I have a few questions for you experts my friends.
First of all, in order to understand what I´m looking for you need to understand the type of player I am.
I´m an average player who nowadays only concentrates on SB. So I try to play those 40 and something games and that is all. I never play on-line. So the AI is my only opponent.
My tactic is the 4-3-1-2 and my best result ever was last week, playing all games and getting Elite 1 with a little over 90.000 points. Usually I sit around Elite 2, missing 4 to 8 games every week due to work on weekends.
This is important: I never use skills as I really suck at dribling and when I shoot I never care if I´m using the strong or weak foot.
This is my current team.
I realized that Rui Costa´s workrates make him play deep and I´m thinking of using him as a CM instead. Deco will go as I don´t like him, so I´m thinking of making the Petit 90 SBC.
Anyway the new configuartion will be something like this.
So for the 3 spots available I have 3.2M to spend. One of those positions must be a SBC Icon player as I have Deco ready for it.
Considering that skills are not very important but weak foot is, what do you suggest for those spots? I guess the CAM must have high workrates since the M/M of Rui Costa wasn´t working at all in there.
Also, since Overmars is not the strongest man as a Striker, should I go for a stronger option as the other striker?
I have so many doubts that I need your expert advice in these matters.
Thank you for reading and thank you for all the help!
Lewandowski as other striker. Prime bergkamp as your cam.
Thank you for the advice Thamightyboro.
Forgot to mention that the only instructions I use are overlap for the FB´s. So I need a real Defensive midfilder in tha central position. I have been using Vidal who excels in every departement except for 2. His high workrates make him out of position in some occasions and I really feel I need a taller and omponent player in that position. Petit 90 or Blanc 85 comes to mind. Of course I would love Prime Vieira but his SBC price would kill most of my budget.
Also Berkgamp has the same workrates of Rui Costa if I´m not mistaken. In fact many who have used him criticizes his abbilities as a CAM but raves about the striker position. But he is not that strong as a striker, especially besides Overmars.
I have used Lewandowski in the past and I realize I needed a little more acceleration maybe, which makes me wonder if Suarez 93 wouldn´t be more suited in that striker position.
As I said before, so many doubts!
I would sell Overmars and buy 90 Ronaldo and either 87 Crespo or 88 Sheva. (I use Sheva and Ronaldo and they are great, have never used Crespo but heard good things about him)
As to the CDM spot, any cheap but solid Bundes CDM would do it, I would not invest heavily in that spot, rather spend money upfront.
Thank you for the reply. I have thought about ADP but for the CAM position, the Prime would have the same issues as Rui Costa because of the M/M workrates. I think the 87 version would work better here but I´m reluctanct abouth strength since Overmars is already lacking in this department.
As a CDM, as I said before I think a taller player would work best ( I may be wrong). Bakayoko is an option but I would have Chemistry issues and I never change formations in the beginning.
CR7 is an option for sure (used him in the past) but 2 players on 7 chemistry as strikers? Can´t I do better than that? Already in psicoligical payne to use Overmars on 7
I´m not sure if I´m the Jesus Type of player. Everyone raved Musa Futmas (that I´m using right now as you can see) and I find him very average since I don´t dribble and therefore can´t seem to exploit his speed.
Thank you for the advice Galayn. Really apreciated.
Can´t sell overmars as he came from the SBC At the most I could use him on another SBC.
Ronaldo is very expensive. An option indeed but it would kill almost all of my budget. If I would use Deco and Overmars in a SBC, I think I could get Prime Henry way cheaper than Ronaldo. Maybe an option, but still laking another striker and CAM. I don´t think I would have the budget for both poistions after Henry
Forgot to mention another important issue since you mention it... I never manage to do finesse shots or passes. I´m that average of a player So it could be the best player in that department and would be totally wasted in my "hands".
So I realize I need good ofensive players with a good weak foot, a raw shot. Finesse and skills are wasted on me.
At least I manage to remeber to do driven shots, but as we all know it doesn´t work 100% in SB. All those ackward shots out of the stadium, righ in front of the goal
I see ... look, I am an average player too (actually, less than average tbh) and notwithstanding what you say makes sense, I would still suggest you consider Ronaldo, he was a real game changer for me, especially in SB for some reason (and I an not a skiller). And if you don't like him as much, you can always resell him, unlike SBC Henry.
Maybe do the Petit SBC and as someone suggested try Raffael at CAM?
Ha had that today a 2yd over the bar by taison.
Considering what has been discussed, and also putting a little of myself into it , I came with 3 possible options at this point. Feel free to step in and give me some more ideas
What do you think? What would you choose?
