Currently testing this after doing the Dinho SBC
My CMs do not seem to be very effective in a 442. Who could I use to replace them?
I can sell Maldini and Blanc and use Ake and other CMs that could better work. I got 1.2M to improve it.
I was thinking of Pogba and IF Allan, could it be a good pairing? Any other ideas?
Here is the system I use to have chemistry
I'm looking also for CT and instructions for the 442.
Would Pogba and Vidal work or is it too offensive?
I have 830k for a cb, either pl or icon any ideas?
Unfortunately I sold Blanc, he was lacking something but don’t know what.
I have now Pogba and Vidal, if you have already played 442 is it too offensive to have one on high/high and one on high/medium or is it fine?
I use Futmas Herrera and Prime Petit, the workrates seem to help with the amount of ground they need to cover and gets them involved in attack and defence
Work rates in 442 that I have found to work are:-
2 X med/high
2 X High/High
1 x Med/High 1 X High/Med
2x High/High isn't too exposed?
I'm going to give IF Allan / Pogba a go. Do you have instructions on them?
It’s all about quality though. I use Prime Rijk and Prime Vieira and they totally dominate in 442.
IF Allan - SBWA, you can try aggressive interceptions (it might pull him out of position and stamina might be an issue)
Pogba - balanced (his workrates mean he will naturally get forwards), Get in the box for cross
aggressive interceptions does nothing but drain stamina in my experience, also seems the AI will go for the lamest interceptions when not controlling the player, often sliding to the ground when all they needed to do is stick a leg out lol. And when they do that, the other player comes along and grabs the ball while ur guy is still on the ground trying to get up lol.
I use to do get forward on my more attacking CM (4411) and leave the other stay back but I have found the most success just leaving my two CMs on the default settings. I use IF Isco ( high attacking work rate) and PTG Saul ( high defensive wr) and they both score goals but are always there to defend as well.
I agree with this, must have one at least 1 CM that can score and create goals, hints why I use IF isco and PTG saul together.
I had that problem and realized I was using 442 holding and switched to 442 standard and was much less of a gap between cm and STR. You could also CT one of your outside mids to cut in and he would act sorta like a cam on one side.
