Thinking about doing him to link with Ibra but the cost has me very unsure. Since he’s M/H work rates I can’t imagine he would be ideal up top but was thinking of switching to 41212(2) and using him at RCM if I were to grab him. Reckon he’s worth getting or don’t bother? Not sure if anyone has tried him in the midfield yet

    Honestly he would probably be awesome there albeit possibly wasted.

    Using him as a cam 3 games 5 goals 1 assist.

    Obviously cant do a prope review atm but between him, fb ibra, prime best and futmas rashford they all link up well and im going into WL optimistic... untill the bs strikes

    Aren't his m/h workrates annoying in game?

    Not that ive seen, rather than being at cam he can end up more like a cm, he rarely goes into the cdm position where my other two lie so id say he doesnt really come back. I use him for doing 1-2’s with zlatan or laying it off to my ram/lam and then bursting forwards. He does well, his burst of pace you cant explain till you see it i think its great, the combination of strength and pace when someones trying to hold him up etc

    He can go st, cam, cm, or cdm.... can even play him at lm/rm on less chem due to his already great stats.

    That link to Ibra is the big thing for me. I run the 4-2-3-1 wide and narrow so he's perfect for CAM.

    300k seems alot though. Especially considering Ibra is higher rated, a better all around card. . .just not english and he was what, 100k?

    I’m thinking 300k is a bit much too. If he was 150-180k pre packs like ibra was I would feel much better about it.

    I have 87 Zola currently to link with Ibra and I would probably be keeping him anyways but it would give the option to not have to use an icon. I guess it comes down to in a couple months will I even want to be starting ibra? It’s a lot of coins to sink when I don’t have a ton to begin with but his stats do look pretty insane for a CM

    Didn’t mean to double quote this

    I'm planning on using him CDM this WL, I wouldn't say he's bad value, only that Ibra was just such good value.

    Any card that has 4 90+ stats on their card after chem styles is easily worth 300k.

    I would say get back to me on that but pretty sure the sbc doesn’t even last the weekend

    Feel like I should probably stay away from this one and keep saving my coins. No untradables to help with the cost for me

    That’s my biggest issue with the card. Especially with playing CM in mind

    His tackling stats are miserable. He's no good if you need your cm to do anything other than run forward and shoot.

    His work rates seem to not affect him at all at cam or St, for me anyway. Just put stay forward on if it bothers you

    I may try him as a CAM instead of a CDM next time I'm playing, I don't think it's his defensive stats that are bothering me because I use Kovacic there no problem it must be his work rates combined with the stamina.

    Ibra can has a low stamina due to his M/L workrates. At the same time low stamina in case of Rooney can be a huge con. M/H and 74 stamina is not the greatest combo. Especially when you will be using him as your CM. He will be out of stamina in 60 min.

    seems decent, at CAM or ST, his passing is really on point and general finishing and also heading too, seeing as he's not the tallest - he does the back post headers well. Doesn't really feel fast like 90+ though - I've not enough games with him yet to be sure
