Alright guys, whats the most successful formation/tactics to beat united?
In second season with Wolves and always get destroyed! played them in cup twice last season and once this season.

I usually play 4231 with wide wingers or 451 with the wingers as inside forwards.

Any help would be appreciated!
I got sick of being humped by Man U on my Newcastle save [particularly at Old Trafford], so just to spite them i used this formation:

I tweaked it to a 4-3-3-0 but its a fairly versatile tactic. It may seem a bit anti football but if you can find the right way to implement it with your squad its a great tactic for the "impossible" games and you can end up creating more clear cut chances than you would with an attacking formation. I've stolen results at Old Trafford, Etihad, Stamford Bridge, Anfield and even the Bernabeu with it. I swear by it. I would recommend using it sparingly though as it really tires out your players.
m8 what formation did u use with wolves first season plz ive just started save with them
