Kai_79100 got a reaction from mato77 in Counter formations
Re: Counter formations
Well I personally think that If you are under form(like me for example) then you won't be winning matches no matter what tactics You will put. I'm really really strugling with my Man United. I used 3-5-2, 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1 and in 6 matches I provided one win and one draw. The rest ended losing even to teams like Levante, Dynamo Moksva. Other managers on my server(it's new btw so Levante IS Levante) use only one formation and somehow it works on others. They don't change formation to particular rival, just play one and winning. Mostly it is 3-5-2 or 4-4-2. But when I try to play those formations I am really strugling. So I think that formation does not play a big role. It's the current form of your team. You perform good or bad and for me that's all. All this counter formations and changing formation from match to match. IMO this won't be good for any team. I also think that team has to addapt to formation and stick with it for some matches to start gain some result with it. Off course that is not a rule but from now on I will choose one formation and stick with it for about 10 matches and start watching results from about 6th match.
Sorry for my bad english

Re: Team & player instructions for 3-5-2 !!!
I'm probably not the best tactician, but I don't think I've seen anyone play tight marking with 3-5-2. Not sure about that, sorry.
As for Men behind ball, it works best with counter attacking.
It's either you choose to play attacking style
Or defensive + counter attack + men behind ball.
People claim that attacking + counter attack doesnt work. I mean, logically it won't be the best match, but SM-wise, I don't know. I've done it a few times, not a big difference. Still, better to get someone else's opinion on that.
So whether you play attacking or counter attacking depends on your players and your opponents team. :/
