    90 Butra or 87 Dalglish?

    Skill moves is not an issue for me.

    Have tried petit, ballack and blanc beside zidane as cm in 4-4-2. Yesterday i tried William Carvalho. What a card! He is at least as good as anyone one of them. His stats lying. Hidden gem and most underpriced player in the game.

    Have about 1.2m for an ICON CM. Not sure who the best option is. 86 Gullit? Will be CM in 4411 with SIF Nain beside him.

    Alternatively could sell RTTF Dybala again and get 91 Kaka CAM and 88 Veron as the CM.

    Any other CM’s you’ve enjoyed let me know guys.

    I'm using 86 Barnes as left CM in my 4411 team. He's very good for me.

    Hear good things about 86 Gullit though.

    I'm guessing because of the workrates? 90 has better stats except pace.

    Barnes I’m not gonna use just because I will get his Prime when it’s out. Blanc I hadn’t considered tho. Could be a v good shout considering I also change to 352

    You can't go wrong with Diggers price.

    A couple from me:

    Seedorf 85 - very good box to box CDM/CM, no obvious weaknesses, incredibly strong and fast, great at bursting into the box and tracking back to muscle players off the ball. Play him at RCM in a 433-4 alongside OTW Frenkie.

    Zanetti 92 - so glad I took this guy from icon swaps, what a card. So good on and off the ball. Surprisingly wins a few headers despite his jumping, guess it's because he has good aggression. I'm tempted to use Engine on him to boost the agility and max out his crossing which is already fantastic. Absolutely an end game card.

    Plus, both of those in my team allows me to start Storyline Politano at RM which is a bonus.

    After more than 100 games with Maradona 91 in Division Rivals/FUT Champs. It is time to write a small review, and at the same time compare Maradona with another Argentinian: Leo Messi

    Team:
    b28eab064514bbd0934984285f1c5b23.png

    He plays ST in 41212(2) with Neymar and Messi in CAM.

    Speed: 9/10
    He is very very fast, his stat in pace is real. When he takes the depth, it is difficult for the opponent to come back. Compared to Messi, he is slightly faster but Messi looks faster than his card suggests.

    Shooting: 7.5/10
    Excellent longshot, but in the box you feel his lack of shot power. I also do not feel his 92 curve, and his 89 finishing. It is true that the goalkeepers are incredible this year but I would rather shoot with Neymar or Messi than with Maradona. Messi is much better in finishing 1vs1 or even finess, it's very simple with Messi.

    Passing: 9/10
    Excellent passer, he can play all positions in attack. Messi/Maradona, both are well above average. Short pass, long pass... it's a joy to play football with these players.

    Dribbling: 9.5/10
    Not even need to perform skills, his ball control is enough to eliminate the opponent. The ball literally sticks his feet. It's very very exciting and it's meta this year. Messi excels just as much in this area, but advantage to Maradona who has 5* in skills.

    Physical: 7.5/10
    He is much more resistant than his card suggests, not least because of 91agility/98 balance that makes him stay very well on his legs against defender who is trying to defend on him. Messi is also difficult to take the ball from him, it is difficult to choose who is the most physical.
    Obviously it's not a tank either, sometimes Maradona will get destroyed but overall it did not pose me a problem quite the contrary.

    3* WF vs 4* WF:
    Messi has 4, Maradona has 3.... And in the big games, it makes the difference especially when Maradona's shooting is not as good. When you shoot with the right foot, the shot is not often dangerous and as good players know how to defend, they do everything to take Maradona on his right foot.

    Fortunately, Maradona's dribbles are incredible which allows you to get to his left foot most of the time, but it's still a big problem especially against a Messi who, left foot or right, no matter, it's often goal. Big advantage to Messi on this point.

    Positioning: 9/10
    Maradona has an excellent positioning and especially thanks to his H/M, which Messi does not have. He constantly makes calls in depth, combined with his speed and technique it often makes the difference. It's a big point of Maradona.
    Messi, meanwhile, will more often ask for the ball in the feet. It's not a flaw, it's a different style.

    In the big games, who's the best ? Maradona or Messi ?
    Well... It's Messi who is most effective in big games against very good opponents because if the opponent manages to contain Maradona on his right foot, he will be put in trouble and with Maradona, you have to have 3 or 4 shots to score a goals, 1 or 2 for Messi. In big games, it really makes a difference.

    Conclusion:
    Excellent player, incredibly fun but has flaws that prove important in difficult matches. If you were to buy an Argentinian, try playing with Leo Messi instead !

    Great on the ball, fantastic shot, very good passing, decent physicals and the tiniest bit slow as a harsh critique.

    I’m also thinking about an icon cm in a 442 next to Allan. Was thinking 88 seedorf? He looks like a beast and I want a more attacking option with his work rates too. Barnes M/M don’t think will suit me in a 442

    88 seedorf is my max budget too btw

    It’s my midfield atm, I have a relationship of hate/love with Seedorf. Sometimes is absolutely magical, sometimes fail a really simple choices. But I’m not see a player like him with the price range. I’m thinking maybe screen Firmino
