Formation to get the best out of everyone

The 4-3-3 formation, we have started using recently is suiting the Arsenal style better than the earlier 4-4-2 formation, which has been used for ages now...But still, is this new formation getting the best out of all players we are having right now??

Making Arshavin/Bendtner play wide is not the best of ideas!
When Nasri is fit again, where exactly is he going to play?
What about a fully-fit Rosicky?
Is Clichy looking all that comfortable linking up with Arshavin?

According to me, to get the best out of everyone, we can have a diamond-like formation somewhat like this:

----------------------------RVP--------------------------

-------------------Arshavin-----------------------------

Rosicky-------------------Fabregas--------------Nasri

----------------------Song-------------------------------

Clichy---------Vermaelen--------Gallas-------Sagna

------------------------Almunia--------------------------

What say, guys?
This will be the best possible line-up that we can have...(barring injuries...though, this is highly hypothetical at Arsenal).

Arshavin when given the free role can be most devastating...With Nasri slightly in the holding role to support Song...and Rosicky linking up well with Clichy...letting Clichy play the way he was playing two seasons back, when Rosicky was playing regularly...
Also, Fabregas right in the center looks even more creative!
To me, this formation looks much more balanced than the 4-3-3 being used currently.

Subs
Walcott (replacing Nasri)
Eduardo (replacing RVP/Arshavin)
Bendtner (replacing RVP/Arshavin)
Diaby/Denilson (replacing Rosicky/Song/Nasri)
Djourou (replacing Gallas/Vermaelan)
Eboue (replacing Sagna/Clichy)
Fabianski
