    I am thinking of using a target man in a 4411, but I am unsure whether to play him ST or CF? There are pro's and cons for both...
    Who would you recommend for around 250k? Looking at probably having Ibra?

    Thanks guys

    Shearer is working well for me if you're on Xbox One. Using him as ST.

    I loved Shearer on Fifa 15, so tempted to give him a go. I assume there are some drawbacks given his low rating?

    Could be a good CF?

    Has anyone used Costa IF 88? He seems a tank!

    I've only used him as ST. Plays better than his rating.

    Narrowed it down to:
    NIF Ibra
    91 Cavani
    88 Costa

    Would anyone add a suggestion?

    Really like that Junuzovic, amazing longshots. Try IF Plattenhardt at LB, he is the best..

    My Gomez team is like this now:

    I have Boateng, I alternate the CBs with the other squad. IF Plattenhardt and IF Schurrle are also on the other squaed. (Cavani)

    I'll give him a shot. And junuzovic is good so far. I know I don't have a true defending cdm but it's working so far.

    If I was to call MOTM Aduriz a donkey it'd be a compliment to him he's that bad

    Futhead now has it also :p
    yeah I already talked about it, its why I like him so much, even better than Lewandowski. With the composure he does stuff with the ball before shooting, like moving it in a better position, shoots calmly and well placed, while strikers with bad composure just immediately rush the shot and most of the times against the gk or off target.

    When you think you're an artist but then Gomez f*cks you up. http://plays.tv/video/5906976060a252c5cd/

    Great movement and touch by the GOAT.

    But that Perisic goal was ridiculous. Wow.

    Been inspired to come back to my beloved target man way of playing.
    Decided after reading to build these two teams with all of the little coins I had.

    First team -
    jTYSGWU.jpg

    And fitness team -
    89L1iWB.jpg

    Any thoughts? Future upgrades needed ?

    Also any advice on cts i would be grateful for,
    I like to play possesion build up, love crossing and heading , like to contain in defence using 2nd man press to charge down their attackers.

    What CTs and instructions do you use @Kip2MyLou ? Just built a team around 88 Benteke and 88 Carrasco for this formation.

    Don't use cts.

    Striker: stay central, get in behind, press back line
    Cam: stay forward I think
    Mids: stay forward and get in behind
    Fullbacks: stay back while attacking

    If I had a defensive midfielder I'd put stay back while attacking also but I like having 2 all around mids especially if they're h/h and good stamina like those 2.

    Does that mean you use offside trap as default?

    To be honest unlike those crazy YouTubers I notice little difference. I definitely prefer a bit more speed and crossing than default though.

    yes, press the backline for mandzukic because he is HH, gomez doesn't need.
    I didn't like Schurrle as well, put TIF Forsberg at LM and Muller CAM, or Reus LM. Get movember gustavo and rodriguez, very important stamina boost and strenght,

    not very agile but he is great for me with Maestro.
    get into the box for crosses, come back when defending, free roam

    I prefer Muller, taller and better heading, also faster.

    I pumped for stindl and got him for 35k!
    Got to say....oh my days!!
    Just the sort of cam for my style...
    he is deceptively brilliant...

    and my god he has a hammer! Only con is 3* skills I guess.
    Big credit to you for the Munich cts tho...they work a dream!
    And instructions are spot on. Although I leave wing backs on default.
    Even the fitness team is doing well....just wish mand didn't have h/h workrates :/
