    @CFC-shazaam I might be slightly but I really like him. He's very complete for a striker. He just lacks pace. Can win any header, but he loses some due to his strenght. But 80 strenght is very nice with his jumping. He's always in the right place, got nice passing for a striker and can finish everything.

    I really like him

    Love this mate, particularly the target man rating thing :p

    Do you not think aggression or workrates should be considered in the system though? Would be hard I suppose because there are many different opinions on "good" workrates. Also would be cool if you could get a table for all the best ones, or maybe even a graphic ;)

    Aduriz or Big Andy have always been quality from my experience, but this year I like the look of Djordjevic despite the wr's.

    @Wilfo777 WIll do a graphic I think, great idea. Bit busy with school this week, that's more important than FIFA for me though ;)

    I'll probably do some maintainance on sunday I think

    Ok, so aduriz is an absolute godly mofo. He's made so many goals out of nothing for me. Playing a Target man just makes simplistic football happen and I love how it looks!

    Just won 7-3 vs some cheap-ish inter team and Aduriz was the scorer all 7 times. I only conceded because I was messing around at the back too!

    Have I missed it, or is Dzyuba not in the list? I feel he has been superb for me so far.

    If you've used him much, how do you find Luca Toni?

    I've only played one game so far but have him in my team and was certainly winning headers. Didn't get in a position to send a ball into him in the box though.
  • would really love to see a video on how u guys using a target man..
    im using Slimani right now quite good..but when i try to keep the ball..the defenders always steal the ball even from behind

    Struggling with crosses and headers at the moment, Keepers are too OP with the punches. Using Ibra, keepers nearly always wreck through him.

    Some tips though, use the shield button with back to goal and draw defenders in, then fake shot backwards and you nearly always will knock past them and throw them off balance and you will be free to shoot.

    Nice guide.

    I really like IF De Jong, he makes my team play better and the CAM behind him is scoring goals for fun.
  • Thanks for this awesome guide! I've always wanted to play a one striker/target man formation. :)

    This is a cheap little squad I threw together that works pretty well.

    3GkYRo4.jpg

    I tried the 433 (2)/(4) at first but kept getting burned on the counter, so I switched to the 4231(2). I really like having both CDMs with M/H workrates, because even with the "Stay back while attacking" instruction they will end up going forward a bit.

    I prefer to have a guy a bit smaller but more mobile eg. Martinez, Benzema, Balotelli.

    Here's my starter team with Balo:

    PFPmOt3.png

    Balotellli wins most headers, holds up play well and is an aerial threat. So he does his job as a target man whilst having the benefits of being able to run in behind and dribble out of trouble. I've scored 6 in 4 games with him. I'm still getting to gripes with the shooting as well so should've scored more. He's well worth the 2.8k I bought him for and I'd recommend him to anyway who struggles to use immobile target men like Traore. Although Jackson is obviously my dream 'mobile target man' when I get the coins.
  • Hey guys. I really like this thread.
    I normally play around skillers, but I'm going to try something a little out of my comfort zone this year and follow the suggestions on this thread.
    If anyone can recommend their favourite target man squad please message me here, or @CallMeWalz on twitter.

    Sure you're not just saying that because he's A PSV IF? ;)

    His balance blows imo

    Crosses and headers are soo good for me. Early crosses are the **** they always leave me with a clean header

    This could be a new challenge for me with my MLS 4-2-3-1 (2)

    8a29eb7580dd2f273c1e4a92667a5859.png

    He is 6'2" and has 81 strength on his 66 rated NIF. Jumping should get to near 70. Finishing near 70 as well with 80+ shot power. Heading near 70. Not bad for a 69 rated silver. I hope,since EA is in Canada and he is Canadian, he gets an in form for his hat trick while breaking the rookie scoring record in MLS.

    Obviously there are a bunch of golds that are better but for a 69 rated, it should be good and/or silver squads.

    Edit: Actually it sounds like he will be 70 rated so probably 70 or more on his finishing, jumping, and heading plus 83+ on shot power and strength. :smiley:
