    The 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow Diamond

    Is it now officially the worst possible formation in the game?
    From being a great counter to 4-4-2 traditional I just saw a decent enough team take a 5-0 beating against a way weaker side.

    The stronger team fielded a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow diamond with a team concisting of all 4*-players except for one striker and the AMC who were 3*s. The weaker team played a 4-3W-1-2 with one 4*-player, seven 3*-players, one 2*-player and two 1*-star players.
    The weaker team had 43% of the ball but managed a staggering 16 shots on goal to the stronger team's 5. 8-8 in corners and 0 - 5 in saves in favor of the stronger team.

    It was an odd one.

    If that's so, then Top Eleven should fix it. There shouldn't be a better formation than another.
    In the case you mention, it may be luck, or even very bad tactic choices (eg attacking mentality + counter attack, defensive + offside trap, etc)
