    All great chronicles must come to an end. Ive purchased Ruud Gullit for 4.1M.

    First game he was class but not as clinical as I’d like.

    Might buy a PIM striker in the next few weeks and just stick with them till the end of the game as an RTG of sorts.

    Nah, so many of them look great, gotta try them all

    Exactly how I feel. I have about 30 PM Icons on the watch list just waiting to see what one I pick.

    Who are you looking for @Reus ? I think my new striker will be PM Raul, PM Del P, PM Socrates, PM Dalglish, or boring old 95 Pele. Can't pick which one I want to try first though.

    Pretty much all of them

    Especially all the mid/low tier strikers and cams who now look way better

    Likes of shevchenko, Larsson, crespo, baggio etc etc

    89 blanc is the best cb I used so far in this fifa. Even though he has ‘only’ 79 pace, he’s most of the time in the right position. Passing is good, pretty agile for a big guy. Can’t recommend him enough. Brought in RTTF Militao next to him since 4 games. Great pairing so far.

    Also wanted to say that 91 Cruyff is much, much better than the 89.

    Could not agree more with both statements.

    Militao rttf and Blanc 89 have been a pair in my team for 500 games.

    I then upgraded Militao to Toty De Ligt which is very, very good as well, and I'd say on par with Blanc. I find them together to be a perfect combo.

    Agree for Cruyff as well. Prime is excellent too, and much more clinical with even better passing, but I feel there may be a bigger difference between 89 and 91 than between 91 and 94.

    Also, I repeat it, but prime Gullit is far superior to mid Gullit. All of his "flaws" are gone. Especially the passing which is superb with prime. Much more clinical too, and just more solid overall defensively. Feels stronger and more present.

    I know Cannavaro has some hype, I get it I like his Prime too, but no way his PM should be almost a mil more than Blancs PM.

    Prime Cannavaro was/is better than prime and mid Blanc for me. Superb.

    only talk about PIMs but Koeman didn't do well in WL... I want to replace him, is VVD NIF still a viable option? or is there an icon better than VVD? I need some good passing besides pace and defense...

    Any love for Prime Desailly? Defence and strength, aggression combo looks great, good height and pace only downside is agility and balance and passing...

    I see lots of love for Blanc and Cannavaro just wondering whether or not to spend my 1.2m on Desailly or not

    I've used those big boys & I couldn't say I love him no. Not compared to the alternatives. He's very good no doubt but...Canna - incredible positioning, jumping, agility & quicker than his stats suggest...Blanc - smooth & the mid is cheap & arguably as good as the prime...Rio - just a big thug really. Using Canna & Rio atm & it's the best combo for me so far. In comparison Desailly didn't seem to excel in any particular area. With the others you can see what you're getting for the coins.

    I'll give Cannavaro a go what chem would be best? Shadow for the big pace boost or anchor for the slight pace boost and strength, aggression and jumping boost?

    Good choice I reckon. Either of those chem styles will do. I use shadow. Don't worry you can afford it lol

    Raul 92 had the best finishing (on the left) in the game for me. I used him for around 20 wl (first 20, so basically the easier ones) and o my god. His finishing was out of this world.

    I didn’t like his first touch and his right foot. People now he’s left and defend that side, but his right foot didn’t do it for me.

    Problem with Gullit is that on PS4 he’s almost 4m more expensive. I really can’t afford that unfortunately. 90 Gullit did amazing this weekend. Only used prime in 18. Absolute animal. I used TOTY de Ligt with VVD and that pairing got me E1. 1.1m atm at Ps4, not ready to spend another 400k on defence. Right now I spent like this:
    Attack: 4m (Neymar, UT 90 Mbappe, 91 Cruyff, 85 Osimhen (sold otw yedder))
    Midfield: 5 mil. (90 Gullit, FB Paulinho. May get Kante again soon. Not sure)
    Defence: 1.8m (toty Robertson UT, 89 blanc, rttf Militao, Zambrotta UT, ter stegen)

    Osimhen Will ofc be replaced. Not sure by who though. Yedder seemed too weak and I want Neymar and Cruyff in the middle.

    Bought prime moments barnes and lineker.

    Lineker is very very good, agile, with the best finishing Ive seen. I don't need 4 star skills so it's good. Fully can recommend this card to my poor forumers as myself.

    Barnes I am not sure. he was godly in draft, but I think I need more games to tell. Has potential for sure.

    Primes brought back fun in the game for me.

    Only used him in draft so hard to tell but his tackling is so clean , felt really smooth just got exposed with pace a few times but that could be down to my bad defending 🤣

    Yes. Take Blanc. The 89 is pretty much as good as the prime too.
