    Bayern Munich does use the 3-1-3-3 time to time...so it's not very unrealistic. If you check Van Gaal's Ajax for example, the wide players were wingers, but they were also forwards, and Iniesta isn't that.

    "if SM wants to make more formations available with wing positions I'll happily drop this point. but right now, in a 3133 for example, I can't play any of those three players in the wide spots of a front three. and all three of them can play in the wide spots of a front three and have done recently."
     
    Proof?
     
    "ake 3133B, for instance, with the front three split with wingers and a #9. otherwise, you have to give these players F(RL) just like Mata."
     
    Why? Iniesta is not a forward.
     
    "absolutely incorrect. he occupied LM in a 442 and had full defensive responsibilities associated with that position."
     
    No, he was a winger.
     
    "if you watch him play, which you clearly don't, you'll see him occupy the LM zones during buildup and defensive phases of the game. when he plays in a 433, he plays M(LC) when he plays in a front three, he also tracks into M(L) zones when in defensive transition (even beginning attacks from there). his positional data should basically be the same as Iniesta's except he can also play on the right too, albeit he does this rarely so if it was eliminated I'd have no argument."
      He's not as LM....He's a attacking midfielder/central midfielder that sometimes drift left.   "he occupies those zones and has defensive responsibilities associated with a LM. he routinely plays close to the touchline and works up and down it in offensive and defensive phases of the game. that's why he has M(L) in his positional profile and that's why it should stay there."   Nope...he hasn't played LM. See above.   "
    352 is an attacking formation. there are certain players attacking players who have the profile and skill-set to play wide of midfield in that formation. not every attacker can do this, but the ones I have suggested are fully capable. the only reach is James Rodriguez, as he no longer plays there for Colombia and given it's unlikely Falcao will re-find his form, he probably won't play there again."   3-5-2 may be an attacking formation with attacking wingbacks...I have yet to see a 3-5-2 formation that utilizes wingers.

    3-5-2 is an offensive formation: yes, it could be. So I want to report Juventus FC example:
     
    the two wide players his manager sends on the pitch for this formation are all fullbacks not wingers: Lichtsteiner D,DM,M(R ); Evra D,DM(L); Alex Sandro D,DM,M(L); Asamoah D(L),DM,M(LC); Cuadrado D,DM,M(R ),OM(RLC); Padoin D(RL),DM,M(RLC). So....

    if you play your players in their respectively position, they will not have any orange dots. You can't honestly expect an AM (RL) to play as M (RL) without being penalized. Do you see any real life clubs using attacking wingers as wing back? I said kuddos for SM for these new changes, and amateur managers who don't understand formation and players position must be harshly penalized until they learn how formation and tactics work in the real world. 
    There are many serious problems worth offering feed backs, and yet many of you amateurs keep whining about changes that were necessary, and deserved. 
    P.s. I have no problems playing 3-5-2 with my team. See for yourself, not a single orange dots.

    Re: Keepers to get injured
    If Keepers get injured, SM needs to implement a way where GK subs get put in automatically, or if subs are all used, use a player-designated outfield replacement.

    I think it's high time that SM adds some new formations. How about the 3-3-1-3? We've seen it a lot more often in the past few years and Van Gaal is using a variation of it right now in the World Cup. Any chance of this happening?

    Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........
    I've been around SoccerManager since 2006/2007. I believe it has always been a small operation since then and is ran by a small group of people. Maybe it has grown as I have not paid attention to its business development, but I don't believe they have "hundreds" of researchers/scouts as some here have speculated. It's pretty much self-explanatory. Nothing wrong with being small.
