Have a decent amount of high rated cards from the various league SBCs and a few untradeables like Mertens from different packs. Half thinking of dumping them in a prime. Which one of the cheaper ones is worth it at this stage?

    Zanetti doesn't require am icon and is one of the cheapest to do I think. If you have enough untradeable players then you'll get it close to free

    Maldini, only requires 1 icon and you can easily do the 88-rated squad (which costs ~200k according to futbin) close to free if you have a few high rated cards+some TOTS.

    Larsson is very very cheap. You can prob do him and Zanetti. This way you get 2!

    Thanks for all the suggestions lads! This one sounds appealing though. Do both of them still stack up this far into the game?

    What about any of the former Liverpool players? Planning on buying my annual club team once this world cup hype hits. Can't stand Owen personally but it'd mean he'd probably get more of a run than other primes if I did him.

    I've not used him myself but i've heard good things about Litmanen

    Larsson is in my main team still. He's incredible even still.

    Zanetti is just great value for coins atm

    If not enough for Dinho Gullit or R9.. i'd go for Larsson or R Carlos. Some will fit Firminho :)

    I have an idea.. Go for the cheapest, open packs, then throw him in a better icon SBC.

    I done him used him for a while and willed him to be good but he’s terrible. Put him into prime Rio too. Now when I come up against him my tactics are shell the ball over his head for Son

    If you're asking which prime icons are 'worth it', unfortunately you're only looking at Gullit/R9/Maldini and the other elite-tier icons - as they have few TOTS alternatives who will outplay them. Also, many of the icons are now cheaper to just buy as tradeable items (than their SBC).

    IMO, forget guys like Larsson, Crespo, Shevchenko even though everyone raves about them. There are so many TOTS cards who are just better options. I say this as someone who currently has 6 icons, but understands that TOTS offers better cards for cheaper.

    Other than Zanetti, there unfortunately aren't many cheap prime icons who are worth their price anymore.
    Serie A TOTS has a host of elite players for 200-300k mate, many with great SM/WF and traits just like the icons. Perhaps look to save up for a star player if you really want to get rid of your untradeables - Maldini prime is a great option who you'll never need to replace

    @Stevie_G

    How’s Maldini? I just did him to replace Rio. Is M a lot better than F? What chem card did you place on him

    Only used the 92 Maldini myself but decided to sell him when TOTS Chiellini came out. I've since sold him too, running Koulibaly TOTS just because I find him a fun player in-game (his legs are just massive, he eats attackers up!).

    92 Maldini was great, used an anchor on him as I wanted to boost his strength and a shadow was a waste on his defensive stats (they all go to 99 with an anchor). The 94 prime is a little quicker, he'd be absolutely fantastic.

    I'm still using Prime Rio as he's untradeable and he's vital for chem links to Telles/Koulibaly. However if I had the choice I'd say Maldini would be better, partner him up with a real physical CB (Koulibaly, Benatia) and you're set

    Appreciate the replies lads! Think I may hold tough on the SBC but will try Litmanen once I pick up the three Pool attackers.

    Checked futbin earlier. 800k for salah and I was giving serious consideration to getting him for 1.3 or whatever last week. :open_mouth:

    zanetti is also terrible, his 50something jumpings made him unusable for me.
