What’s the best custom tactics for 4-2-3-1?

This is my current team. Need some guidance for this weekend’s WL.

Should I play CR7 ST or LAM/RAM?

If you could give me some guidance on the tactics that would be great 👍👍

    one of my fav since fifa 13 but this year i cant like the formation at all. Idk what is wrong but every time i try to play with it, my cam's dont make ****, total useless.

    St balanced. Cam balanced. Ram Ann Lam get into box for crosses. Left cdm, on stay back, cover centre. Right cdm cover center only. Full backs stay back.

    Presure on heavy touches.
    Depth 4
    Width 5

    When I used that formation I enjoyed it most on balanced with 5 width and 7 depth and on fast build up. I tweaked about with custom tactics for weeks to see what suited best.

    But I also manually defend and play attacking football so this wouldn't suit many as the majority of games I play is against people on drop back with low depth and they wouldn't even dream about controlling a defender all by themselves 😂

    Balanced balanced
    Depth 4 width 4

    St and all 3 cams on stay forward.

    Give it time. You’ll get used to it.

    If you are struggling try fast build up or long ball. It’s all down to preference as to how you play.

    Asking for custom tactics is a starting point. But do what works for you and the way you play, not just what someone else tells you. Experiment and pick what works best.

    What works for me, or what I like, won’t necessarily be best for you.

    How come only one CDM in stay back?

    Is pressure on heavy touches effective?

    With the lag in the game yes.

    Both cdms on balanced, cover centre, cut passing lanes. Their high defensive workrates will mean they drop back quickly anyway but will also give you better options going forward.

    Mate, most people play defensive with this formation, but not all.
    I cannot defend for ****, or even attack, so I just go gung ho with it - and have fun.
    I play normally on 1st div, just dropped to 2nd recently for lack of play, and trying crazy formations (one win from coming back).
    My player instructions are:
    One full back to stay, the other just leave default
    One CDM to stay back and cut passes
    The other leave him join the attack (2nd wave support)
    CAMs I only change the L and RCAM to be in the area for crosses, this will make sure that they are there to help inside (I don’t cross)
    ST I change to stay forward and go behind

    I am out, will send you the tactics in a bit.

    Cams would not stay ahead. where should they then run forward, run in the depth, if they are already on the outside line?
    Only CAM with stay forward is the middle one.

    Wide Cams perhaps with into box for crosses, but i dont feel a difference there.

    Play Football!
