    how about this counter? Defensive/short passes/mixed/zonal

    I have thought that as long as he has no direct full back I can play with 3 defenders

    More midfield players will make the ball in my possession

    1 AMC and 2 ST can find a way to the goal

    what do you think?

    I don't know, 3 DC for 2 ST looks like a waste of a DC for me, plus the DMC who is imho a waste as well.
    Also, the way he placed his players, I'm pretty sure he's gambling on counter attacks as well. Go Dutch on him, go for broke! One of the most beautiful sayings of the Dutch football philosophy is that "your desire to win should be bigger than your fear of losing".

    Isn't 4v2 better than 2v2?

    A good defence is the best offense.

    Is it, but you're also filling positions or spaces that are already covered. I would look to create numerical superiority in the higher end of the pitch. That's just my humble opinion.

    Also, if you're using zonal defense, you know as well as me that it's never 2v2.
