It's between Larsson, Ferdinand or Lampard? Just looking for some feedback on these players if anyone's used them. I had Prime Larsson last year and he was great but the other 2 look interesting.

    I had Rio last year, I’m waiting for Maldini and Cannavaro this time round

    Rio was great, but his WRs got me into trouble a few times and I really did feel stuck with him towards the end, so I put him into another Icon around Futties time

    I think it's between Lampard and Larsson. Ferdinand looks great but not sure if he's that much Better than someone like Varane. I just think a striker or mid would be more impactful.

    Lampard looks the best option depending on playstyle/formation. Makelele would be great in a 41212 though.

    He looks real similar to Kante or Matuidi.

    Dude he’s much better than Varane. 2nd best CB on the game behind Maldini. Fifa 19 is the year of OP AI defence, Rio is a wall

    Larsson doesn't remotely represent good value. If you put a gun to my head and told me to do the SBC, I'd get Ferdi or Lampard

    He was top 5 best strikers last year for me but I am leaning towards Lampard since I could use him at CM, CDM or CAM.

    So, I've completed all the sbcs and cost was 740k and still have the packs to open. Much cheaper than I thought but I had several high rated Untradeables and informs.

    Lampard is great. I was using him at CAM in 352 with powerhouse chem style. Very stamina consuming position, no problem for Lampard with his high stamina.
    You need Iniesta-like passes? Go for Lampard.
    You need long distance shooter? Lampard bangs them in like guess who, Lampard in his prime. ;)
    Makes great runs, always at the right place at the right time and finishing is like he is a top striker. On top of that he does well in defence too.

    Note that this is a review from a guy who has Lampard on his profile pic. O bias right? :D

    I did go with Lampard. :)

    Almost chose Larsson but I think there will be many better options for cheaper. Lampard I can use in several positions in the midfield plus he will be more useful for linking players from other leagues.

    Now about to open the packs and calculate final cost

    Out of interest how much did it cost compared to the tradeable version ?

    I am so disappointed that both sets have required an icon to be submitted

    Looking at his stats he would be a monumental box to box cm with shadow on and those h/h work rates.

    Maldini on 19 doesn't fit the META as much as he did on the last one tbh

    I estimated 740k but after adding it up only cost me 696k+ several high rated untradeable UCL players. And I still haven't opened the packs. You can get 83s 84s and 85s so cheap right now.

    Did ok with the packs. Iniesta, Alli, Pjanic, Fekir and 2 low rated Informs were the notables.

    I'll get about 140k from packs Bringing the total cost + untradeables to 556k for Prime Lampard.

    There is no question about it...

    The only elite tier icon there Is Ferdinand. The rest of them are not end game cards.

    I'll use Lampard till they release a big Icon SBC I want like Eusebio, Cruyff or Gullit. Gonna need several so this is just the start in preparation, I just hope they release them in a reasonable amount of time.

    I had Larsson and Rio last year...if I was doing it this time (which I'm not) and it was my first icon.... I'd always go for an attacking player first ...so I'd go Larsson, he's was my top scorer in 18 with most games played. Proper GOAT

    If I have the coins I'll be buying an icon instead of going untradeable this year tho, I'm saving for my hero Giggs :)

    I also did way to many Icons last year and regretted it when TOTS came around. Will be more selective this year. I had Prime Larsson in 18 so I figured I'd try Lampard out who I was a big fan of. Also nice having Icons in mid so I can link attack and defense from other leagues with no problem.

    Yeah I did too many last year too. But nobody foreseen the carnage that TOTS would bring...lol. sentiment should really count more than anything else when picking an icon. So I hope you enjoy Lampard tho mate :)

    seems like bad value imo, can still buy the cards for close to the cost but if I had to chose one Rio, even thou I think Desailly is way better.
