Thanks everyone for their responses. I think we're going to try a 3-2-1 at first, but it might morph into a 2-1-2-1 over time.
We're not exactly blessed with a ton of speed, but we've got a few guys that are good in possession. I think if we can control the middle of the park, we'll be decent.
A lone forward as a target man with wingbacks providing necessary width sounds like the best plan for us. I also like the idea of the center back stepping up as DM-like stopper.
Again, thanks everyone. You've all given me a lot of strategy to ponder the next few days.
