    Can pickup Prem 85’s for 9k.

    with potm round the corner, must be coins to be had here.

    should be...however, with TOTY out will the potm be worth doing

    Never know with this market! If they overprice it no one will go near it.

    I know coins are easier to get this year, but for the average person TOTY cards are going to be out of reach I’d think.

    Do people think a NIF Salah, a special Salah or neither is more likely to be required for the POTM?

    It's risky, you never know this year.

    For that sort on investing you are better getting in early and always selling in the hype imo.

    Thanks for the reply. I was more asking as i want to do the potm as opposed to an investment. I bought a nif just in case but i dont really want to risk buying a special card. Trouble is, if it requires a special it may shoot above what im prepared to pay if i dont have one in advance.

    I have the IF in my team and just bought the NIF as well.

    The reason i think he is needed is because EA is sloppy. When POTM Auba was out they couldnt make a fancy national sbc with nation + nation IF as we saw with Hazard. Because Auba is pretty much the only Gaboneese player. So they chose he was needed.

    Same could happen with egypt. So instead of being creative its just easier to make some sort of BpL sbc with IF and so, some serie a/Roma sbc + Salah.

    After all TOTY is out and thats where EA earn their money. CBA to be creative at POTM SBC.

    Just a personal opinion.

    FOR ME IT'S ALWAYS THE SAME THING , I HAVE PAID ARROUND 1500€ SINCE THE BEGGINING OF THE GAME AND MY BEST PLAYER WAS KROOS AND POGBA.
    NO LEGEND, NO GOOD IN FORM AND OF COURSE NO TOTY ...
    THIS IS NORMAL ??? ALL MY FRIEND WHO HAVE ADD NOT MORE THAN 100€ HAS ALREADY HAVE ICON AND TOTY ...
    CAN YOU EXPLAIN ME WHY THERE IS SO MUCH DIFFERENCE?
    I M SURE ABOUT THE SCRIPT AND I WILL STOP TO PLAY AND TO PAY ...

    mate, typing in capitals is shouting.

    You are your own worst enemy. Because you have given EA £1500 they have no need to improve the game mechanics.

    They figure you must like it.

    Plus, because you're spending that much, they throw you a bone every now and then....Kroos, Pogba......to keep you coming back and spending. They dont need to give you an icon...they know you'll keep spending. Your mates that havent had been given a big card to lure them in.

    you're a cashcow to them

    stop buying FP

    Yeah i picked up some of those plus Sterling and Mahrez all for 9k max.

    They haven't really risen even thou they are needed in the David Silva sbc, don't think that card is that badly priced so was a bit surprised, if that was a potm card it would be more expensive.

    Not sure if people have stacked clubs or just are not interested as much in these untradables but last year a card like that would have had a bigger affect on the market i think.

    Possibly yeah, but at the same time just go and compare that Silva with the regular 91 KDB card. 260k roughly for both of them, but one is tradeable and the other untradeable.

    Silva is small, with a 2* WF. De Bruyne is much taller with a 5* WF which is an instant win. Other than dribbling, De Bruyne's stats are similar other than physical/defending, which he wins. I think people are feeling the same way and realising this Silva card just isn't worth it, despite the seemingly reasonable price

    Yeah i totally agree, after initially seeing the card and thinking it looked ok i realized it's not worth it and didn't do it myself. (plus 2* weak foot :s )

    Just seems everyone is a bit wiser this year and doesn't get so distracted by shiny new untradable cards! :D

    I just thought as it was not as stupidly priced as other sbc's we have seen (still a bit overpriced imo) and you got some packs back, more people would fall for it haha

    Well, you say that everyone's not falling for shiny cards......... just look at the numbers of FP being purchased this week! Go and look at the TOTY De Gea price too, people are paying 1.1 million for a card with +2 handling and +16 speed (irrelevant) to his 92 TOTGS worth 400k, after a basic GK chem style. You're essentially paying 700k for a different shade of blue on his card, and 2 handling! Madness.

    I do agree that the SBC trap is less intrusive this year though. Everyone had the cheapish prime icons last year, like Rui Costa, ADP, Rio, Larsson etc... from very early in the game. Definitely not the case this year

    Picking up 83s in case they drop something funky over the next few days. Only about 100, but getting them for about 800-900 coins so pretty safe investment for a potential 100k+ return.

    Someone leaked a +81 totw sbc yesterday and castro mentioned it on his stream, I think if its a +81 totw sbc its probably going to be an 84 rated squad

    I noticed NIF Salah is starting to get bought up. I missed the boat, so not going to purchase one. might not even be required if he wins.

    It's not up to EA. I think i'm going to get everything ready to go with the POTM but wait until this evening to submit everything just in case.

    Oh you mean if he wins potm EA will make sure he wont win the TOTY vote!

    I'm scared i will do the potm and then they will release a special Salah as they did with Silva. He did break the league goals record last year after all so thats a decent enough excuse for them.
