Counter formations


Recommended Posts

against 4-2-2-2 u can use base 4-3-3B or 3-5-2. The game with the update now is too easy: counter formation doesn't exist anymore and the only important thing is the overall value of the team. If u have 94-95 u win the league 99% and is nearly impossible to lose: sad but now the game engine works this way. Seasons like Leicester in this game Bye BYE!

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 player

In this thread I will tell you which formations counter which. This is a simple, down to earth thread, easy for everyone to use. Enjoy

Re: Counter formations Well the 4-2-3-1 formation may be very strong, but one thing a team needs is good full backs to make it strong. Worse if the person uses counter attacks, because it leaves it v

Hi all. I am going to face an unbeatable Liverpool side and would appreciate if any suggestions are given. Thanks =)

 

I used have a good ratio when head to head with Liverpool until this season they seems to be in a consecutive run. Just like Roger Federer (Me) Versus Novak Djokovic (Liverpool). I cannot seems to find a counter formation against his formation.

 

FYI. My default formation is 3-5-2, always in attacking.

 

When head to head against Liverpool, I sometimes used 4-5-1 which led to majority of them drew.

 

From the stats below, I think I have better chance with 4 defenders rather than 3 defenders and his team performance is less dominant when head to head.

 

The figures below will highlight the previous league result and cup result (most recent).

I would strongly disagree and are finding that certain formations still counter others. In many cases the inferior side is coming out on top as long as the right tactic/formation is used

Would you like to come over to my English Championship Setup and try to counter Liverpool formation.

 

The season will end around April but plenty of good teams available to manage and also plenty of good players around.

 

Note Liverpool has not lost/drew a game.

Internazionale with 424?

 

Yes, that formation! (the team can be anyone) This is bulls#it, In the real world nobody plays like that without midfield. But here this tactics seems to work, al least if you have good fordwards.

Dude, after I read your topic I tried that 424, with Neymar on LW, Ronaldo on RW and Higuain and Muller on 9 and 10. I have Modric and Vidal as midfielders. I have 3W 0D 0L and goal difference +9 in 3 games in very competitive gw.
