malcontentjakewith high pressure from the outside mids (virtually forwards) and Montero dropping off to serve as a 2nd/striker/playmaker, the shape of the front 5 takes on more of a "+" shape. The stacked central midfield, with a box-to-box CM operating in front of the CDM, is a hallmark of the "Sigi's Arrow" shape. The overall formation is nominally a 4-4-2, but perhaps better described as somewhat of a 4-2-3-1, or some have defined it as 4-1-3-1-1.
