I was thinking as there are four variations of the 4-4-2 that I would personally use:

Flat 4-4-2:

Advanced 4-4-2:

Deeper DM 4-4-2:

4-1-1-2-2?
View attachment 137632

Which of these offers the most balance in both defence and attack, particularly the last two which I favour due to DM being most of the defensive midfielders favoured position. With the last two does it make a difference/improvement if the DM is directly behind the central midfielder or deeper to either side of him?

Thanks.

I can't see the pictures so not sure which ones you chose...What about the 4-4-2 diamond? With wingers or CM's? Or what about a 4-4-2 with two DM's and two AM's?

Flat 4-4-2 is the most balanced one, but really boring to watch. I prefer 4-2-2-2 one because you can set the wingers to inside forward

the one with 2 pushed up wingers playing as inside forwards by a long shot - having one of the CM's as some form of defensive-minded one.
