The 4231 Thread



I thought i would make this thread since 4231 is a very popular formation this year
Share your 4231 Teams
I will be continually posting new 4231 teams....

Tips and Notes for 4231:

5 Midfielders suggests that possession between midfielders is the most beneficial tactic when using this formation. Try and keep possession with slick passing until space is created and then make the most of the opportunity.

CDM: Have at least one CDM with a High defensive work rate and low/medium attacking work rate to protect your self from the counter attack. Look for CDM's with good defensive stats.
Good CDM's to have are: De Rossi, Alex Song, Tiote, Luiz Gustavo, Lassana Diarra, Yaya Toure etc.

CAM: The best CAM's for this formation are basically CAM's that play like wingers. Key stats needed to make the best out of your CAM's are 80+ pace, 4 star skills to get passed defenders out wide, 70+ passing and decent dribbling. Also i prefer my LCAM to be right footed and my RCAM to be left footed so I can cut back on to their stronger and take a shot.
Good CAM's to have are: Juan Mata, Sessegnon, Carlos Eduardo, Tarrabt, Dembele, Gotze, Keven Prince Boateng, Moralez, Elton etc.

CF: In my Opinion your CF should be your best player/most expensive player as he will mostly touch the ball than any one lese in the team. He needs to be someone who can create but also be capable to put the ball in the back of the net with ease. 4 star weak foot is also a must because he will need to play off both feet. 4 star skills is also valuable along with decent pace.
Good CF's to have are: Marco Reus, Luis Suarez, Zarate, Messi, Rooney, Tevez, El Sharaawy etc.

S.T.: Basically look for the best finishers in the game and the best all round strikers. 4 star weak foot is key for a lone striker.
Good *'s to have are: Falcoa, Benzema, Remy, Ibra, Torres, RVP, Higuain, Di Natalie, Balo, Aguero, Pato, Welliton etc.


Fullbacks (LB and RB): I generally like having one more attacking fullback and one more defensive. Also you can switch your LB and RB in game according which side needs more attack and which side needs more defense based on your opponents players and formation. A good partnership would be Enrique and walker, Bedimo and Fanni or Caceres and Nagotamo.

Work Rate Guide:

*Best Options from left to right

Striker: High/low or High/Med Med/low
CF: High/Med or Med/Med or High/High
CAM: High/Low or High/Med or Med/Low
CDM: Med/high or Low/High or High/High
LB or RB: Med/Med or Med/High or High/med (I usually like having one fullback being more attack minded and the other being more defensive)
CB: Any as long as you dont have a Low defensive work rate and Don't push L1 and X (note sure of the Xbox buttons) when passing the ball with a CB, so they dont sprinting forward out of position

You should try ekstraklasa silvers. They have great players for that formation up front and are cheap.
