    Should I sell 87 Del P for 89 Hagi and 85/88 Rio?

    I haven't used ADP but I'd say yes for 88 Rio and Hagi

    If you haven't used ADP then you can't really comment... it's a definite no from me, ADP is one of the best icons ingame this year.. any version

    Well I can and I will comment lol iv used prime ADP and he is amazing but I'd go for Hagi and Ferdinand as I believe it would add more to the team going back and forward

    You can comment but you really shouldn't because its bad advice...

    Hagi is absolutely awful compared to ADP and while Rio is very good (Prime) any defender can do what he does for a fraction of the price e.g. 4 examples from different leagues (Bailly, Boateng, Ramos, Thiago Silva)

    Im pretty confident that henry for me is the best st i ve used so far. Btw the games played and goals scored should have been better since im getting so many rage quits after henry is doing hat tricks before half time. Problem is im gonna miss him cant do his sbc atm.

    Pro player, Arsenal fan Tass only rates him as an 8/10. Haven't used Henry myself, that isn't a great rating for such an expensive card.

    Ive tried pele, 90 r9, dhino that everyone is raving about here and havent had the results i get with henry. On a side note my main st is prime hernandez which also outperforms the ones i mentioned except henry.

    Ah well, if Henry is working for you, don't change a winning formula mate. Hernandez has to be the best value for coins icon, don't think any other icon striker has as many traits and specialities.

    I disagree completely but i respect you opinion. I find hagi is fantastic. Prime ADP was nothing special for me. Your opinion is not the be all and and all please respect other people opinions and don't be so rude...just a thought buddy

    Just played against Prime Schmeichel. I scored 7 and he made two saves. Terrible keeper

    Been keeping an eye on 90 Bergkamp as I was looking to buy him. He's gone from just over 1 million to now the cheapest being almost 1.3 million. This due to the lack of packs being opened?

    How is 86 Vieira compared to Pogba? Worth the extra million?

    You said all versions are better than hagi and claimed my opinion wasn't valid because I haven't tried any ADP and I have in just saying I would change it up. Would be better to see his whole team tho

    Lads I've gutted my club with all 88 87 players etf, selling players like Kante, De Bruyne, Messi etc that I don't need

    I have enough right now to get 90 Gullit finally! Can't wait to use him this WL even though I'm paying 4.1m for him and the most expensive player I've bought ever is CR7 for 1.5

    Can't wait to use him in a few hours playing CAM behind CR7 and 86 Larsson

    90 Gullit is **** so dominant isn't he?

    This is my team now

    xaHnNVB.png

    Thoughts? Only have 100k left after selling all my top tier 86-88 cards plus some IF cards. Gutted my club to get 90 Gullit :D

    Don't think I can make much improvements at this stage can I? Only have 100k left like I said hahah. Can't wait to use 90 Gullit.

    Looks incredible how is nesta? Honestly i would probably play Sokratis over him he is a monster
    Nesta is really solid, his agility lets him down but his def plus physical is really good so I'm going to keep him until the next icon CB SBC

    Iv just got 88 Maldini in and play him off chem he is fantastic I had SIF Mustafi before that and he was amazing then I realised when I got Maldini he actually was just ok and Maldini makes him look so average

    88 Maldini at 7 Chen better than 88 Nesta? I just hate maldini's strength and Nesta js so strong

    I haven't used Nests tbh but I run an anchor on him and his strength is spot on

    How is 90 Rio compared to the others? Big upgrade? Worth a Mil?

    Others say no I say yes. He has a unique body type (unique things in this game are very good as EA tend to overrate them due to them going out of their way to give it to the player so it's not a waste of their time)

    Played over 100 games with him now, don't think I've lost a header with him, always in the right position and he's basically a maxed out card with Anchor chem on him.

    However, saying all of that, I only got him because the rest of my team is perfect and I just needed an addition. If, depending on your formation, you don't have a(2) very good striker(s), CAM and an elite DM then upgrade those positions first.

    Thanks, this has helped, i think ill invest elsewhere first, just need prime bergkamp to release and that will make like a little easier

    If you're going to use him as a CDM then use Anchor. His passing is already great for a DM and Anchor gives a bigger boost to jumping/heading/aggression which is important for a DM (+ the pace boost is nice).

    Yeah he will be a CCM, so will be using him more defensively. Think I’ll throw anchor on him, that pace with his height looks immense in that role

    I used to Hunter and Shadow everyone but i think now id run an anchor on him. Iv noticed chem styles like maestro are much better on certain players

    I was looking at getting him for the CCM role also in my main 4321 team. I really just want him to make more hybrids. Ha. But he looks amazing for that role, especially if you surround him with players like Tolisso, Vidal, Goretzka types as the other CMs.

    Yeah I’m looking forward to giving him a run, will have Nainggolan on one side, and surprisingly enough Scream Perisic is a fantastic CM and will be on the other side. Should be a fun midfield to use.

    His pace is great so you couldn't go wrong with a senitel his finishing also really surprised me. I'd love him back but he is so expensive now

    I'm all set to complete Henry, Hagi, big Pete and Carlos when the scream boosts kick in, but I'm torn in wether to trade in Overmars or buy an icon for the 89 rated team for Henry? I think Overmars is great but would save me 400k, it's a tough call. Would mean sbc Promes would partner Henry, what would you guys do?

    I'm leaning towards just buying another icon as I really like Overmars...

    I love Overmars as an impact sub atm, hes really proving his worth and pretty much scores every time i bring him off the bench, how badly do you need to save 400k, can you afford to spend it?

    Yeah, I'm just gonna pick up a cheap icon I think. I never expected to like Overmars, I only did him because he was dirt cheap, and thought he would be useful down the line but he's been incredible. I've got the coins so it shouldn't be a problem, just means I'll have a little less to trade with.
    I'm just pleased that I'll have a team with 6 prime icons without spending a penny, didn't think it would be possible.
    Just have to get back on the trading grind for Maldini, Maradona, Puyol and Ronnie.
    The impossible dream...
