Of course it works. It's just dependant on having the players for the system and the manager being able to get the idea across.
When you have Sami Hyypia & Benitez, you start setting club records and picking up numerous golden gloves with zonal marking.
When you don't, awful television pundits trot out tired platitudes of how the system is just awful and doesn't work.
