the 3-5-2 adds width and helps create counters but the squad hasn't adjusted to it yet, also a fit and on song Silva would help immensely with our possession game, Nasri can play the role well occasionally but doesn't have the cutting edge and vision Silva provides.
I'm not really sure why he's so obsessed with it? All the changing of formations and partners could be one of the reasons why Kompany has looked poor so far.
Even if it did work, it doesn't seem like something that will make a huge difference anyway. It seems like a lot of work, with big risks, for very little reward (if any).
