    Pulled the trigger on 2 icon SBC’s and got Rijkaard/Inzaghi.

    Would have liked some usable players to play with for a week or two but Not too fussed, saved about 100k for when they go into R9 and Gullit, correct-ish positions as well.

    Also stocked up on 4m coin worth of 85-91 rated informs, 85-91 rated base cards and an inform Brazilian/Dutchman for every position in case they throw in a full nation inform curveball

    Think I should be all set for them to come out now except for the 83/84 rated squads which I’ll but the 83/84 rated cards when they return to normal price.

    Also still heavily undecided which icon CB to pair Rio with. Has to be an Icon or a peek CB and I’m assuming TOTS Stones or whatever other PL TOTS CB won’t be up to scratch with someone like Desailly

    Picked up 90 Nesta on the cheap, have been pleasantly surprised. I've only played a few games with him, but he has been a brick wall at the back in division 1, feels faster than you'd think with the 75 acceleration.

    Prime Overmars: 327 Games, 296G 269A - Played as a LF in ST, I love him!
    Prime Petit: 111 Games, 7G 23A - Played as CDM, is very reliable and rock solid
    Base Zanetti: 11 Games, 0G 0A - No one can get past him at LB!

    Prime Okocha and Prime Deco were crap for me - i traded in Deco and will be getting rid of Okocha if the opportunity arise!

    Just bought R94 for 2.8 mil :o never thought he would be that cheap. And he might rebound to 3.2 again

    So I got base Desailly earlier whilst getting Icon fodder, is he any good? I was planning on getting his prime but he honestly doesn’t look that much better than the base.

    There’s also the question of Maldini now as well, very tricky one.

    Finished prime Gullit! 600k or so left plus my T100 pack, R9 is next.

    Pretty shocked :blush: Can't believe I've got prime Ronaldo for a total cost of 2.85m before packs and 2.6m after packs (Didn't get anything great back apart from Ozil in last 100k pack, but I did pack Birthday Florenzi in my 100k pack from rewards earlier :joy:)

    For anyone wondering where I saved coins I Had a prime VDS that I used that cost me 205k a few weeks back. Got Deco last week for 170k. Got 87 Zanetti for about 150k using the likes of 88 RVP and Schwienstieger. Finally I did two more base icons as I needed 5 total got 85 Petit and 85 Litmanen for about 260k each. Even though they are are two of the worst it still saved me around 80-100k each than buying of the market.

    The SBC seems to have gone up a few hundred k from when I started it so it seems I did it just in time :wink:

    I've got 180k. I could sell TOTY Kante and 88 Petit for roughly 2 mil. 87 Son for 230k if I had to, would probably leave me a few hundred k short but might be worth it whilst player prices are high for the 84's etc...

    How you guys liking Gullit? I really can’t click with him, he just feels like Vieira V2, exact same player. Don’t get me wrong I love Vieira but I was expecting more from Gullit. :/. On the other hand Prime Ronaldo is playing wayyyyy above my expectations, phenomenal card

    Decided to go ahead and do sbc for prime Gullit aswell. Need to do 3 base icon sbc which will save coins. Obviously need a central icon so if I didn't get it in the first two packs I'd have to buy the 3rd as I couldn't risk it....

    Did the first one and boom cf 87 Bergkamp which I can convert to cm. Cost me 170k as I rinsed my club of bronze and silver players to get about 20 82-85 packs which got me the 84 squad for free etc.. saved 200k already rather than buying of market . He will go into the central icon sbc unless I pull another central icon who is lower rated in the other two packs.

    88 Petit is up for sale and will sell toty kante to fund it. Hoping with a bit of luck to be able to get petit back within a week

    Got pretty lucky did 3 icons for sbc fodder, got the central one I needed first go. Bergkamp 87. Other two 88 Nesta and 89 Van Basten! Pretty happy about that because of the ratings. Nesta and Van Basten cost me 290k each and Bergkamp 170k. Probably saved 350-400k already of the SBC price :smile:

    More luck than when I did Prime Ronaldo sbc getting 2 85's and a 87 icons

    Only read bad things about him on xbox section :(
    If you want a CB I recomend you to try Rijkaard. I never expect him to be that good

    The 90 was very good, but his pace can let him down against meta strikers, when they get in behind. Everthing else about the card was quailty, couldn't fault any other area.

    Yeah agreed, not really getting too much out of Gullit atm personally but he is a bully like Vieira so guess i just have to give it time.. i'm only using him at CM so

    I've revised my opinion on 90 Nesta. I tried him for a few games a couple of months ago and hated him so I'm not quite sure how I've ended up buying him again but here we are.

    I've used him for ten games now, mostly WL but all online and he's great. Very little is getting past him and TOTY Bonucci, the positioning of both is incredible.

    I'm giving serious thought to doing the prime when prices settle down a bit.

    Would anyone be good enough to share your thoughts on 91 Maradona? How does he compare to the prime? No CF I've used comes close to how much I enjoyed the prime Maradona loan, including 91 Ronaldinho, and I can get the base Maradona now if I sell ADP, Nesta and TOTY Bonucci but I'm unsure as my team is genuinely playing great and is very well balanced the way it is right now.
