I'm looking for a new formation and am intrigued by the 4-5-1. I've played 3 games with it so far winning two and badly losing 1. Anybody else use it and have any tips on how to maximize it?

    I used it and liked it. The CAMs were everything for me, the ST was more of a guy who held up play and it was weird to see that the outside mids were very defensive. You definitely want to have a solid CM as well.

    I noticed that in my few games with it as well. I have Cuadrado on the right and it seemed like he spent more time in the middle than out wide. It definitely plays different than most formations

    IF Gameiro
    Griezmann Iniesta
    Carrasco Busquets Williams
    Luis Godin Pique De Marcos

    Was what I used.

    I don't have nearly the budget for that. I've got:

    Gabbiadini
    Banega Eder
    IF Perotti Parolo Cuadrado
    Vangioni Bonucci Barzagli Florenzi
    Perin

    That still looks very good IMO.

    Thanks. Been a bit hit or miss so far but I put that to getting used to the formation. We'll see how long I stick with it.
