Fell into a bit of a slump over the past week, so I decided to take a break from FUT and try out various different formation/tactical/instruction combinations in order to find a new rhythm.
Ended up really (really) enjoying 4-2-3-1 narrow with my full-backs on 'Always Overlap'. Would that be suicidal in FUT though, a gamemode played at high speed and a huge focus on exploiting space on counters? I felt comfortable defending in Division 1 in Online Seasons.
If it makes any difference, the set-up I was using was as follows:
ST: Drift Wide, Get In Behind
CAMs: Free Roam
CDMs: Stay Back
RB/LB: Always Overlap
Martial - Mata - Mkhitaryan
Herrera - Pogba
Shaw - Smalling - Bailly - Valencia
