I played against it twice this evening n both times i really struggled, so i tried it. Seemed quite defensive obviously, even with sandro and lala going forward. Anyone any advice on the formation, would like to maybe give it a go n just wondering if anyone has used it effectively without drop back 1 depth bs...

    If you find 5212 Too defensive, try switching to 352 IG. There is a guide on this forum.

    Ever since @RayS made that post I've been seeing it a lot lately... there must be a **** ton of forum trolls that don't post lol because I came against it 5 times in weekend league. Before that, I've never seen it in over 2k games played.

    Either that or a youtuber is talking about it... worked well for a few games then went to **** for me. Back to 433(5) for now.

    Just played and won 4 games in a row with it, didnt set up switching to 352 yet n im sure its only a honeymoon period but very solid and if u set up right attacking at the same time... getting the balance will be difficult but can always revert to 4 atb ingame, pim bobby moore still a rock at cdm if need be 🙂

    Neal Guides made a video over his 5-2-1-2 tactics. I use it for about half the game, it works really well. The only reason I switch it up throughout the game is my WBs are dead tired @ about the 75 minute mark if I don't switch tactics. I have thought about carrying 2 WB subs and running it the whole game.

    I've been using it since i have received a ton of outside backs and CMs from league sbcs. I wanted to have two strikers still and found this to be decent. I have a 3-5-2 setup for in game switch if i need more attack. Though having Telles and Mendy alternating on the left with Kimmich and Schulz or Kostic on the right I can usually stay with this formation

    i've played it as my 1st half formation for the last 4 months or so.

    it's great with high press.

    max depth on defense, 9 width on offense, balanced build up.

    the only instructions i use are cam stay forward/conservative interceptions. both wing backs on join the attack/overlap.
