Okay so I'm thinking of starting a new save with either juventus, Liverpool or QPR but instead of doing a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 or even the basic 4-4-2 as my main tactic I want to us the 3-5-2 (3 CB's, 2 WB's, 3 CM's, 2 forwards). but I'm not too sure how I would set it up.... what philosophy? marking should I go zonal or mixed?

I haven't seen a lot of the 3-5-2 in football games tbh that's why I'm asking for advice only a few games when Liverpool tried it under king kenny a few seasons ago.

please don't give me a link for a download for someone else successful tactic, can someone just give me a helping hand and start me off it would be much appreciated.
Hello,

Here is my formation of 3-5-2:

My results with this tactic were:

2 titles with Udinese in the first 2 seasons
1 title with Atalanta (played only one season)
1 title with Juventus and the Champions League (played only one season)

thanks razwy...... do you use man or zonal marking?
Mate, can't remember, i'm at work, but i will look at it tonight. I have the tactic saved on my computer for about 3-4 months, didn't change much from then and i forgot.

Ha i damaged my foot can't work for a few weeks..... plenty of time to devise a awesome tactic me thinks
You could play like this:

GK
CB-CB-CB
DM-DM
DW-BBM-BWM-DW
SS
F9-AF
I think the first reply is spot on..

However, if you really feel like experimenting you could use one player as a sweeper...

Also, since youre Juve, play Pirlo in a Regista role - he is absolutely lethal there..

Let us know how you setup in the end :D

I'm nearly 3 quarters through my 1st season with juve.... I'm 10 points clear in serie A and I'm in the final of the Italian cup and have a 1 nil goal lead against Borussia Dortmund in the champions league. I setup with 3 cb's 2, wb's,1 dm, 2 cm's and two forwards ond plays as a deep lying forward role and advanced forward role.... I also play with fluid philosophy with various player instructions but this varys depending on the opponent and during the game.

I've played pirlo in the registra role and he doesn't play to great to be honest I signed Fernando from porto and he benefits my team more (more stability), I can only get pirlo to
play effectively in one of the cm positions as a DLP with the support duty.

Btw does anyone played the 3-5-2 with MR & ML instead of wingbacks and do they track back?

cheers in advance!!! :)

If you set them to Defensive Wingers or Wide Midfielders (Defensive) then they should, in theory, track back.
