I am trying to rebuild my team coz I did SBC begovic. So I need some gold bpl cb's
So far I have in mind: (i play 5212)

ROJO Fof (good workrate)
VERTHONGEN Tots (seems really good but h/h)
OTAMENDI Tots (bit slow and h/h)
STONES Fof (seems amazing and fast but he has the worst workrate med defense and high attack tha ****?)
VAN DIJK Xmas maybe?
MUSTAFI If (good workrates)
AZPI If (med/med, pace)


I just know that next week I will be back with Manolas(H/L)-Koulibaly(H/H)-Benatia(H/M) xD
The workrates were perfect

    No experience of Otamendi but I loved FOF Stones, so much so that he replaced Prime Blanc in my back 4, his passing stats are brilliant. I have since replaced him with EOAE Kompany but only purely out of the addiction to complete SBCs, haven’t noticed any improvement in my defending tbh

    He is that good? Maybe i'll go with :
    Young - Rojo - Verthongen - Stones - Walker then
    But I'll wait to see if anyone tried Otamendi

    I got FoF Stones next to EOAE Kompany and they are rocks!!! Had them paired for 2 weeks now and won't be changing before 19 now

    Yeah i missed EOEA Kompany, I was really happy with Benatia TOTS - Koulibaly TOTS & Manolas FUT (or Chielini gold don't remember if it was before or after manolas)
    But i'm tired of Serie A keepers

    Fof Stones has been the best pl cb along side tots azpi, so I'd say go for Stones.

    Okay then, thanks!
    So what do you think would work better?

    1 : ROJO FoF 89 - AZPI IF 87 - STONES FoF 89

    2 : ROJO FoF 89 - VERTHONGEN ToTS 92 - STONES FoF 89

    3 : VERTHONGEN ToTS 92 - AZPI IF 87 - STONES FoF 89

    4 : maybe something with OTAMENDI TOTS 93?

    Got for ROJO and Azpi. It’s probably the best combo you can have.

    Stones is class. He can wander with the workrates, but is fast enough to recover. Solid in tackling, and is a major threat at set pieces.

    I also play 5212, so I can say that he will defo work as a 3, as long as you have other defenders who stay back to help cover.

    What are the others cb that you use then?

    LWB Young M/M
    LCB Stones H/M (Attack/Defense)
    CB Rojo M/H
    RCB Azpi M/M
    RWB Walker H/M

    Seems okay not the best but should be fine I think

    I have just got & tried last night Stones + Rojo = good
    I will replace Rojo with Azpi if doesnt work out, but Rojo is left footer.
    had Otamendi & sold after a Season - too short / wasnt part impressed

    After one game i know that those med workrates in defense are not for me
    Rojo was really good! But Azpi and Stones omg they do not fit in this formation.
    They are always everywhere but in defense!
    When you're used to play with Benatia-Koulibaly-Manolas you see just how bad they are...

    Back with Kolarov-Manolas-Koulibaly-Benatia-Walker ;)
    I'll just use Begovic as a sub when the game start

    Yeah I had the same problem with Ramos !
    Calcio is good, but doesnt Koulibaly step up / out?
    also GK`s not good

    I know that he is H/H but you don't feel it, actually in my experience you have to be more carefull with h/m and m/m (attack/defense) than with h/h.
    You HAVE to have a High defensive workrate (at least with these formation)
    And Koulialy is so physical and fast that it's okay. Also put him in the middle so he can pass and it's okay for him to be a little higher.

    For keepers you have Handa if 90 (not his tots) and Mirante.
    Or you can sub DDG or Begovic Futties like I do xD
