    I'm having a fair amount of luck with the 4-4-1-1. Brief summary of how I've played when successful:

    Custom tactics: reduced pressure, aggression and width, slightly increased build up play.

    Patiently play the ball around between fullback, wide mid and CM for a bit until either:

    A. The striker or CF works himself into a position to receive a pass.

    Or

    B. With the play all dragged over to one side of the pitch, switch play to the other fullback, play it up to the wide mid and exploit the space created by having had the play concentrated on the other sode for so long. Maybe a 1-2 with the cm or cf.

    This is the exact same thing I am doing currently to win games. Good strategy and implemented CTs by @Littleland95

    Apologies for the basic question guys, but can you walk me through the W/end Champions thing? Do I have to win all week in order to participate? How does it work? Sounds v interesting to me.

    @Shingalallada You win one Daily Knockout in the FUT Champions and you get qualified for the week-end. Next week you need to qualify again to be able to participate in that week-end league.

    Can max play 40 matches and you get packs and coins based on how you do and rank after the week-end. The prizes will be given before the next week-end league starts.

    Won the daily knockout thing to qualify for FUT Champions wee-end league and got promoted to Division 5 on FUT Seasons. Really enjoying playing now when team plays like I want to.

    Could you talk us through your play style please? I'm looking for something that suits how I want to play but haven't found it yet.

    I pass the ball around and use triangle passes to move forward. I can do crosses and head the ball to score or pass my way into the box as well and finish.

    One goal through the middle:

    Cross:

    Counter goal:

    Nothing fancy but lots of options all the time.

    Hello Guys,

    I am currently using this team

    https://www.easports.com/fifa/ultimate-team/web-app/show-off?showoffId=dnTW58Oblbt:FFA17XBO

    I am looking to bring in Kante in due course, I was wondering if you guys had any idea what CT's I should use also any recommendations on improvements are welcome.

    Thanks!

    Team looks very solid. Kante should fit nicely in the team. You can try Henderson or Milner or both as well as they really fit this formation if you use the CTs I posted on the top of the Original Post.

    does cr7 work in this formation? i guess yes .)?

    CR7 would be a bit wasted as LM but as a RF in CF or ST he should bag loads of goals. :)

    So if i win today, I will qualify for the w/end champions. I start the matches, what if I won? Do I have to qualify yet again even though I won my first match at the w/end Champions?

    its simple as that:

    You have 4 or 5 tries per tournament(daily knockouts). Its listed on the Main screen how many left you have. When you enter you start tournament. You have to win 4 straight matches to win the tournament.

    IF you win, you will be elgible to play weekend league during saturday and sunday. You can check that on Schedule/Rank on the Fut Champions menu. Then you will have 40 matches during that 2 days, more you win, better prizes packs/coins you get.

    Thats all

    Then, next week you will also have this daily knockouts and you will have to win tournament again to qualify for the weekend.

    thanks

    I like it. Only player I'm not sure about is IF Calhan at LM because of his workrates. Rest looks great.

    And what about a hybrid? Was thinking Aurier and Di Maria?
    And left side? :)
    Don't really like the wingers in Calcio A (I'm not a skiller).

    Aurier and ADM should be very good. Not tried any of them yet though.

    Perisic is very good as LM from Calcio A.

    Midfield is great all around,Perisic is really nice at CF and of course Dybala is clinical and his ball controll is out of this world.

    I've posted a few goals. Can't afford to buy a recording device at the moment unfortunately. Maybe @Khangaskhan17 can record some stuff? He's the master of 4-4-1-1.

    Robben did less for me than Embolo, Vieirinha and Schopf did. Could be me but Robben doesn't work for me in this formation. Not much involved at all.

    Not tried Costa yet. His workrates might make him a bit lost. Kostic is very good for me as LM.

    Rest looks very good.

    So, of course I had to go through tons of updates on the Xbox. Got them done overnight, so should be able to play some games tonight and start fine tuning my play style.
