Loyalty and patience, two undervalued concepts.

I understand your point, but a 4231 is a different set-up to the one we practice. Firmino would adapt to it, no question about it. But in this system, the forward is much more the go-to man (like Torres was with Rafa's 4231) and I'm not sure that Salah and Mané would adapt that easily to being played further out wide, farther from the goal and with more defensive tasks. Our current success comes from the total unpredictability of our front three. They can basically pop up anywhere, that's a great strength. You wouldn't have that with this 4231.
Anyway, I don't say that I don't want Mbappe at Liverpool, but for 200m+? No way.
