    Mbabu.
    But, in his time - i’d say birthday SMS with shadow. Unbeatable defensively, and never lost at the back post. Doesnt offer much going forward though..

    It's July. Why not the best attacking RB

    I didn't know fullbacks had a season where they were best?

    What I meant was. I'ts July. why think about defensive FBs when you can involve you FBs in the attack and try to enjoy some attacking football.

    with Fast Buildup, the fullbacks get up too much on Balanced. Even on "stay back" they still get forward on occasion.

    I don't use fast build up. but when I tried it. I didn't like it. not a lot of passing options under pressure. but I understand your point.

    Why wouldn't you attack in September and have fun in September? :confused:

    Cant recall the last time I played a game where the opponents full backs even came over the halfway line. Every time I broke up an attack and countered, there was a back 6 in place with the CDMs too.

    I like to use my RB/LB to get on, am using TOTS Dumfries and TOTS Mendy and have no issues with either attacking or defending. Dumfries is also a great target on attacking corners, which Mendy takes from the right side too.

    I use Da Costa as a CB in a 352. Beastly!

    You said It's July so have some fun and attack... I am merely confused about why July has anything to do with having fun or attacking with your fullback.

    Mbabu probably is the best ive used purely defensively. Best defensive outside back imo and ive used many of the top ones.

    Mbabu seems really dominant tbh. Best I've used from a defensive standpoint. Have you used either of TOTS Dumfries or Da Costa?

    Used Da Costa and he seemed to like to get forward a lot. Just got TOTS Dumfries in guaranteed 82+ yeaterday so will give him a try. I have TOTS Lala and I like him but I still feel Mbabu was better defensively.

    I've used all of them and Walker is the best.

    Have Walker and feel he is no better than Lala

    I will understand if people want to qualify for the events in the beginning of the game cycle and have their FBs on stay back. But now, the game is almost over. Why not just play attacking football instead of the boring 6 ATB.

    I’ve got to pick Dumfries over Da Costa. Da Costa was great but he makes a lot of runs forward (which is great when attacking) but that sometimes causes him to have to chase people down. Dumfries seems more balanced with attacking and defending IMO. Both are fantastic though

    Lala for me on stay back was an absolute monster. For attacking RB I love TAA, for defensive, it has to be him. :)
