Is there any formation where the CAM is the most important player?

    Either false 9 (not actualy a CAM) or any with two attackers with a cam coming from behind (41212 for example). I score lots of goals with cams in that formation

    I will give those a shot, I am playing with 41212 (2) and rarely score with my cam, he assist a lot tho.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    In 433(4), my cam is usually my second highest goalscorer, and the player with most assists. Arguably the most central player. Make sure you put him on 'Stay forward'

    Ever since I've switched to a 4-3-3 (2), I've played so much better. In my experience, CAMs aren't very effective in this game. They never seem to be in the right place, and I always found myself having to force the ball to them.

    That and 4231-2. I use TOTS Griez and TOTS Muller. Played a couple games with Griez last night and his ability to create space and basically "do it all" was fantastic. Didn't score as much as I would have liked, missed 5-6 really easy ops, but i'll give it a little time yet.

    TOTS Muller is pure insanity. The price of his card is an absolute joke. 7 goals in 5 games last night, couple assists. Just one of those players that is always in the right spot and just fights his way through everything. There isn't another card in the game like him.

    I find the majority of goals in 4-2-3-1 come from the central CAM and striker. Using Ibra behind Kluivert at the moment and he's involved in every attack.

    41212(2) for me.

    My CAM has more goals than my strikers

    One of the reasons why I am asking is because of Ibra, wanna try him behind my strikers. Thanks mate.

    Do you play more directly or possession man?

    no doubt 4231 and 4231(2), where the CAM is fundamentally a second striker

    CAM-converted strikers work very well in those formations (especially strikers with good long shots and dribbling stats)

    4231 is my favourite formation this year, and I generally play it with a target man upfront and a CAM running the show (and scoring as many as, or more than, the striker)

    A few duos I have used:

    Gullit CAM - Van Basten

    Stoichkov CAM - TOTS Slimani

    TOTS Griezman - TOTS Aduriz (well to be honest I have not tried them yet, gonna buy today or tomorrow ...)

    Bojan CAM - Lukaku

    Dybala CAM - Higuain

    The CAM seems to be involved a lot in both the variants of 4231 for me....and also I'm interested to know who your CAM is :)

    Thanks a lot man, very nice post. Do you use any custom tactics and instructions on 4231. I saw the Liam guide and it seems a very solid way to start using the formation.

    Atm is tots Cardona (best discard I have tried this year, by far), but I will buy TOTS griezmann by the end of the week and TOTS or 96 Zlatan next week. 4231 is the first formation I will try, I hope it works.

    4312 CAM is basically a CF.

    Will score loads of goals here

    I recently started using that guide ("Liam9lfc's 4-2-3-1 Guide ft. Sokker14" in the guides section, in case anyone else is interested) and I must say the custom tactics suggested there worked really very well for me

    I like 4231 (2)

    And 41212 or 4411

    As several others have said either of the 4231 variants.

    Alot of one touch and possession.

    NIF Eriksen and Mertens are my cams and they score a lot! Mertens usually gets in behind and Eriksen it's a case of just shooting from outside the box and it usually goes in

    this, 433(4)- CAM contributes to most goals in the team in some sort of way. Always my fav player in that formation as he runs the show

    I'd always prefer him behind the strikers. Very useful too having a 6'5 guy sitting there knocking defenders about and winning headers against big midfielders.

    Well if it is Ibra, then the ideal position for him is CAM in 4312
