    Sold R94 for a profit and gone back to Henry. He’s a level above no doubt but ST’s probably the last position i need to upgrade, and Henry’s still more than capable

    Can’t wait to be let down on Thursday again!

    Good move i think. Tell me more about prime Henry. How’s does he rank for strikers in the game? 3rd behind ronaldo or lower down?

    I’d say they’re about level, probably give the edge to Ronaldo if i had to pick but there’s something about Henry that i like, he makes plenty of runs in a 4231 despite M/M and he just links the play up really well. Ronaldo’s the more clinical finisher but Henry’s finesse shots are probably the best in the game, his curve makes him deadly from anywhere inside the box.

    If you want an icon ST and won’t be able to afford R9, Henry’s the best you’ll get

    Cheers man. As an arsenal fan I should get Henry. CR7 doesn’t interest me this year (too many years with the same guy).

    I could get 90 ronaldo but Henry looks better.

    Does he feel clunky at times like his 90 does?

    I haven’t used the 90 so can’t really compare, but i wouldn’t say he feels clunky. He just has low balance same as Ronaldo so anytime someone touches him he’s probably gonna lose the ball

    @Bozza88 Ruud Gullit is the best player I have tried in the game. Top striker and midfielder in any position.

    Thankyou mate

    Which icon SBC is cheapest at the moment please? I’ve only done Rui so far and I don’t trust FUTBIN prices.

    Tempted by Overmars if he’s cheap as I would actually use him in WL unlike Schmeichel :D

    Seems like i bought everything way too early for the Prime SBC's, genuinely thought they would bring them out before Christmas and everything i bought could get for around 200k less if i bought now but aslong as i don't sell i don't see the loss so w/e..

    I have basically the 89 with icon, 88 with icon, 87, 86, 85, 84 rated squads all prepared plus a spare central icon and some untradable ones which i'll happily give up (Overmars, Deco and probably Hernandez if its Pele/R9)
  • Yea cheapest is probably Pete, but Overmars isn’t too much more i think and he’s a great card

    Yea he’s probably the card that’s surprised me most this year. Only did him for a future SBC but it was really hard to let him go lol. Basically doing the same with Pires now though Overmars is 10x the player he is

    Completed Deco for 450k before packs. Got nothing good but made back 40k back selling everything. Still worth it cheaper than buying central icon of market. Will be for a prime SBC along with Overmars 200k and Schmeichel 250k. Really tempted to complete Henry. Could do it for around 2.1m before the packs and that includes the 3 icons above. Would still have IF Son, 88 Vieira and then 400-500k left over to spend. Will wait to see who gets released on Thursday but will see :neutral:

    Just sold mines after 200+ games

    Game changer. 4 Star weak food is underrated. Scores and creates plenty goals just stamina lacks but rarely subbed. 5 Star skills kills teams

    I just wanted to add - Crespo 85 with Hunter is broken card. Bought it back yesterday. I have't tried lot of icons, just Bergkamp (terrible) and Larsson 86 yesterday and he puts in some goals, but the feeling of using him is nothing like Crespo. I remember some of the guys feeling disappointed after switching from Larson to Crespo, so misleading. And I have tried all the best NIFs like Ronaldo, Messi, Aguero, Neymar... Ronaldo is perhaps the only player in the game that can outperform this scoring machine. Every shot is a goal or at least hits the bar and keeper makes unreal save. Just give him the ball and shoot. So fast, big and agile. His running animation is in perfect harmony with ball. Not even Ronaldo gave me that feeling of godliness.

    I'm thinking about adding another icon for my second team, mostly about Van Basten and Kluivert but I honestly feel there is something wrong with this 85 Crespo and I will end up disappointed. He bangs 2-3 goals per game like it's the easiest thing in the world, this late in the game. His presence on the field is so noticable.

    This card is the joy of Fifa, if there is any.

    Good for u on crespo. I have tried the 85 for over 100 games. You are right about the shooting buy he just feels clunky and gets bullied off the ball by defenders for me. Changed to totgs mbappe and he is much better, still scoring like crespo but much more agile to dribble with and a tad stronger as well

    SBC Henry for 2m before packs? (That's everything added up including the icons) Have a few untradeables such as red Iniesta isco and eoe Pirlo. Plus saved money with the icons. Overmars 200k Schmeichel 250k and Deco 410k. All after packs. Would leave me 215k and players such as IF Son, 88 Vieira. Red Fernandinho, Red Goretska, Red Alessandrini, Sbc Koscielny and sbc rose, Bailly Valencia etc.. Plus an 87 Bergkamp I will sell Thursday. So 700k to improve team plus whatever i get back in packs. 100k at worst? Will wait to Thursday but what's everyone's opinion?
