[quote name='Cougar2010']Probably because you build your tactics to attack rather than defend & counter.[/QUOTE]

No, complete guessing on your part. I usually play 4-4-2 with standard mentality and often set it to counter when I'm in the lead. Sometimes I play a 4-5-1 with nothing really changing.

There is more to setting up a specific counter attacking tactic than picking a fairly standard formation and using a "Counter" team mentality.

You're the one talking about counter attacking. i'm just saying I don't set attacking tactics.

How exactly do you set your team up, what roles and duties are your players given, especially centre halves, full backs and central mids?

[quote name='milnerpoint']Hang on, you've already made it clear you havent really watched them, yet your telling me im not watching the games properly? Have a day off.

Having class and dominating a game are two completely different things altogether, and do not need to be tied into each other.

Do you actually watch football?[/QUOTE]

Do you? I don't care how many times Man U lost to Fulham, or if they lost 50:0, Man U would always have more of the ball. That's all I was trying to say

So you dont watch football then, if you did, you would know what your saying is complete rubbish, and more importantly you would know that having more of the ball doesnt mean you have dominated the game, or have been the better team. Infact without goals it means nothing.

If Man U lost 50-0 they'd still have more of the ball than Fulham?

Amazing.

This is turning into one of the funniest threads I have read in along time. Feed the troll, he certainly seems to be winding up enough people.

I am sure he is doing this deliberately as no one not even himself can believe what he is saying lol.

Ackter and milnerpoint I think you are both doing a grand job in the face of adversity, you have my support :)

Most of the big upsets happen at around the 50/50 possession mark, though it usually tips 49% to the weaker side.

Not sure the Chelsea v Man Utd match will prove much though, they're both quite equal.

Why you posting results? Swansea 3 Arsenal 2? Good performance by Swansea but if you watched the full 90 minutes Arsenal would of had more of the ball

In the context of this season tho you could say they are a stronger team. But your right it is probably the worst example of the 3.

Clearly reading is also something you need to do before coming back to this debate, look at the stats in each of those games and you will see your wrong.

They shared exactly 50% possession of the ball during that match.

On the reverse side, Man City are the experts at absolutely dominating then messing up. It doesn't happen often, but when it does it's all over the place with them. They've had near 60% possession against some teams and still got done over.

Does that count for the majority of the match though? Fifa 2012 for example, in one of my games I had 60% possession and then it went roughly even by the end of the match and that's how the match stats showed at the end of the game, a roughly even ball possession.

Ahah, that's fantastic.

That accounts for the entire match. For every section where Arsenal have 60% possession, Swansea must have had the equivalent of an equal spell at 60% possession in order for it to end up at 50%.

What I mean is, for example, Arsenal dominating for long periods of the match, and then the other team having a spell of ball possession near the end to even things out.

I dont think you understand how that stat is calculated, before it could be 50/50 both teams must have had the ball for an equal amount of time, throughout the whole game. No periods of anything, the whole entire match from the first whistle to the last.

if the game ends with 50-50 possession, each team spent the same time over the 90+mins with the ball as without it.

My earlier statement about you being short of the full picnic was quite clearly wrong, you're actually missing the full picnic & have no idea where the outdoor feast is taking place.

[quote name='milnerpoint']Your completely mental :)[/QUOTE]

Dude, listen to what I'm saying, you can't throw fulltime ball possession at me in a bid to prove me wrong. Watch the full 90 minutes. Watch that Arsenal game. The reason I'm questioning the possession on the site is because that may not be a true reflection of the entire match, hence why I didn't post links to full time stats.

Also, the Champions league is a little bit different

For example, a team can dominate for the majority of the match and then change their mentality allowing the other team to catch up on the possession stats

Sigh, are we really going to have to spoon feed you on this.
Arsenal cannot have had more possession, the stats were 50/50 for the entire game, come on mate this isnt hard to grasp, it really isnt. Arsenal did NOT have more of the ball in that game, even if it goes against what you claim, they still didnt have the ball for more than half the game.
Your right champions league follows different possession rules clearly Man U had the ball more than Ajax, just the stats tell us the exact opposite.

If a team dominated possession for the majority of the match, I'm assuming that you mean they had 60% possession for at least 60% of the match?

I never said that Arsenal had 60% posession here. I'm just saying that the much better team always has more of the ball the majority of the time. I don't care if the crap team is able to squeeze some posession back 70 minutes into the game

Excuse me but if I'm not mistaken here, a team can edge possession and then the other team can bring it back, provided there is enough time?

If possession was 50/50 then both teams would have had an equal amount of time spent on the ball during the 90 minutes. Regardless of how it was done whether it be at the start, middle or end each team would have had the same.

Anyways you're becoming tiresome and you're only here for the wind up. No doubt this thread will be closed soon now as its morealess run it's course.

I think mumble jumbo should stop embarrassing himself, or trolling, whichever he is doing.

Usually I like to be more constructive than that, but in this instance there is no point.

Ok, get it, I understand what you all mean, but you're acting as if ball possession can't fluctate during the match, Example, a team can't allow the other team to have more time on the ball after having the edge for long periods of the match
