    I've gone back to Gomez and I prefer him in a 2 striker formation with PEA getting to the byline and getting the crosses in for him.

    Not overly convinced with Keita as CAM so might give Stindl a try as mentioned above.

    Need some help guys:

    Looking for 2 teams - one around the 87 Dzeko and then one could be around any target man you would recommend.

    Got a budget of about 230k on PS4 and going to use the 433(2) formation.

    Cheers for any suggestions you've got guys in advance :)

    Quick question with receiving passes and shielding with your TM ... do you hold L2/LT as you receive the ball ,before or after?
    I hadn't given it much thought but noticed in my gameplay a sort of randomness when I'm getting it.
    Sometimes I'm insta-pushed off the ball before getting it under control(strange given the high strength stats), sometimes no attempt is made to hold off the defender behind me...and sometimes he's holding off 2 players with ease?!
    I did notice I tend to hold L2/LT before receiving the pass out of habit....is this wrong?

    Great to see this thread active again!

    It's a while since I've been in here and it's even longer since I used a target man tactic/team also.

    What would you guys say are the best formations for this play style since the recent updates? :smile:

    For me its always 4231(2).
    Basically for target-man you want 1 striker formations with wingers (RM/LM or RW/LW).

    @Feurez @Andy87 I have way more than 1M coins, and this is my Bundesliga squad:

    35UVpeY.png

    Best players for each position in the league for me, I have other squad but If I have the coins I may upgrade Robben to his SIF, hope Gomez gets an IF, and thats it. I use Rofriguez instead of Alaba only for his longthrow :p

    Do you use any player instructions or custom tactics? I might change to 4231 (2) because I don't really seem to be able to work with 433 formations.

    @DSD27 Think I saw your custom instructions and general set up on the previous page man - are those still working for you after the recent patch then? :)

    ST - Stay central, get in behind
    CAM: get into the box for crosses, come back when defending, free roam
    LM (depends on the player): Cut inside, stay at the edge of the box
    RM (depends on the player): Cut inside, get in behind
    second CDM: cut passing lines
    Defensive CDM: Stay back
    medium-medium full back or the Full back with more pace and stamina: always overlap
    rest default

    None, Tele Broadcast 17 3. Pro players advise it for years, its the best combination of more size area but still having good angles.

    Is anyone else kind of excited about a potential TOTS Dost... ?

    Up to 80 dribble on the last IF....his shooting and heading were already OP

    No but I am for potential TOTS Mitroglou.. Same shooting and heading, better dribbling and pace, 5 stars weak foot.

    amazing stuff. :) but for me he is too short. he will score headers like that, he was alone, but jump in physical challange between the CBs will will be a problem.

    Yeah, he is far from an optimal targetman but I love the guy

    True Mitrog will be much more mobile but Dost will feel stronger in game and he will win every header due to his height.
