I also think, however, that modern football obsesses way too much about formations. I wish managers would just go out and get the best players they can, and then choose the formation based on what they have and not the other way around.
All of this. Sports science is a wonderful thing in many sports, but it also has a lot to answer for as many fall victim to paralysis by analysis. At this level, keep it simple.

Almost anything bar 4-3-3, which only works if you have 2 attacking FBs and 3 exceptional midfielders.

However if we dont play to the 433 and it just becomes 451 or we dont recruit players for the formation then its immaterial.

I would prefer 442 as its simpler at this level and requires 2 forwards that work as a team.
Its also easier to recruit a 4 man midfield with 2 CMs and 2 wide players that can work left and right midfield.
However it's difficult to recruit 2 midfielders who are good enough to win the midfield battle on their own.

Personally 3-5-2.

3 central defenders and 2 wing backs. A holding midfielder who can drop back in to cover a central defender if they get pulled wide and 2 up top working closer together.

As long as we recruit to the formation then fine.

I hope we will not be driven by whiteboards and classroom theory. At this level we have to see what players we end up with and play to their strengths. If we were able to financially compete with financially more organised teams, then maybe we could attract players to fit the whiteboard drawings... if we cant then we need to rely on a managers experience to get the best out of what we have so that we don't keep endlessly wasting what cash we do have.

That's the same for any formation.

Problem is effective wing backs are henís teeth at this level

It's no easier to recruit effective wing-backs thank effective CMs, harder I'd say.

If you can get two breakers who can manage basic passing then 4-4-2 could work, but you would need good wingers and strikers to pick-up the attacking slack. That would give us more points of attack than this season.
