    Yeah seen others have similar joy with him mate. Just wasn't doing it for me at all. In fairness I don't think the 20 games you get on a loan is enough. I also didn't like him enough irl to persevere with him. Although I was at his debut for Blackburn when they played Hibs in a friendly. We chanted what a waste of money, shows how much we knew lol.

    haha quality mate ! hes just an all time great im a united fan but loved him as a player, his finishing on this game is just insane as it should be !

    He really should have signed for United when he had the chance. Would have had the medals to match his goals.

    agreed mate i dont think he regrets it though so fair play to him i guess ha

    Well he would never admit to regretting it, but..... lol

    Of all the English Legends I would have liked to have seen Lineker back. His Prime could have been excellent.

    Tried engine hunter and engine again on Shearer. Slow, sluggish can't turn and gets dispossessed all the time. To slow to sprint on throw balls to sluggish to dribble.
    If you get him free in a good position he will score, but the problem is that you can not create chances with him alone

    Did rui Costa, Hagi, déco and now puyol and Shearer.

    I wouldn't recommend puyol or shearer. Either do rui Costa or wait for another prime icon to drop.

    If you having a hard time making coins, maybe rather buy an icon, then bury your coins in untrade able players

    and btw shearer > rui costa had both and if you want a CAM who cant shoot get rui costa

    My rui Costa finishes almost every thing in the box successful. But I just can't get Shearer in the show. Stats looked similar to nif icardi which plays great, but Shearer just doesn't work

    must be you mate especially with your comment of getting him to the spot of scoring his positioning is insane

    In a 4411 as ST he couldn't hold up the ball in order to lay it off for the CF. In any 2 striker formation he drifts wide no matter what instructions or he doesn't make runs at all.
    I used to play WL but now focusing on SB on legendary. Don't know what I'm doing wrong

    I had 89 shearer and I loved him, but in no way would I recommend you to spend 90% of your coin total on his untradeable prime.
    It's a good card, but with your coin balance it is better that you use a tradeable icon. You will accumulate more coins and will be able to sell the tradeable one and upgrade to a better icon. With the untradeable prime only way you upgrade is if you trade him another prime SBC, those that require icons are 300-500k more expensive at the very least.

    All in all, I suggest you get the 89 and see how you like him. Then decide for yourself.

    Its your ultimate team, so if you really like Shearer. Just do it. Make him tick, make him work, thats also a nice challenge in itself. Some players work for player A but not for player B.

    Do you use instructions on him? What chem style? What is your Custom tactic ? Those are all factors
