    Bayern would be very good.

    Real are also pretty suited to play it I would think and if they transfer Sterling to City, I reckon they could line up well too
    Aguero
    Sterling - Yaya - Silva - Navas
    Fernando/Fernadinho
    Defense

    Internationally I'm sure theres some but I'm struggling to think of any that fit it overly well.

    I quite like the second. Definitely stick with Suarez up top and I personally prefer Nani to Cuadrado and Rakitic to Fabregas

    Would a brazil one work? Was thinking

    Jonas
    neymar ronaldinho ramires hulk
    melo
    marcelo luiz silva alves

    I've run basically that team, except Hernanes instead of Ronaldinho and Danilo instead of Alves. It works quite well. If you're gonna run Ronaldinho, just have somebody on the bench to sub at the half.

    That'd work well too. I assume you mean TOTS Jonas, and if you don't you should. ;)

    Also recommend at least one H/H in the front two CMs, with Ramires being the obvious choice. Probably go Teixeira/Ramires. As for Lucas/Hulk, I'd say that's down to taste.

    Ramires finishing is poor though. Whenever i used hulk he felt poor?

    Lucas/Hulk are both decent
    I'm not a huge fan of Teixeira having used him personally. Ramires is so OP, would partner him with Hernanes tbh.
    IF Melo or Gustavo at DM imo tho.

    Is there any way i can improve this side?

    Lewandowski
    ribery gotze Schweinsteiger robben
    lahm
    alaba benatia boateng Pisczek

    I dont mean upgraded cards just different players?
  • Hi folks,

    This guide for me is a life saver. Been struggling this year to get a formation to suite the passing style of play I prefer to use and which enables the use of slower players. But this and the instructions work a treat, Thanks @Thatoe .

    Saying this i am having difficulty using the wingers to score goals, they are involved in most of the build up play but very rarely get into scoring positions.
    This is the team i am using at the minute and was wondering how it could be improved,i have around 250k to play with.

    Cheers.

    How do you think this would play? Might get Schweinsteiger if Gotze doesn't do it for me.

    That's why if Gotze doesn't work, I will get Schweinsteiger instead.

    Central Midfielder

    You don't need defensive players here. You can actually even pick two attacking play makers. However, I find that pairing a box-to-box midfielder with a more creative play maker makes the transition from defense to attack much smoother. When defending, he will help out the lone holding midfielder, almost as a false 6. He will also be as much involved in the attack as his CM partner. For the creative CM, you can pick any of your typical CAM type player, most likely small, quick and agile player who can create something out of nothing. Again, this player doesn't need to be good defensively at all.

    Use an agile cm at lcm like you are doing

    You will get ripped apart if you play a med low.

    Get a striker like Lewandowski who can hold up the play

    Thanks for the feedback. @Smoothino
    I will change Vitolo for Pedro(Hopefully this will get my LM more involved), but I am struggling to find a replacement for Navas whithout having to swap round my back 4.
    Also what would you say is the ideal LM/RM workrates???

    Cheers.

    If you're wanting to keep it Bundesliga theres no like obvious changes
    SIF Perisic/Reus are both good choices at LM if you don't like Ribery
    Gustavo is a quality CDM and a bit more physical than Lahm, Lars Bender also does well there
    TOTS Junuzovic is also a decent box to box CM
