    I took Talisman's advice, used 4-5-1 v against 4-4-2. Defensive down the flanks long passing, counter on.. 2nd half changed mixed passing and took counter off. Won 3-2 against a slighly stronger opponent... Thanks for the info!

    Glad that helped, Kylos. Still waiting to hear from Jackers, though.

    In my experience 4-5-1V is one of those formations which relies on really good players in key positions. The defensive part is strong and takes care of itself, it is the offensive part which is the tricky bit, and I really didn't get on with 4-5-1V until I got a couple of strong wingers (see this post Special Skills discussion) - with these wingers I can almost put any striker in at the front and the attack flows to the extent that I have about 90% success against any formation that is countered by 4-5-1V.

    Glad to see their is a win

    here ihave another counter formation for 4-4-2

    4-3-1-2. 4 defenders (DL - DC - DC - DR), 3 midfielders (MC), 1 attacking midfielder (AMC) and 2 strikers. With defensive team mentality, focus passing through the middle, pressing style own half, tackling style normal, passing style mixed, marking style zonal and checked both forced counter attack and offside trap.

    Narrow Diamond is not one of the recommended counters, but if you are having success with it, that's OK for you, you may have the players to pull it off.
    forget dat bullsh0t... what is the recommendation against old mourinho? (3N-2W-3N-0-2)... it says narrow diamond... >>>
    HAD MY GREATEST 2 losses from dat advice

    btw mate and me always using narrowd diamond against 4-4-2 and the success rate is somewhere above 95%

    dat counter database is a little bit outdatet and not up2date imho...
