That's pretty much the shape I drew a page or 2 back, I just had Watkins drifting right a bit more than he did.

It would only really help if there was one for the period whilst Bailey was on, which I think was the spell in question.

Mings was as left back as left back gets for a good 15 minutes. Bailey was playing left wing. It may not have been the intention, but it was the formation on the pitch.

Exactly.

So if Mings went to left back and Konsa went to right back, who were the two centre-halves in this imaginary back four?

Konsa didn't go to right back. Cash was playing, you might have noticed his goal?

Konsa was playing the same position as Mings, who according to some who imagine we went to a back four, was playing left-back after Bailey came on.

Of course, anyone with functioning eyes knows they were wide centre-halves in a back three.

So essentially it was five across the back but Bailey and Cash had free licence to push, Mings, Axel and Konsa sat behind.

Bailey wasn't playing as a wing-back, I think that's the point a few people are trying to make. Targett and Cash were genuine wingbacks in a game where we dominated the territory. Bailey came on and played as an out and out winger and we just didn't bother defending on our left. Just before our first we nearly got caught out by it but we held on.

It wouldn’t make much difference because during a game it is fluid and different permutations will take place

Players not formations make the difference in how offensive or defensive you are

You can tell them where to be, you know. It's not like every player is magnetically drawn to some area of the pitch. If they're a pro, and you 'stand there', they will.

Agreed, but that said, what about a 2-2-3-1-2?
