Counter formations

Re: Counter formations

4-3-3 against a 3-5-2 strong madrid team. drew 3-3' date=' but when i brought my star players on i conceded none in the second half and scored 2......

inconclusive, and i was at home.[/quote']

Did you use normal 4-3-3 or 4-3-3 wingers?

Have to say I use Sir Metz's guide of late for formation countering and so far I've either won or drew my games so am sticking by it!

4-3-3 wingers. its fine though, he has a very good team and a draw is not a bad result against a top team.

if i had my stars out from the beginning looks like i would have won :)

Re: Counter formations

I have tried your counter formations for 2 weeks now and there is no chance to win a single game - at least not for my opponents ;)

Great work, great effort, thanks a lot!

4-3-3 wingers works very well against 3-5-2.

I would try 4-3-1-2 or a 4-5-1 also, and if you are willing to take a risk I say try 3-2-2-2-1, your 2 DMs and 2 AMs surrounds their 3 mids, so you will have more posession I think and more likely to win.

Hope this helps :)

Any other formations to use on 4-3-3 wingers? Tried 4-3-1-2, and 4-5-1, 3-5-2, managed a draw and 2 losts. Here is how the manager of the other team plays. With the player number 8 having an arrow pointing towards the forward wingers.

----2---------4---------5--------3---------

-------------------6-----------------------

---------------7---------8-----------------

----10-----------------------------11------

-------------------9------------------------

No, what I mean is use 4-5-1, 4-3-3 wingers or 3-2-2-2-1 against 3-5-2. So by using 3-5-2 against 4-3-3 wingers, it is therefore very likely for you to lose.

Now, to answer your question, if he plays 4-3-3 wingers, I would use a 4-4-2 diamond formation to counter it.

Now, I hope this clears it up and you may win :)

Try 3-4-3 against a 4-3-1-2

And use 4-3-3 wingers against 3-5-2

--------------------Abbiati(90)----------------

Abate(89)-----Nesta(94)--T.Silva(93)----Taiwo(89)

Robinho(93)-Van bomel(92)--Seedorf(91)-Modric(92)

Re: Counter formations

Hello fellow forumers!

So I have this Cup game actually a final and I'm against Arsenal who play a little like this should I go for 3-5-2?

His tactics:

And My tactics!

screenshot20110622001.jpg

I would actually try 4-3-2-1. Your CM/LM/RM takes care of their 3 fwds as well as their 2 CM with forward arrows, then your 2AM out number their 1 DM and support your lone striker.

As for the tactics I'll leave that up to you! ;)

EDIT: a backward arrow on one of your AMs would help also, filling in the gap in your midfield.

EDIT 2: because of this formation I would try attacking through the middle, because there is a lack of width.
