I need to fill the ST position and the 3 CAMs and have the following players at my disposal.

TOTY Messi
96 Neymar
SBC Suarez
POTM Ibra
Nedved

I've been through so many different combinations my head hurts, lol. I would appreciate some opinions. I have 800k (plus sale proceeds from any of the above) if you think someone else is needed. Chem isn't a huge issue as I would switch in game and sub on if needed.

Thanks.

    Makes logical sense, but can't help feel that messi and neymar will be wasted in the wide cam positions.

    Suarez - ST
    Messi - LCAM (Across the box on that left foot is glorious)
    Neymar - RCAM

    Get Bergkamp at CCAM

    selling nedved+800k will take you to ronaldo. Another option would be Best over Ronaldo

    Doesnt' make sense to put TOTY Suarez or Ibra out there either.

    However, i'd relegate POTM Ibra to the bench. I'd start in another formation, get chem, switch in game. I would play TOTY Suarez at ST, TOTY Messi at CAM, 96 Neymar at RCAM and I would pick up Griez for LCAM (the 90 if you can). I'd get TOTT Case for sure. He will help links things up. Alba as well.

    If you need to downgrade, i'd downgrade the 96 Neymar to the 94. Like you said, might be wasting outside. They are more assist roles then primary goalscorer roles. You have TOTY Suarez and TOTY Messi running the middle, so enough said.

    Downgrade gives you another ~300k. Now you are at 1.1m. 90 Griez and TOTT Case easy.

    Good shout. I liked him at cam in a 4312 a few months back. Found him better than ADP.

    It's SBC Suarez I have - would be nice to have the TOTY version!

    I'm pretty settled on my defence and CDMs. Rolling with MOTM kante and TOTT Vidal (untradeable) so can't see me going with TOTT Case.

    I did use 90 Griez briefly . Must admit I wasn't that impressed with him - at LST anyways.

    Start with a 4-3-3 and switch to 4-2-3-1 after start of game. Use Messi and Neymar as the wife cam's. I'd convert Suarez to a cam and play him in the middle.
    Only thing to consider then is which CDM's you want. Ideally these fellas need to be tall and tough.

    Depends if you care about chemistry?
    If not, use Ibra. A tall strong striker is great in the 4-2-3-1 formation.
    If you do care about chemistry, use your coins to buy a legend like Kluivert, Crespo or Weah.

    I also recommend Rijkaard for cdm.

    This- I'd probably go Best out wide but Ron works great too.

    What instructions do you guys have for outside mids in this formation? I love the formation and have had great success with it but I feel my outside mids really dont get involved

    433 or 4321 and drop the last two. Then actually just use the damn formation you're starting with!

    Why is changing formation such a problem?
