    Hi,

    Thank you for a really nice formation guide, it is very inspiring and I would like to give it a go. I am thinking of starting with a cheap serie A squad:

    Any inputs for improving this squad? If I like this formation this will be my fitness team, and I will have aroung 1 mio coins for my primary 4-4-1-1 team.

    Any advice is highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Replace Hernanes with either Nainggolan, Marchisio, or De Rossi. All preference there. Tbh, Marchisio - Nainggolan is amazing.

    Sandro is miles better than F. Luis. Play Dybala at CF and convert Mertens to CM and play him at LM on 7 chem. 7 Chem Mertens is the best LM in Serie A for this formation. Also get a better LCB. Jesus is overrated imo. So many better Italian options.

    These recommendations are for competitive play in Divisions. Ofc just play whoever you want if it's tournaments! Hope that helps pal.

    Great topic, I really enjoyed playing this formation with Man City on online seasons. Do you recommend a target man or a quick striker like aguero/suarez for this formation?
    I prefer quick ones that can pass and finish on both feet. Aguero and Suarez really excel in the formation.

    I do agree with you, played about 10 games with a target man and 10 games with Suarez today.
    I did not really like the target man @ ST position, but I did like him @ CF (I used Ibra btw).
    The formation is just unstoppable with Suarez @ ST, just on standard instructions, scored me 12 goals in 3 games :smiley:

    Exactly. Some people underestimate what a H/M or H/L striker can do for you when he's off the ball. Suarez, Aguero, Griezmann, Lacazette, and Auba are the best strikers for this formation imo. And IF versions of Lewandowski even though he's M/M.

    @dimuric13 - Aguero is the best in Prem by a lot tbh.

    Higuain/ Dybala. I've also heard great things from @CrashDavus about IF Perisic for CF.

    Oh, Morata at ST is very very good as well. Such a great budget player. He and Higuain are both good in different ways.

    Perfect, I implemented it all and swapped Jesus with Barzagli. Should I replace Jovetic with Morata or another Serie A striker?

    I can afford Messi, and if I buy him I will have around 150 k left. Can you recommend me a team build around Messi, available for 150 k?

    Or should I buy Suarez instead and build a team around him as ST, with the 750 k?

    Thanks, I really appreciate your inputs

    Imo, I would build a squad around Suarez instead of buying Messi and sweating it out with 150k. BBVA is expensive and I know I would try to force it into Messi all the time. I'm actually waiting for suarez's nif price to drop to do the same.

    I usually don't recommend buying Messi unless you can afford decent players around him. If you can spread out the 150 k then go for it. I'd play him at CF ofc and put Griezmann or Benz in front. Then use Nolito and Turan or Feghouli on the wings. The rest is preference.

    Hard to say about the Serie A situation. So much of picking strikers is preference. I like Higuain and Morata the best.

    @Khangaskhan17 And you had to contemplate typing this guide up ? great response thus far!!!!!

    And while I'm here I've never had success with 4-4-1-1 and i'm a FUT founder :D

    What'd be the best Ligue 1 team to use in your opinion? thanks.

    @Dunk, I really appreciate your support from the get-go!

    Didn't know your budget but here are two options to consider. I've used NIF versions of both teams and the hybrid was better but that's to be expected I guess. Lmk what you think :smile:

    Full L1: - Price: 1.9 mil on PS4, 1.8 mil on XB

    L1 Hybrid: - Price: 2 mil on PS4, 1.9 mil on XB

    Sold Kroos and Marchisio yesterday and Bought Auba. Already lost 5k on him. :) Should have waited till today before buying him.

    Need to build a decent team with Auba, Muller, Rode, Badstuber, ter Stegen as I am low on coins.

    Have Nainggolan, Rudiger in my club as well...

    Auba
    Muller
    Gervinho naingolan rode Mkhytiryan
    Serie a lb, Rudiger Badstuber bundes rb
    Ter Stegen..

    Edit: I'd probably prefer nif Castro over rode (only going off stats as I've used neither.)

    Thanks for the tip. Will check it out but can't afford Henrik M as I only have 1k now. Have the rest of the players.

    Thanks for the offer but I'm on Xbox One.

    Very nice of you.

    Found out I had a kit worth over 1k so I'm good now to buy him :)

    I honestly wouldn't recommend it unless you're really amazing at passing. They don't really have much strength and only mediocre finishing.

    Back to back wins for the first time in over 20 matches.

    Auba is decent, but not as quick as his status would suggest. Muller seems faster most of the time for some reason. But Auba scores.

    Would it be advisable to sell Auba and try to go for SIF Kruse?

    Muller makes those awesome runs all the time:

    I did. I had SIF Auba and was not impressed with him at all.

    So SIF Kruse is worth the coins?
