Good morning gents..

As per the title, have been sat on a good number of untradeable players now for sometime, decided to finally go for a final Icon SBC and use the packs next week but here is my dilemma......

I could do Rio or Maldini - would mean trading in 87 Desailly or keeping and just buying the cheapest icon and completing.

Larsson / Crespo - Not 100% sold on either.... but Larsson looks very good.

Petit - Bakayoko is costing me too many mistakes so id replace with Petit or do one of the above and buy back 85 Blanc as a 2 CDM.

I play a 3-5-2, will be picking up CR7 so will be left with maybe 900k...... So i can't afford a 'big' icon' hence the above

    I'm in a similar boat, I have an untradable Kluivert to ditch and a few others such as swap Ibra I'd be prepared to lose but nothing leaps out right now. Looking at those needing one icon I'm tempted by Blanc but not sure.

    As for your original question,Larsson is great and worth it if it's cheap enough for you but there'll be better TOTS under 400k probably.

    Players are so confused they're even defending outside the pitch.

    but then Bakayoko is utter trash for me! Baby blanc still worth 300k all day long you think?

    Still loving Blanc, doesn't feel out of place next to Prime Guillit.

    have to say both him and FUT Birthday Florenzi are notably missing in my team ATM. Florenzis recovery pace was absolutely incredible and Blanc 100% (at least IMO) plays well above his stats. Its a nice problem to have don't get me wrong...

    Do you think Blanc would suit a CDM role in a 3-5-2? The bonus is I can then get CR7 on full chem.... playing next to Prime Rijkaard

    Absolutely agree with this. I ran 352 for the past few WLs, granted I only play about 20 games a weekend but he was also great there, couldn't say he's any better or worse in a 352, 4231, 41212 or 4312.

    Thanks @gabriel1990 just assumed it can't make much more of a loss surely! Seems minimal risk I think. Have missed him in my team for sure! Nice pick up though being fresh!

    I swear he was 304ish earlier today as well, so either dumb luck or he'll tumble more and leave me feeling bad hahahaha

    Yea. Last few days he went up and down in price real quick. I think its a good addition to any team if you don't have Vieira and Co. in midfield. Really solid, good heading, good shot and defends really well. That defending stat is all lies

    i'm hoping what with him and Rijkaard at CDM it will shore things up a bit and stop (well lessen) the wayward midfield distribution!

    Larrson and petit are both quality. Id probably suggest petit as the upgrade from baka should be significant

    This thread had spurred my on to complete Crespo and from the 83 squad jumbo gold out walked TOTS Giovinco!

    Now, to keep or sell. I wanted to try him but have Gomez untradable in that spot now. I'm also worried a potential tradable SBC tonight will kill his value.

    There's no source for a tradeable. EA have said there will be league TOTS SBCs on Sundays and Tuesdays people are guessing that Tuesdays will be tradeable.

    I agree with @Gorda, I'd sell now.

    Nah, I'm keeping. I'll shoe horn them all in somehow. 100k loss isn't a big deal at this stage and it'll be nice to have another first owner card in the team

    Edit: Welcome Hernan! I don't think 300k (+untradable Ibra) is too bad for Crespo and Gio.
