    Why are you changing to this formation? Is it because you want to play 1 depth, drop back and run back with your midfielders while you let the CPU play defense for you?

    Or because all of the youtubers play this formation?

    Its balanced formation but 1 dept only works if you get better ping than opponent it doesnt matter what formation you play or how you defend when game is switching to wrong players or moving your players out of position they run like they stuck in mud and cant make a simple pass

    I wouldn't knock players trying this formation and letting the AI play defense.
    This game punishes you for taking control of your defenders. Sad to say but it is most effective when AI defends for you, especially your CB's.

    Once someone controls CB's = easy skill move to go past them or easy through ball past them.

    Red Balotelli 85 with Marksman. Low driven everytime. He scores more goals than my CR7.

    I’ve played this formation mostly since I got the game apart from a spell with 3/5 at the back. I like it because you can use alternative options out wide other than conventional wingers.

    In terms of strikers, it depends on your play style. As my club has progressed I have used all kinds of different ones. I would recommend just trying some different ones tbh.

    I use joelinton ffs or arnautovic hl as they are untradables. But I used Werner this week for the objective with great success, also the likes of Vardy, morata, poulsen, immobile. They all did a job. HL rashford is also very good there, though I use him as a wide cam.

    I’d say I have most success personally with someone over 6ft and a bit of pace. But I would say experiment and see what works for you.

    One of those unrealistic cards like the trump cards kids play at school should do, or a real player if you want to win and not the CPU win for u

    Aguero
    Suarez

    Best striker in the world is the "Meta" ? Shocking.

    4231 is the meta yes but only to repel those that play 41212 narrow and rely on the counter and quick one twos between they're front 3

    4231 nullifies this, especially with drop back

    I have my depth on 6 though

    OP - an all rounder is very good in this formation, a striker who's fast, strong, good in the air and can dribble. POTM/CL Aguero is v good

    worst type of players to play against
    zero creativity with 3 pacey forwards

    No it's because I like the idea of 3 Cams.

    I use FFS Jovic. Just look at his stats, the man has it all.

    Ucl Aguero for me, I have all the fb strikers and have found Aguero to be the most consistent, not sure if it’s his links or what but he does it all, i pair up fb ibra with him when I go to a 2 man up top but Aguero still outdoes him.

    87/88 Rashford (if you haven't got FB Ibra).

    4231 nullifies every formation. It also nullifies enjoyment and fun
