So i'm about to start this SBC and was wondering about what he would cost right now? I read something around 150K, is he worth this? And is this lower right now with BF coming?

    He's worth 500k in my eyes, by far the best player I've used

    He cost around 200k when I did it but that was a while back.

    He's 100% worth it though regardless of price

    Cost me 165k, finished it a couple of weeks ago. 100% worth it and is a fantastic player. Ended up costing me 80-85k after rewards

    Thanks, heard good things about him so that's why I'm starting now lol... was the 200k pre packs?

    Think he cost me 200k and I would pay double that.
    I'm looking to find another player that I can rely on as much as him

    Can somebody please explain why he is regarded as so good? I tried the normal version in draft and he was decent, is the SBC a major improvement? If so, why (talking about in-game as the face stats are of course improved)

    He can do it all, his only weakness is well being weak. I shove a dead eye on him and he can pinpoint pass and shoot from anywhere! His free kicks are ridiculous too, plus 91 pace

    Gracias Henstock! In terms of the SB, I understand that it would be incredibly expensive to do now. Do you have any idea? Have you done it recently?

    He's rapid which is obviously the first thing people look for, he's 4* 4*, can play anywhere from cam-striker effectively although you really should play him as a striker.

    He's agile and has an incredible shot, high passing means he links well with wingers or a strike partner and his set pieces are top notch.

    He also has very high balance so doesn't get pushed off the ball easily, I have him up top with sbc Jonas and they're a dream

    Don't think his price will drop that much as most mls player will still be kinda price fixed... unless you have the patience to snipe, which I unfortunately don't have, you can save a lot

    He's the best player I've used all year. Better than any legend I've used and any striker.

    I really rushed it and it ended up costing me 300k. Just smashed through it to get him.
    He pulls me through so many WL games and seasons games it's unreal.

    He's electric, pace, shooting and amazingly agile and quick dribbling. He does get knocked off the ball a lot, but that's to be expected. However, his runs are what make him stand out for me. Like no other player I've used he actually runs into space between defenders, give him a through ball and NOBODY is catching him. Smalling, Ramos etc not one of them will get hold of him.

    The only issue is he already has one IF, he's bound to get another at some point so would that IF match or exceed the SBC? Bare that in mind, if it's not an issue crack on because he's unreal.

    What team do you have with Jonas and Gio in? I've got Jonas, but cannot find a team I like him in.

    You Sir bring compelling arguments. Also, I do appreciate the pragmatism as I think you are right, his next IF is bound to match the SBC card and when considering that his first IF is 60k I do not see the SIF going for more than 80-90k (considerably more than the cost of the SBC). Decisions, decisions ...

    Cost me about 170k a month ago, that doesn't include my rewards from packs or the 20k you get back so he was probs 135k. On Black Friday some people may list the player for cheaper to get a quick sale so just be on your toes! Don't rush it otherwise the cost will skyrocket

    Finished it for about 110k before rewards a month ago.
    Don't do it all in one sitting space out the sniping for a few days, probably could have saved even more but I had sold up to do it and I was itching to play again after 3 days or market watching

    He's phenomenal though could have saved time and spent more if I knew how good he'd be. Use him as a cam or cf though he's so good at passing and shooting from distance he's perfect there and he's so quick you'll still be able to make runs through the defense

    40 goals, 22 assists in 36 games for me and have relatively cheap players around him

    In this game agility is just super important, especially against PtB. Seriously, if he gets the ball anywhere in the center, there is literally no way to defend him 1 on 1 because he turns so quickly. This then opens up angles for bringing others into play.

    He is basically the 85% version of Del Piero who is going for 1.5 mio.

    How much did SBC Jonas cost to do?

    if you're in no rush I'd recommend opening some bronze packs. Only reason I done it was because I had like 8 or 9 pages of bronzes/silvers from doing so. Ended up making 20k from the full sbc

    Might be worth giving a try, but how many packs did you open? AS most bronzes aren't that expensive and most requirements are 65+, wouldn't it be better to open silver packs @jamie ?

    I don't think we are in danger of him getting a second IF unless he does something special in the MLS semis/finals. If he doesn't the MLS is done until early next year so you won't see another IF from him until March probably.

    I think it ended up costing me about 250k-280k to do the entire SBC but I have always sold most of my cards so I didn't have a lot of MLS players in the bank to use as a starting point.

    I only came across his NIF card by chance because my first team was built with Italians and I would agree with everyone here... he is basically Messi for cheap.

    I have opened quite a few. I don't think it's possible to lose coins doing so though. I haven't anyway.

    @Tietherope Jonas cost around 220k

    I'm not sure how to post images of my squad from my phone or if it's even possible but it's a 41212 team with Jonas and Gio, I used to have Zola at cam but sold him to buy back during BF
