I've been thinking about buying him but his price tag is a bit steep is he worth the coins?

    I got him untradeable and really happy with that pull, also got a untradeable alaba and sandro beats him IMO.

    Best LB in the game, he's so good.
    84 phys is the thing that makes him insane in my opinion, and which is why he outclasses Alaba.
    Marcelo was never a match for Sandro in '18, since Marcelo's only got 78 pace which is too slow in my opinion..

    Looks like I'll get him then, I was also considering IF Ghoulam but Sandro's card looks too good.

    If his price is nothing to you then go for it, why wouldn't you? If you'd rather spend the coins elsewhere, Ghoulam is excellent tbf.
  • If you have plenty in the bank then yes. If you just have 100k then get IF Ghoulam and invest the balance elsewhere.

    I'm using Ghoulam and Lukaku and they are both great. Sandro is good but depends if you wanna spend the coins.

    I’ve had Sandro and IF ghoulam- the latter being preferred sold Sandro back to get ghoulam after thinking Sandro would be a good upgrade
  • Can’t see past Lukaku in my Italian squad very rarely gets beat for pace and offers a decent amount going forward

    lukaku is way better than ghoulam IF although ghoulam did score goals.
  • I bought my Sandro a while ago and had a shadow on him and he feels as fast as anyone in the game with or without the ball. If you do get him i would suggest going with a shadow even though he is already really fast. It allows you to rapidly bring the ball up the pitch after he easily snatches it away and be able to gamble a little on defense because he is so damn fast. Honestly best lb in the game imo and i feel he is miles better than Alaba. Though he is around 90k(xb), he is the best player at that position imo and will make your team better so i would say go for it if you have the coins.

    IF Ghoulam is a tank and a fraction of the price.

    I've bought him and played 2 games and he feels decent, his positioning seems great he made a few good interceptions plus he's very quick and strong. I had lukaku previously, he was good but I thought his passing was inconsistent and I also found myself in a goal scoring position quite often with him but his shooting was terrible.

    I did enjoy him but I couldn't warrant the extra price over the other LB's I could use.

    If you have the coins available then try him and see how he is.

    Lukaku is a monster, he chases down and stops everything!!

    Same as any player. Hes worth it if you have the coins without worrying.

    Personally there a much better places to upgrade a squad first - but if you have done the rest already, or have coins to burn - sure hes worth it.

    I always upgrade my fullbacks last (to top end players) UNLESS Im using a 5atb with fullbacks on always overlap. In that case you have a fast fullback that can pass/cross/score who also have great stamina. There arnt many of those so you have to spend the coins.

    Sandro is the best, fast, strong, agile and his crossing is superb...
