lot better in my opinion examples being Modric or possibly Joe Cole, read today about closing in on Suarez from Ajax seems a good signing but of course for every Nistelrooy theres a Kuyt or Huntelaar.
