which one would be better as CAM in 4-3-3 ?

would lean towards Eusebio but Socrates looks like a huge beast

anyone tried both at this position and could share opinion?

    I have used loan versions of both. I liked Socrates better.

    I have both and would say Eusebio but it's close. But considering the price difference maybe Socrates and save the extra coins for tots since the difference isn't that big between the two.

    Socrates for cam, Eusebio for striker.

    I have both and that's how I roll.

    Depends.

    Eusebio is better at shooting (a lot), passing and dribbling

    Socrates is better for height, strength and heading.

    Pick the type of player you like to play with the most

    Yeah, but I play with single ST formations
    wouldn't Eusebio be lost alone there?

    And isn't Socrates more suited for ST ?
    why you prefer them that way?

    I think Eusebio would be cheaper for me as I have few high rated IF's
    where Socratis needs two 88 rated squads

    I'm on PC btw and according to Futbin both SBC are same price on PC hehe

    Can't comment on how Socrates is, but I use Prime Eusebio as a lone striker, and he is in no way lost. I replaced Prime Crespo with him. He's surprisingly strong, but his dribbling and shooting is crazy. And he can actually make great passes too!

    PIM Socrates has been my CAM for a while and he's amazing there does everything really. Just recently got Prime Eusebio to play striker and he's been great as well, as people said he's dribbling and shooting are otherworldly
  • I have both, Socrates is a better cam in general. Eusebio shooting is just unreal though.

    Socrates is freaking amazing, he is the one icon outside of George Best this year that I didn't regret doing later.

    You'd be surprised. I use a 4231 and 4121212 (depending on how the game is going). Eusebio makes brilliant runs and finishes everything. Socrates has the presence to dominate from cam and can batter out long shots like no one's business.

    I'll add, here's my goals and that from em:
    Socrates: 348 games, 268 goals, 160 assists (from cam)
    Eusebio: 56 games, 83 goals, 16 assists (from striker)

    All goals from Weekend League and D1

    Any thoughts on Socrates as a CM?

    Was going to ask the same question
  • When I first got Eusebio I thought he’d be a good cf behind ibra. Specifically for ibra height when heading down long balls. Ibra has since been moved to cam because Eusebio is so damn clinical. Great pace and dribbling, passing is on point typically as well.

    If you like rapid agile and clinical go with Eusebio. If a bigger cam with a tad bit more strength is your forte then Socrates, but honestly feel you can’t go wrong either way.

    now everyone says Socratis

    @Ishibum if you had to choose -which one would you?

    Can Socrates play CDM in a 4-2-3-1? The other CDM is very defensive (De Rossi). I have the feeling defence stats don't really matter and his large body model will make him win many duals

    Really not well suited to cdm. Basically think Gullit without the defending

    If it's a blank slate, I'd go Socrates. Tots will bring a lot of nippy strikers (I think the Jovic card is one to keep an eye out for). Socrates is more of a unique card that'll bring things to the table that no other player can bring (not many 5* wf giants in the game)

    Although I haven’t used Eusebio in any form i do have pim Socrates and he is exceptional. He is fast, strong and can hit it with both feet. He is the only player in my team with a positive goal record and I play him at cam.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t find pim socrates any special? Was a massive fan of the 89 card, so ofc i did the sbc as soon as it arrived, but after 150 games and 72 goals I just expected more, as I had a 1;1 ratio with the old card
