Counter formations

Recommended Posts

Re: Counter formations

Ok :o

What is 'sticky' thread anyhow? :confused:

I think its a thread that because of its importance to the game has been anchored or stuck to the top of the threads-so its no longer dependent on views etc for thread position.

examples include Sir Metz tactical guide or the newcomers guide under tactical help

You can contact a mod and find out whats the criteria for having it done.

Re: Counter formations

i thought 4-5-1 defensive would be better than a 4-5-1 against a 4-2-3-1.

backwards arrow on DM, tight marking attack down the flanks.

they are a really good team but i dominated possesion and won 1-0 :)

thanks for your help, you said 4-5-1 which made me think 4-5-1 defensive to keep hold of their AM.

ive already found this thread useful!

Re: Counter formations

My highest team is 95:

Casillas

Ramos Pique Vidic Lahm

Ribery Pepe Fabregas

Sneijder

Higuain Villa

It would have been higher if I didn't sell Robben... :o

And, my subs are beasts: Lucio, T.Silva, Pepe, Rossi, Kompany, Anyukov, Kalou, Wilshere.

Bearing in mind this is an ultra competetive GW... :)

If I were you I would trade Torres for a high defender like Vidic/Puyol/T.Silva before his drops in like a few days time.

Re: Counter formations

my back ups are more than beats, i used to have fabregas in my reserve team, now he is promoted because kaka got a drop

this is my squad - can't believe c.ronaldo did not get 99 too, la liga top scorer by some distance , and his goal scoring record for madrid sums it up

Manager of Puyol Will not let him go the manager of Silva WHO also are manager of Puyol Will not let him go have tried to get Them since february

While Vidic make stupid counter offer hé wants Messi for Vidic ;(

Problem is, there aren't many of them out there... And I wouldn't get Mertesacker who looks likely to drop soon too...

Do you want me to give you the best possible/strongest lineup for your team? This is a formations thread but I'll do it anyway.

Standard 4-4-2 (or you can play 4-4-2 diamond):

Cech

Zabaleta Ferdinand Song Bale

Valencia Essien Gerrard Nasri

Dzeko Pato

Re: Counter formations

I've got a game coming up against a regular 4-4-2, he's quite strong (93/4 average first 11). I don't want to play 3-5-2 because I have quite good defenders like: Vidic, Ramos, Pique, Lucio, Lahm, Pepe, T.Silva, Kompany, Vertonghen etc. So I'm thinking of playing 5-3-2 or a 4-3-3 wingers.

This is my squad and if you were me, what formation would you use? (I don't need you to give me a line up, for by looking at my full squad, you can get an idea which positions I'm strong in and which I'm weak - like on the wings)

Any decent help is appreciated :)

Re: Counter formations

hyina:

im thinking 4-2-3-1 ? i think that would be good vs a 4-4-2.

direct passing.

lahm, vidic, pique, ramos

....... fabregas pepe

ribery sneijder higuain

....... villa

defo makes sense with 4 at the back for you. u have few midfielders, loads of defenders. try sorting that and trading 2 surplus cb's , those 2 will be class for 5 years....

thats my idea anyway.

or 5-3-2 ive seen that do very well.

lahm ramos rb/lb

vidic lucio pique cb's.

fabregas sneijder ribery centre 3.

villa higuain up top :)

i think that gets the best out of your players too.

i didnt think id have time to post this hence the visitor message but yeah ignore that now :)

Re: Counter formations

Played against a 4-4-2 diamond and used my advice and used 3-2-2-2-1, my first time ever...

I won comfortably 2-0, 59% possession, 14 shots, 5 on target (the other team had 0 shots on target :rolleyes:)

I'm pleased with my work :)
