    What is 'tanking' and how can formations be classed as 'illegal' (Newbie here)

    So i here this word 'TANKING' alot but do not know what it means?
    Also - I see people moaning about people playing two wingers etc and calling this an illegal formation? Surely as long as he has 7 players on the pitch he can play them anywhere? In football you can set up your team however you like?

    there are real rules of football, and then there are Nordeus rules of football. You cannot have 3 players lined up on either side of the pitch. so for example, you cannot have

    -----------ST-ST--------------
    -AML--------------------AMR-
    -ML--------MC-----------MR-
    ------------------------------
    -DL---------DC------------DR-

    illegal according to Nordeus but not in real life.

    -----------ST-ST--------------
    -AML--------------------------
    -ML--------MC-MC-MC---------
    -------------------------------
    -DL---------DC--DC------------

    Also illegal according to Nordeus. reason: nobody on right side. you have to have at least one on each wing but not more than two.

    Ask Nordeus why they set it up this way, but that is the way wingers work.

    U can't play without ST or withles than 2 defenderrs s that too is illegal. Have at least 1 players in each flank but not more than 2. Have at least 4 players ahead of the hlfline.
    U do NY thing else and that's an illegl formation. Then u get only 20% possession. The even more genius part is, u cab still win with 20% possession. Stupid Nordeus.


    Should Kaka' have been selected for Brazil's WC squad?
