You may have seen the new feature on the club web-site about Elvis' World XI, probably the most interesting thing to come from this will be the formation. Elvis, a product of our youth system, chose 4-2-3-1 as his formation.

It will be interesting to see how many players choose formations other than 4-4-2. Popular wisdom has it that L1 players aren't comfortable with fancy formations (e.g. anything other than 4-4-2). Might it now be the case that whilst some fans may still struggle with non 4-4-2 formations, the current crop of youngsters are actually more comfortable playing such formations and it is 4-4-2 that is foreign to them?
