Good enough for the champions of Europe, but scoffed at by supporters of mid table div six County.
An article last season before the final.
“Real Madrid have used a simple 4-4-2 to fill the void left by injury to Gareth Bale... and it looks like sending them into the Champions League final
Gareth Bale is currently recovering from a long-term calf muscle injury
In his absence, Real Madrid have reverted to a rudimentary 4-4-2 formation
It has worked perfectly and Real are on the verge of the Champions League final
It would be enough to put a smile on the face of Ricky Tomlinson's Mike Bassett England manager – Real Madrid are on their way to making Champions League history and they are doing it by playing 4-4-2.
The much-maligned fallback option for the tactically impaired, the so-called archaic system that Tomlinson parodied and that countless England managers have been lampooned for leaning on is exactly what Real Madrid supporters have been calling for, for months.”
