The 4-4-2 formation

The tried and trusted 4-4-2 formation is the most common formation seen in the UK and one that most players have been brought up with. The solid four at the back and the four midfield players are a firm favorite, especially with UK coaches as it is a safe and trusted way of setting up your team.

A successful 4-4-2 formation is helped by good quality wingers with pace. This is a given in the professional game but not so available at grassroots level. However, there are some very good tips to get the best out of your players in this set up and to get the team all thinking on the same wavelength when defending and pressing. A well organized team at grassroots level creates a massive advantage in any fixture.
