The new season is nearly here. In just 4 days time, the new Premier League season will begin, and we’ll all have actual matches to talk about instead of meaningless pre-season friendlies and transfer rumours.

The subject of formations is one which I’ve wanted to explore in depth myself on this blog for a long time, but I’m waiting until I get round to reading Jonathan Wilson‘s book titled “Inverting The Pyramid“. In the meantime, Wilson has written an excellent piece for The Guardian on how ahead of this season, Michael Owen’s transfer to Man Utd brings the issue of formations back into focus. So please read and enjoy as we count down the final days:
