    Sticking To or Changing Lineup

    Do you stuck to the same lineup irrespective of your opponent's formation or do you chop and change to match what lineup your opponent has? I must admit that I change my team around all the time but I read on here that managers stick with a fixed formation and go hundreds of games unbeaten!

    I am on a 100 game unbeaten run right now and I change formation all the time 🤔
    Depending on opponent. Can't beat much stronger opponents without doing it in my experience

    I change formation and tactic for every game. Playing same formation is weaker, it only works when you play bad opponents!

    Im in the middle . I think that changing formation accordingly to your opponent is better , but I also try to have a "basis"

    I build around a 4-5-1 kind of formation. But it's flexible and could easily be converted to 2-5-2-1, 2-3-2-2-1, 2-3-2-1-2, 4-1-4-1, 4-4-1-1, 3-2-4-1, 3-2-2-3, 3-2-2-2-1. Tactics change depending on opposition and formation.

    Seems like you much prefer playing one striker. In what situations would you play two? When your opponent only plays 1xCB? Also, I always play 4 at the back so that I’m marking my opponent’s wingers.

    it depends man , if you don't have sufficient tokens then its wise enough to build strong starting line up and try to go as far as you can .
    if u have 100 odd tokens and you buy smartly then u can have decent overall squad depth which gives you freedom to make experiments and adjust according to opponent team's tactics

    in pro football not many teams make changes to their starting line up often , yes they make some tactical tweaks here and there against some seriously strong teams at max

    I never play 2 STs. Some of those lineups refers to an AMC as the '1' and not a ST meaning I'm playing sans ST. The reason being that an AMC helps out with defensive tasks, which a ST doesn't. So it depends on opposition strength and midfield.

    The amount of players in the back line depends on the opponent. If the opponent is playing ST AML AMR I play DL DC DR, if STx2 then I play classic DL DC DC DR with a DMC etc. It really depends on the opposition and whether I want to overcrowd the center or flanks.
