Breaking News ! One of the more exciting tactical trends in the Championship in recent years has been Chris Wilder’s overlapping centre-backs at Sheffield United. Wilder took the idea with him to the Premier League and it helped the Blades secure a top-half finish in the top flight last term. United have switched between a 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 formation since Wilder introduced it in League One, and it is something that Carlos Corberan is keen to replicate with Huddersfield Town. “I came in on the Monday morning (after losing to Millwall) and I said; ‘We need to get two upfront. We need to get Jake Wright into the team because he’s a strong character and leader’,” Wilder told the One Of Our Own podcast. “That was the thought process. That was the origin of the three at the back.

So we had to expose an area and Jack (O’Connell) was comfortable stepping in and Ethan (Ebanks-Landell) was comfortable stepping in.” The principle is simple. The back-three is seen as an attacking outlet. The ball is worked wide down one side with the centre-back overlapping on the outside and the wide player tucking in to help create an overload. At the same time, the wide player on the opposite side moves infield to provide another option in the penalty area. “I saw things that I wanted to develop and I couldn’t do it,” Marcelo Bielsa said after their meeting in the Championship. “I would say the Sheffield United head coach is someone with new ideas and I have seen very few people with these ideas.” Sign up for the Huddersfield Town newsletter Why you should sign up?

While the thought of promotion feels like a heady dream for Huddersfield fans, the idea of quick, incisive football is an achievable goal that should be enticing. At the heart of that transition is the club’s latest signing, Naby Sarr. Sarr started his career with Lyon in his homeland before joining Sporting Lisbon in Portugal. A move to Charlton Athletic put him on the map in England, and he helped the Addicks earn promotion from League One to the Championship in 2018/19. One of the main aspects of Sarr’s game that sticks out is his suitability to carrying the ball. During the 2018/2019 season the defender managed 0.79 dribbles per game with a completion rate of 74.2 per cent (source: Wyscout). Admittedly, that dropped considerably to 0.45 per 90 minutes and a success rate of 38.5 per cent last season, but that’s with the context of Charlton being a struggling side in the second tier.

Using the same criteria, he was fourth for key passes per 90 minutes (0.15). The defender arrives at the club with a good pedigree and some of the key components required to play the manager’s preferred style. If the two can align then the club may have the foundations of a strong defence, and from there, they can start to dream big once again.
