    Toty Messi
    I only used him once in a draft, but he was phenomenal. Played him off chem at CAM, so maybe I should be regretting not getting his TOTS.
    But for whatever reasons, he was either just out my reach, or didn't fit my team at that time when I had the coinage

    solid suggestion mate, i was sat on a war chsest and like every damn FIFA game to date I was too tight and b!tched out pulling the trigger. TOTY Messi i really wanted to try but during the crash there was no place for him in my team (because im lazy and can't be bothered to switch formation IG mainly :D )

    While I am pretty happy with TOTS Firmino and TOTS Son up front I regret not doing the Prime R9. Had played with the base R9 earlier in the season and he was excellent, can only imagine how good the Prime is.

    I also had the misfortune of doing Prime Gullit about a week before the crash really happened, could have done him a lot cheaper if I had hung on a week.

    @Crowie same here where Gulitt is concerned, week before the hefty crash i done his SBC dammit!

    As for Prime R9, i did do him during the crash and despite scoring goals he isn't enjoyable to use, i swear some of his stats are lies.....

    For once I am happy, not to boast but I always seem to make bad investment decisions and lose money :D but during the crash I did Prime Gullit and couldnt have dreamed of affording him before that - cleared out all my unusable high rated players, and then got to buy and try CR7 - since sold him to fund a few players but really glad!

    I regret not doing the sbc of Maldini during the crash.. he was so good in drafts and I had lost my focus back then.

    I did Maldini during the crash and tbh NIF Ramos does the job just as good.

    Agree with you about the job to be done.

    Guess I didn't feel like I am missing a CB : with Ramos Tots + Pique Tots, with untradable Puyol and Hernandes(that was suprisingly good CB) as their subs.

    Nevertheless, Maldini is pure quality and a legend you would prefer to be your end game. Only Toty Ramos is the one that could make that feeling out of the legends - for someone whoever is not building ultimate team of one club/nation/league.

    I regret selling 98 Striker CR7 for 2.3 mill

    bought him for 1.5 mill, was pleased to sell for profit. But now all the players I bought after selling him have dropped, and he's gone up to 2.7 mill :'( :'(

    I’ve gotten all that I wanted during the crash. I was on holiday but didn’t hesitate to buy my teams back then. I got to try TOTS Neymar, Messi etc and sold for profits when prices moved back up. I even got CR7 99 at 2mio! (He prob was lower but thankfully I bought him)

    I got TOTS CR7 for 1.9m!!! I always knew it was just a ridiculous price for the best ST in the game!! So no....Didn't regret it at all as I bought the entire team at the right time. Only other player I wanted was SMS Tots...but his price always remained too high

    That’s the odd thing @Angy ...... his price is high.... which to a certain extent suggests he’s good (also to do with availability as well I get that.....) but I’ve never actually come up against him at all. TOTS SMS version anyway

    Vieira I hesitated on and should have bought.

    I did do Ronaldos sbc for less than 800k and bought 92 maldini for 290k tho so that worked out well.
