Hi, I don't have fast wings to pass mans so I want my team to feed my strikers with through passes.. from air or ground doesn't matter... I've Adnan Januzaj, Nicuşor Stanciu, Adam Campbell, Jem Karacan and some regens. Which would be the best tactic for my team?
Try to pick wingers who have a good crossing attribute
Play your striker in his favorite role, it might help
If you are playing with one striker, he MUST have a good positioning and off the ball in my opinion, because he needs to find spaces and make himself available for his teammates.
Try to use the drill crosses instead of the floating one if your striker hasn't got good heading or jumping reach.
Use the individual player instructions for your wingers and instruct them to cross the ball to your striker.

Good luck :)
use a rigid or very rigid approach. classic 442 or 4312 if you have good midfielders, as you can use janudzaj or stanciu as a good AMC support. use one of your strikers in a more static role (it does not implicitly mean DLF, TM nor Poacher role, just use move into channels and hold position instruction together) and a more roaming role (this does mean AF or CF if he's good at crossing, or F9 or TQ if he has good passing abilities), but always in attacking duties if possible. this configuration will make both your strikers harder to mark. Use pass into space, and make your CM play with static roles and direct passing. hit early crosses also helps taking advantage of fast strikers, specially against advanced defenses. if playing the classic 442 use WM instead of wingers. play wider to allow space for your strikers to exploit in the middle. hope this helps.
