never play 2DM's in 4-4-2 formation.
3. Attack is the best defense.
i disagree on both those points.
Attack is not the best defence.
And playing with 2 DM's in a 4-4-2 formation can be really helpful(if you play it right of course). but then again it comes to every tactic in the world if u play it right etc.
back to the attack and defence point.
Attacking is good, defending is good. But none of them are better than each other to make anything better.
In the end its all about the team and its work. the defenders need to do their job and the attacking players need to do their job.
And then a team should be there for each other. And if you have a great squad that can play AS A TEAM. then you dont have to worry about the defence or the attack.
for an example you can get all the tactics in the world correct. But in the end it will be the mentality that will be decisive.
he he it is ok to disagree.
i am just talking of my experience.
I played with weak Barnet,bring them to PL,than with England,Bayern and so on,and i never had some big result from just defending.
i am not talking not to give attention on defence, my advice is to look very closely on midfielders,because they are the most important for the attack,and of course for defence,but thing is,you can defend with just defenders,but you can not attack just with attackers,so i think mid's are very important for attack,and that is why i am talking to improve attacking skils.
also,about 2DM's ,YES it is ok to have 2DM's in 4-4-2 but IF YOU KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM GOOD,and this guy is asking for some advice,so he is not good as you Red :)and of course i think it is better to stick of some basics.if you dont know how to pair them,they will disturb each other.
