    4 5 1 v style?

    Please explain the 'v style' part. Does it mean a flat 5 man midfield or what?

    Thanks

    i use that formation quite a lot. it lacks aggressiveness against heavy defensively formation such as 4 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 2...

    i am not joking :S my opponent got a draw from me with that strategy... (and i was the 'favorite')

    if i dont fight against such defensive formations i would use

    team mentality: defense
    focus passing : down both flanks
    passing style: short
    force counterattacks: on

    pressing style: low (i change it depending of attackers quality)
    tackling style: easy (idk why but my team is really aggressive... always end up with 1 or 2 yellow cards if i have it at normal...)
    marking style: zonal (idk when to change it)
    play offside trap: off

    it gave me some good results... (reach league 1st, champion league quarter finals and cup finals) but it is not working as good as it was doing all my opponents are now using 4(d) - 2(dm) or 4 - 1 formations...
