True, but there's a difference inbetween the 4231 and the 433. Lots of teams play the 4231 these days, but it looks like a 433 due to the wing play. The teams that are actually capable of playing 433 aren't abundant. You need the right players, especially in the midfield and the wings.

Although I do agree that 433 doesn't directly mean possesion football, it is something that makes sense since your three midfielders are relatively close to each other, and therefore can help the ball move more fluidly

Interesting vid on the 4-3-3 btw.
