    Any advice about this troll result ?

    This is a starting level 2 team I just started this month , and I was wondering why i lost ?!
    He was playing with 4-5-1 and I countered him with 3-5-2 to make a good score - according to http://forum.topeleven.com/formation...-what-use.html - then i was surprised with this result .
    I was there and my possession was +3% .
    Besides my team is 18 overall rating against 13 overall rating .

    any good explanation ?

    Table of Counter Formations - What to use?

    july forth win only 80% of his matches, it means that 1/5 matche counter don't works. if you lost 1-0 i don't see anything wrong.

    my advice is kick ass next match, i had 1-1 yet with 70% possession only managed 4 shots on goal yet other team with 30% managed 11 shots on goals with them scoring 1st and i scored in 89th minute, so far this season these are the only point`s i`v dropped and not changed tactics and only have to change formation twice

    There is no such things as counter formations. It's about buying the right players and utilising them correctly.

    I was trolled 1-0 today in the Champs League.

    Just got to suck it up and see if I can overturn it on Tuesday. My team is vastly superior but I don't hold much hope at the moment.

    yep, suck it up and duke it. only thing that makes sense
    i too dont believe in counter formations, so i just keep faith in 4-5-1 CAM and switch the CAM to a CF or CDM depending on results

    you only lost 1-0 ? and it's probably cause he was using counter attack and punished you .

    I lost 4-0 against a team quality 15 and mine was 26

    Lol at you relying on the counter table as if it's going to guarantee wins.

    One piece of advice for you. YOU make the decisions for your team, don't let a table dictate your style of playing.

    If you intend on playing this game longer you need to be independent and improvise on orders and formations. Personally I use what I feel is best for my team and I rarely ever use the counter formations table. This is not to say that the table is BS as a lot of it is accurate... However, the formations table should only be used as guidance and not letting it take over your way of playing.

    Get used to it.

    This is by far and away the single best bit of advice I have read on these forums.... should be framed ... put on a wall ... and repeated before every match.

    If your team is superior against your opponent, you have a very good chance to overturn it. Lately, I was trolled 0-2 against a team which was 7Q lower than mine. I didn't watch that game and neither did my opponent. On the away game, I put all my best players in and secured 3 goals in 15 mins. By the time, my opponent started to support his team, everything has been settled. My team won 6-0 finally. Like you said, just suck the troll result and hope for the best in the next match. NGE troll me quite a number of times this season. I just swore at it once and then move on.
