Buffon

Rafinha-Nesta-Rami-Clichy

Muller-Xavi-Kaka-Mata

Dzeko-Van Persie

Xavi and Kaka are your best midfielders so play through the middle. Use Dzeko (no. 9) as your target man, or use Xavi as a playmaker. Tackle hard if you have better opponents, otherwise you should use normal tackling. Mentality again depends on your opponent but your team is strong enough so I'd suggest Normal mentality, Direct Passing, Normal Tempo and press in your own half.

NB Never combine direct passing with attacking mentality. This will result in defenders booting the ball up to the forwards which would be wasteful in possession.

It's also advisable to avoid a fast tempo as it will result in wayward shots and passes. Fast - More shots, less on target; Slow - Less shots, more on target. However it's best if you still play fast when losing at 75 minutes as you'd want to be quick. This information makes sense and it is found in Help. I hope I was helpful.

My senior squad in a 4-2-3-1 lineup is:

GK: Hart

RB: Richards

LB: Clichy

CB: Kompany

CB: Lescott

CM: De Jong

CM: Y.Toure

RW: Nasri

LW: Silva

AM: Aguero

CF: Tevez

Substitutes:

Leno

Dzeko

Hazard

Barry

Milner

Ballotelli

K.Toure

Opinions on what style & tactics I should play with this squad?

I'd go with counter attacking style of play

4-3-3 Wingers

Tackling: Normal

Mentality: Normal

Passing: Direct

Passing st: Mixed/Down Both Flanks

Tempo: Fast

Pressing: Own Half

Use Counter Attack

You can play with "Men Behind Ball" if you want

You can use the target man(No. 9) or playmaker(No. 6) if you wish so.

Re: Austins guide to different styles of play

There'll be another update sometime this week.

Thanks for all the rep guys!Much needed :D

hey Austin. It's nice to see that you shared all of these with us.

erm, this's an old thread. I don't know whether you still play this game.

If you do, please help me on this.

Here's my Chelsea lineup.

GK - P.Cech

Defenders - B.Ivanovic, D.Luiz, J.Terry, A.Cole,R.Bertrand

Midfielders - H.Xavi, X.Alonso, E.Hazard, J.Mata, E.Oscar

Forwards - L.Messi, C.Ronaldo

Strikers - F.Torres, R.Falcao

Can you help me to set up a formation which I can constantly use and stick to it in every games?

I would like to have a stable and constant formation so that my team can get used to it, bring out the styles, and I don't have to do a lot of changes.

Thanks.
