Im an average player on this game, win some, lose some but I can't get past div 4! I know some people have the knack and are better than me but to nearly always title div 5 then hit div 4 and draw just 1 then lose the other 9 is crazy right? I know probs gonna get slaughtered for not knowing stuff but it feels a little for this to happen all the time..

    I have the exact problem. I don't play with wingers and feel like I need to again. I use 4312 and my players ain't moving. I played opp with same formation and lesser players and he was murdering me. Wide runners, on me like a rash and cutting down my passes. I just do t know how to get my squad to play like this as instructions don't appear to be working. When I changed to this formation I got to Div 1 but now with better (much) better players it isn't working

    Try using 4-3-3 (4). Your players will create much more space on the field than in the 4-3-1-2, and that will make your counter attacks very dangerous.

    I hate to say it, but learn to shield like an a**hole and you'll be fine.

    Shield - play a passing game - WIDTH WIDTH WIDTH

    4312 is 1 dimensional and relies on ping pong passing through middle of the pitch.

    If you get the passing game down well with a wingers formation, you can progress up through the divisions alot more successfully - it is possible to play patiently and play the same way nearly every game, the main difference is having good enough players to consistently manage this.

    try 5212. It's wide and kind of like 4312 as well.

    Fullbacks on overlap.

    Pressure and long passing in the 60s, aggression in the 70s.

    Plus it's more fun than 4312, especially if you like crossing.

    You sound like me. I breeze 5 but rarely win more than 3 in Div 4. I can hold, but not win promotion.

    It just seems to play faster, you get swarmed by players constantly.

    When your attacker is about to receive the ball immediately pass back (LB+A), chances are quite high your opponent will push a defender out as they are pressing like mad. Then time the lob through pass correctly, and you should be on goal. Difficult to master but effective.

    it doesn't work because if there is any defender in the proximity he will get auto guided to LB+Y (body position or momentum doesn't matter)

    There's more. Even if you can't score like that, chances are your opponent will start easing off allowing you to move around more freely.

    Yeah mate, the speed of the game just goes through the roof! Even if shield and try to slow things down sterling will butt ❤️❤️❤️❤️ my tots glusokov and basically murder him then it's another goal for them somehow..

    My first game in div 5 last night, scored a hat trick in the 20 mins and matey rage quits! Can't even win a game properly

    Tried it, liked it. Going to keep using it for a while and see how it goes. Cheers for the advice.

    No prob.

    It may not be as effective as the more narrow formations in the long run, but I enjoy playing more with the pitch opened up.

    Div 4 and 3 is full of kids who just double man pressure with rb and then spam through balls after taking the ball. best thing to do is get into a rythm with slow passing. Take your time i hardly ever use sprint. Use shielding when moving the ball to your forwards pass back also fake shot stop face up dribbling is extremely effective
