I'll see your full backs at CB and raise you strikers at CB

So played a bit of rivals and got hit by hard delay (defenders stopping their runs when you switch to them). Was getting killed on every through ball. So I thought, sod it - I'll just stick my fastest strikers at CB on 1 or 2 chem. Those two mopped up every through ball and were intercepting most dangerous passes despite a slight pause when switching to them. I've come to the conclusion that it does not matter who you throw at CB (after losing 3 in a row with PM Puyol and base Capita and now winning 3 in a row with strikers at CB).

    I did that last year, even made a thread on it.

    I had Bale and Inaki Williams at CB, they were great.

    Game being what it is Carlos Alberto & Puyol are probably great at ST too.

    A couple of years ago someone had Doumbia as a GK just charged forward and grabbed the ball everytime you got anywhere close to the goal. Super effective with that 96 pace or whatever he had.

    No there is nothing wrong with this game at all. :p

    Played someone who used Ben Yedder at CDM, very difficult to get past lol. All thar matters is movement.

    Some here would say that you’re being smart for doing that and don’t see nothing wrong with it. Because it gets you wins.
