[Discussion] Wide Centre Backs

Recommended Posts

With the reemergence of a back 3 as one of the most popular tactical systems for defences, a new role for the right and left centre backs of Wide Centre Back would be a good addition. Currently with a back 3 and wingbacks/wide midfielders, the analysis of the formation has the right/left fullback areas red and an area of weakness when actually the right/left centre backs should be covering those areas to some degree (at the expense of weakening the centre). You can put centre backs in the fullback positions as ‘Defensive Fullback’ as a rough equivalent but i) they often aren’t familiar with that position and ii) it’s a more extreme widening of the back three.

A specific role that allowed for centre backs to cover the flanks while not being too wide would be very useful (and realistic). It’s also possible to see them in a back four, Puyol & Pique used to play very wide for Barca to give better options to Valdes when the wingbacks had pushed on.

How would it differ from the way three DCs work now or when you use two DCs & a halfback in the DM position?

From what I see what you want already happens.
