    Alright this weekend I’m going for a backline with Telles - Militao - Rio and Cancelo and move Florenzi to CDM but now I need a GK, every Brazilian GK sucks it seems so should I just play De Gea on 8 chem?

    Check out IF Pickford (85), he'll be on 10 chem with Ferdinand.

    Compare him with basic chem style with 10 chem to De Gea with basic chem style on 8 chem...very similar but hes 50k cheaper than De Gea.

    He is a bit shorter than De Gea though.

    Not a bad shout, but De Gea is a pain in the **** everytime I come against him and he seems like the best GK in the game. I guess Alisson isn’t good either right?

    I’m just happy I can finally replace Courtois either way, I absolutely hate him inreal and his face bothered me everytime I saw him in my team lol!

    Yep De Gea is always a problem for me when I play against him.

    I got his 92 CL card from the SBC but cant fit him in and also PIM Yashin is incredible and won't come out of my team anytime soon.

    I've had mixed feelings with Alisson, sometimes hes amazing but mostly makes mistakes.

    I can imagine Yashin is very good, way out of my budget sadly. I guess all these keepers have moments where they’re great and where they just make weird mistakes, just got to find the most consistent one I guess.

    Other than Yashin De Gea has been the most consistent keeper I've used.

    Cheers guys, De Gea it is then.

    Now I just need to figure out wether I get Aurier or Cancelo as RB as I move Florenzi to the midfield.

    Looking forward to Auriers upgrade, packed him too in CL SBC. Need a decent EPL winger though to try out with him.

    Son?

    I really love Florenzi in the CDM spot, I just can’t play him RB when he’s so amazing as CDM!

    Yep was looking at Birthday Son, looks pretty good.

    I do like Florenzi, not tried him at CDM yet but at RB he's so good. He feels a bit like EOA Ramsey but much better defensive stats.

    He’s all over the pitch and his long shots are amazing, he has this sort of “dip” on his long shots and if you get the ball with him just run run and run then send your strikers for a 1v1.

    I could actually do Dumfries in the hope I pack something decent from all these packs and get Promes back but I’m not sure if it’s smart to do Dumfries at this stage.

    I didn't really like Dumfries, felt a bit clunky but could have been my connection at the time, only used him for 5 games.

    Lads should I sell Ronaldo and play 98 Messi up top with Eusebio? Tried putting Messi in with the squad as the RM but feel that he’s really wasted there. Can probably use the coins to upgrade untradeable David Luiz to someone like Rio Ferdinand.

    I’d say yes, but I prefer Messi over CR7 ingame so I’m probably a little biased.

    What Rio you’re going to get?

    Telles and Militao are so good, I will never get rid of them again!

    I think even if Militao wont get a TOTS he’ll still be a top tier CB, Telles will most likely get one so he’ll go straight into the squad.

    Quick game with @EisenErmin 's tactics. Got to say its really helpful to record my own games and see where I went wrong. Still using my drop back/longball tactic when I am in a must win situation or a close game, but Eisenermins are a lot of fun and you create tons of chances.

    His tactics are great when chasing a goal, but against 433 you get completely destroyed on the wings. I really like it attacking wise tho.

    Maybe combine his attacking tactics with more balanced defensive tactics? 🤔

    Yea I feel 442 struggles against 433 a bit anyways. Luckily not a lot of people are playing it. I will try having the cdms on balanced using my own tactics, I feel that adds a lot to the attack where otherwise our strikers have to create everything on their own

    I might try that too, I think one always stays back when the other one pushes up with both on balanced.

    I did the Rijkaard sbc last year and ended up regretting it. He can play one role well, being the destroyer in a cdm role. And I didnt even find him outstanding in that role. For everything else, he is quite useless

    The formation plays so much better with the CDMs on balanced and I don’t feel like it gets any worse defensively.

    Now I just need to find a RB, Cancelo or Aurier?

    Personally I would go for Aurier

    Trying my tactics and instructions now in a 442flat, which makes it even more attaking. Last game in Rivals i was down 3-0 by halftime, switched to 442 then and managed to get a 4-3 lead. Finished 4-4 in the end, but i really dominated the second half. My opponent had PIM Roberto Carlos as LB. He had 2 passes all game :smile: I will never get it why anyone would use one of the greates attacking fullbacks of all time, spend 1.5 million on him, and then set him to stay back an never give him the ball.

    LB: Always join attack
    RM+LM get into box for crosses
    default on everything else

    Used SBC Hamsik and the new Florenzi as CM´s, both are high/med workrates + Marcello (high/low) as attacking leftback. As you can imagine: Its very very vulnearable in defense but great in completely dominating. I would not recommend it against a very good player, but if you feel you can just dominate and dictate the way the game plays, its destroying your opponent

    To early to judge, but so far he is good. He is a bid small (compared to Milinkovic Savic) but very agile and he is fast! Havnt scored with him so far, but his shooting is powerfull. I did him with untradeables and maybe 20K, so he did not cost much and i doubt we will se a better attacking fullback even at TOTS. So i might use him as a fullback sometime and set him to join the atack.

    Yeah, that’s why I did him, he’s so versatile and can play anywhere.

    I played 2 games today with SharePlay on someones account with PIM Cruyff, Best, Desailly, Prime Eusebio, Ronaldinho etc and these players really make a difference. My team felt so bad once I got back to it lol.

    I sold Kondogbia as he will probably only drop from now on and I made like 172k profit on him which is nice. I have about 450k coins now and ~300k worth of untradeables so I’m slowly going to build towards Prime Eusebio to replace Messi.
