    @Samy Very nice. Not enough coins for Neuer I see. Still amazing team. Lovely. If you want I can add it to the first post with the other Community Teams?

    :smiley:
    Of course you can...anyway it was your suggestion
    About Neuer...i will have him soon, but heard good things about Fährmann so i wanted to test him...Neuer is next on my list :wink:

    So just tried the team and it's plaing very very good. First game first rage quit at 2-0 in 20 min. Second was a lost in the last minute but incredible lag...next 3 games win win win. The only problem i can see with it it's the lag....at least seams to affect only me ... It's really playing very nice... Now looking for a second team... from Bundes, Ligue 1, Seria A and BBVA. Any suggestions? :blush:

    Thoughts and changes? Is Bellarabi a good RF choice?
    80K Budget

    @000BMM I really like that team. Midfield looks so good. Changes I would make are picking Muller over Javier Hernandez. Lots of people were really positive about Muller at that position. Besides I would go with Alex Sandro over Evra. Maybe you could get Miranda and Manolas as your CBs and start saving for Chiellini and Buffon?

    Bellerabi looks like a really good RF. Just wish he had a better weak foot or just was left footed. :lol:

    Thanks ill look to make those changes

    I'll second that! I had to choose between a few players to strengthen my Bundesliga version, and I made a great choice. Surprised he isn't more expensive.

    I will answer all your questions when I wake up. Just got home from the PSV - Wolfsburg game (solid 2-0 win) and it is 1 AM now so I am off to bed.

    Really enjoying the formation since i started using it after reading the guide, having those 3 forwards constantly ready to make runs across the back line is lethal. Only problem i'm having is i can't get any CCM to stay back at all, tried h/h, m/h, l/h, m/m. It's not a huge deal as i naturally conceded a lot with my main 4231 anyway, i just now have the option to score and create a lot more.

    Hey mate, great guide there. Loved the 4321 already in 15, but had problems with it this year. Now I am back to it thanks to your guide! Can you have a look at my current squad if I can make any upgrades right now, have 15k. Wanting to swap hernanes with marchisio and chiellini with one of the CB. Thanks a lot!

    LefaZe, That`s almost my team , atm I have Parolo instead of Nain, cant afford Sandro have Ghoulam & Rudiger instead of Caceres - yes I like Hernanes but as a cam - he is not hard working enough. Front 3 are good. Yes your upgrades are the best prob. How is your GK?, I have Perin who is good
  • I really dont care about the GK at the moment. He is pretty solid, makes great saves, but the game after he is rubbish. So like all the other GKs I think ;)
    Hernanes is really not working in this position and I dont know about Perisic and Jovetic.

    @xciljw...Great guide. Tried it but I am going to give 433-5 a try. I feel the formation a little cramped .

    @Xtc Not everybody will like the formation. Good luck trying the false 9. Hopefully you will do better with that formation then I did. :)

    Really want to give this formation a try after reading this great guide @xciljw! Great video to show it in action as well.

    Running low on coins atm the min as almost fully invested in IF trading.

    Any chance you could make me a nice team for 30k on X1 please?

    Prefer all links to be at least orange so happy with single league/nation.

    Haven't tried La Liga or Bundesliga from the big leagues yet so have a preference to one of them if you are going single league.

    Thanks.

    @Satan the Angel Thanks a lot! Came up with the following, which is just under 30k.

    Hey mate, I followed you guide last year to great success. Another great guide! Was wondering if you minded making me a team for 60k? Would be much appreciated.

    Lovely to see people that tried my guide last year are willing to give it a go this year as well. Thanks! I made the following for you. Hope you like it!

    Fits in the budget (Xbox One prices, though it has a buffer in case you are on playstation). Hope you like it!

    @Samy Lovely that you are satisfied with the way the formation is working out for you. What is the budget you have for this second team? I like the team from @Bigmickey a lot, though it is it the question if it fits the budget and maybe it can be improved if your budget is higher. So it is all depending on that.

    :smile: Thanks for the squad...if i didn't thank you before...
    About the new one....i kind of have some IF to sell and provide some money for any squads...for now i have players from Seria A, Bundes, Ligue 1 and BBVA...and if i sell all the IF for now i am not able to have Ronaldo....but in rest i could manage to trade to the second best team you can think of except the players from the first squad (using them).
    Thanks

    @Ravz9 @MaestroPirlo21 Seem to be many people that like Muller as striker in this formation. Have not used him myself. Consider getting him myself now once one of my investments sold. :#

    @CraigFWba Yeah the CCM staying back is a serious issue. But it is not a problem that you will find just in this formation, it is the CM (or CDM) position in general in the formations in which these players are pushing up the field way too far, even though you tell them to stay back. Great to hear you are enjoying the formation!

    @LefaZe Thank you! Not many changes you can make with 15k. I would personally take Hernanes out, change Nainggolan to RCM and get Felipe Melo or Khedira (you can decide who, Melo obviously better allround) to play CCM. Rest is excellent for now, as 15k does not allow you to upgrade that much. Team looks solid!

    Read your concerns on Perisic and Jovetic. Both should be fine. If you don't like either of them you can go with Felipe Anderson to replace Perisic and get Higuain or Morata as your striker.

    Think you did. Just removed a part of the conversation we had before. So for the second best team I came up with the following:

    Thanks a lot man ;) I will probably try De Rossi, as I already got him. I just picked Perisic, because NIF Felipe Anderson was wy too expensive, due to his IF this week. Will get him once the price dropped back to normal.

  • really like this formation, won 2 online Draft and smash in Div4 and goldcup so far, I find the middle CM is most important, ping pong pass is the key to open up the middle

    @siavash777 Didn't know whether you were playing PS or Xbox. In case you are PS you can downgrade to NIF Lamela if you won't make it:
