    Well, I am in a terrible blank

    I always liked to use themed squads, one nation, one club, but after my terrible experience with the Dutch squad (was a good team, but I don’t know why I couldn’t win with they), I don’t know where to go.
    I spend hours looking to the squad builder and have zero ideas, the team with Nsame is doing good so far, but I have 600k coins and I want to use it 😂😂😂😂😂

    I had a great Werder Bremen team last year with Klose up top.

    Full Newcastle with Shearer could be fun too

    My plan was ligue 1 for the whole of FIFA 21 then got stung with an untradable VVD and Wijnaldum which forced me to slot them in.

    I keep hovering on binning them into an SBC so I can get back to my original plan :)

    I do that all the time - happy to SBC any number of high end players so I can go on some personal crusade with an off meta player B)

    Ha I'm sure once the icon sbcs come I'll bin them. But I'm only allowed icons that played in ligue 1 at some point in their career.

    Here's the 4321 I mentioned earlier.

    Been messing with a 4321 today and had my best run of results so far. Servers have behaved though so can't fully say it's the tactic as just being delay free makes a load of difference.

    It's highly aggressive in defence but can play attack in any way you wish. It's great v ptb as you have almost as many men forward as they have back.

    PAPL 7/9
    BAL 6/6/2/2

    FBs conservative interceptions, overlap

    CCM drop between Def, conservative ints, cover centre.

    R and LCM cover centre

    ST stay central, stay forward, target man

    RF/LF stay central, GIB

    Conservative ints are there so that the FBs get back to position rather than commit to the press, the CCM also needs them or he rushes out of a back 3 too quickly before the CBs have had time to close back in. It also puts the CCM in a CDM type position just as they try the driven spam for easy pickings.

    So you have 5 get back quickly to a position to defend if a ball gets through and you have 5 executing the press. If the pos loss was central you have the 3 rf st lf all rushing a man making any forward pass difficult so they have to go sidewards giving that bit time needed to stop an immediate counter.

    This is really interesting, so it becomes like a 523 right?

    Yep or a 433, 343 it's really very fluid depending on opposition's setup and where on the pitch you are.

    Eg if opponent is playing a long ball with 4 up front and you are attacking on the right then the CCM drops into def one CB moves over to RB position and your lb stays back so you have man for man.

    If they are ptb and everyone's ran back then you go to a 3 ATB both your fullbacks advance into a 343/325.

    I had a great Werder Bremen team last year with Klose up top.

    Full Newcastle with Shearer could be fun too

    I always liked Manchester United, Chelsea, Internazionale an Milan.

    United is too meta this year, Milan is too weak.

    I am between a past and present Chelsea or Inter.
    If I be able to afford Drogba and Torres would be perfect, and Inter also has some great Icons like Eto’o this year.

    Help me decide, Inter or Chelsea?

    The tractor, zanetti although tbh even by icon standards his card is pretty poor for a FB.

    I will buy both teams and play 5 games each, I don’t care much if losing some coins. I’m not much confident with Inter defenders, play 3ATB with slow CBs is suicide

    Slap a shadow on them all. I use Fabinho at CB and he's class

    Thanks for those helpful tips :smile:

    @Helldragon A bit of a silly question but what camera are you using with this formation?

    I always wondered if my current setup might be hindering me somewhat.


    I play with the standard camera. I tried to play with the Coop once, but it didn't work out well.

    Giroud performing really well this year, great at hold up play and provides plenty of goals and assists for Hazard. Would really love an Icon Luca Toni one day.

    Unfortunately the rest of the CB´s and GK´s arent good enough imo, really hoping for some special cards so I can swap Ramos and Courtois out.

    I am trying Raul Jumenez, he is quite good as targetman (with CT of @Helldragon - thanks Bro). Do you think I need Hunter?, at moment I use hunter but I consider marskman as @Helldragon use for Dost.
