    @Nameless
    I think 3-5-2 is correctly presented in SM though. DM, M (R,L) for the wing position is the right position for it. Perisic who was an attacking winger been playing in 3-5-2. Initially he doesn't want to play in that position so he moved to Bayern. Now, he accepts his role. Very bad initially, but now he is more adept playing in that role. And SM already gave his M(R,L) position even before he is adept at playing it.
    Can't imagine AM(R,L) playing as wing-back. No team IRL play as attacking winger in 3-5-2. And honestly it is generally a defensive formation

    It is an attacking formation. 
    Let me explain in another way. 
    You play 532. Who can play on the fullback positions? D(RL). In 352 who can play (green) on the wings? Again D(RL) + M(RL). 
    So comparing it to 532, 352 is attacking. But in SM only FBs can play there. 
    As for solution the way SM works is the halfway line. Behind halfway line attacking players will show orange/red and the other side attacking players will be green. 
    So SM can simply push the positions slightly over the line to show it's an attacking formation. 
    Same with 343 (and please don't say 343 is neutral formation). It's an attacking formation where FBs are green and attacking wingers are orange. Only Candreva can play there. 
    So as you can see I have saved Rahul from "Et tu Gyan the Cat" and is asking SM to push the players on the other half.

    Definitely ended at 90 minutes and definitely not a draw:
    "Arsenal outclassed FK Austria Wien and thrashed them 6 - 1 in their Shield Round 1 fixture."

    I would like to see adjustments made to it as well.
    Once upon a time, the 3-5-2 was the de facto winning formation for successful SM managers.
    There was a rumor SM adjusted the success rate, (down-graded it somehow), and you rarely see it in the game. Now 4-3-3- and 4-2-3-1 seem to be the most reliable ...

    Interestingly enough, a couple of weeks ago I discussed it on Discord, for exactly the same reason. 3-5-2 has become a quite popular formation in football (especially in Italy) and the winger position is kind of a problem, because not so many players can play there in SM (and most of them are full backs).
    However, I don't think it is an attacking formation, it's quite a neutral one, if you ask me, depending on the way the coach wants to play it. So, to be honest, I agree with the current situation, attacking midfielders shouldn't definitely be allowed to play there (can you imagine a 3-5-2 with players like C.Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, Salah, Mbappe, etc. on the wings?)
    The solution for me would be having more players who are AM(RL) at the moment to become also M(RL) - but only if they can actually play there -, in order to make them eligible to be wingers in a 3-5-2.
    But hey, that would mean other position changes and Sir Rahul may lose all restraint, and I am afraid his detractors might organise a Julius Caesar-style execution.
