What's your best/favourite formation at the moment? Before I build my new team I'd like to try and gage what would be the best formation/system to use.
I've been using 5-2-1-2 in my United RTG and enjoyed it, but I feel like I'd like to back to a 4 with my new team. I feel I work well with 2 strikers though.
So maybe 41212(2) or 4312 could be good? Or should I go with the usual 4231?
Tactics fast build up, 1 width so the LF and RF stay a little closer to the striker. Striker is on stay central stay forwards and target man, LF and RF are on stay central stay forward and get in behind.
That’s my go to formation for starting games but I always try to adapt to my opponent. If I feel they’re weak through the middle I’ll change to 4312 and exploit their centre backs. If I feel I’m a lot better then my opponent I’ll change to 352 and overpower them, also if I really need a goal I’ll go 352.
I find a lot of people want to be told the best formation and tactics then stick with it, but there isn’t one simple answer, you have to have diversity and flexibility to change your gameplay in game. I got 3 or 4 extra wins last WL just because of 352. A couple of games I was 2 or 3 goals behind, changed to 352 and won, obviously this isn’t going to happen every time but on occasion it will overwhelm to it opponent, especially if they’ve become complacent, and you can pull it back.
Being versatile is key.
Yeah that's interesting... I guess it's just trying to get a team that can have that flexibility too. I do want a formation that I can settle and at least start with to try and implement a consistent style of play though.
I'v used it for one week now and it got me from Div 4 to Div 2 in few days. And I have team worth of 300K
What tactics do you use mate?
Press after possession
Long ball or Fast build up
Get in behind on striker and wingers - cut in and come into box for crosses
Left and right back to stay back.
Cam to free roam and get into box.
one cm to stay back.
@DannySTFC could you share your tactics for 3-5-2 mate? I'd like to give it a try this weekend when I'm losing etc. Cheers if ya get back to me 🤜🤛
ST - stay forward
LW RW - come back, cut inside, get in box
CAM - get in box, free roam
CM - stay on edge, cover center
CM - stay back, cover center
LB RB - stay back, overlap
GK - come for crosses
Thanks mate, might have to give this a go! Now to build my squad... I'll create a new thread for this
What Div you in mate
Gives me 2 options, width and through the middle. As I usually have 60+% possession, I need overlapping full backs, to break down the defence and the 2 CDM allows me to be less vulnerable on the counter attack. Need my CAM and ST to link up, I can't skill dribble so I can't allow my ST become isolated.
What are you custom twctics and instructions for 433 (4)
