Have you actually tried it? Surely that's the best way to see? Can tell you now though that it's going to be a disaster. You have masses of space either side of the two midfielders.

Have you read the pair and combinations article? It'll be useful to go through it.

I have to agree with WJ, your midfield (or lack of it) is likely to get overrun. Your only MC is roaming and will not provide much defensively, and a BWM is not as defensive as you might think. You basically have a defence and an attack. No midfield.

Read the pairs and combinations guide I linked. You'll find stuff like this in there: "A pairing traditionally has a “sitter” and a “runner” ... A Ball Winning Midfielder, a defensive role in nature, does not provide disciplined positioning, so makes a poor “sitter”."

The thing is: Get an idea of how you want to play and how the tactic is supposed to work. Don't just put random things together and hope it's okay. Read the guide. It'll help already.
