    Is Blanc worth it at 800k+? Isn't that a bit much for a base icon?

    Yes

    Anyone tried prime eusebio and think his 3.2 mill price tag is reasonable?

    Yes, he's a star, play him as my middle CAM in a 4231 and he got 88 games 77 goals and 53 assists, no other CAMs been even close to as good as him, would use him as striker if he were a bit taller but CAM suits him perfect.

    Currently rocking 5 Icons in my team after going through 15ish (made some profit believe it or not due to dramatic price changes)

    Baby Blanc
    Middle Vieira
    Middle Nedved
    Prime Eusebio
    Prime Desailly.

    Really recommend them all, so good IG and clutch up in hard games.

    Prime Eusebio is the star of the show, wrote about him just above.

    Middle Vieira is pure filth, so clutch for me, not sure if its worth upgrading to his prime for better shooting stats as I have him on stay back

    Middle Nedved suits my game very well, used loan POTM hazard and neymar before him but they never were as involved as Nedved as my LAM, got 18 goal contributions in 14 games.

    Baby Blanc is a beast, teams up with Vieira perfectly and got those spider legs snapping up everything, might swap him for prime Makelele at one point but seems like his tall stature and decent dribbling makes him OP.

    Prime Desally is really good for me at CB, check after every game he always made a few tackles and never see him lose a header, nothing bad to say really gets the job done.

    Looking at trying my first icon this year, best spending on an attacker as I just sold Aguero who was great. Got about 750k to spend

    Thoughts on the below: aiming towards a well rounded striker... or am I better upgrading multiple positions in an already decent team - eg Varane, Courtouis, Pog.. I already have Mahrez, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Alisson etc plus good subs to build around

    - Crespo 85 (love his cards most years always a well rounded beast)
    - Larsson 86 (similar to the above)
    - Raul (looks a bit underwhelming stat wise until you get to the 88)
    - Vieri 86/ 88 (agility might turn me off)
    - 89 Baggio (for fun and always been a fan)

    Got Kluivert 86 atm, he is very good. Shooting is not of elite icons but he is great all round striker.

    Target man with actual pace, agility and balance. Decent dribbling, 4/4 star so can do skill moves and decent short passing to hold the ball up and play through to wingers unlike many other target men. Main thing is pace + strength or blance combo, when you play him through on goal he is one of the few strikers that seems to be able to hold off defenders coming from behind.

    Not really. His other cards are very very close in terms of stats and 1m cheaper

    Wanna try some new icons 2mil+ but prices don't seem to be dropping like they usually do after the weekend. Have a feeling it's just gonna get worse though heading into next weekend.

    Ready to pull the trigger on 89 socrates but if i sell some key player i might scrape prime version. Is he worth the extra 500,000k
    Thanks!

    Read a coupe of reviews on him and they say the 89 is the best version (money wise). No noticeable difference between that and the Prime.

    @KinggHuss Not the prime I used 88 version in the last weekend leagues he was really dominant card, headers and by cycle kicks were the best, I shared couple of videos within this post look though, I would recommend the prime IMO

    I would say so too, height, agility, aggression and shot power is awesome of that card.

    Both are great...I went with the 89 as seems better value.

    I like 85 Zola a lot. Using him in 352 as CAM with deadeye. Feels like 99 pace, very agile, and not that easy to dispossess him with high balance. His passing is amazing, great crossing which is very improtant with CR7 and Kane as strikers, finesse shots go in evey time and what I like the most is his runs. He finds open space so easy, beats the defensive line, gets a through ball and sets up either Kane or CR7 with a cross or lay off for an easy goal. Only issue is stamina but with this formation, I have stamina problems with everyone at CAM position. Prime Lampard has 92 stamina and even he had problems towards the end of the match.

    Zola is good. Would recommend.

    How is he? Love a 5 star weak foot and he has decent physical, stats look like a bulkier better version of Son

    Socrates is great, I would definitely recommend him. I didn't find there was a lot of difference between his 87 and 89 though, I think the latter is like 400k more now too.

    I used both cards as a target man in a 4-3-3 (2). He's surprisingly quick on his feet for such a tall guy, can finish well on either foot as well which is a huge boost.
