Packed him from the SBC. What is the general consensus on him?

Should I keep him, or use him for the next SBC?

    I'm hoping to buy him so going to keep an eye on this thread!

    Unless he played [email protected] in game I don't think I'd be trading him in. Not until the ultimate TOTS at least.

    Looks a sweet, sweet card though.

    4* WF, Good WR's for a CDM, Incredible stats.

    His PTG card has been great for me. Possibly my fav (and surprise ) of La Liga midfield players this FIFA. So just hoping if I buy him the card isn't a dud.

    I play him as my LCM on Stay Back, and he’s great. Not the best at intercepting, but really good at catching and tackling opponents.

    I love his TOTS Card, use him as a lcm with 90 gullit as the rcm and either TOTS casermiro or matic as the cdm. Not sure who I'd upgrade him for tbh, does everything so well. Def give him a try out

    I packed Casemiro too, wanting to put Saul alongside him as RCM .

    All comments I've read so far have been positive.

    Yep, at least give him a few games before making a decision.

    Was planning on doing that for sure, but was curious to see what others thought of him!

    He is great, always in the right position whether you attack or defend. The only thing that might be concern is his height. I prefer to have someone tall like Fabinho or Luiz Gustavo that win all headers. But definitely give a try to that card, you won`t regret.

    I'm currently using Saul as the left CDM in a 4231 wide. So far so good.

    Wow! Really amazed by the response. Wasn't particularly fazed after being disappointed by Hamsik, but looks really promising!

    Use him as ldm in 4222 next to prime gullit. Thats an absolute rock solid duo. Both offensively and defensively excellent. Also love to have a left footed player on the left side. Perfect card. Slapped an hunter on him.

    I really like him,playing him as a second CDM not sure he has the physical presence to be a lone CDM for me. His shooting although good, isn't phenomenal so I won't be using him at CM as I have better options

    Played ing him RCM 41212(2) and he’s a machine. Very good defending and excellent attacking.

    I also packed him in the SBC, chucked a shadow on him put him at CDM - very happy with him so far, I've used his inform in the past and that was also pretty good too

    I've used IF saul fir around 500 games and is one of my best midfielders. Having tried all of la liga mids he is my favorite. Can do it all. I use him CCM or CdM with shadow

    I've just put him LCM and he is everywhere. Already got a couple of goals. Very complete midfielder

    I use him as CDM in 4141 and he is very good. I have him on stay back but he still gets forward. Do as you’re told Saul, you cheeky little monkey!! :lol:

    I've been thinking of buying him for the past few days, I think he would play like a cheap matthaus

    My update: I played with him ~30-40 games in 4312, 41212(2), 5212. the card is good, but he does not work as box-to-box midfielder due to his workrates. He`s neither a pure CDM. Finally I went back to 4411 with TOTS Fabinho and TOTS Rabiot as CMs.

    Pros: long shots, positioning, he can tackle.
    Cons: losing headers due to his height (IMO you need at least one big and tall guy in midfield), interceptions are not great.

    I want to check how he`ll work in a team with TOTS Partey (352 or 4231). Actually I`m sure that if you pair him up with a pure CDM (like Casemiro or Fabinho), you`ll enjoy this card. Just did not fit well in my squad.
