If coins were not an issue what would people consider the best back 5 to be?

Thinking about changing to the below potentially but was wondering if there's anything better?

    @Sanchezzzz @hoban95 @therealmerk33 is TOTS Alonso actually better than TOTY Marcelo? From what I've read on the forum it's that TOTS Alonso is similar to the SIF. Didn't even consider him after reading that!

    @therealmerk33 I have Maldini at the moment and he's great but would a H/M and M/H work as I feel the chosen thing is to go with a M/M when playing a H/M so the gap left isn't too big. That goes with @Sercs suggestions of using Rio who I've seen been used alongside TOTY Ramos

    @Diggy i do have him at the moment and I really like him but everyone raving about Ramos is making me try him and having both him and Ramos in a team seems like a recipe for disaster as they're both H/M

    Legend defenders get animations that others don't Franz more so & by you owning him you know what I mean

    As soon as I read that this flashed through my mind
    De Gea
    Alonso, Luiz, Rio, ramos, Carvajal

    But on reflection if I could I would...
    De gea
    Alonso, ramos, luiz, dani alves

    Yeah people can say Azpil has 99 jumping with chem style, but 99 jumping Ronaldo beats 99 jumping Azpil.. Need some height. I might be wrong but just the amount of headers from GKs he will lose would be a lot I bet.

    I'd go with tots Alex Sandro once he'll be out, Tots David Luiz, a legend cb with high defensive wr, or Maldini, tots Walker.

    Seems like there's a lot of good choice with defenders now that TOTS is out. I came to the thread wanting to stick to 4 at the back and I've never played 5 at the back but how would this play?!

    I play 4312 at the moment but i'm not that great defensively so would this give me more solidarity and if played on attacking then Marcelo and Alves should be great? Not sure about Ramos and Luiz's workrates as the LCB and RCB though?

    Best back 5 in the game IMO:

    Marcelo - Ramos - Rio - Valencia
    DDG

    (Highest versions of those cards)

    @Sercs Alonso is a special card trust me, 100% the best left back on the game, the challenge will come from Alex Sandro's TOTS but it will be close!

    @ScouserChris this is why i've always avoided 5 atb because of the stigma associated with it! Not decided anyway, it does look like a crazy team though

    I didnt make any comment on the LB bud, both cards look amazing but havent used any either. TOTS Sandro is who ill be going for personally though

    Don't know if I'd play two holding mids in a back 5, Kante should do well enough on his own, I'd maybe grab ADP and drop Gullit back in place of Vieira but otherwise insane

    I will be probably due to Chiellini because Azpi has dissapointed me!

    @therealmerk33 I have ADP at the moment as my CAM in 4312 and Gullit as LCM but i feel as if i waste Gullit at LCM but ADP is amazing so would be hard to sell him! Thanks for saying it looks good though! If i post it on the forum i'm sure i'd get a lot of hate for saying it's a filthy team if i make it haha

    @coatsy2008 cheers. Reckon Ramos and Luiz would work with those workmates? That's why i thought having two CM's with M/H could compensate.

    TOTS Alonso - Blanc- Ferdinand- TOTS Walker


    Gks are all horrendous this year. Butland lets in as many goals for me as TOTS LLoris so cant imagine TOTS de Gea is much better. You will concede less goals by taking the 500k for De Gea and sppending it on a world class cdm
