    Who will be better as CM/CDM in 442 or 4231:
    Baby Blanc or Scream Firmino?

    Anyone used them both?

    been saying it, he's absurdly good. once he gets going there's no stopping him. and then 10 seconds later he's making a last ditch tackle on your goal, you're like wait whaaaaa

    Sell Neymar to fund 88 Overmars and 87 Sar?
    Overmars will play as a striker next to 89 Van Basten in a 3-5-2.

    Overmars (Neymar) - Van Basten
    Litmanen
    Bale Semedo
    Vidal - De Jong OTW
    Telles - Pique - Militao
    Oblak (Van der Sar)

    The only thing that keeps me from saying a full YES is: Neymars 5* skills and his 94 composure. But that nostalgia as being an Ajax fan..

    Advices please?! :smiley:

    Overmars 88 with Deadeye gives him almost no weaknesses apart from that 5* skills and maybe 84 composure or some other dribbling stats where Neymar obviously excels in.
    Or how do you see it? Thanks for your input anyhow!

    Used 88 Overmars over the weekend and I really didn't think he was anything special. While he is rapid, his shooting and passing is rather average, especially compared to someone like Neymar, and him missing 5* skills is a huge downside. You could get scream Adama and get the same output as Overmars

    It’s the dribbling mate. Overmars is a similar style player but just worse. Even if Neymar was 3* skills, he’d still be better.

    My head hurts just thinking about doing another Icon grind 😂 I honestly would probably do something cheap like Moore at CB (thinking of building an all-England team)

    Anyone used 89 Cruyff? Any reviews on him?

    He seem way overpriced which is my concern.

    Just bought him and i play him in st! Dribbling is nice and his shots are crazy!

    I might be crazy but I think I’d rather have that Alberto instead of Desailly even if they cost the same amount of tokens. That Alberto card is elite IMO.

    Hypothetically if that was correct, I’d deffo take Alberto or Nedved.

    Guys i need you to convince me to do or not to do a crazy idea i ve been entertaining for a few days. Now it will seem crazy at first but read it entirely before judging.

    I am considering strongly to buy mid Best for a CM position (and as a wide cam, see below). I play 41212(2) and very often too 42222. Have Neymar as my cam with Mbappe and CR7 as my two ST (both first owners). I thus need a RW (as Neymar is LW so have to start with wingers for chem) and since i got my 3 forwards my RW/RM will play CM. Currently have IF Naingo.

    Now. Unlike most RW, best does not have 36 defense but 57. My two other mids are very defensive (mid Petit and Allan rttf). With a sentinel, Best still has 90 pace 90 shooting and 93 dribbling but gets 68 def and 77 phys. 68 def is more than pogba or de bruyne who are often played as cm, especially pogba. Would also allow me to have one of my 3 mids very attacking.

    Last but not least, when switching to 4222 which i do so often, almost every game, i have two insane wingers (wide CAMs) with neymar and Best (can even put mbappe on the wing and Best ST).

    I know it sounds crazy, but given the above, is it really ?

    Thanks for reading and extremely interested in your opinions.

    Edit: just meant to add he d be covered (Best as a CM on the right) by prime zanetti as a RB and mid Petit as a CDM with cover wings instruction.

    Why not Base Best ? He has great stamina to play at CM

    Mate thats a great idea. Thanks. Do you find the whole idea crazy or not really ?

    Not really. Any pacy players with good stamina will work well at CM. That’s how the game works unfortunately.

    I've been using 88 Best as a CM next to Gattuso in 442 and he's been exceptional. Awesome attacking runs and decent stamina.

    Good pairing overall

    i need help. Im 2 tokens off Rio who would partner RTTF Gomez, however, i sort of want 87 Carlos Alberto at CB next to him eventually, a brute on one side like Gomez, and the agile CB Capita on the right, which means getting Rio locks my 2 CB positions. Should i grind a bit more and get Zanetti at RB despite having FB Piszcek and just use NIF Militao next to RTTF Gomez for now? or is it a waste and rio + gomez will be good enough with FB Piszcek too

    Similar position to you, 2 tokens needed for Rio... zero motivation to complete them. Personally getting Rio so I can be done with icon swaps and to complete my cbs for the year
  • Anybody here used middle Nakata? Can he work like an attack minded CM in a 4 4 2? Thanks in advance!

    Yeah ima say f it and get Rio. Rio and Gomez are more than good enough for now and I can buy 88 seedorf as my CM next to Allan. Was thinking a cheaper option like Essien but I think I need seedorf’s attacking abilities more
