  1. time to dust off this thread 4-3-3 wingers vs 4-2-3-1 (how to give 4-2-3-1 a hard time)
  2. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? 5-4-1 vs. 4-3-3 wingers I copied my style from 9wolves2009, which you can find here, so no need to thank me!
  3. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? Yep you're damn right. In both cases, the main weaknesses are the gaps ahead of the fullbacks and, to a lesser degree, the space ahead of the central midfielders. Though i think that a 4-2-3-1 formation, if faced with an aggressive opponent such as a 4-3-3 which is able to keep the opponents in their own half, is more likely to collapse. One can also say that in a 4-3-3 the wing backs have more room to run into because there are two wingers up front and not two wide midfielders. However you can also say that a switch to the 4-3-3 means one less defensive player in comparison to the 4-2-3-1, leaving your backline exposed if the opposing team is quick on the break and transition quickly before the two central midfielders can transition back to defense. That being said, probably a 4-2-3-1 that which employ a counter-attacking strategy and play a deep defensive line could work even against 4-3-3 wingers.
  4. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? Well done, sir. Glad it worked fine for you too.
  5. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread Sure, Marcelo is a huge miss for Real! Can't wait for the 2nd leg mate! As I said before, if Atletico manage to score an early goal next week, Real have to score at least 2 and knowing your defensive strength, that will surely be a huge task for them.
  6. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread My thoughts exactly. Awful refereeing, the Mandzukic booking was an absolute joke! Marcelo missing the next game along with Suarez for Atletico is a positive thing for you. Mario was simply awful today.
  7. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread All in all, a positive result for Atletico. They should try to get an early goal in the 1st half next Wednesday, then it'll be difficult for Real to score 2 against them. Time for Torres to shine again?

  10. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Ings and Mitrovic. Berahino may be a little more talented than Ings but he has a Balotelli attitude about him. I can see him fizzling out ala Balotelli/Zaha.

  17. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? With yesterday's 1-1 draw, I am now unbeaten in 4 games against 4-2-3-1 in all my GWs, playing with my 4-3-3 wingers "exploit the flanks". Please make sure you play with an attacking mentality and remember that 4-2-3-1 leaves gaps in wide areas, so it has to being attacked down the flanks!!!!
  18. Re: Riferimento: Re: Riferimento: Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 pleas nice i'm no guru or expert, however i'm of the opinion that it is very important to try to play on the flanks using 4-3-3 wingers if you face 4-2-3-1. it might explain part of why you won the first game. moreover, i have had better results with attacking mentality rather than a defensive/normal approach I can't help but say that because it's just what I've experienced. I'm not really sure how to explain your second result btw, but i guess playing with a very attacking was a little bit of a gamble, especially considering the way your team played (counter-attack, pressing own half, fast tempo)

  21. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? 4-2-3-1 (all kinds of arrows all over the place) vs 5-3-2 sweeper Man marking and sweeper made us tough to break down defensively and as they were throwing 5/6 players forward most of the time, they were always going to be susceptible to our lethal counter-attack.
  22. Re: Do you have any idea how to counter 3-5-2 please? Sorry to have kept you waiting so long but it looks like the wait is finally over. The relatively good news is that i've finally discovered a counter-tactic that works wonders against the 4-2-3-1 formation i.e. 4-3-3 wingers. When it comes to counter your opponent, it’s all about identifying where the space is likely to be. Against a 4-2-3-1, where is the space? Basically, they need to commit their wingers to attack so the space between them and the fullbacks is probably the only real space that the 4-2-3-1 offers to its opponents. Thus, you want to attack down this area. Ok now some reports: I have won all of my last games against 4-2-3-1 with 4-3-3 wingers. Your playing style depends on opponent's settings, but i'd suggest to play with an attacking mentality and attack DBF. Hope this help.
