    Who would play well with MvB in a 442?

    Budget?

    I’d rather have Cruyff

    Leaning towards him as well just cause it’s Cruyff really.

    I'm thinking about playing Gullit CCAM to get the most out of him and get NIF Kante as a second CDM.

    Gorgeous. REally glad you have Ramos NIF and prime Blanc with de Gea and Lala, have the same defense, although I do have SIF Sandro on the left, still afraid by Marcelo WR on the left, tried him extensively (NIF) and got way better results with Sandro because Marcelo was just... not here defensively. Sure, he has immense stats, but afraid he would have the same issues as his nif card, i.e. workrates.

    Would be REALLY interested in having your feedback on Gullit, also tried him for the first time since Thursday, got around 40 games with him , and not entirely convinced as a CM. Never well positioned for me, especially defensively, as if I was missing the good chem for him. Tried Engine first, then Hunter and Shadow. Something is lackingt. But also never had a CM with that good offensive plus value, he assisted and scored (average) of 31 in 40, being said that he had Socrates Eusebio and Cr7 above him who all have +1 per game.

    Which formation you gonna use in game ? I feel like I shoud play Gullit CAM instead of CM. I aslo feel he would be a much better CM in a formation with two central midfielders rather than 3 as he was for me, in a 41212 (2). So he had to play left or right CM, (kante is my CDM) and struggled to find good positioning.

    Also, I packed something insane tonight, pic will follow.

    Yeah Cruyff for me as well. I dunno how I feel about that Baggio however, EA has done him dirty.

    Who would you suggest out wide instead? Even thought about Laudrup just cause 550k is mad cheap for a prime icon and feel like Raul, Stoich and Cruyff will run the show anyway. Can put Raul out wide too and get a striker but dunno if he fits that role.

    Ideally similar to MvB -around 1-1.5m.

    Apologies guys, packed this tonight in one of the 2000 pack. To be honest, the 2000 packs have been WAY better for me than all the 2500. This is where I got all the big things, tonight being the biggest for me, but also had CR7 and TOTY Kante and Baby Butra in a 2k pack. By far my fav packs.

    That TOTY Marcelo is untradeable so I kinda feel like I have to use him. I did use the NIF for a while and didn't have any problems with him defensively with stay back instructions. I do feel stay back would be kind of a waste on TOTY Marcelo however, so I am considering getting Matuidi and switching the two IG. I was hoping to get TOTY Ramos as well but I ran out of coins. But hey, at least I still have something to work towards.

    Honestly this is the first time I'm gonna try Gullit, never had the chance to use him before. I came up against people using him as ST and CAM before and he was a menace. So I'm gonna use him as a CCAM in a 4-2-3-1 narrow. He'd still be able to drop back and help defensively here and there, and I can abuse his 5* WF from outside the box offensively. Having him as a CDM just doesn't make much sense to me given the price I'm paying. I'll provide some feedback once I get the chance to use this squad, just need Neymar now.

    Seems like your luck has been on point lately. I'd quit while you're ahead :D

    Seriously though, grats on that crazy pull!

    Get 90 butra

    He's a wizard

    I'm using him up top in 442 next to Socrates and they work great together, he should be a good foil for mvb

    @Reus I’ve been using butra next to CR7 in a 442 so far tonight and not sure what I’m doing wrong but not really liking him

    He gets knocked off the hall way too easily (not surprising cause he’s small)

    Have 5m for a icon cb, icon cam and icon cdm. Is it worth spending 2.3ish on 88 vieira for the cdm role?

    I was happy as a child to have enough money to build this team. But since i put rivaldo away and bought Bergkamp, everything went downhill. I feel like there is no more creativity and pace in my team. Help is needed to make some changes. I have around 300k left and was thinking about getting butra 90 instead of bergkamp or lineker. What are your thoughts? This is my team:

    Who's the best CDM in a 4231 between prime Rijkaard, Prime Veron, and 88 Petit? I'll have right around a mil. Could stretch a little if I'm missing someone else

    Bergkamp and Lineker dont look ideal for those wide cam roles..

    Maybe best, figo, rivaldo or any other winger with a central card?

    Petit>Veron>Rijkaard

    Petit is crazy athletic, very tall, and has very good agility and balance for his height so he is very comfortable on the ball. And of course his defending stats are top notch. Veron is one of the best playmakers in the game, his close control and passing are top his through balls nearly always come off. And with a shadow he’s a decent defender, he’s strong and big like Petit too. Rijkaard I had high hopes for but I think the agility and balance are just too low because he could not carry the ball forward. He is the best defender out of the three but on the ball all he can do is pick out a pass, if you’re dribbling with him it’ll get nicked, and I like carrying the ball with my CDM.

    At 1.1m 89 Ballack is basically Veron + 4 star skills and weak foot but he can defend much better than Veron. And he’s a big threat on corners because of his jumping + height

    For the price I’d recommend 88 Petit but if you have the 1.1 Ballack is a little better offensively

    Thank you so much for the write up. I tried the base Ballack and didn't like him at all so I didn't consider the 89, but if he's much better I shouldn't immediately rule him out.

    Since 91 Kroos will be my other CDM I'm leaning towards Petit just because he's a bit more defence minded, but I can see Veron still doing that job well enough.

    I have used prime Makelele, Baby Blanc, kante, Fabinho, 88 Petit, 88 Lothar, prime Rijkaard....
    For me Baby Blanc and 88 Petit have been the best of the lot...

    height+(LF+RF combo)+ strength, can shoot, have pace to catch up with players...

    OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve got Toty CR7 from an 82 plus sbc!!!!!!

    I’ve spent around 400$ on ultimate packs and got Navas as my best player and I’ve crafted around 100 premium La Liga sbc and got kroos once so I’ve figured let’s try 3 82 plus and on my 3rd pack this beauty has showed up!

    Sorry for bragging , I just wanted to share:)

    The money being used on this game during TOTY is insane

    I added that one to my watch list haha. Guy had it at 2.31 at first but didn’t sell. I wasn’t sure if that was a “good” deal.

    I’m still torn between Vieira plus Matuidi or Petit and another icon mid
