What are some of the characteristics for each formation?

Recommended Posts

Maybe not each formation but the main ones, like 4-3-3, 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-5-1, 4-1-2-1-2, 3-5-2, and 5-3-2. I think those are the main ones.

Sorry if this question doesn't make sense, or can't really be answered. What I mean by that is like

Mentality: suits Counter/suits Standard/suits Control

Style: suits Rigid/suits Balanced/suits Fluid

Team Instructions: Which ones don't make sense/which ones work well

So for example, say 4-3-3 is like (I don't know if this is true in any way, but just to illustrate)

Suits Standard or Control

Suits Balanced or Fluid

Direct Passing/Higher Tempo/Push Higher up work well. Maybe Hassle Opponents, Pump ball into box, and Look for overlap don't really make sense with this formation.

Formations are neutral. They mainly represent your defensive shape, and they can work with all sorts of different styles of play if you have the right players.

I think any mentality and fluidity can suit any formation and it depends on your play style. But certain play styles are more common for each formation. Maybe I'll start

4-4-2: generally a more direct attack with lots of width. Defensively can sit back with the '2 banks of 4' or be more proactive and press like atletico last season

4-1-2-1-2: generally shorter passing down the middle of a narrow midfield.
