    The only answer should really be Jens

    Monster team James. Do you play 442?

    Imo cruyff is better in a cam role, get a bit of space and he can do wonderful things, at striker I found people would close him down too quickly and just wipe him out (if they got him, of course).

    Also, how would you compare ribery to robben? I see you’ve ditched your old pal Franck in favour of Neymar!?

    The 5* skills is tempting so hoping for either one or the other as a rerelease over the new few days.

    Of course not. That would make too much sense.

    Hey, Rebel!

    So, I've been playing 442 and its many variants all year - 4411, 4231 wide, etc. I quickly realized exactly what you forewarned me - Cruyff is going to be best at CAM, so I ended up with this:

    dc66527a94bb8b30d62ced70579b8eeb.gyf

    It's been working splendidly, and as advertised Cruyff is so damn fun to play with. I think I made the right choice in service to the GOAT. Either way, now I gotta figure out what to do with the rest of my damn coin. All I can think of is Gullit, maybe.

    Anyway, here is the deal with Robbery - they're BOTH amazing. Truly. Robben is a bit better of a scorer, while Ribery is better playmaking. The way I use those wings in 442 is all about making space, holding up play, overlapping, etc. and frankly I've just been using Robben because he's RM, though I did have him at striker for at least three WLs and he was very effective there. Do you have any idea how nasty TOTY Neymar is, mate? He's lightning in a jar. Don't forget, I wacked him untradeable in the league SBC during TOTY. He's played close to 500 games for the club. He's the PERFECT LM for what I want out of the position. I usually sub in Ribery and TOTS Thauvin around the 60th-70th for Neymar & Robben - once I settle on the RB I want to use for end-game, I'll make a final shift of personnel. Either way, I highly recommend both of their SBCs re-release - they've both been great fun for me.

    Oh, and you inspired me to go back to Robbery for the record!!!

    Funnily enough, I was going to suggest going to 4231. And gullit and big pat as cdms is going to be a decent shout to finish it off with who you have. Then aouar would be a perfect sub along with Neymar and thauvin as well.

    And yes, how can I forget about you getting TOTY Neymar! So jelly of that not going to lie. But your team is a thing of beauty I must say.

    Thanks for the word on robbery, I’ll have to wait and see who else is released before deciding on who to commit to. Ribery is tempting because of the skills but robben just has a lethal left peg so it will be a hard choice!

    After casually playing 4-5 games this weekend, I genuinely wonder why and how I played WL for the past six weeks.

    89 Van Der Sar.

    Probably a dumb question, but why is he the meta now? Why is he better than TOTY De Gea?

    Great question. I think some YouTuber repped him. Anyway, dully noted. I need to upgrade GK. What else?

    Because of the links he provides. Most people need the strong link to vvd which leaves you with alisson or VDS.

    He's also pretty tall so good against the meta of volleys and shooting from god knows where.

    No clue.

    I've used him on and off since long time beta he became "meta".

    I sold one just before the hype for around 350k at that time to improve my team since I had 92 UCL DDG untradeable.

    Wanted him back not long after and had to save up to afford him again. Just bough him a few days ago for 599k. :joy:

    Was on vacation for a bit, so haven't posted in a while. but I ended up doing Eusebio, and needless to say my team is absolute FIRE:

    55325cff079128a780bedd8d1bc02a74.gyf


    Probably the most FUN squad I've ever had in FUT! Now i am going to work on my Arsenal B team - maybe add PIM Pires or try TOTS Laca/Auby.

    Sadly, PIM Roberto Carlos has been relegated to the bench because, well, of that damn "Champions" Bale card.

    Luckily, I've been subbing him in at LM and he's a blast to play with going forward!

    I am trying to figure out how to invest my last two million. Tempted to do Ruud to replace Pat, but Don't know if it's worth it. Also, I hate this new Bale card.
  • James Libby

    I am going to sell everything and submit any and all non-starter unteadeables...

    And do Gullit.

    Don't @ me.

    What is it you hate about this bale card? Are you using him, or you just hate playing against him?

    I had the bday for a bit and he was alright but nothing special imo. Obviously the main thing he has is height and jumping, but excluding that he wasn’t that great for me, and he’s never caused me many issues.

    The only thing I’d suggest for you after getting gullit is maybe mendy for lb, although that halstenberg is a bit of a unit and good at defending the meta back post crosses.

    Your team looks sick though James 👍🏻

    Also, I completed robben the second time round and must say he’s a delight to use. Not a starter for me but an excellent sub later on in the game for me, his pace and strength is massively helpful, and despite everyone knowing you’re going to cut in on to the left, if they don’t stop it he frequently scores bangers so enjoying him a lot when the game plays decent.
