He was my #1 that I wanted from the TOTS; but since I got Mahrez, now I'm looking to maybe adding Dele or waiting for the other leagues.

How do you rate Sonaldo this year vs. his 2POTM from last year?

Worse - not worth it unless you pack him for free.

    Two games with him and he seems good, but he doesn’t seem as lethal as that 2POTM from last year. For some reason his first touch has been a bit disappointing for me so far also. I’ll need to play a few more games with him to make an accurate judgement, though.

    That SPOTM last year was average.

    Game mechanics fit him better this year. Workrates ruined him last year.

    I have 600k sitting and a full trade pile of 84s - obv one more chance to pack him tomorrow but I've seen both up and down remarks. With Mahrez - its not exactly the same stats but he has 5* skills so I've got a pacey "wing" that I could put at forward on 7chem. Mahrez is also lefty.

    Just made me rethink dropping the majority of my liquid coins. I did think the 87 was pretty solid though. . .

    to be honest with the stat boost they gave him hes better than gold cr7, and reviews ive heard have been pretty good tbh

    I didn't use last years but bought this one at the weekend

    23 games, 21 goals and 16 assists so far and I'm not usually a prolific scorer. I've got him, Gullit and Sbc De Bruyne and keep having to remind myself that I can get the ball into the box before
    shooting occasionally

    Favourable response so far.

    @Orison @EddieFicio @TwoZebras (and any others) ... what would you say is a fair price then for the card, in context to where the market is at the moment?

    Lowest I've seen is 640k (2 days back) and hovering around the 670k mark. Is that fair value, as I don't think he'll drop that much with the next SBC?

    It wouldn't say he isn't worth it, Son is still an amazing card. It's nearly the same as last year's version. He has less strength and everthing else is just as OP.

    Paid 730 and don't regret it for a minute. Scores from anywhere when you don't expect it! An Elite level card.

    However, I have played him this year and he's amazing.

    Couldn’t care less tbh. If you want value for money you buy Martial for 2k or so, because Son won't ever do 200x as much.

    I paid 770k on Friday, sold for 690 Saturday night and bought him back for 620 Sunday during the day.

    Everything less than NIF CR7 is fine imo as that card is his main competitor.

    Just don’t listen to the people who voted without trying the card! Buy it.

    From what I remember, 2POTM Son last year was kinda strong. Tots Son is weaker than freaking Tots Mahrez. Makes no sense, but this is how it looks for me.

    I mean you can't ask for value for money as technically no special card is value for money :D I think Son is well worth it, all year I said that prime Henry's price is just dumb, but that's my personal opinion, for others Henry was worth it. But no card above 10k represents true value for money.

    This is why I stuck Architect on him. goes up to 94 Strength and is just an absolute animal.

    Tbh I got him for free so I've no idea about his value :D

    However after using him for 20+ games I'd definitely pay whatever his current price is. Complete game changer.

    Two strikers with 5* wf is the best @Orison

    I get what you're saying. At times very few special cards are worth it. Ofc the likes of TIF De Ligt is good value at 35k at present - thanks to TOTS only though. There are some exceptions.

    My comment was specific to "in context to where the market is at the moment" & "fair value". So, Aguero is 1.5M+ ... that's steep - SBC Henry / Maradona levels (after pack returns ofc).

    Seems like Son is therefore looking worthwhile for that price. No real Icons in his level, for that price.

    Didn't have his 2POTM last year so went neutral on my vote, had his 1st. I would find it difficult to see how the 2POTM can be anywhere near his TOTS card. It is simply insane.......I do agree that he does miss the odd sitter but that I think could be down to delay/connection....if I have smooth gameplay he scores......

    Plus your a Spurs fan, it should be a no brainer for you....
