Take a listen now:


Make Milan Great Again

This week we picked the brain of FIWC UK Champion Robert Brewster who gave us his advice on how to play better with AC Milan.

Default Formation - 4-3-3

As many of the pro gamers will tell you, the key to success is a solid defence and defending is not something that this AC Milan team do particularly well. For that reason Rob Brewster recommends switching from the default 4-3-3 formation and using a more compact 4-1-2-1-2.

New Formation - Goodbye Ronaldinho

This formation brings Flamini into a key role just in front of the back four and offers an extra level of protection. Another defensive change sees Bonera come in at left back in place of Antonini.

In midfield Rob recommends replacing the captain, Ambrosini, with the flair and attacking threat of Robinho and swaps the departed Ronaldinho with the Dutch veteran Seedorf.

Up front is where AC MIlan really show their strength with the speed and skill of Pato combining well with the power and height of Ibrahimovic.

Let us know what you think of Rob's formation and line-up. If you want more tips then you can follow him on twitter.
