    Very nice guide! You play very similar to me, which made me decide to try out your setup. I really enjoyed it, thanks for that. This is the team I'm rocking with:

    Overmars - Kluivert 88 - IF Alessandrini
    Del Piero 92
    Vidal - Nainggolan
    Alaba - Boateng - Manolas - Florenzi
    Fahrmann

    I finished Elite 1 last week, so hopefully can aim for T100 this week with your CT's! The team plays insane btw.

    That is a really nice team! How is kluivert 88? Im thinking to eventually switch out my Ibra for him.
    Loved your 433(2) guide last year, used it for quite some time!

    Nice! I tried 433(2) this year, but I can't get it to work. I keep switching between 4231, 442 and 41212(2) depending on my opponent.

    I've got the 88 Kluivert, because he's a bit stronger than the baby one. Best striker I have used so far, can do anything plus he's pretty fast. He has been unreal for me, 122 goals in 104 games, in div 1 and WL (elite 1). So that says it all :)

    PI :
    ST - stay central
    CCAM - stay forward
    LCAM/RCAM stay forward - for crosing get into box.
    LCDM/RCDM SBWA/CPL

    Bet you're a joy to play against

    Depends on your custom tactics. But generally if you are playing direct with not so many passes and you want your wide cam´s to be more offensive put the on stay forward.

    If you generally want them more involved in the build up so they have the ball more put them on free roam.

    Sounds good. ive used 87 crespo and he was pretty good but im way too used to play with a stronger and taller striker so went back to Ibra. But Kluivert migth actually be the guy to finally replace Ibra for me. Gonna try and pick him up soon!

    Hey @Dronegan
    Would you mind take a look at my comment the page before when you have time? Would very appreciate it.

    Since then, I'm thinking of Tolisso OTW and Alaba instead of Gundogan/Rose but will have to change formation at start :/

    Hi @Dronegan
    Pretty nice guide here. I enjoyed reading it.
    Currently on a trip but can't stop lurking the forum and think about what formation should I use with which players, etc.
    So when I come back, I will definately give a try to your formation and tactics.
    Although, I have few interrogations:

    1- What are the chem style you recommend for each post and why? Is it better to boost the stats that are already good or to improve where he struggles a bit?

    2- Workrates for CB: Does it matter or not? From what I read it looks like there's 2 school. I'm asking this because I will give a try to Azpilicueta with Bailly?

    3- What do you think of my team and what are the next position to improve in priority order? Knowing that I will probably focus on getting Pogba.

    Lacazette
    Rashford - De Bruyne - Jesus
    Bakayoko - Gundogan
    Rose - Azpilicueta - Bailly - Walker
    Ederson OTW

    Also my subs are: Rojo, Rudiguer, Aurier, Can, Dembele (CM Tottenham), Sané, Sterling.
    Thinking about trying Herrera too.

    Thanks for answering me.

    Regards,
    Chalmo


    Hey and thanks! I dont use specifik chemistry card on any position. It really depends on what the player card needs boosting in. But generally for attacking players i look to get pace and shooting first. For midfielders Pace and Physical and for defenders Pace and Physical in some cases also defending.

    2. Ive used H/M CB´s and i dont feel they wander out of positon at all. So for me personally i dont look at workrates when it comes to my CB´s. With that said i would never use Azpilicueta since he is way to short and weak for being a centerback.

    3. I think you have a good team. My first priority would be to get a better player instead of Rashford and also switch in. Rudiger for Azpilicueta. Then Maybe go for Courtois or De Gea.

    Thanks @Dronegan.

    Then what do you think of IF Mustafi?
    Rudiguer Bailly will do the job while I focus on other position I guess.

    About Ederson, I wait for a boost so I can sell him and buy De Gea instead.

    What do you think of adding alaba and Tolisso OTW? (If I do that, I will have to change formation in game and I'm not a big fan either).

    Last question: who would you see instead of Rashford then? I really like him actually (and I packed him at the very beginning some its about Bromance too you know).

    Thanks a lot for answering me.

    Regrds.

    Been testing some CTs and I feel like this formation work so much better when you put chance creation on Free Form, otherwise the CAMs feel so static and the striker feels isolated.

    Anyone else noticed this too?

    It helps to put the wide CAM`s on free roam. The reason i dont like to put the chance creaton on free form is to avoid CDM´s switching position with my CAM´s. This is less of an issue if you have a stacked team and CDM´s that can score as easy as they defend.

    I got Vidal and Nain as CDMs so I don’t really mind. I use them in my attack anyways. Will try CAMs on Free Roam eventho I rather play without instructions.

    Doing well in wl still having trouble with striker scoring feels like nothing more than there to hold up and bring others into play.

    A lack of that great all rounder in serie a I guess.

    Even if higgy doesnt quite cut it belotti seems the best option still.

    Just bought my team and I'm delighted with the balance of it. It feels strong in defence and there's plenty of passing opportunities in attack.

    The left hand side seems to provide the assists with PEA and Crespo getting on the end of crosses from Sandro and Dybala.

    Im back playing these formation. Couldn’t get on with 433 (2). I’m going to purchase boateng.

    The set up with be

    Fahrmann.
    Florenzi manolas boateng alaba
    Nain Vidal
    IF broz
    Gomez scream perisic
    Higgy

    I may be able to get enough for a cheap icon. Possibly replace broz or Gomez.

    He's playing better than I thought, I don't have coins for Mertens so figured I'd try him. His pace is good enough for wide CAM and his other stats are all good too. Pretty allrounded player. Well worth the coins imo

    Yea I was thinking about having him on the bench as a sub for Gomez. I recommend picking up scream perisic when u have the coins. Great card and will be on chem.

    Been playing 4321 lately, somehow the 4231 got a bit stale to me.

    Currently using 4321, playing a very anti-meta possession based game with fullbacks on overlap. Really enjoying it!
