I love Del Piero. Was brilliant for me in 17, used his earliest Icon version and felt great... just curious as to whether i should go ahead with this or not.

Can imagine a few of you lads have got him already. Able to shed some light?

Would be used at CF in a 4-4-1-1 or striker in a 41212(2).

So then... do i or don't I?

    Are you using him in every single squad you make from here on until end of Fifa 18, if yes then do it

    One of those that depends entirely on you buddy

    Do you change teams very often?

    Will you be happy having to use him all year?

    Do you have the coins to build something good around him?

    If the answer to all those is yes (no for the first) and you're sure you want him then go ahead

    If theyres any doubt though I'd hold off, not like it's going anywhere

    I wouldn't personally.. I actually prefer the looks of his other two cards depending on where you need to play him..

    Just seen this. Hmm, leaves a dilemma. Could complete this for a good half a mil cheaper than his other cards would cost... but then it is untradeable.

    I hate SBC's. Give me a headache :joy:

    No matter how much he costs you, it will be too much.

    The 87 one is tradeable, got better workrates, 5 more pace and 3 more physical. We all know that pace and physical are the most important stats in Fifa so that combined with the better workrates makes the 87 the best AdP imo. And you can sell it again :D

    Haha. You're not wrong about the pace and physical :smiley:

    I'm going to mull it over i think. Still in two minds really. I know if i get his 87 i'll probably just end up selling further down the line, chopping and changing squads all the time.. frittering away my coins on tax and chemstyles :joy: It's what draws me to this.. at least then he's going nowhere.

    87 >>>

    The only current one worth doing is Rui Costa imo.

    If it was 1 pace and 1 physical it might have been worth it just to have that 1st owner prime icon, but 5 pace is actually massive. Especially if you ever want to play him at CF or even striker.

    Funnily enough my first game yesterday (just wanted to test out Pogba), was against prime AdP, 7-0 to me after the first 45mins :D AdP seemed to be rather weak, my CBs just constantly outran him and pushed him off the ball, still sent the guy a nice message tho.

    Ive used both the 87 and now have the 92. Use a hunter on both. Ive felt no difference in pace and maybe a slight difference in dribbling.

    The 92 has an extra amazing finesse long shot though. 9 of my 12 goals have been scored that way.

    And the stamina and strength on the 92 is lower, but they where hardly amazing to begin with so the overall effect feels negligible to me.

    Ohh... both at cam. Plus havent noticed much difference between the med/med and high/med. But maybe i will over time after more games.

    I think he looks the worst of the lot.

    I hate loan players but in this situation, surely do the loan one give him a try for 20 games. If you love him do him, if he is meh, try the 87 and don't be locked into untradable.

    I was rocking 87 Crespo and Dybala up top yesterday.. Crespo had something ridiculous like 24 goals in 17 games.

    That trio tempts me

    was planning on buying adp anyway to keep and use all year so the fact i could do this cheaper than buying either was the main reason i did it in the end

    So I went ahead and submitted everything. As my wife pointed out over lunch, if i was thinking about it already I was going to do it anyway.. may as well save myself the mental torture of thinking about it and go ahead. She's always right :joy:

    Pulled Mertens and a few other decent little cards from the packs... considering what I already had at my club and the pack returns it bought the total cost down to around 700k.

    Might be untradeable but 700k for a 92 rated ADP.. I'll take it. Is basically half the price of his other cards ffs. Considering last year a lot of us, myself included, forked out over a mil for that SBC Luiz seems like a smart bit if business :joy:
