    4-5-1 V Nerfed?

    Just wondering as lately i am not getting as good results as i was (even against much weaker teams, i just barely win 1-0 or even draw!). Has anyone same problem with this formation?

    Your formation should depend on what your opponent plays, there is no one formation to beat all others. 4-5-1 is most effective against 4-4-2 apparently.

    Yes, i know that... but previous season and at the start of this season i used to win by huge difference (even 13-0) to weaker teams, no matter the formation they used... now... i barely get 3-4 goals max... Something has changed and dunno what (i changed my 2 MC, got 2 scouts, so results should be better). If i am playing vs a team that has score 25 and me 45, i expect a big difference and score many goals, now it looks like is not like this anymore...

    yes, I had the same problem but like the previous post says I have now started adapting formations to counter opponents formations which is working.

    Same here, but changing all the time is not good neither, it looks like players performs better when you have a steady formation ( like in real soccer). I noticed around day 9/10 something has changed!!!!

    If you want to score more play 4-2-2-2 hexagon. 4-5-1 who ever say it works well against 4-4-2 please prove it to me. It don't make sense on paper and I have tried it I didn't get the results I wanted. All in all, I prefer 2-0 the best, then 1-0 over 2-1. Its better not to conceit and its dangerous when you're 2-0 up and they get 1 back shifting the momentum their way. A win is a win, I'm enjoying it more as I have total control of the game, more possession even though I average less than 3 goals/game I'm happy.

    had same problem
    but now beat them easily

    go for
    4-5-1 flat ( both, mix, counter, def) (with ↑ for all LM/RM RB/LB .. but test that and change it during the game)
    or
    3-2W(DML/R)-2-2W-1 .. i don't have DML or DMR .. but using my LM and RB with no problem
