Bought TOTs Luiz last night, have been using his IF for about 300 games and I liked him so expecting same. However undecided on partner with. Partnered IF with Beckenbaur but keep conceding stupid goals as they both seem to split all the time. Best partner have found for him has been Dday Ogbonna, despite turning circle of a supertanker seems solid together. Will sell Becks to pay for partner but who and why?

    TOTY Ramos - best CB in the game

    How will that work with both having M/H work-rates? That may be the problem I have with Becks, will they both end up tearing down the pitch every attack

    Walker much better than his IF? Besides Becks have about 2.2m to upgrade and thinking may as well do it properly

    Yes, TOTS Walker is insane.

    Blanc because he's the best CB in the game. That's my combo that will be there until 18.

    Whatever you do don't use Rio, he is genuinely 100x worse than Smalling

    I couldn't agree more with Rio... Pretty much all M/M CB's are awful for me. H/M, and M/H have been MUCH better.

    Yeah like no exaggeration I can't think of a CB I've used all year that was actually worse than him. He's just awful ig

    Yeah Smalling plays 100x better for me, even Boateng plays better for a fraction of the price. Hurts to say being a United fan.... I have seen a lot use him but he is either out of position or not making the tackles when needed.

    Yeah I found his defensive positioning to be the main thing I hated about him. He was never in the right place. Blanc never puts a foot wrong for me and is always in the right spot, not to mention he's 100x better on the ball.

    I've been mulling over experimenting with TOTS Luiz and Blanc.. loved Blanc since I bought him in next to Desailly, wish I had tried him sooner... that Luiz card just looks incredible though. Real destroyer.

    you'd have to be fine with being aggressive at defending, both have the pace to recover though

    Yeah it took some getting used to, you have to switch to your cb almost immediately or you're getting caught out. Like you said though luckily the pace is there to make up for it. Actually thinking of pairing tots Azpi with toty Ramos, I do find Luiz to be further up compared to Ramos.
