Hey guys,

I’ve got some good news for you; 433(2) is back and better than ever!
Last year I’ve used it for a long time and even wrote a guide about, which gave me some good responses. Unfortunately the patches made me change to 433(4) to stay competitive in div 1. Not that 433(2) wasn’t good, but 433(4) was just better for me.
This year it’s the other way around, the gameplay has changed a lot which favors passing play.

I’m doing really well with this formation, current set of CT’s and instructions, so I’m pretty confident that I will win div 1 with my budget team soon.

I’m not going into depth too much. I think that if you understand which players to use and apply my CT’s and instructions you should do well. If not, you can always ask about anything in the thread and I will respond with advice.
I will post some gameplay as soon as I reach div 1, probably about a week from now.

So what players should you use?

GK
They seem to be pretty solid this year, so I think picking the GK is not so important, I advice you not to spend many coins unless you have them of course.
The only 2 things to look out for is height and long throw. These attributes will come in very handy.
Expensive - Neuer, De Gea, Courtois
Cheap - José Reina, Oblak, Handanovic

CB’s
Strength and height is most important. I also look for decent passing stats because these guys will start most of the attacks. Pace is not that important anymore imo.
Expensive - Ramos, Boateng, Godin, Hummels, Chiellini, Bonucci
Cheap - Sokratis, Toprak, Gonzalo Rodriguez, Bailly

LB + RB
I go for strength and passing this year. Pace is less important because I have them on stay back.
Expensive - Marcelo, Jordi Alba, Alaba, Dani Alves, Juanfran
Cheap - Gaya, De Marcos, Ansaldi, Hector, Coleman

CDM
Very important player, he will be there sitting in front of your defense. With the stay back function working better this year, he won’t bomb up forward like last year. I use him to recycle possession and as a lock on my defense. He needs to be a decent defender and a good passer.
Expensive - Busquets, Casemiro, Xabi Alonso, Matic
Cheap - De Rossi, Iborra, Schneiderlin, Rode

CM’s
This is up to you. I suggest 2 playmakers, so your attacking creativity can be big. Right now I don't have the coins for good playmakers, so I’m using 2 good allrounders. Look for good dribbling, passing and finishing. They will pop up in the box a lot to finish.
Expensive - Iniesta, De Bruyne, Modric, Vidal, Marchisio
Cheap - Eriksen, Banega, Borja Valero, Divadi

LW + RW
Dribbling, passing and finishing are crucial. Pace, skills and weak foot come next.
These guys are very important, because they need to make all the action on the wing.
Expensive - Ronaldo, Neymar, Messi, Robben, Reus, Hazard
Cheap - Salah, Mertens, Perisic, Bellarabi, Dembele

ST
A striker that can pass is crucial here, also dribbling and finishing is important to me. You don't have to look for a typical target man, you can get away with a small striker as well like Eder or Jovetic.
Expensive - Ibrahimovic, Suarez, Lewandowski, Diego Costa
Cheap - Jovetic, Eder, Slimani

    BTW, I know I missed a lot of players. But I haven't use many so far, so I will keep updating the list of players I recommend.

    You could use Remy, 75 short passing ain't that bad.

    Been looking Amrabat has 82 short pass and 1k not bad just saving coins until prices drop. How does the cdm perform with your tactics does he sit deep or bomb forward?

    Last year yes. This year 433(2) > False9 in my opinion. In false 9 the striker is too far away from the goal and that distance was easier to overcome last year.
    For most people these differences are hardly noticeable and False 9 may feel the same as 433(2) with the ST on stay central, target man instructions.

    That's a good option. CDM stays back like he should this year :)

    I agree with the comment about the False 9. I was an avid f9 user last year but I find it really hard to get him anywhere near the goal in this years FUT.

    Actually F9 was my first squad this Fifa. But I stopped using it after 10 games, it feels different. Then I switched to 433(4), which was missing something in defense for me. So I decided to try 433(2) and I didn't look back since, I'm very happy that my favorite formation is back :)

    I am using 433-4 just now and enjoying it but you are right. I feel like a lot of the time I am just hoping that my opponent screws up rather than actually being in control. I might try this out.

    I hear that! It feels like counter football. My opponents are sitting SO deep just waiting to cut off a pass or make a tackle then sprint up the field. And quite frankly, I am trying to do the same.

    41212 wide was working really well for me. Then last night, poof. Gone. Lost 3 in a row. Just couldn't get anyone to move. Went to 4321 just to get a bit more direct, and won a couple. I was creating opportunities, not just countering.

    I have GOT to find that formation that gets the players moving, creating space. I got 4411 tee'd up again, but have this on deck. Remzy's never steered me wrong before :smile:

    Yeah, I get countered HARD sometimes when I use 433-4. Like, it's an extremely high chance of a goal.

    Yeah, I get countered HARD sometimes when I use 433-4. Like, it's an extremely high chance of a goal.

    CDMs on stay back tend to be in position. I've used Asamoah in 41212 wide and he always seemed to be back.

    4321 is working for people because the 3 CMs clog the middle. However, it becomes very 1 dimensional in terms of passing (all horizontal, nothing vertical (in relation to the TV)). It's a real counter attack minded formation.

    41212, 4231(2), 4411 have all given me the width combine withe runs. 433(4) just doesn't feel right to me. So I got 1 team tee'd up on 4411 and another tee'd up now on 433(2).

    I'm gonna give it a go. As much as I hate losing, I do enjoy trying new formations and teams. I think it keeps me focusing, which is why my record when I switch formations is always good for about 10 games, then I stop focusing as much :smiley:

    Iniesta and Modric as the CM's for sure. No one better.
    Busquets as the CDM.

    They're all great, Baselli is a hidden gem this year, and they look to fit your description for this formation as well.

    Good work on the guide, by the way. :)

    He would make more impact as a ST. He is good as a LW ofcourse, but at ST Ronaldo is a real game changer.

    Tried this formation and hated it. Very isolated and rigid. No fluidity going forward at all.

    Looks like a good guide yet again, will have to have a play around with it. Looking at using Diego Costa in a cheap-ish team if you have any suggestions (Diego + about 50k ish). I had limited success with False 9 so hopefully this fills in some of the weaknesses i had with that (such as the CF being too far away from goal to score or slip the wingers in and the wingers being easily marked out of the game).

    Just out of curiosity, are CTs squad specific? IE if I set up your CTs in one squad will the CTs in my other squads change too?

    Baselli is amazing! I will buy Pjanic x Jorginho or Nainggolan?
