I really don't want another season of punts and percentages.

However our part-time DoF seems to call the shots.

As are 2 midfielders good enough to control the middle of the park, that's the level of football we are at I guess.

We struggled to get WBs when we were in the league too.

After we lost the two Edwards we were never able replace them. It was always with FBs, which effectively made the formation 5-3-2.

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.
I think 442 is a thing if the past, other than a variation to change things up a little during a game. The opposition if necessary just overload the midfield and enjoy pockets of space to control the game.

Currently 433 seems to be, the most popular at all levels including internationally with considerably less teams opting for 352.

I wouldn't be unhappy with 5-3-2 as long as the full backs are mobile enough. That's been part of the problem this season. I personally don't like 4-4-2.

Our problem is that both Edwards were wingers who learnt to defend, rather than FBs that learnt to attack.

If we could get wingers who could do this (meaning a lesser-spotted left-footed left-winger) we could be in business.

Our problem is we have real problems with land quality players anywhere other than defence, which IMO is the easiest place to get them.

Playing 4-4-2 will still require that left winger.

It will, and we haven't had one for donkey's years. However he wouldn't have as many jobs to do in 4-4-2.
