So many play it.. but all i see is people dropping back and counter attack with it.
Till this fifa i played 4231 wide but i switched to 4411 cause it is just fun to play football and create many realistic chances :p but i feel the space between cm's and cb's.
Is the 4231 narrow better than 4231 wide? I play possession based. Searching for the best opportunities, sometimes down the flank and sometimes through the middle..

    I play 4231 narrow since the beginning of this fifa using a possession style and it works quite good. You always have someone to pass it to. You can also have a quick through ball to the wings when the opponent pressures you all game.
    Most importantly the 2 cdms can cover the finesse shots.

    There are only 5 or so solid formations. The rest are hardly used or are for more defensive purposes.

    4-1-2-1-2 (2) for me still.

    I play possession football. Balanced defence.

    I use 41212(2). 1 CDM is plenty for me and I tend to average 60% possession. Can’t get to grips with the 4231. Never seems to work with me.

    My pattern of play is too predictable with 4231, so I switch between 41212(2) and 4222

    4222 seems to overpower the 4231 for me. I switch between 4 different formations.

    433(4)
    4222
    41212(2)
    4231 to close out the game.

    Same here. 41212(2) is my standard. 4231 in the last 10-15 mins if I’m winning and it a hard game. The other two if I’m losing.
