    When building your team's and going for an icon, what position do you like to build a team around?

    I'm wanting to start again with my team and selling my Socrates to try a new icon. I've 1.5mil to spend and I'm torn between building a team around Rivaldo, Figo or Best.

    I'm learning towards 90 Best and playing him as my main striker on 7 chem, but I've always loved Rivaldo but I'm hearing his 92 is meh?

    Maybe buy 3 baby icons and build a spine or is 1 top icon better than 3?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated 👍🏽

    Cheers all.

    Would you recommend building around socrates? I’m thinking the 89 version in a false 9?

    I love him and will be buying him back again(and again) 😉.

    My problem is I suffer from iconoritus and I'm constantly looking to find that fun icon and it's costs me an arm and a leg as I tend to buy high sell low 😥.

    He doesn't have to be game changing but obviously that helps, but I just want that fun factor as winning isn't everything for me.

    Socrates so far his 89 gets 10 outta 10 and his 87 9.5 outta 10.

    On a side note and tin foil hat time, but why do players play amazing for 10-15 games and then become ok? Do EA deliberately make your top players play worse with diminishing returns to get you to buy more players???? 😂🤣😉

    Okay so it s a go! I have the same issue, I buy and sell at all the wrong times. It’s only a game tho and it’s easier than ever to make coins now so I’m not too fussed. I’m not sure I agree with your theory, to the contrary for me. I need to use a player for about 30 games to get used to him properly and know exactly how to use him, it’s then I get the return on investment.

    Bought my man Prime Lampard last night.
    What a player he is. The runs he makes into the box is just like he was in his career. 94 long shots and 92 shot power. I love watching the goals flying in when the goalkeeper dont know what hit him.
    Very solid overall can do evertything tbh. Picked him up last night for just under 900k.

    Finally someone other than me posts something good about the greatest midfielder in PL history. :)

    I have to agree, had him and Gerrard and they compliment each other so well. Their passing is so good and they both my brilliant runs into the box.. definitely both worth the coins imo.

    Prime Kluivert has joined the club, 30 goals and loads of assists in 24 games so far. Really good Targetman: strong, great jumping and heading, good passing and vision, also pretty agile, 4*4 and the pace is a bonus. 9/10

    Seedorf, Veron, Gullit have all had positive reviews.

    Just played a few games with 90 Zola and i am really impressed. His finesse shots are insane as well as his passing. I use him as striker and his size and strength is no issue at all. 9/10

    Been using prime crespo for 30 games now. He has scored 36 goals and registered 13 assists. Very good target man. I do think his finishing could be more clinical as he has hit the post on numerous occasions it should have gone. He isn’t particularly fun to play with either , slightly clunky imo when dribbling. So all in all he is worth the coins if you want a goal scorer, but if you are looking for a fun player to use I would look elsewhere. 8/10

    Just entering this thread as I've finally built myself a half decent coin stack. I need a budget icon ST (around 400-450k MAX). Currently looking at 87 Shearer or 87 Inzaghi (I want a powerful striker who is great in the air). Also considering 86 RVN.

    Any suggestions?
  • I need help. Should i go for Scholes or is there better CM/CDM/CAM Icons for about 600-800k?

    This is my Icons now.

    Swapped Blanc with Rio (didn't plan but just listed Blanc overnight for a high price and he sold), got seedorf in and Keane for Kante.

    Unsure if Keane is much better than Kante yet, did get 6-0 in WL (didn't have time play more) with Kante as my CDM also not sure about Seedorf, considering a new CAM but only "upgrade" would be gullit or prime maradona etc which I don't have the coinage for.

    I have 85 Pires and 88 Lehmann. Both are so... average, almost useless.
    I got them in preparation for prime SBCs. If your plan is to buy of the two, just for using an icon in your team, change your mind and buy something else.

    Guys, the cheapest Icons are now 230/250k. Do you think they will increase to 500k when Icon SBC is out, as last year?

    I see cheapest central players (CDM -> ST) from 300k to 500k and GK, for SBCs when 2 or 3 icons are required, from 230k to 400k.

    Wondering if it's best to buy cheaper Icons like Larsson, Lineker to hold or go for the expensive ones like Cruyff or Eusebio or Socrates, Or just sit on coins and build a cheaper team with high rated golds? Have 3 mil but with BO4 releasing Fri and RDR2 coming soon I'm probably going to be playing less Fifa over the next month or so.
