    And one problem which is bigger than formation itself is that we buy player according to some formation. Now what, for beginning I could change it to butterfly but I'm not fan of weak central mildfield (1 or 2 players in the middle). Don't know what to do...

    My observation is that the weakness this season is the sole striker is not enough. That is why 4-3-3 is so much better this season the three strikers are making a big difference. I also don't like weak central formations, and I think at least 2 MCs is still a must. That is why I am working with 4-4-2 as my base formation now. I am lucky I have two flexible wingers (ML/AML and MR/AMR) I can go from 4-4-2 to 4-2-2w-2 in a snap.

    So far my ML/AML is the superstar this season! Ah well. They keep us guessing!!

    You could try 4-1-4-1 with what you have if you haven't already.

    Only thing I can add is just a personal observation of my V-style last season when it stopped functioning. Whether its all in my head or not, I found an MC who seemed to lower the performance of his neighbouring players even when he played well - I sold him and tried another - his performance didn't set the heather on fire but my wingers saw more of the ball.

    My team is built to play V-style but it doesn't all the time and even when it does it can be Normal, Defending or Hard Defending with various other order changes so its hard for me to comment on changes to a formation when I don't play it consistently one way.

    I've noticed... since i've lost 2:3 home match against much weaker opponent (lol)
    4-5-1 has a weakspot playing against 3MC. No matter of possession stats, the opponent seams to have around the same chances as me. First game i won 0:4, but i guess it was just the odds, cause i had 4 more saves and 2 on goal shots than him. I've noticed the same in league matches... If player have 3MC (5-3-2 flat, 4-1-3-2) he will have much more chances than you.

    So please post if you can prove this or not

    Just to follow up: on the other thread I talked about my problems with the 4-5-1 V against my server's new hotness, the 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow Diamond. I'd had some success with a 3N-DMC-3N-2W-1 formation, man marking with my defending X sitting on his attacking X. It's a minimal change from the V, since I just have to move one defensive winger into the middle and swap the other one for an MC.

    I lost to a ND 2-1 yesterday, but I can't tell if it's because of the formation or just because my guys had a crappy day. I had a rash of 6's and one MC had a 4, and it seems like I had a lot of "just past the post" messages. So I'm going to keep trying it. I'd be glad to hear from anyone else who's having any luck modifying the V.

    It feels almost like if you have a sole striker, you are losing all the time. Try 3-1-2-2w-2. It is a form of V but with two strikers.
    As for me, I am sticking with 4-4-2 as much as possible this season. I have a great DMC who is in full power training now for next season if the V comes back. I will try the 3-1-2-2w-2 and see what happens. but the next formation that I am playing after 4-4-2 is 4-1-3w-2. I will let you know how that goes. ALWAY KEEP TWO STRIKERS AT LEAST.

    That was dumb move from creators, do they watch real football at all? A lot of teams are playing effectively with 1ST, a lot of them use 451V. I don't understand why this once very good formation is now complete crap.
