Okay assume you've got 6 players in each position all on 10 form with 12 skill bars, and you know exactly what tactics your opponent is going to play. What do you do to counter the following? 4-4-2 offensive LB 4-4-2 offensive pressure 4-5-1 Normal pressure 3-5-2 defensive 4-3-3 offensive LB 5-4-1 defensive pressure 3-5-2 cautious 5-3-2 v. defensive LB 3-4-3 Normal LB 4-5-1 v. off These are 10 random formations, but it would be interesting to see what everybody does. I'm mainly interested in formation and playing style. Anyway it's late so I'll post what I think in the morning.

IMO in both cases 4-3-3 LB and defensive, unless they were going to use LRS. If they were using LRS I would counter with 3-4-3 pressure and cautious in both cases.

Interesting that you would play defensive with the formation that is a little more defensive (4-3-3) than the formations you would choose to play catious (3-4-3) with and that is the most offensive formation there is on X11. Why? (What I base the assumption on how offensive a formation is http://www.xperteleven.com/viewGlobalMessageN.aspx?

I could go very defensive to achieve this too, but I want to have something for my forwards to work with, as that's my strong point. For 3-4-3 I want to create a maximum of chances, so I do want my midfield in the match, and I know I'm going to lose the midfield dual, but not by much, however I'm confident that I should convert more chances. To be 100% fair, I wouldn't try this if they had a super GK or I had a GK in poor form.

Probably go 3-5-2 normal or offensive depending on my starting 11 form & the referee. I feel that when the ref is high S value I can play offsides and play more offensively because my defence is strenthened. Low S I would refer to normal playing style.

OK, my thoughts is that if there is equal strength I would try to match his 3-5-2 with the same line up (3-5-2) but to play cautious. If he is a bit stronger on MF and Im a bit stronger on the other position I am leaning to play 4 defenders to help the MF a bit to hope that they will help out with their MF since it is "only" 2 at top for them and to play 3 MF and have a little balance on MF and 3 upfront that is stronger than his D and therefore make a mess for him and go with LB cautious or defensive. I am also very curious to try a 4-2-4 LB catiuos/defensive just to see if a "hail mary" really could make a mess since I have 4 on top vs his 3 defenders.

I like what you've done with formation counters but almost disagree with every playing style. It's on neutral ground, you are playing almost cautious or defensive in every situation there. When you are equal strength, why not attack the match and go for the win, rather than sit back and be defensively minded. Too cautious in my opinion. Need to be more aggressive. Being neutral (cup) sometimes you need to be ruthless, and take a step forwards not backwards.

Blev medlem: 2009-05-26 Svar till: ____Jeff Skrivet: 2010-07-06 13:57:40 Citera Svara I just try to counter the opponents offensive since he will be vulnerable at the back and he will not produce that much against my cautious/defensive. When my opponent go for cautious/defensive or defensive formations I do not want to go to offensive but I rather play a offensive formation with a cautious mentality. But thats just my view havent been around for so long and have almost never had an equal or stronger side so I have been used to play normal/cautious/defensive/very defensive....

Well in that case, I would not be playing nearly as defensive as what you've written if all were equal. I'd be confident of my tactics, and play slightly more attacking. I'll write up my formations and playing styles later. Away out at the mo.

I've never had success playing defensive vs v.offensive. For me it's not a matter of matching up the playing styles, but the playing styles and the formations. I think the offensive part of 4-5-1 means you might be better with an extra defender. I think 3-5-2 is the popular choice, but you don't win the midfield, your offence doesn't do anything special against their defence, so you only really win in defence, which is your weakest area. I still like 3-5-2, but I just think you're doing nothing more than shading tactically. 4-4-2 LB defensive offers a great counter attacking tactic IMO. The defensive style places more importances on the defence, which will be acting a little more as the midfield with the LB being used. Means you should be able to create more chances, and your strikers should do the rest. Well that's the rational behind my choice anyway.

I used to for instance like 4-3-3lb against 4-4-2 but this has all but stopped being effective, for me anyway, a few of the formations I like to play when I know a certain formation is coming is simply not getting me the desired result.

What I am finding with the more attacking formations such as 4-3-3 and 3-4-3 at home going with a gung ho offensive is getting me results. On a side not has anyone noticed the amount of over/unders on the market right now? There seems to be shit loads around placing more importance on the agents and evaluating.

Skrivet: 2011-02-15 23:21:35 Citera Svara This is certainly one area of the game that I have never really looked at in great detail, I don't really go with the idea of formation X matching or beating formation Y quite simply because imo its all very theoretical and based on an ideal team/world that doesn't exist. It seems to me that more often than not I can't play what could be considered the ideal counter formation because: a/ my team doesn't have the right players. b/ even when I do I usually have to make exceptions to play weak yoofs. c/ the tactics chosen by the other manager don't match his formation anyway etc etc Mostly though because I'm to lazy too make any notes, keep statistics etc and generally play the game by gut feeling. I guess I'm doomed to be slightly better than average but nothing more than that

Look at this example 4-3-3LB v 3-5-2. Who has won this battle? Well at first you might say 3 strikers v 3 at the back, 4-3-3 has the edge, but that's not the full story is it. What if in this example the 3-5-2 played long range shot, suddenly they're winning the midfield and hurting the 4-3-3 side with that. Basically my point is that any formation can counter any other formation, but your other tactics need to make use of your advantage.

I've always been quite a big believer in formation counters. That said, all things being equal there's a lot to be said from saying "no I'm not going to let the opposition dictate the tactics" and simply play your strongest XI. Basically my formation matchups tend to be quite similar to that table Holidays produced a while back. I usually don't let things like pressure or "attackingness" affect me, but long balls cm=ome into it a lot. As a general rule, if the opposition plays long balls then most of the time I'll undercut the midfield again. I also have a vague theory - albeit with nothing to back it up - that having one less midfielder is OK with long balls, two less midfielders is a bad thing, but thre less midfielders (ie 2 vs 5) is OK. As I say, that's just an idee fixe in my head. In answer to the original question... 4-4-2 offensive LB 4-3-3 LB 4-4-2 offensive pressure probably 4-5-1 or 3-5-2, without pressure 4-5-1 Normal pressure 3-4-3 long balls, or 4-4-2 long balls 3-5-2 defensive toe-to-toe with 3-5-2, or 4-5-1 offensive 4-3-3 offensive LB 4-2-4 or 5-2-3 long balls if I've got the squad to support it. Otherwise possibly 4-5-1 5-4-1 defensive pressure I've always though 5-4-1 has no "natural" counter. Maybe 4-5-1, or 3-4-3 long balls 3-5-2 cautious As above for 3-5-2: either 4-5-1, or 3-5-2, or 4-4-2 long balls 5-3-2 v. defensive LB Ideally 4-2-4 or 5-2-3 long balls; otherwise 4-5-1 3-4-3 Normal LB 5-2-3 long balls 4-5-1 v. off 4-4-2 long balls, or 3-5-2 Ultimately, and maybe it's an obvious point, you play with XIs to suit your squad. In a couple of teams, including this one, I've got poor and/or small midfields, but lots of/good strikers, so 4-3-3 and 4-2-4 are the order of the day; in other teams I've got very strong midfields so rarely deviate from 4-5-1, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2.

Two points: Duffster likes 3-5-2. The example above - explain your rationale?

Formation match ups are only so good as the strength of the players in the various positions. I know one of the rules was that "same strength/form" but thats just not something that ever happens. There is always an area i feel i can expose and similarly an area of the pitch i feel i can be exposed in. So i will set up my team (formation and playing style wise) to expose those areas or to strengthen my weaknesses. If everything else was exactly equal i don't think formation makes one bit of difference for the most part. So the choice of LBs and Pressure is the only aspect that changes things in these examples imo.
