    I usually switch to it in the second half works for me

    Just the standard one with LM and RM, seems a really good fit for the players I have.

    Narrow plays a bit like a more attacking 4231 narrow, swapping a CDM for a ST. Or that's how it felt for me.

    41212 wide depends on your custom tactics, you can set it so its solid defensively with wingers coming back in or playing 5 staying back and 5 staying forward, which is actually quite effective if you are a good defender.

    I'm thinking like this...

    Once I have PIM Kluivert, Skriniar isn't banned and Bernardo is on 10 chem :joy:

    It feels like the only formation I can get Bernardo into with full chem, any other formation suggestions with this team??

    I tend to use this formation in SB but online the boring 4-2-3-1 is definitely better (for me at least).

    I've just picked up TOTY Kante so might try it again online. I think the key is to have a mobile CDM

    Just doesn't fit what I have (all untradeable)

    And that's why I'm going with Bona over RTTF MVS, he's good (not great) at everything including defending.

    every tactics work in this game. you either win 7/10 or 4/10. depends on the mood of the game. And yes this game has a mood like a jealous wife when going out with the gf

    Partly true Haha, however some formations I just cant use to save my life.

    Been using 4-4-2(2) for a while now but want Bernardo in the team!

    I play 4-1-2-1-2 narrow with 6 depth 8 wide, press on heavy and balanced attack.
    Front 3 stay forward and aggressive interceptions, the rest is standard.
    It's alot of fun when the game lets it be.

    The the others are just not fit to your playstyle.

    I really enjoy 41212 this year. CDM helps out the defense and the CAM helps link with the attack. Let’s me fit in some wingers so I can play the ball out wide. Not bad at all IMO

    I’ve enjoyed using it recently, nothing fancy on cts, just obvious ones like cdm stay back etc although I do tell my LM/RM to stay wide whereas others suggest telling them to cut inside

    Nice to hear good feedback @Wooly1203 can I ask what division etc you are in? I'm div 2 and normally get gold 2/3.

    @CustardHippo my favourite CB on the game, I know it sounds silly but he never messes up.

    @Satch85 what's your full set up mate? Any tactics you can share? I'm a direct player, I play for fun, I hate a boring possession game.

    Then you'd love the narrow 41212.

    Should I just switch? I honestly hate the thought of it though.

    I’m sitting in D5 this year. Haven’t played anywhere near as much as normal due to work and didn’t start the game until probably February/March this year. I’ve been playing a mix of Divisions and SB. I’m usually a Div1/2 player in a normal year.

    Narrow is good but you need to have your cms cover wing. You can be badly exposed on the wings if your fbs are on balanced or join attack. Haven’t tried 4231 but might try it.
