    How’s prime Lineker?

    Incredible for me. Finishes everything he should and most of the ones he shouldn’t.

    He’s positioning is great, he’s quick and he gets a good few headers too.

    Cheap for what you’re getting imo

    New cards can drop their value.

    There's TOTGS this month

    Only a handful of elite cards won’t make a major dent.

    Not sayint it will but march crash is due to TOTGS mostly

    Eh? Didn’t understand that.

    Thanks a lot for that! Wasn’t sure if anyone had used him.

    I’m tempted to get him as an alternative to Butra. Kinda going with a La Liga theme so Lineker works too. Have you used Butra as well? Just wondering how they compare...

    Not used Butra yet. My plan was Lineker then Crespo then Butra. I’ve got the coins for the upgrade just no longer the need.

    Butra gets good reviews though. Don’t think you can go wrong with either.

    Thanks man. I’ve used Butra already so I’ll probably try Lineker to compare.

    Prime Socrates is absolutely amazing. Playing him at Cam and his shooting is the best I've used in the game so far. He's not the most agile but can skip challenges if needed his LT and ball roll is absolutely ridiculous due to his size he literally side steps 10 meters lol leaving defenders miles away with no chance. Best player I've used so far, you can truly feel his eliteness.

    Highly recommended 90 stoich

    Feels like his old card but faster and way more agile

    Always thought that new meta special cards shake the market a bit due to competition, might be wrong as the TOTGS crash during march is probably people panic selling due to TOTS

    Cruyff, Raul, Cr7 (still have) Vieira Stoichkov, Best, Nedved and others.

    MvB just saved me again, even in these **** servers he is a god. I conceded in the 89th minute to go 1 goal down. I accept my fate, already getting ready for the next game.

    I win a corner in the 93rd minute and MvB steps up

    and I go on to win in ET. what a hit son

    89 Gattuso

    have you used him mate? Just compared Keane and Gattuso directly and Keane has almost 140 more in game stats which is surprising because they don’t look that different other than passing on the cards.

    Out of 89 Gattuso, 86 Rijkaard and 88 Keane who would you guys get at CDM?

    Any other opinions guys?

    Nah but the cards we’re going to get won’t even come close to the top icons. I can see TOTY having an impact as some may sell prime R9 for a TOTY CR7 for example.

    Help me set priorities, please:

    Swap Aguero with 90 Butra or
    Swap KDB with 90 Del Piero

    My TP is full and can only afford 1 at this point.

    Prime Dinho rips any defender to pieces, so fun to use. Much prefer 5* skillers this year but ones like r9 and Cr7 just don’t come out of skill moves quick enough. Prime R9 does tbf but not the 94.

    Couldn’t agree with this more. Although I moved from R94 to prime r10 then back to r94. The skill moves just didn’t justify the loss in clinical ness provided by R94

    After watching others use him, I want him. I was set on keeping his 91 all year, but that pony tail and silky smooth dribbling is so tempting.

    Whenever I'm winning comfortably, I start to mess with moves and he makes them easy.

    He's also very strong and is always first to react after a challenge
