Likely looking at his base card here...is he worth upgrading IF Firminho and transitioning to the 4231 with him CCAM? Seems hard to believe its a good move considering the stats, but if he's OP, I'd love to hear it. Cheers!

    Also, Socrates is a freak to play against

    I've got his mid card, absolutely the best icon I've used so far. His base was good too, and because of that I upgraded to his mid. Has a wicked long shot on him, no finesse needed. Can feel clunky at times but an engine card sorts that out

    Have his prime and he's an absolute beast, scores so many goals.

    I use his prime and he is a killer as striker. Play him as a sole striker in a 433 (4). He has everything a good striker needs

    He can bang them in but personally found him way too clunky. Sold for a small profit and wondering who to try next.

    4231 with him CCAM

    This is where I used my Prime Socrates for a good 300 games... Sold him yesterday to fund Prime Ballack and Prime Matthaus....

    10/10 would definitely recommend Socrates. Feels very special. Rocket of a shot, pin perfect passing and his height really helps with interceptions...

    I've used the 89 on 2 occasions because I found him so useful, sold him on Thursday/Friday to try out Prime Matthaus who i've now sold for Prime Socrates. The Prime definitely feels better overall imo, feels less clunky to me and his passing is definitely better. His main issue is his balance, which makes him feel a bit weak at times.
