Has anyone had success with "slower" wingers? Like Coutinho and Mahrez?

    Those aren't slow players, they're actually very fast.

    IF Moses is class. He overpowers a lot of smaller fullbacks and is deadly in and around the box. :)

    Pretty sure @SaifR enjoys using LW Mkhitaryan. :)

    Sif Arnautovic is pretty good. But I play him at LCM.

    Agreed. 80 pace is fast enough. Anything extra is a bonus. Nani is one of my favourite wingers I've used on this game. Much better than the likes of Williams, Cuadrado and Douglas Costa for me

    Actually moved him back to LCM to provide a spark from midfield. Not because he isn't great on the wing, he is, but because the team needed it.

    But his agility, dribbling and 5* WF made him a joy to use. I wouldn't consider him slow though, he just doesn't have blistering pace. :)

    I finished elite 2 with a 12k team with 72 pace on one of my wingers. I'd say if you play 433(4) it wont matter because you will have a lot of passing options. However in a narrow formation like 4321 I don't think it will work

    What about in a formation with wide mids?

    Should work especially if the winger on the other side if very fast. I currently run with Piatti at LM and Alessandrini in my 4231(2) team and it plays well. Piatti allows for good link up play and with an engine card any of those low 80 high 70 pace guys become more than fast enough

    I use a team regularly in a 4-1-2-1-2 wide - LM/RM are NIF Pedro and First IF Bernardo Silva

    Use them.wherever I can ill take the usually insane dribbling and better passing they generally have over raw pace anyday.

    Pl I use coutinho left motm pedro right. 4411

    Used If coutinho and TOTT mahrez on right wing, with plenty of success in a proper winger formation, however recently changed to 4321 and they don't really cut the cake as forwards rather than wingers

    Lucas Vasquez has been great on my pack only account. I got him first as a non rare and from the off he racked up assists. Then pulled his UP the other day and carried on much the same. Is around the Mahrez pace range.

    Underrated imo.

    SIF Isco is an incredible RM. As is SIF Hakan at LM.

    Also i wouldnt call any winger over 80 pace slow :D

    @TKBC how is 41212 wide for you? I really want to build a team in that formation but the lone cdm kinda keeps me off

    I have no idea why but I don't seem to be able to use pace to my advantage. 75 pace or 95 pace wide player, they won't outrun fullbacks. So I tend to go with good passing, strength and dribbling.

    I used Candreva for a bit and he was solid. TIF Silva is good but he gets outmuscled a lot.

    I'm afraid that coutinho will be the same as silva. I really want to try him, though. Let's see what I get out of him!

    How does a lm generally feel/play on a lcm spot with 7 Chem, do you feel the difference to 10 Chem?

    I wonder what you would say about IF Tadić. He is beyond fantastic by the way.

    It's good. I think the keys are the CDM and CAM. In that same team I have David Silva and Morgan Schneiderlin in the middle. Works quite nicely for me. I am a Div 1-2 player.

    If your CAM is getting pushed off the ball a lot you aren't passing quickly enough, nor are you using L2 well enough. I have zero issues with players getting pushed off and I use Giovinco, Insigne, etc etc etc

    I feel the same in 4411, I'd rather have a more balanced card there than say 90+ pace and on more of a forward. And even in other formations I play better with a playmaker or two in the side.
