    my biggest problem in the moment is, that my crosses go always on the second Post and not in the middle of the box. My LM and RM have make more headers then my targetman :joy:

    Semi assisted crossing, if you're already using that setting, less power :p
    But yeah I also score headers with RM and LM :joy:

    So you already have two teams, why more? Waste of money. Improve those two. You only need two, one plays while the other rests :)

    I've found that the most successful formation for me while using a target man is 532 as long as you have two wing backs who can cross well.

    I've currently got Falcao and Ballotelli up front who are both good in the air and although they're not the tallest they score an unbelievable amount of headers which are assisted by the full backs.

    The benefit is that you can go near or far post with the cross or you can play 1-2s to get in behind the defence.

    You can also do that with 4231(2) with a good heading CAM and instructions.

    I have joined the dark side... lol

    After 2 seasons not being able to get promoted to division 4, I decided to try Werner by advice of a friend. I started scoring tons of goals. With him up font it seems that even the entire team plays better around his pace and runs, its incredible, like a cheat code. This game really builds artound pace. He made tons of assists to my CAM and even scored 2 headers, that's more than Madnzukic did for me in like 40 games. I won the title with all wins.
    Guys playing target-man is such a disadvantage.. you have no counter-attack to punish people who pressure you.

    Agreed. I play with my targetman squad (Dzeko right now) just in DKT. If I'm going seasons or something I have to play with my more pacy team unfortunately. It sucks.

    I manage to play target-man all this years because I'm above average and I can keep possession and dominate most opponents. But I struggle against those opponents who can dominate me, because I don't have counter attack to punish them. i thought a fast RM and LM could be enough for a good counter but it isn't even close to. And this year more people are a ble to apply presure and play passing because it's way easier.
    I conclude.. Target man in 4231(2) probably no more, only 433(2) with fast wingers. 4231(2) with a striker like Werner is btter. And Werner is 180cm, 70 heading and Hawk gives him 87 jumping.

    Last year the target man/crossing playstyle was viable for me at every level.
    My main problems in fifa 18 :

    - Shielding is much worse, my players are getting jumped from behind and very often fouls are not given. Players refusing to shield the ball is also a big issue
    - Crossing changes. In FIFA 17 there were basically 2 different situations for 2 different crosses. Player making his run into the box but is not in position yet = early cross. Player already in position = normal cross. I have not found the equivalent to early crosses to my target man strikers and there are really no normal crosses anymore.
    - This year its usually not enough to score ~2 goals per game. You will often need 3,4,5 or even more. The 2 problems you see above are making it really hard to consistently score alot of goals.

    Let me know if you have the same problems. Sadly Im not really able to try out new changes etc because im struggling with alot of delay, but hopefully will be able to try new things soon.
