    Alright. I'm struggling to decide.
    Which player do you guys think is best to build a team around going forward AND will hold their value reasonably well?

    Looking at NIF Messi, Prime Seedorf, Neymar

    Also a bit curious about some of the CB's, would anyone spend 3/4 of their coins on one of them?

    Messi.

    think Prime Seedorf will drop quite a bit?

    He may, but I found him unimpressive and not worthy of centerpiece status.

    Just played my 100th game with 91 Lord Ronaldinho in which he finished with 3 goals and assists. He now has 147 goals and 92 assists with a single yellow card in 100 appearances for me. The man is a legitimate cheat.

    I spent all my coins on Prime Rio. He’s solid. Only lost one tonight.

    If I could skill more I’d 100% use R10. But he’d be wasted with me.

    Is Baby Gullit worth it?

    Horrible stamina and with the new patch will become worse.

    Would Socrates make a good CM? And is there a big difference between the 87 and 89? Other than the stamina they look pretty much the same.

    Been looking for socrates review as well

    89 Socrates is way better than the 87. 87 felt slow and clunky, whereas 89 felt OP.


    Just got him (89 Socrates) last night. I need a central Brazilian Icon. He is good. Strong, imposing and score goals with either foot.

    My fear is that he will turn like a truck or clunky, he is not. Definitely usable. I’ve used Prime and mid Cruyff. He is not as good in terms of finesse shots or dribbling but better in terms of strength and stamina.

    I'll get him back when I have the coins, or when his sbc is out. I upgraded to 91 ronaldinho and it's been worth it. I can't wait to use them both in the same team.

    What the hell is wrong with the middle version Lothar Matthäus , he is trash with a capital T for me.

    Got middle version Patty V though what a savage.

    Trying to find a physical presence up front though . Have 2.3 million left someone fast , good dribbling & can win a header. Sounds like CR7 lol but don't want him.

    Buy him and learn a few moves, just takes time but it’s so fun

    Yeah you described CR7, but prime Raul probably fits that mold too. The 88 was great for me

    Raul fits the description. Also winning goalkicks has to do with the goalkeeper as well, I've yet to lose one with Neuer while I lost countless with Courtois

    Is Eusebio worth the huge downgrade in the midfield or should i just spend my coins another way?

    No way, you already have hazard and ron upfront

    Midfield is super important especially when you will play drop back every game

    btw whats ur opinion on Rio?

    He’s a huge upgrade over Varane for me, will either straight up bully others and win the ball or catch up to them.

    Ok, so Zola won’t last now....

    Thinking Cruyff in this as a pair with Mbappe upfront with Mahrez at CAM?

    Would ideally like to keep Szczesny so will probably grab a Icon CB when the times right. Desailly would fit and leave him on 7 chem, Rabiot can then be replaced as well. I have 2.85 plus another 700k in high rated cards for an SBC. Thoughts on a striker to pair with Mbappe, not a bad first owner team I don’t think

    Tbh if I had your team of untradeables I'd put every coin I had (leaving some to trade if you want) into the best Icon striker I could afford. So Cruyff/Raul etc

    Maybe Henry

    If you want to finish high in champs etc I'd be switching Alonso, Bailly, Benatia, Rabiot and Gini out with that 2.8m then waiting for a top tier icon attacker SBC to dump Zola and the high rated cards into.

    Eusebio or Henry. What about a player like prime Kluivert, and getting a top end icon midfielder instead?

    @maymanpele Finally grabbed him last night (Slightly over value 2.544k PS4 but I was growing impatient) So far he has scored 5, 3 assists in 3 games! Gonna take me a little getting used to, and i've gotta try and not use him to press defensively as his stamina isn't the best but I feel its gonna be a fun card to use! Do you still use him at CAM?

    Picked up Prime Cruyff. I had a mess around with Prime MVB last night and couldn't believe how good his finishing was.

    Hoping this combo is dreamy.

    Who is the one big target to aim for R9, Eusebio, Cruyff or TOTY Ronaldo?

    Leaning towards either R94 or TOTY Ron.

    Need a big aim to motivate me to trade more
