My Squad-Building Addiction (Taking Requests)

Hello all, I’ve been playing FUT since FIFA 12 and have been a member of these forums for about 5 years now. In that time, I’ve found that despite being a D1 player I enjoy squad-building more than actually playing the game, particularly FUT14 & 15 which were absolute garbage. Squad-building is more restrictive than it used to be, every year I quietly hope for the return of the 1.5 nation links but I’ve settled for the scrapping of those awful formation links EA introduced a couple of years ago that served more to destroy hybrids rather than create them.

My addiction has had a direct impact on my club, as I take a less popular approach to Ultimate Team. I don’t aim for Ronaldo for example; nor Messi, Neymar or any premium player. For the price of Ronaldo I can buy dozens of special cards with link for all sorts of hybrids. I currently have twelve teams (with one variation) with four more in production (two of which are pending the completion of the MLS SBC). Some of these teams are competitive, some are just for fun; I just enjoy using different players.

So there you have it, to add a purpose to this thread other than showing off my teams I’m more than ready to post any player and/or squad reviews as well as offer my services as a squad builder. Hopefully there are others on here who share the same addiction as me.

TL;DR – I have teams.

    This is the team I currently have, feels like its died after 40+ games.

    With WL coming up can someone improve it/change formation I have 200k for changes plus whatever players to get rid of.

    @NeS Sure thing, 3-4-1-2 is very difficult to play with, especially with Cuadrado (H/L Workrates I think) as well as H/H CM's. Any particular formation you'd like to switch to? Also need to know your Console because of price differences.

    Nice teams! I feel the same I love building teams and keep changing it. End up losing so many coins just because 'that looks good', 5 games later lets improve it, then it doesn't work, then I start again. Maybe i should keep all my players like you lol

    I only change my teams when a special card comes out that fits in, it's a lot easier to feed my habit thanks to the Weekend league. I would recommend keeping all your players but my point of view is tainted from being a very obvious hoarder.

    Good Shout. Either that or take a leaf out of the commentator's book with "Main Man Mane" although I've always loved "Big Ben Chimes Again For His Side"

    Felt it was a shame to drop one of Marchisio/Naing, Rooney is there for his M/H Workrate but you're still lacking a true DM so maybe telling one of the other two to Stay Back While Attacking would make you more solid. @NeS

    No worries, Can can act as the defensive one of the trio now:

    Wingers to Drift Wide, Dybala to get in behind, Can to stay back. Depending on your defensive capabilities tell one of your CM's or Fullbacks to stay back as well.

    After over 200 games with his untradeable NIF, I'm glad to welcome SBC Can into one of my main teams.

    Sorry for the delay. If you're willing to put Ibra at LS and you have SBC Kurzawa I'd go with this (Rooney is a placeholder for pretty much any PL CM):

    If you'd rather keep it as it is:

    Please double-check the stamina on TOTGS Kimmich though, Futhead said 84 but I have him and I'm not sure I believe that. @Viggo 007

    Love those squads, however I like symmetry a lot :) so I went with this even though Gundo has 76 stamina. Any suggestion for back 4?

    No worries, I was gonna go the Gundo route myself until I saw the <80 Stamina. I'd go:

    Alaba/IF Hector - Boateng - IF Sokratis - PolishDortmundRBThatICan'tSpell.

    As for the GK, I haven't used Neuer but TOTGS Fahrmann is the best I've used and is far cheaper.

    I've only heard great things about his TOTGS card, but if you love symmetry as much as I love special cards I understand that that might not be an option. :D

    Any ideas? PEA is untradeable, sold my Vidal for 50k profit, will rebuy when he drops..

    In regards to improving it I assume? I've heard nothing but bad things about Robben, I've never used his card on UT, I always use Bayern in non-UT play but I always put Robben in the reserves although that's due to him being one of my least favourite players in world football more than anything else.

    Would recommend trying out IF Dembele in place of him, as well as replacing Muller. SIF Forsberg or even Draxler are far more productive. I can also confirm that TOTGS Fahrmann is well worth it for the upgrade, as previously stated he's the best GK I've used. If you're thinking more along the lines of a new team around IF Auba just let me know.
