Which players surprised you this Bund/La Liga WL?

Following on from last weeks thread:

Positives:
NIF Fahrmann: Having played 600 games with Neuer, I grew sick of conceding rebound goals, with Manny parrying all the time to opponents. I parted with him for an inflated 160k, and replaced him with Fahrmann for 3k or so. The difference? Distribution only. Fahrmann is an exceptional goalkeeper. Better than Butland has performed for me. Only thing that lets him down is lack of a long throw.

IF Torres - Pleasantly surprised. Not only did this card make me a shed load of money through investing, but I rolled with him. He's very tall, very stocky, clearly has acceleration, and offers a great physical/technical combo. Solid finisher too. Shame he doesnt have 4* skills. One of the few I've seen do a scoop turn IRL. Recommended.

De Marcos - Pacey, and appeared to be VERY strong. Very good attacking full-back. Also made a mint on him Friday/Saturday night. I won about 100 of them on bids for 750-1200, and instant BIN sold them for 2100-2200. Easy money.

Negatives:
IF Jovetic - Harsh, but he started off a blinder at CAM. He then went to ****, and often or not drifted in and out of games. In games he influenced, he would score. His finishing is solid. In too many games he was a passenger though.

NIF N'Zonzi - Having used his IF, I couldn't believe just how awful his NIF was. Not great positionally, not a wall when it came to tackling. Really disappointing, so much so, I sold him mid WL.

Bakambu - Offered so little at times, other than to stretch the opponents defence. Most of his goals came on the counter from opponents corners when it felt like the game wanted me to score. Disappointed as he'd done well before for me.

    Again, didn't use him, but he was very good against me

    I had somehow never used Renato all year. He's very good for a 78 rated player...hype is deserved.

    I chose Muller as my ST between Bale and Reus (used Reus for about half of my matches, sold him for a while). Muller averaged .5 goals and .5 assists - all I needed him to do.

    Had 82 Casemiro in my club - was very good.

    84 Thiago has no stamina...same with 84 Isco. Subbed on Movember Loan Ric Rod for them most matches and he's a very competent CM sub.

    Oh yes, Reus is superb. especially at CAM. Definitely another positive. Same as Tah. He seemed to compliment Boateng more so than Varane, strangely enough.

    Vidal has been the only player who's been half decent.

    Personally thought Leno was the German Jack Butland. I really struggled against him. I also really liked Coman

    IF Torres - 14 games - 13 goals - 6 assists. Hes finishing was surprising for an 84 IF
    84 Asenjo - Made some great reflex saves
    IF Kovacic - Guy was everywhere from start to finish
    IF Juame Costa - Scored some bangers left foot cross goal and the pace helps out in defence

    Sif N'zonzi was really good, enjoyed him a lot.

    MOTM Casemiro was a beast at CCM in 4-3-2-1.

    Didn't expect too much as I've used the similar Med/Med defensive type mids before and they all disappointed. However, Casemiro sat there properly with Modric and Vidal either side, he wasn't a slouch in tracking back and can pass the ball effectively.

    IF Leno. Packed him last week so thought I might as well use him. Only down point is not having a massive throw. He never seems to parry anything back into the box and was consistent for all 40.

    All bundes keepers including neur are absolute pish bar totgs Fahrmann!!!

    Lewandowski sucks. IF werner much better.

    Toprak + if sokratis best cb pairing.

    Keita at cm is bundes Kante.

    Vidal is a beast. (can't believe I only bought him with 10 games to play)

    Also realised 4-3-2-1 is the best formation after months of playing thus game and never using it.

    MOTM 86 Stindl at CM.. played him RCM and his positioning and accurate assisting were just so crucial.. if only he had 80 pace he would he going for 125k at least

    Played the same mid, but TOTY Modric and 412122. Case at CDM. I was very happy with his play. Really surprised. Plays much faster then the pace states.

    Yeah I had the TOTY Modric in there too. He can actually tackle where the NIF can't :lol:

    Mov Gustavo was excellent in midfield for me.

    Never used Vidal, Sanches or Boateng all awesome for me.

    Didn't even surprise me :joy:

    Used him before when I spent a shed load of coins thinking he has to be good and he was dreadful :/

    I was thinking of doing the exact same thread.

    Vidal- Excellent midfielder, probably the best cm I've used. Scored a fair few clutch longshots for me. Sh*ts all over Sanches.

    Reus- insane, especially at cm. His shooting is just so satisfying.

    I got along far better with my cheaper Bundes team than I did my BBVA team.

    By no means cheap, but I forgot how good Messi was. I haven't used him since I got POTM Hazard and wow he is still amazing. Tempting to sell ADP and just use Messi instead
