    Some are still good, like Blanc 85 for PL teams because there's no good CMs in PL, and for hybrids.

    No, not at all. 86 Vieira is as good as his other 2 cards imho and used all of them. 85 Blanc is superb, 87 Desailly is also. 87 ADP is immense, again i prefer him to his other 2 higher rated cards. So there are 4 there that will still be very good. Don't forget a lot of TOTS cards (the vast majority actually) don't play to their stats based on previous years and will still have a lot of flaws that their lower rated base cards will have.

    Tots aint all that, yes you Can build a High rated squad of tots for cheap, but they probably wont play like it...
    last year i build a eresdivisie/ligue 1 tots squad, and it was trash.. despite being 87-88 rated

    Maybe the reason for that was the coveted composure stat that remained the same as their low rated nif. This year it gets a big boost too. That's why some 81 and 82 rated informs play so well this year.

    CBs like Desailly will be class all year. With Shadow chem, he has mid 90s pace and almost maxed out defense stats. It won’t get much better than that for a CB, only real benefit of TOTS CBs may be Agility and offensive stats, otherwise Baby Desailly is more than good enough with his Defensive skill set.

    I'd say a large majority of icons are useless during TOTS, the top tier cards are fine but why pay 300k for an icon when there's a TOTS that costs 100k with better stats

    Nah... I think my 85 Blanc is staying still end game. Had him tradeable for a good 700ish games, did the baby icon sbc and packed him, happy with that bit of profit and a player I can keep

    I think you could be close to affording a prime pires or prime deco for around 400k

    because minor leagues players don't have traits like icons or big leagues superstars

    and they weren't trash but everyone had TOTS so you had to play against even better teams

    Well my own ability is one thing, but when the card doesnt feel much different than its NIF, the Big boost feel most like a scam :)

    Don't do it, probably the only baby icon ST/CF worth buying is ADP 87. There are many better non icon strikers for the same money, and the prices are still falling.

    Likes of blanc, ADP, desailly, pele etc will still be useful for sure.

    The good ones like Ferdinand, Blanc, ADP, Desailly and so on will still be worth it. People forget that while you can get some compareable TOTS for cheaper from the small leagues, you will still need Icons to link them into a good team

    Blanc and Maldini are the only useful cheap baby icons worth the price imo. People like baby crespo already have no end of informs with better stats for almost a tenth of the price.

    Not counting Ronaldo and Maradona baby etc. They are still very expensive and somewhat worth it I guess.

    Will be interesting to see this year if it makes a difference, i remember last year the likes of Hummels and Stindl were Amazing for the price in my Bundes team with 91 and 83, whereas Werner was still trash despite all the boosted stats having 54 composure.

    What about Bergkamp?? His 87 looks amazing for the same price as Crespo or Hernandez

    a lot of TOTS players do not live up to their stats people forget that every year

    meanwhile several ICONS play better than their stats
