Former Palace player's that would suit FdB's system?

This could be interesting. Not sure we have ever played anything like De Boer's system before. Didn't Big Mal play 6 at the back v Leeds in the cup once?

Anyway I was wondering how many players, past or presently still playing could adapt or have played well with 3 at the back?

I'll start with the obvious one, Victor Moses.

Interestingly after relegation in 95 Palace adopted a continental approach that I think was inspired by the Ajax Champions league winning team (Including our Frank)

We were set to play with a sweeper or back 3 and wingbacks.

Andy Roberts was the sweeper - And Marc Edworthy and Dean Gordon were the wing backs. In terms of style those 3 suited the formation brilliantly. And probably (not being harsh) improved versions of those 3 would be exactly what we need at the moment.

Later on Venables played a back 3 and Hayden Mullins was spare man/sweeper.

Pretty sure he also played under Bruce in a back 3 with system that worked brilliant for a short period.

Andy Roberts was class at sweeper. Read the game superbly, and had time to use his great range of passing. Class act, never really recaptured his form playing a Centre mid in a two, but still a fine player all the same.

Guess Sansom would of been more than capable at played LWB or do the older generation feel he wouldn't suit the system?

Paul Hinshelwood as well at RWB?

Fonte Sakho Mullins
Moses Watson Hughes Cole
Routledge AJ Ambrose

We're yet too see what kind of 343 Frank wants but the assumption is a more possession oritentated one that presses high so I believe it requires a more mobile center forward with the energy to both press and offer good movement up top.

I don't think that front three are necessarily meant to be wingers I'm sure it's more inside forwards as they call it who should be getting 7-8 goals a season.

He could have really made Jeff Hughes kick on to the next level. Sadly, we'll never know.

I do feel Stuart Green would flourish in this set up as well.

Deano despite being a Croydon boy, has now settled up North. He set up Pro Motiv8 2 years ago. The company provides football coaching for teams, groups and individuals during the school week, football and futsal fun days during the school holidays, and futsal tournaments, leagues and birthday parties. I also believe he iacts as an agent to some of the youngsters.
