    3 days in Fut Birthday, do you guys reckon we will get more than 1! big boy icon sbc? My guess is they will do 1 maybe 2 but not Gullit, R9 but maybe a Vieira or Ronaldinho....dissapointed so far :(

    Soooo time to think of end team :)

    My team atm: - "How to make the meta even more meta"

    cBX26xo.jpg

    Upgrade i am thinking of:

    - Vieira Pim (Can sell mine to fund him, in case of max 2 icons needed)
    - Gullit Pim (Can sell mine to fund him, in case of max 2 icons needed)

    Btw 4 players pack pulled (Eusebio, Neymar, Blanc and DDG) Untradable: Eusebio, Neymar, Socrates, Vidal & Luiz

    I guess defense (yes can be slightly better - PIM Maldini or Toty Ramos for Blanc imo) but looking at teh added cost wouldn't be much of a difference. Will probably get a tots lb or rb, lets see

    ANy ideas guys??

    I'm going to replace luiz asap, he felt good at first but I keep seeing him make mistakes that lead to goals for me

    Hmm, i haven't noticed him making any big mistakes, i might be biased for some reason but he is excellent for me so far, him paired with Blanc is very good but then again i should look into why i get those goals conceeded in the 1st place. Ill see what this promo brings and see.. PIM Desailly is defo on my list but depends on what comes in coming week.

    Everyone seems to have different experiences with players, just noticed him making errors a lot recently, could be me of course but varane has been brilliant next to him and he's letting him down

    Talk some sense in to me guys. Heart says go with an icon and one or two alright players to fill that Serie A side in.

    Head says pick up carniball Icardi, Lukaku, Bonucci and Birthday Koulibaly for the same price with 100k-ish left over for a CAM

    @Antparry92 for 600K budget I'd go Carniball Icardi and Mertens with IF Manolas

    Icardi and Mertens are just as effective if not better than most icons anyway

    For me Icons are the only "unique" players and bring that novelty fun factor in addition. I always "relate" to the players I play and having today's players with ridiculous boosts sometime is just wrong... - This is personal and my opinion only :smile:

    One minute I’m thinking look at all the players I could get....then I think “but it’s Van Basten”

    So this is what I now have after going with my head. Will have 350k left to upgrade Lautaro to MVB either by Thursday or Sunday at the very latest. Midfield looks really defensive and only put Matuidi in as a place holder but that extra space where the CAM usually would be helps a lot

    looks good! I have never used a SerieA team so cannot comment on the players :wink: But an MvB would surely help :blush:

    I’m really hating my MLS collection at the moment and I’m tempted to sell up. Futbin is saying just under half a million if I sell up which could go towards an icon and a player I’d actually use

    Yeah lot of coins to have buried in players you don't like or use.

    Then just sell, I used to do the same but the value typically will just decrease at this stage of the game and your are missing out on players you want. MVB here you come :lol:

    You have Blanc and Desailly right, both PIMS? if i would know for a fact that the big boys only need 1 icon i would do Blanc as well but i already have the 91 which is first owner pack pulled :smiley: Difficult, what do you think?

    Does it work now mate? In your luxury situation Id stick with the 91 first owner and wait for Maldini instead.
    Im just bored and had Maldini + Des last year so decided to go Blanc + Des this time.

    Talisca from the 100k pack btw :joy:
