I know nothing of Portuguese football but I've read a few bits around this because of his links to Silva. Hats off to him for taking this approach. I'm guessing he doesn't have an abundance of resources and a couple of injuries to more prominent squad members could cause the project to derail but it's nice to see the small guy sticking it to the big boys
how Sousa is engineering such a revolution with a team whose stadium canít hold 6000 people?
Silva likes to set his team up to attack. Perhaps the 48-year-old Famalicao boss picked up that trait from his mentor. The Famalicenses are a brave bunch who like to poke opponents in the eye from the first blast of the whistle.
Sousa sets up his team in an attacking 4-3-3 style thatís manufactured as many goals  as Porto and Benfica who sit one point adrift the minnows on the league table. The three man attack involving Fabio Martins, Ruben Lameira and Anderson Silva/Toni Martinez have combined for 10 goals already.
Defensively, Famalicao has a working system, with young defenders Patrick Willian and Nehuen Perez forming a terrifying partnership which has produced two shutouts so far.
4-3-3 folks, fume away
