Hi I want your recommendation for my defence ..
I am in 3rd season with Dortmund and my CDs are : hummels , subotic, zouma and doria .
Should I buy Kirchhoff to replace someone of the above ?
I play standard 4-2-3-1 formation and zouma + doria despite their age seem to be responding pretty well to last season games (both above 7.5 rating)..
Hummels and subotic are solid and working also very well together ..
I really like Kirchhoff potential and i can get him really cheap but dunno if he fits in my defence ..
Maybe move him to middle as BWM(where I have kara, bender)?
Anyone can help me ? Please ..

You will end up with too many defenders and then you will be forced to sell to keep everyone fit and happy. Why change anything when it's working great?

Buy Kirchoff if you really want him and he is really cheap! loan out Doria for a season or two and you can sell him if he does not improve or bring him in to replace Subotic if you want to sell him and make a lot of cash off him!

That's a great suggestion!
By the way raikan from your experience ingame who is better between doria and Kirchhoff? (In case you had the opportunity to manage them both ).

I have played with both (Different saves though) and Kirchkoff was miles better for me. Plus the fact that he won't be a first teamer, because he can play DM too he makes a great option off the bench :)

I intend to play him next to hummels or subotics in the "speedy" -covering DC role..
Do you think he will succeed in this role ?

What about Zouma?

If you play with a very high line, his really good pace and anticipation should make him a really good covering CB (although I still don't think you should play him ahead of Hummels, Subotic and Zouma!),
but if your line isn't that high I don't think he will be able to get to speed quick enough to catch the attacker :)
