Alan Pardew with his brand new Newcastle United squad is looking to break the 4-4-2 formation and said that Newcastle should change its style. The traditional formation of 4-4-2 stays for years and have been resulting an up and down seasons for us.
Within the last ten years, we have so many names come and go as our manager trying to re-creating the old formula of an entertainers side which is, in my honest opinion, no longer as exciting as before.
Now with Pardew in charge, he was determined to change United team's ethos into his new favoured 4-2-3-1 formation which enabled his midfield creators playing as the bridge between our defensive and attacking players. And to fullfil Pardew's plan, the United chief scout Graham Carr has provided the recruitment of Yohan Cabaye, Gabriel Obertan, Sylvain Marveaux and Mehdi Abeid this summer.
This season we have a bit more attractive playing role from our midfielders. With the rose of French revolution at St. James' Park, Alan Pardew has more than enough la munition to support his upcoming formation that could change the style of Newcastle United's team for years to come.
With Ben Arfa slowly now regained his full fitness, we will see more of his playing role as United's second striker along with two of his french compatriot Marveaux and Obertan to support his pacey movement. They will be supported by our two powerfull central defensive midfielders Tiote and Cabaye. Especially for Cabaye, he will have more duty as Toon playmaker.
I'm excited to watch Pardew's new formation to working well for us this season, and hopefully with this new style, United team will be become stronger in defense as well as have more pace and fierce in attack. Until then and thanks for coming to this site. Howay the Lads!
