    I thought i had with 4411 but then it went downhill in div 2 lol. Now on 352

    How is going with 3 atb in Div 2?

    Only played 2, win and a draw, seems quite solid though with the cdms staying back

    I played with this formation few times, and jordi alba and mbappe as midfielders did good job on defense.

    I bounce between 4231 and 352. The only complaint I have is when I switch to 352 I just feel so exposed even though I have my CDMs back

    I can't call it 'definitive' - it's just way too early for that.

    But 4411 is working very, very well so far.

    I am switching between 41212(2) and 4231 at the moment. I am finding that 4231 works better really but I do struggle having only 1 striker sometimes.

    It's a bit of a catch 22. Either I only have 1 striker and struggle without having 2 or I have only 1 CDM and struggle without a second :lol:

    Any suggestions welcome.

    352 then haha

    Always enjoyed 3 atb formation - 3412 ('12 & '13) then moved to 352 from '16 onwards.

    Haven't ventured into them for the first week or so. Then, yesterday used 3421, with the ST having F9 instructions - worked well. Good thing is you can get wingers on full chem, whilst having a "passing" ST - effectively acting as a CF/CAM.

    Think I'll start planning more teams around this.

    Using 41212(2) but seeing people on about 4231 narrow makes me wonder if to try it, only issue is i have best so would have to be tactic change. Anyone used both and can say which they find better?

    I am using 5 formations, games I match up with difficult opponents, I switch formation on the fly to throw my opponent... it works like magic..find lots of formations you are comfy with , then pounce

    I like how there’s such a variety of formations people are liking in this thread! Makes a nice change from 41212(2) every game

    4-4-1-1 (CAM) version is my favourite so far

    Used 4231 with CAMs all 18 and it was perfect for me. Struggling to find room on the edge of the box for my Central CAM to finesse this year. Gonna try 3412 tonight, anticipating problems against wingers but looks like it might have everything in attack

    Was trying to decide between 4231 and 41212(2) for ages as I like having 2 strikers but I also like having 2 CDMs.

    Finally settled on 4222 and it's working so well. I used it for the majority of 18 so that's probably why.

    I've just realised this is actually a thing. How does this differ to the CF version, as the links and positions are identical?
