Given where we are currently in the games life cycle who has been the best CDM for you? With the exception of TOTY Kante of course....... Who do you rate as the best lone CDM?

Looking at the final piece of my team jigsaw, just sold TOTY Modric, he is decent but doesn't warrant what i paid for him, not to mention hes spiked following the removal of the requirements for this WL!

RCM i have TOTS Goretzka and LCM I have TOTS Talisca..... CAM is Prime Gullitt!

My Budget is about 400k though it would be nice to not have to use it all!!

    Would Allan be an issue (height wise)?

    Try 88 Vierra and thank me later, said a good man @Clancy to me. I can’t sell him since CDM with Pace, Physical, Defense and Attack can’t complain and moreover dude is a machine doesn’t get tied. Carried me in WL trust me it will make a difference

    Prime Bakayoko..

    Not even trolling, the guy is still a tank even with all the TOTS cards out there

    To be honest something is not right with that formation.. no mater what player you put with no instructions, it should be engine or shadow chem style in order to thrive

    Prime Rijkaard is a nightmare to play against.
    I used TOTS Pique though, start him on full chem in a 5ATB formation then move him there, as long you slap any pace boosting chem style he's fantastic. No one gets past him and he's great in the air

    If you're asking who THE BEST is, it's probably 91 Vieira, but with your budget go and get the 88 version. All the top players use him and with good reason. For the 'perfect' lone CDM you're looking for, you'll need height, WR, pace, strength and stamina - Vieira 88/91 has all of the key attributes, so he'll control the game for you.

    There's a lot of good suggestions above for some alternative options that are still elite-tier. Prime Rijkaard and TOTS Fabinho are probably the other 2 elite options who you could consider.

    If you are intent on saving coins, you could go for TOTS Gustavo, TOTS Casemiro or TOTS Matic, but they're a small rung down from the guys above

    Not at all... I thought it would be, but I was gladly disproved

    Allan for me.

    Allan is the value pick. Gustavo is very good if you prefer someone bigger

    It isn't Vieira on a coins basis, he's far too expensive in comparison to the tots cards.

    @Imtnt you're absolutely right, it just wasn't functioning for me, at all. Bleeding goals, had my worst losing streak this FIFA if 5 on the bounce (not to mention only 1 goal scored!!!) so went back to my ild fave the 3-5-2.

    many many thanks for all your helps gents, as always its hugely appreciated. Tried TOTS Allan, very impressed with him. Great card for a fraction of the price of the likes of TOTY Kante, 88 Viera etc.

    Anyone else noticed an increased occurrence of the 'player passing to themselves' issue where they just kick the ball forward after an 'x' pass to nobody and run onto it themselves?

    use bakayoko and you are golden. FUT 18 is a joke.

    I said Prime rijkaard earlier and after completing Ndidi yesterday, I can honestly say he would also be great as a lone CDM or paired with someone. Him and rijkaard are controlling the midfield for me

    93 Gustavo is a complete tank, perfect work rates, height, etc, needs a Hunter or a Shadow on him and you are good to go
