Re: Counter formations
Updated Version!!!:
In my experience at managing and also general comprehension of tactics, I think that:
To counter 4-4-2, I would use 3-4-2-1 with diagonal arrows on players 10 & 11, 3-5-2, or 4-4-1-1
To counter 4-3-3, use any formation with 5 in the midfield
To counter 4-5-1, use 5-3-2, as suggested by arampage
To counter 3-4-3, use 4-2-3-1
To counter 3-5-2, use 4-5-1 defensive or 4-1-3-2
To counter 3-3-4, use 4-4-2 or 3-5-2
To counter 5-4-1, use 3-5-2
To counter 5-3-2, use 3-2-2-2-1 or 4-3-3 wingers
To counter 5-2-3, use 4-5-1 defensive
To counter 4-4-2 diamond, use 3-5-2 or 3-2-2-2-1
To counter 4-3-3 wingers, use 3-4-2-1 or 3-5-2
To counter 4-5-1 defensive, use 3-4-2-1
To counter 4-2-3-1, use 4-5-1 defensive or default 4-4-2
To counter 4-3-2-1, use 4-2-3-1
To counter 4-4-1-1, use 4-3-3 wingers
To counter 4-3-1-2, use 3-4-3 or 5-3-2
To counter 3-4-1-2, use 4-5-1
To counter 3-4-2-1, use 4-2-3-1 or 4-5-1
To counter 5-3-2 defensive, use 3-4-3
To counter 4-2-4, use 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 or 4-5-1
To counter 4-2-2-2, use 3-5-2
To counter 4-1-3-2, use 4-5-1 or 4-3-3 wingers
To counter 3-2-2-2-1, use 3-5-2
Hope you enjoy! And start winning games from now on too!

Note, if you have used this advice and lost a game, please post it in this thread so I can have a careful look and maybe change it.
NOTE NOTE: It seems that after SM changed, the counters have mostly stopped working as well as before, as randomisation has been added chance results are more likely to happen (i.e. 352 might not thrash a 442 and 433 wingers might lose to 352 etc.) if you encounter such results post the report here and me and fellow forumers will help you out
P.S. I have un-subscribed from this thread myself due to increasing work load and other reasons.
