    Not a fan this year, used 3412 a lot towards the end of last year, this year the counter attack down the wing is too strong.

    Anyone else? Using 442 atm

    I use 352 sometimes but after that last patch I struggled to create anything and conceded a lot :/ so I went back to 442

    I’m using 352 currently.

    That’s how it plays in game. Everyone on full chem.

    352 is VERY solid through the middle. Two quick outside CBs helps a lot. And you need wide men with rounded stats and good stamina. Even so you’ll still have to replace them around 70-75 mins.

    It’s a lot of fun and you have so many attacking options.

    Give it a try!

    Surely switch one of your CBs for Jesus to give Perisic full chem?

    Tried 352 in draft and enjoyed it. Been going 352 when losing in WL and it has usually helped me turn the game around.

    Altho you need 2 very strong players at CDM or you will just get run over. Kante and SIF Sigurdsson worked really well for me.

    I tried it, but I was open 24/7. If you can defend you will love this formation because when it comes to the attack you got tons of options. Pressure on opponent is high as hell.

    I used 3-4-2-1 for a long time, it's killer on overlaps but a bit weak at the back.

    Same.

    And that was easily my favorite form last year. If you really want 3atb I think 352 is the best bet this year

    Eusebio, (Ibra or Neymar) and Silva are my 3 subs....Baresi is strong for me for about 60 ish minutes, then on comes silva. Eusebio replaces whatever CM needs to be take off, he goes to ST and KDB drops back. Ibra or Neymar depend on game flow....

    I can't. I'm only about to really try it, I will after this weekend though.

    Like 3412 myself. Not my main formation anymore, but use it regularly. Especially usefull against 2 striker formations or PTB with 3 guys up front and everybody else way back.

    I tried 352 a while back and got G1 using but then the next 2 weeks after that I only just scraped G2.

    I was just finding a lot of players were finding the gaps between the back 3 whereas it's not been as much of a problem with a back 4.

    I always find the CB's are very easy to split up in 3 or even 5 at the back formations. No sure why. So whenever I use those systems I get hammered.

    I have the opposite opinion....my CCB (FB Kompany) fills the middle and the LCB (Prime Rio) and RCB (Prime Baresi) pinch in when he steps up. And they automatically seem to pressure cover balance....

    It might work well if you have decent CBs in all 3 positions tbf. I didn't have great players there when I was using it but if you have 3 decent CBs maybe the gaps wouldn't appear quite so frequently.
