    Can't see there being too many that have completed it as EA have completely overpriced it.

    My gameplay was poor so managed to stick out 3 games, only scored 2. At Cam I’m the first he was never up top. Started him at CM and he’s decent but stamina drained, put him back to CAM and he scores lol. Good on the ball, strong, quick and hell of a shot. I just can’t believe they have given a Prime Rooney same Workrates as he is now. Ruined it for me and if I had checked I wouldn’t have done him

    Yeah lol he's expensive. And that with that stamina. Chose to do Davies instead. Brought him in as a sub few games and he is amazing!

    Stamina wasn’t an issue for me, completed all 3 games and weren’t in the red.

    He has more stamina than ibra.he also more clinical than ibra.even his bog standard 80 rated is lethal.play him as a striker.he is a weapon

    Would he keep dropping back to midfield because of his work rates?

    3 games 2 goals 2 assists at RCM in 41212. Enjoying him so far and stamina not a issue for me either.

    Ibra has better work rates to compensate for the stamina though. And I highly doubt he's more clinical than FB Ibra as Ibra doesn't miss :D

    Wow seriously? On a 90 rated card that’s nuts!

    Well I read what you all said, ignored it 😂 and did him anyway and packed IF Modric so even if Rooney turns out to be pants I’m 50k up and have a 90 rated SBC fodder card.

    I’ll stick a review on myself in case anyone else is thinking of doing him (that’s if my heads not mashed with spending the next 2hours messing around with Chemistry) 😂

    Seriously though, thanks for your input and keep the reviews coming in case anyone else is undecided.

    Thanks bro. I did it also after reading above. I packed FS Foden. Recoupe 200k coins. Besides I did it mostly using 86 and Casila FB 91 untradeable. Didn't spend much coins

    I also have ibra.ibra isn't always their when you need him.you have to wait for him to get into the box.he didn't make great runs.

    Rooney however always makes runs into the box.some games ibra goes missing.rooney is always their.ive used Rooney in every FIFA.and found his finesses to be incredible.thats his base card.this card is really really good. Easier to link than ibra aswell.
    That's just my opinion

    I did him just because I've wanted him for a while. I would say he's not worth it for most, but I wanted him as CF behind Ibra. He's good, but I gave up FB Tevez for him.. mistake i think.

    i was thinking of playing him as centre defensive midfielder but a box to box player, yes he has bad stamina but will be subbing him off at around 65 mins anyway, what do you guys think before i submit the abc

    As my ultimate team will be an ex united squad I had to do him. Not used him yet. Will be either playing striker with Ibra behind in cf. Cf with Vardy or Ibra uptop or cm with Ibra cf vardyup top 4411 can’t decide yet. Dont mind subbing where ever he plays have Savic schweinstiger for cm, Tevez for cf and Martinez for st

    I've only played 1 games and he bagged twice and assisted another. Feels quality. I dont know if I'd spend 300k on it, i had untradeables so only cost me like 75k.

    Why?he will be wasted there.he is a out and out goal scorer not a midfielder.that will just kill his stamina.

    The five matches of DR I played last night where FB Rooney and FB Ibra were subbed on in all five of them would suggest this isn't the case.

    People are coin-rich, and 99% of them don't give a damn about the price or how good the player is. They just care about it being a shiny new thing they won't be able to get once the SBC is over.

    Played 5 games WL, won 4. Played 2 games DR won 1 draw 1. Is all about Rooney. If he suit your play style he definitely worth 300k.

    In game 4222. Btw my Rooney is basically free coz I packed Foden 88. Perfectly suit to build a team for England chem.

    Compare to FB Zlatan and under my play style Rooney just fluid on ball, doesn't fall to ground easily and finishing is equally clinical.

    His work rates are perfect for my possession style build up, constantly coming to feet on half way to send Cole in acres of space down the left. He's the new rebound king too

    U are right. I scored 2 rebound among my 11. Other goals are just right time right place. His composure 99 in work.
