Is there any chance of a change in formation? In particular, it feels like we're losing the midfield in every match lately. Pressing teams will pin our 6's into passing back and forth with the back line, which cuts off service to Nico and the forwards. Too often our only hope to progress the ball seems to be throwing up Hail Mary's to Jordan or Leo Chu. Is this just down to missing Cristian's ability to drop down into more of a #8 role? Is it fatigue beginning to limit our forwards' abilities to cover more ground and provide outlets?

I suppose it's possible they'd move to a 3-4-2-1 but that's only as effective as whoever that fourth midfielder is. If it's Morris, that's kinda pointless. If it's someone like Roldan, the same thing can effectively be achieved without changing formations.
