Anyone done the sbc and care to share a review?

Very much considering doing the sbc and have plenty of fodder to get the price down.

    After 8 games he has 8 goals in WL.

    Without 2 early RQs from opponent he would possibly have had a couple more goals.
    Only a small 'test' amount of games, but so far.....
    His shooting is quite spectacular. Really powerful shot.
    Very fast and smooth on the ball.
    Links up well, and on a 1-2 he can dart through on goal.

    So far a joy to use.

    I packed TOTS Lazzari, Discard IF, 2 85s and an 84 from packs as well. Saved/made a nice chunk of coins off his total.

    I used a fair few 'unused' players in club and about 150k. Which I made nearly half of it back selling some of my packed stuff.

    Thanks @LeonidasJB for the review, I’m tempted to do him for the strong link to Nainggolan and play them CDM and CAM in 4222

    Would you mind updating this when you’ve played some more games too?

    Had a tots mertens since 17 and he's never disappointed, rocket shot, rapid, dribbling is a dream plus the high/low means he's always where I want him to be

    Can't recommend him enough as long as you like small agile players

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone get lower than a 9..

    But very tempted to do Mertens myself. I’ve always had him every year. Would be interested to see how people find him

    Did him with around 300k, really wanted to use him as a striker - tried 1 game and everyone were on top of him
    he is super weak vs VVD and other top CBs

    moved him to cam and eusebio back to striker
    6 WL games he got 5 goals and 3 assists, he feels unstoppable when moving the ball forward

    I play him at St in a 433.
    Links up excellent and scores plenty.

    Currently sitting at 9 games 13 goals, all this WL.

    If you're trying to run through VVD with him, obviously it won't work. Play around VVD and Mertens will get away every time.

    That’s why I am tempted as his cards has never disappointed. Gonna roll him in my second team anyway with Cruyff and Eusebio and get TOTS Nain.

    I play him at Str. H/L is perfect because he stays in an attacking position.

    After the Upgrade SBCs.
    Do a few and see if you can get some of the players needed to help with the SBC.

    The SBC looks quite expensive when you compare him to 95 Gomez who’s 500+ k now?

    He gets more space at CAM. At striker he can get smothered by CBs.
