Hey the last game I played we played a 343, but the midfielders bunched up. But If you have someone between mids and defense I like it

I think when they say diamond 4-4-2, they're saying the deffense and midfield are setup in a diamond. Like sweeper behind stopper, and the outside backs inbetween the two, but on the outside. Same thing goes for the midfield. Defensive mid behind all, offensive ahead of all, and the two outside middies playing inbetween them, but on the outside. It's hard to explain.

I think that it depends on your teams playing style and what you are trying to accomplish.
you can have either more attack minded formations or more defensive ones
it just depends on your team and what you want to do. is it score as many goals as you can? or is it score one and lock the game? its up to you

I think that you should always keep attacking and keep trying to score more goals, if you just lock up the game and try to win 1-0 then the soccer is really boring
