Making a cheap team so I can stack my coins since I’m not gonna be playing that much for now but building around Ibra and this seems to be the best way to stick alessandrini at RM. Just curious if this formation is solid enough to stay in, can of course just switch it in game if it’s not. This is the <200k team I have planned if anyone wants to suggest any changes as well. Ibra, alessandrini and goretzka will be on 8.

Jesus - Ibra
Sane - Fabinho - goretzka - Alessandrini
Telles - IF Militao - boateng - Da Costa
Neuer

    It’s very good IMO. That looks like a solid build and has the right combos. Big/little ST, tall beasts in CM, fast outside, tall fullbacks and good CBS, I preferred Hummels over Boateng and if you have a fast CB next to him he will be great.

    I'm trying out the tactics @xciljw posted in other threads that you use also. First game it seems really really balanced and not as defensive as the tactics would have you believe.

    Got a few in mind? I can switch stuff around. I wanted to use this Scream Fellaini that I have but wasn’t sure who to put at striker in that case besides spending for IF Rashford (who I would love to know if he’s good because I will buy).

    I liked the look of that Brazil lb-cb hyperlink but can take them out if necessary. Lb options look pretty bad though besides him, alaba and sandro

    I’ll give hummels a try if I don’t like boateng for sure. I figured somebody like Sane would be nice at LM since he’s a lefty for some potential crosses to ibra and he’s tall, fast and physical so despite the poor defensive stats I’m sure he won’t be a complete liability. @Carswell

    Would cost like double the coins but could get IF rashford and martial to go with Scream fellaini for a triangle and get hummels and alaba and just run a full bundes backline

    I'm loving 4-4-2(2)

    Ibra Firmino
    Reus IF Delaney Fabinho Lucas
    Sandro Benatia Sanchez Valencia
    Lloris.

    Ibra subs on obviously but it's awesome . Most success I've had this year

    I use IF Sane at LM when I play 442 and he’s quality there.

    I just prefer someone that’s more capable going forward at CM in a 442. When I did use Fabinho and swapped to 442 in game based on a formation my Oppo was using, I’d sub Fabinho out for 9G. My other CM is Ballack. Currently I use Rooney and Ballack as my CMs, so I have no need to sub out when I change. Fabinho is just poor on ball and terrible at passing

    I use this, I find one playmaker and one defensive CM works well.

    I currently switch between 41212(2) & 4231 wide, but i'd be willing to try 442 i'm wondering would people think socrates 87 card/base be better in this positions than nif pogba? ... so my teams are this;

    Using this formation;

    Rooney - Ibra
    Rashford - Keane - Pogba/Socrates - Best
    Shaw - Lindelof - Bailly - Valencia
    DDG

    (could also have Socrates at striker with Ibra & Rooney cm).

    Rooney
    Futmas Rashford - FB Ibra - Prime Best
    Prime Keane - Pogba/Socrates base
    UCL Shaw - IF Lindelof - If Bailly 0- Futmas Valencia
    DDG

    &

    Rashford - Best
    Ibra
    Pogba/Socrates - Rooney
    Keane
    Shaw - lindelof - bailly - Valencia


    Like I said, i havent used this formation yet thats why i'm adding my other 2 into the equation but willing to give it a try once I know peoples opinions (Socrates would get everyone on 10 chem, otherwise Ibra or rooney wil be 8).

    I definitely agree with you. I would rather somebody a little more well rounded although Fabinho is great defensively. In the few games I’ve used scream Fellaini he’s honestly been insane so maybe I’ll just bite the bullet and grab IF Rashford

    @uhMaZiiNq

    I wouldn't say quality if you're thinknig at the likes of Marcelo, Sandro etc... but if you look at the bog standard LB's the EPL has in fifa (Robertson prob being the best of the bunch, but even he looks nowhere near Sandro etc), so Shaw is one of a few that're the best of the bunch (below Robertson).

    It's like the guys fighting for 7th in the Prem, best of the rest etc.

    That's a no then, though how much of it was Socrates compared to you? There's a reason you're the people's mod instead of the peoples champ :trollface: @ORANGEeffect05

    Edit:

    I'll rephrase my question...

    Would there be any icon better at cm alongside Prime Keane (FB Rooney I have atm that could do it or also thinking 87 Socrates but anyone below 900k really). If FB Rooney, is there any icon that'd be better at striker whilst rooney drops back for 900k or below?

    Cheers.

    Ended up salvaging G1 that weekend but he just wasn't suited in that midfield setup (only Matuidi really for the defensive duty). I think Rooney would compliment Keane well enough and would rather have a 4* skiller up top like 87 ADP ;)

    Downfall to that is ADP would push one of; ADP/Best/Rashford or IBra to CM.. (I'm thinking Rashford, but if he gets POTM as a striker that completely changes). @ORANGEeffect05 Plus think I'm 50k off ADP atm, so might have to just get a solid cm or keep Pogba for now :D

    if i had to change formation if 442 wasn't working for me is what I mean haha.

    Like my other 2 formations are 4231 & 41212, in the 41212 one of them would have to go to CM, which wouldn't work, but in a normal 442 it'd be fine... but i'm thinking i may need someone that can play cm/cam/st.

    Ah gotcha lol yea I have Firmino currently for CM/CAM versatility. Find him really useful as an outside mid next to two more defensively capable mids.

    Well I have Rashford, Best, Ibra, Rooney & then that Pogba role someone would take.. ADP would be a great player to have, but it's more is it what I need? (as much as i'd love him), plus I know if Rashford gets a POTM i'd get that asap... (though if it was lindelof i'd swap the IF out for him).
