It's an outdated formation definitely but it's still effective if you have centre mids that can play competently as a pair. I mean look at Bayern Munich they played 4-4-1-1 (not exactly 4-4-2 I know) and they got to the Champions League final but they had balance in the midfield whereas England, and even United to an extent, don't have 2 midfielders that can play well alone with the right mix between creativity and defensiveness.
