Top Eleven Be a Football Manager gives the flexibility to use several formations although only a few of them work effectively. Many managers wonder about what formation should be used to get a satisfactory result. Now the selection of a formation depends on the opposition’s formation and quality and the manager can choose formations to counter, accordingly. We have already posted a very useful article about counter formation with tactics and managers can go for those formations to counter the opponent.
But the problem arises when a manager doesn’t have a decent player for a particular formation. for example, if the counter-formation uses ML and MR and the manager has only AML and AMR then no point in using that counter-formation. So, making the squad versatile might prove costly as buying players with multiple positions or buying players from all positions is tough due to the busy transfer market. So, it is hard to have decent players for all positions.
Due to these restrictions/ constraints, one manager should have a default formation which he/she uses most of the time which includes all the best players in the club. So, how to choose that default formation? To answer this question we have to look around the recent popular formations in the top eleven that the successful managers are using and are working these days like a charm.
From various feedback and discussions, we found three formations that are giving satisfactory results and the successful managers are using them nowadays, which we are going to discuss one by one.
Top Eleven best formations: 4-5-1 V
This is the most popular formation in Top Eleven nowadays as it balances both attack and defense. Managers just need to have well-trained AMR and AML and then they will become Goal Machines.
Top Eleven best formation: 4-2-3-1
This is another successful formation in the top eleven these days which works especially against weaker or same quality teams. It gives more attacking opportunities.
Top Eleven best formation: 3-1-2-3-1
This is a very attacking formation that can rip the opponent apart. However, if the manager is facing a stronger opponent or the opponent manager is playing with 2 ST, it is recommended that the manager use the above two formations rather than using this one.
If you have come across any other very effective formation/s then please let us know and feel free to ask if you have any doubts or in understanding any part of the article. Your valuable suggestion is always appreciable.
