FB De Rossi still better than all of the TOTS CDMs

I've tried every TOTS CDM / defensive skilled CM but FB De Rossi is still better than all of them. I think it's his strength and aggression in combination with his high defensive and mid attacking work rates. I would really like that Witsel is working better than him but he always runs around like a headless chicken.

    It'll be interesting to see if he gets a EoaE card, and what stats he has if does.

    Statwise Goretzka might be better. I have him, too and prefer him as a pure cm.

    His 99 composure helps getting the ball from the back forward

    He is still in my team. Very precise at tackling and winning the ball.

    I have De Rossi and played against a Squad With TOTS Goretzka. Bossed him the whole game and didnt see him. De Rossi is better!

    He's good but Andre Almedia at CDM is another level, for around 50k you cannot find better as a CDM..

    I see some people say prime Rijkaard is better but I have used Rijkaard for the past 17 games and Rossi is better.

    People still to this day are fond of conjuring hyperbolic tripe to justify 250k spent on De Rossi :joy:.

    Let's call a spade a spade: he was never effective in this game, okay.

    Flashbacks have actually been one of the very few positive things this year imo. Still have Ibra, Nani and Bradley in my starting lineup.

    Yeah I checked the players with the same work rates like DDR and he was up there as a cdm with those stats. But DDR with his 99 composure is one of a kind I think

    Nah DDR is so good he surprises me a lot. Don't just judge him via his low pace and agility. Never thought that I paid too much on him. He has 600 games for me and is still running.

    Never used PIM and Prime Vieira but besides him I second your opinion.

    He just wins the ball back and shoots some goals from time to time.
