so ive used 4231(2) before and i like the formation but it just seems quite hard to get an attack going, anyone kindly share their instructions/customs and some tips if they have any!

Cheers :smiley:

    I have 4231(2) used it quite a while and it worked pretty good in my BPL team

    Didn't use customs and didn't even check my players workrates, just team instructions:


    Defenders: Always stay at back, even the backs

    CDM's: Depends on who u got, lets say if u got a BPL team and someone Mikel there I would suggest to let him stay back, but some1 like Fabregas should go balanced or even just going forward if ur really confident (But then CDM next to him should only stay back ofc).
    Like u can see it's just about finding the perfect balance.

    LM's RM's: Only stay forward, since u always need them in attack and because ur LB en RB are staying back the team stays balanced. Also important very important Cutting inside and going deep (or whatever its called).

    CAM: Stay forward and Free roam

    ST: Depends on who u got, but just use your logic, like a big strong guy should mostly be the targetman ;)


    Just keep it all balanced.

    If u want ur backs to go forward, u should let ur wingers come back sometimes.
    If u like ur CDM's to join the attack often, let ur CAM come back at times

    etc etc.

    CDMs aggressive interceptions and stay back



    start game:
    go defensive
    team press
    counter attack

    why is it?
    this formation is made for sitting back and counter attacking hence the reason I posted what i did

    i didnt tell him to park the bus!!

    if you want attacking go with maybe 1 cdm formation

    You can't use high pressure and counter attack tactics
    Can use team press and another but not those two together

    CDMs don't touch their instructions
    CBs on aggressive interceptions
    Winger on cut inside stay forward and and get in behind
    Striker on stay central, get in behind aggressive interceptions and press back line
    The reason why I tell you to not touch the CDMs is because if you put them to stay back there will be a huge gap in the middle as your wingers stay forward and there's no point for wingers to come back as they lose stamina and without them no attack. U can use aggressive int on cdm but they will be out of position more often but if you want to get the ball quicker its up to you.
    Fullbacks on balanced if they have M/M workrates otherwise on stay back and on conservative int on both cases.

    Custom tactics.

    Works good on this team

    Pedro-Iniesta-Hulk
    Busquets-Witsel
    Azpilicueta-Phil Jones-Terry-Smolnikov
    Begovic/Hart

    The instructiona/tactics are only for this team not sure if they work on others but as far as attacking and chance creation is very awesome

    I find 4231 to be a much better implementation of 4321 (which is the other formation I like), with 4231 your wide mids really have space to do their thing, I'd go with two natural wingers.... Messi/Hazard/Neymar/Bale are absolutely a perfect fit for this formation and they really raise havoc .... I find myself scoring much more with RM/LM on 4231 (2) than with the RF/LF on 4321...

    That said, as others pointed out, you need a solid mid to make this work as they gaps are wider.... If anything invest in a top CDM (or 2) and a top AMC.

    Keep in mind that instructions are very much trivial.. It really depends on your play style....
