I have always loved 3-5-2 formations,and in older CMs (like 01-02) these formations were very succesfull. However in latest versions these tactics seem to NEVER work, maybe because they were obsolete by modern football as well. (however let's not forget that Brazil won it's last WC base on a 3-5-2) At this version (FM13) a formation that includes a SW,2 DC and 2 WB seems to be working great. However there are too few players that can play SW or WB. (but the problem is most with sweepers). That is in contrast with real life, as almost every player that plays the role of cover central defender could play sweeper. For example why can't Pique play sweeper as a natural position? Does anyone doubt thet he would play there or in a Libero position very easily?Or Rio Ferdinand? Examples are hundrends. Same thing also happens with Wingbacks. I hope in next versions SI will improve this. What do you think?
