I've used his NIF and IF and liked both but is his TOTY a significant (170k worth) upgrade?

    He's amazing, his long shots are insane, his agility as well. Obviously has the speed to catch up when he pushes too much up the field

    Didn't like him that much. He felt slower than his nif which doesn't make sense. Was absolutely invisible defensively. His nif was great for me, actually defended/tackled well. His toty was another attacker and changed my team to 3 atb. Sold him and now using IF aurier who is loads better.

    Hmm that's what I was afraid of, hopefully if I do get him he doesn't do that for me.

    Zanetti is my favourite footballer ever but I'm a good 100k off him yet so I thought I'd try out Alves first.

    he's a great RM and RW, not really sure how he is at RB :lol:

    honestly, what @I EvO I said. i also haven't used Zanetti but Alves is a a great price for the talent you get.

    He's great for me...

    Fast, always in position (which seems against what everyone else says), great passing, great balance and agility, strong at defense

    Screw it, I may aswell try him out. If he's terrible then it'll just confirm Zanetti is my RB for the rest of the year.

    Very good dribbling, speed and long shots, still a bit weak and vulnerable in the air, I prefer Zanetti <3

    Who was your RCB and who was the midfielder on his side. I used all the RB and he is definitely the best. You just need to add coverage on that side to compensate his runs forward.

    In my team it'll be Fif Godin and Keane so they should have him covered

    Lol gullit and cannavaro and 90 godin at cdm That side was fine. It's just I don't really use attacking backs much unless they also have high defending wrs, like r. Carlos and zanetti. I just wanted to give him a try.

    Think I had a sentinel on him. I'm hoping Aurier gets another IF or I get enough coins for Zanetti again.

    Zanetti was great but Dani was like a Roberto Carlos on the right side for way cheaper. Long range free kicks were a positive with the 99 shot power.

    Ahh I didn't get a chance to try them out :/ maybe I'll give him another shot if I get the chance. The initial reaction was bad haha
