I just explained the differences of the positions names. Read carefully. Iniesta was a RM/RAM, KAKA was a RAM/CAM/LAM, Donovan was RM/LM/CAM/RAM/LAM. It depends on how the formation is first set up. In a empty bucket 4-4-2 you generally see acronyms LM and RM, etc...


Formations are not tactics.

They aren't? Do explain? Having a formation is apart of the overall tactical scheme.

tactics: The science and art of disposing and maneuvering forces in combat. i.e. tactical columns which are formations.

Setting up a 4-5-1 "formation" to stifle an opposing teams attack is apart of the overall tactical plan.

"You see" these acronyms in FIFA and that's about it. And any time they are listed in some sort of box score/match report it's up to the person writing it how they want to label these positions. And they usually don't get nearly as specific as FIFA does, M or RM is about all you're going to get for someone playing on the rght, for eample. But these are referred to in common parlance as "wingers," and pretty much any player who plays on the wings will be called a "winger." This isn't gridiron, there are no playbooks or trading cards or detailed stats.

[And by the way Iniesta would never be listed as a "RM" because he traditionally speaking he has played as a central midfielder in Barcelona's 4-3-3 (he'd only play as one of the front three when someone was missing), although this year Enrique has been experimenting with different formations.]
