    Rusherbande uses it, is 117/120 for the month was 40/40 no 1 spot first 2 weekends but had a 37/40 last weekend.

    He uses 50/50 o, 50/50/50 ff 50/50/50 c no instructions

    Occassionaly switches to the 41212 if chasig a game but 90% is played 4231


    Dont think rocky is using it this year his tacs and cts last year were

    SBWA and cut passing lanes on his CDMs and FBs.

    Get behind on striker.

    65 40

    56 63 47

    60 65 30

    I was playing with this team:

    Ederson
    Dani alves IF maicon David luiz IF marçal
    If Luiz gustavo Fabinho
    Raffael IF Talisca Giuliano
    IF love

    Put the Gelson Martins and Filipe anderson in the second half as Wide CAMs.

    Now up to this:

    Buffon
    Florenzi Manolas koulibaly Lukaku
    Nain IF Matuidi
    Mertens Dybala hamsik
    Higuain.

    And ffs i didn't feel a big diference, this game *****

    Why would you expect to feel a difference ?

    Buffon is pants hando is a million.times better.
    The def isnt really an upgrade.
    Fabinho.is quite possibly the best cdm in the game imo and any form of matuidi is trash.

    If tallisca is an absolute beast as is if live that 5 star wrong foot.

    Dybala at ccam and hamsik wide ?

    Imo youve pretty much went sideways rather than a major upgrade.

    I'm planning to get this team:

    Gea
    Walker - Bailly - Boateng - Alaba
    Paulinho - Vidal
    Martial - R. Costa - Messi (Hero)
    Cr7

    Do you guys have any thoughts on my team? Any suggestions to what I can change? I'm also planning to get prime Okocha when he comes out. My midfield will then look like this:

    R. Costa - Vidal
    Martial - Messi - Okocha

    Thoughts?

    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!

    Remzy CT and instructions for your 4-3-2-1??

    50/50/org
    30/75/30/org
    60/50/30/offside trap

    LF, ST, RF: Stay central
    CCM: Stay back
    LB, RB: Always overlap

    For the people that have been requesting a more direct play CT and instructions. Ive tryed a few but honestly i cant get it to work. Its probably me, i just cant play that playstyle nor do i think the formation is good for it.
    In the end if you get the ball up quick your striker and central CAM will get isolated vs 4-5 defenders. You just cant ping-pong your way through like if you play 41212(2) and have 3 attackers that stay upfront.

    It’s a good guide, the only thing that puts me off the the requirements for the CAM’s. I would be using Ozil and Firmino.

    I may well give this a try as I like the defensive stability of having2 CDM’s. I take it, the settings from the first post are still the best and what you use?

    You can easily attack fast with 4231 1.

    Hi @Footballmadness

    Nice team you got here.
    Mine is currently:
    Lacazette
    Jesus - KDB - Rashford
    Bakayoko - Gundogan
    Rose - Azpi - Bailly - Walker
    Ederson OTW

    But planning on getting something close to yours by adding Tolisso OTW and Pogba in the middle and Alaba on LeftBack.
    My dream would be:
    Aguero
    Dybala - KDB - Jesus IF
    Nainggolan - Pogba
    Alex Sandro - ?? - Bailly - Walker
    De Gea

    I tried to put that team together but can't find a way ... they don't get along with the good chemistey :'(

    @Chalmo very nice dream team you got there.

    honestly though.. you would need a more defensive CDM i think, as pogba does not defend and radja goes attack quiet often - i had him before. but other than that, great team

    @Footballmadness
    Well I'll focus on getting this Tolisso + Alaba first, so that would be:
    Lacazette
    Jesus - KDB - Rashford
    Tolisso OTW - Bakayoko
    Alaba - Azpi - Bailly - Walker
    Ederson OTW

    And then we'll see where to go. I don't have millions so ... ^^'

    I've got a dilemma. I've just come back to this formation after playing 433 variants forna while.

    My team is

    Suarez
    Prime Rui - Messi - Baby del piero
    Baby gullit - baby Vieira

    Gullit is absolutely amazing, my favourite player by far but while he was really useful as a cm in a flat 3, I can't help but feel he's wasted a little at cdm but he doesn't have the pace for an outside cam.

    Should I sell him and get say petit or someone, or move Messi to rcam (where I feel HE is wasted) and play gullit as ccam.

    Thanks in advance and love the guide btw. Real eye opener playing without player instructions.

    Thoughts on this cheap team?

    IF Martinez
    Almiron - David Villa - Rodrigo
    Herrera - Saul
    Kolasinac - Rojo - Gimenez - Vrsaljko
    Rulli

    move gullit to rui spot. Sell dp and get SBC one and use rui.

    Really? I wasn't expecting that. Firstly, surely gullit is too slow at 80 pace for outside cam? Secondly, why would I bin rui for del piero? Costa is much more flexible imo. Can play anywhere from cm through to cf

    Edit didn't mean that to sound so aggressive but could you explain your reasoning please.

    Tbh id bin messi put gullit ccam rui one side del piero the other or nust use gullit at cdm if using no pi be surprised how often 1 cdm steps forward why I have mario and marxhisio as mine as both can actually shoot.

    Problem is I love Messi. You're right though, gullit needs to be ccam. Petit it is for cdm then

    Martinez is amazing and Almiron is also very, very good, I went the Giovinco, Serie A route

    Well I sold del piero, bought middle petit and stuck gullit in ccam. Not enjoying him at all. Too clunky, I def like my ccam nimble and agile. Upgraded my defence too so will need to persevere with ruud up there till I can afford del piero again.

    Buffon isn't a problem but i'll try Handanovic, everyone tell me this.

    Agreed with Matuidi he's awful, Fabinho is a great CDM but his long or finesse shots isn't goods.

    hamsik is a Loan player, he'll be replaced for Gomez tomorrow.

    A team 600k more expensive isn't a upgrade?
