Kroos or Gündogan

Hey guys,

I need a quality German CM for my 4-5-1 (2) squad. Currently I'm using Castro - Khedira - Schweinsteiger.

All but Castro do a pretty decent job. Castro however feels a bit... meh... you know...

It's an all German squad so Gündogan or Kroos are the obvious candidates... Can't buy both though because I'm poor as ❤️❤️❤️❤️.

Share your thoughts. Speed isn't that important. I'm kind of a patient-passers not one of those pace-goofheads. How do they feel, work on off/def and so on...

Bundesliga CM's are out of the question... I already have a Bundesliga squad with 3 CM's.

cheers

    Haven't tried Kroos, but Gundogan was tired af after like 60-70 minutes.

    Both waaaaaaaaay over-priced imho. Better off waiting a couple more days if you're really that poor. Both should drop a pretty good deal by BF.

    I have Kroos and I've played 225+ games with him. He's great to use.

    His pace isn't noticeable in that position to be honest. He passes perfectly short or long, has a wonderful shot and his corners/free kicks are great.

    I've replaced a lot of players and upgraded but I wont get rid of Kroos. If you don't mind a player not being fast he's technically one of the better players to use.

    well, 60-70 min. are indeed not exhilarating... Hows Draxler? The left CM is the offensive one anyway... even though his defensive stats suck big time... I tried Stindl there, who did a great job for me as a CAM in another formation, he felt odd...

    sounds sweet. Hows his stamina? Good for more than 60-70 min.? I used him in Fifa 16. He ran out of breath pretty quick... Schweinsteiger and Castro have the same problem though, so I already have two subs on my bench...

    Because of his pace I don't sprint too much with him or make long runs so he usually lasts about 60-65 minutes to half stamina.

    I've never seen his Stamina as an issue. I think it's high 70s?

    I've been subbing him off about 70 mins in the WL for Nainggolan though just to sure things up.

    Off topic: What percentage of players are in Div 1? I'm currently in Div 2 with 81-83 rated teams and going insane because I can't move on... that's why I'm looking for a quality CM too add the magic touch ^^

    good idea, his shooting sucks though... I can try to use Schweinsteiger as the offensive cm and Can as the intermediate... Schweinsteiger scores on a regular basis with stay back instructions.
