    Pogba is excellent though, I was switching between 4231 and 451 so he was a CDM or CAM. I will say playing alongside Gullit in 4231 isn't ideal because of thier workrates and I'm not sure if I was playing all 30 if I'd play them as a duo, Vieira would probably complement him better but he so strong and if you do play him further forward he is so dangerous. He ended up with 5 goals in *edit actually 8 games and that was me playing naturally and not forcing anything (Richarlison only scored 3 in 10 at ST in comparison)

    So Pogba worth it but not Richarlason?

    Richarlison is 100% worth it, my striker just isn't my main goal threat and I got a few early rage quits. I'll be getting Rashford later so will give him a go at ST aswell sometime during the week.

    Thinking to get him as Super sub instead of Ibra .
    Think a midfield 3 of Pogba , Socrates and Gullit would be 2 offensive ?

    Finished 20-8. Richarlison is insane. The delay and garbage gameplay this weekend was also insane.

    So after my rant post of last week and telling myself to.quit, i couldnt resist fifa. I am well and truly addicted. So i fired up fifa on friday, got myself a Kimpembe and started the weekend league, until to finish at..... drum rolls..... 23-5!!

    2n8wv7.jpg

    This is my 3rd elite 3 in this year but by far the most satisfying. I was close.to it so many times, but finally succeded. This was my in game team (only firmino on 7 chem) which got me.there:

    mrmkk.jpg

    Played all games with this formation. It feels so rewarding to beat all the 4231 drop back players. I had the most difficult games against 433-4 teams.

    Luckily, this week i didnt face too many abusers of the game. All those scoop volleys and scoop crosses, its the worst meta since i started playing from fifa17. Its so unrealistic. Cant wait for fifa20.

    Also what brought me elite 3 is winning my one and only PK!! You would guess that these are 50-50, but for me its more 10-90.

    So, leaving fifa 19 on a high note!

    Jumping into this, I've used pogba for 7 games now and I'm rather disappointed, looking at him the closest thing is Gullit but the Dutch beast is just miles better than pogba imo.

    I've used him at CM and CAM. Somehow his low balance is really noticeable, not like CR7 who has the same low balance. And his finishing has let me down a few times now, but this may be down to me using aouar before him who just finishes everything.

    I just hope its gonna be like eusebio who I started to love after ~100 games

    Probably abit to attacking because of Pogba workrates, doesn't really matter in August though 👍

    Lost my game to Elite against german palyer Who had 530 pro points. Constantly flicking crosses and shots. Not once did he broke down my defense. One 270 degree 1st time finesse outside of box and one flick up followed scissors cross with weak foot to Messs head seals the deal for him 0-2. Despite he didnt broke my defense once and me creating 2 changes 1v1 on 5 meters, which resulted GK ridicolous movement save and post.

    The state of the game when opponents only relies glitches which are being addressed to fix in next fifa and still wins.

    Also had to play 5 times vs top100 players. Despite having rubbish friday/sat. There truly arent any casuals left

    I'm surprised that there's seemingly people more hardcore than me trying for Elite still! 😂 3 weeks I think since I last played to elite and no regrets at all 👍

    Richarlison has been great in the few games I’ve used him and has resulted in me benching TOTY CR7. Pogba has been solid so far at CM in 442 but does feel a bit stiff ngl.

    This is how the team starts off:

    I don't care about the rewards anymore, would actually be pissed to get something decent in August, like a kick in the teeth from EA 😂

    Finished 17-8 this weekend. Started 10-0 then it became a grind, but the first 10 games were great fun - picked up Prime Ronaldinho this weekend to freshen up the team and he was amazing all weekend.

    Finished 16-14. :D

    Should have won and lost games I lost and won so seems fair. 16 is a sticking point now for me. Every team is rated 91-94 now though so I would think I'm making progress even if its almost August.

    After weeks of not playing WL I thought I would give it another go. Played 6 matches, done. All I face are mechanics abusers, la croqueta spammers, El tornado cross spammers, replay watchers, shush idiots, dabbers....

    Every casual player seems gone, and since that's also me, I'm also gone.

    And that's me done until Sunday... 😂 4-0. It was my last game today anyway but this just made sure... my god this game is shocking 🤦‍♂️

    Deserved red right guys? Filthy tackle by Mbappe 😂 (His first booking also was when I pressed square to cross and he did a slide tackle instead 🤦‍♂️) and I'm sure I wasn't even controlling Mbappe here.

    Won and dominated with a 4-1 rage despite the most bs red card I've ever received despite no striker from the 16th min and an initial undeserved equaliser, but that doesn't make it OK.

    Well that usually happens when you try El tornado cross and opponent gets the ball before cross o:)

    No it was a regular op L1 cross 😉 and FYI if I do El Tornado 🌪 they don't normally get blocked 😎 😉 😂
