Clive writes some absolute tosh, he really does. RVP ego?? You can tell hes never even been to a game. Fabio and Rafael could become world class wing backs, rafael is almost there already. Only a fool underestimates the impact of wide lay.

Yes but in Alan's lineup, he shows four defenders aside from Rafael and Fabio.
Now if he listed 3 central defenders, the twins and one extra midfielder (ie a deep-lying one), then I'd perhaps agree to include the twins as 'wing-backs.' But he didn't and suggested they'd be 2 of the 3 midfielders which would be very weak indeed. I'd suggest:
Smalling Vidic Evans
RVP Messi Ronaldo
...if including the almost same players as Alan.
With this, Smalling could cover the full back/right midfield area when Rafael pushes in or up field. And Fabio drops back to left full back when Rooney or Ronaldo are providing cover in left midfield.

thank you Neil, It's not set in stone and there are some games where I think 4 defenders would be too many when teams are happy to sit back in front of us, lets not get needlessly nasty about this it is just an hypothetical situation as i doubt anyone else could ever get messi
Lol. You know nothing about football, clearly, given that formation. By the way, Rafael and Fabio both played midfield against arsenal, and ripped them apart. you have nothing to the contrary other than 'your opinion'.
