Crouch and Defoe - Thoughts?

I've played 6 weekend league games and started Crouch in 4 of them and he's put away 3 really nice goals. (Due to his 42 jumping) Not one was a header. He's banged in a few really nice shots. He's actually pretty nimble and good on the ball. Good ole' Crouchy :).

Defoe, he's too similar to Aguero for me so he hasn't gotten to play yet. Anyone else try these guys?

    42 jumping is a joke

    I think it’s fair to think that most people on here would have given them a go for a few games for a laugh more than anything else

    OP. Not tried crouch yet but Defoes not too bad for what was a free card for me to complete. Lethal in the box and rapid. What more do you need :lol:

    Crouch has been really good.
    Scored a couple of nice goals including a header.

    Defoe seems to finish everything and his pace is very effective.

    Both seem very good cards so far.
    Only played a few games with them so far.

    I love people who are just on the forum to troll and post knee **** reactions. I wish posts got scored and if your post was bad enough you get insta banned.

    On crouch though, if he had any jumping I feel like he’d break the game. He’s seriously phenomenal. I mean he no Ronaldo but he is Crouch and a useable card. For me that’s enough. Haha.

    I'll definitely be getting them some time, I'll do the sbc tomorrow afternoon, they look like a fun strike pairing to build a team around.

    Looking at it though, I might be inclined towards the scream Crouch, rather than the sbc, the extra pace would be quite noticeable.

    @Davey Sprockett Crouch is just much better than I expected. With his agility so low, his reactions so high it balances out to very useable. His finishing is top.

    Still haven't tried Defoe much, lol.

    @cheers for the feedback, I really wanna give them a go now, might quickly pop the sbc now, I'm sure I've got all the requirements in my club, you don't need any special cards at all do you?

    @Absting159

    @Davey Sprockett Honestly don't remember. But at the rate you pull cards right now, do them both and you'll break even no matter what. I pulled 3 blues in the packs from them. LOL. I know its a Mega for finishing - and I think you get smaller packs (i just know I packed 3 blues yesterday doing SBC's and I don't think I did other ones.)

    Did them both. Gave Defoe a few games as a sub, he's fine, but there are like 100 cards like him today. Havent tried Crouch yet but I will. He's 'different' then the little pace FWs so could be more fun.

    Using Defoe as I've used Crouch in the Defoe SBC.
    Nothing special really, I like 88 Zaha better.

    Zaha got dumped in an SBC a long time ago. Only good thing about him was his chant after scoring.

    Will most likely get Jesus or Rashford if they win tonight.
