Would be best to partner with Pogba in a 4-2-3-1?
Got like 1,3 mil on PS4

Looking at Ballack, Matthäus, Gerrard,...others?
Currently have NIF Fabinho and he does the job...hate his passing and pace tho. Also he cannot score if he is in the position to do so.

Obviously I should focus on someone defensive for CDM (even more when partnered with Pogba), but then again I sometimes change formation to 4-4-2 and could use a better CM as well so I kinda need best of both worlds?

ty guys :grimace:

    Never thought about Keane tbh
    Can he provide some attacking force every now and then as well?

    I have his prime untradable, his shooting is really poor, personally don't think he is good at anything just 'alright' at everything. Defo gonna trade in when a moments sbc comes out

    That is exactly what I was thinking XD


    Ballack all the way

    Stat wise he should be the perfect man I guess?
    With Matthäus being more defensive minded and Gerrard more offensive..
    RiJkaard

    Stats looking good hmmm also has the height, attacking wise not looking overly great tho

    Finally did his sbc. He is awesome, complete midfielder. I have him next to toty kante in my 433 attack squad. He is better at shooting and passing than his stats imply. It's also nice having that extra height in midfield to win headers. Really loving riykaard.

    Baby blanc, plus sell pogba and buy big Frank Riykard! Have one on stay back and the other balanced, both on cut passing lanes! Then let the front 4 do there thing!

    With Frank and blanc as CDMs you can also consider releasing a full back on to balanced

    I had fabinho and pogba and swapped fabinho for petit. Only about 20 games ago so hard to tell but feels like I made a good choice.

    good call! considering this as well now, ty


    Interesting that no one really talking bout Matthäus or Gerrard!
    Base Matthäus seems like a bargain to me? Only downside probably his height..

    currently a bit out of budget but I could save up for him in a few weeks tbh if he is worth it :)
    Seeing maaaaany Rijkaards here also, should consider him as well?

    Haven't used Rijkaard tbh so can't make comment. Vieira is very good though and Ballack feels a bit clunky compared to Vieira.

    thats what I hate on Fabinho bc he is so clunky...when I get home from work I gonna check what possibilities I have to go for Vieira :)

    Kante is a powerhorse! He is kinda small, but apart from that there is nothing to bother.
    I got the untradeable but not quite possible to fit in my squad, wouldve to reconstruct some parts - could save a lot of money tho ...

    Rijkaard/Vieira vs Kante???

    haha good shout, currently using FFS Militao + Varane, not sure if I wanna change that tho^^
    Either one of Kante, Fabinho, Rijkaard, Vieira are more defensive minded Midfielders
    any comparable ICON to Modric?? I like his smoothness :)

    Oh yes. He makes runs inside the box even though he’s on stay back. Every now and then he scores from inside the box or outside... Had to put gladiator on him though.

    Well, his dribbling is much better than Ballack’s imo...

    Prime Gullit lol
  • Oh and I play 433-4. He’s my right CM, stay back. I start my play on the left side (LCM is Modric and joins the attack). When the opponent’s defens is all on the left, it opens space on the right for Keane to make a run and either make a pass inside the box or score.

    Agreed. I have him at CDM and he still makes good runs and really is a great box to box player.
