Having an icon midfielder helps so much with Links. But Zanetti seems just the beter card even if you play him CDM.

I plan on playing either of them CDM in a 4231 which one will I use longer?

    I have the same issue. Leaning towards gerrard for the easier links. But as you say Zanetti appears the better player.

  • Gerrard! yeah sure Zanetti is way more solid defensively (as he should obviously) but with that massive difference in shooting (in short Zanetti's non existent scoring capabilities) he can never be the better card over Gerrard as a midfielder.

    I play Zanetti at RB and I am yet to meet someone who has tore him apart making me regret the choice. I imagine him and someone like Kante would be world class in the middle

    Took Zanetti. Fixes the Serie A RB problem and has the stats to go into cdm if needed.

    Wing backs don't come into the game as much when you compete against good players. They don't run down the wing like the previous FIFAs. Having players with great passing who can build play from the back and provide offensive options at the edge of the box are the keys to winning. Zanetti is hyped but what's the point of moving a RB to the CDM? Doesnt that tell you the RB is not as important or people wouldn't be getting him for that?

    Just played a fut cham match with gerrard at Cam. 2 down and he sparked a comeback with toko ekambi with 2 goals 2 assists. I love his burst into box. I won at penalty at last goal scored and decided by gerrard. I know zanetti is better stats but having an hard grinded icon always involve in goal is more enjoyable.

    Im playing him as a CM in a 4141. He just does everything for me. His passing and positioning is amazing. He can finish well on his right foot. The only downside is his left foot. I think he should be played as a CM or a CDM that is expected to go forward. He is wasted if you tell him to stay back imo.

    Get Sissoko and play him in that boring formation of 1 depth and drop back 👍

    @protzbischof

    So he should suit me perfectly as I would play him in a posession based 4411 in the right CM spot next to OTW De Jong.

    That's a perfect combo.

    Zanetti has been world class for me. Anyone that attacks down the left just gets hunted down and immediately stopped. People say right backs dont have much impact but people run down the wings all the time trying to cut back and pass across goal. I think people just try to convince themselves that Zanetti isnt the best choice when deep down they know he is.

    Maybe or is it the other way around? Lol :)

    So Gerrard is it the for me. 2 more useless tokerns left then. I doubt I will do the Suad battles grind to get Schmeichel on top of Gerrard. And I also have 85 Lehman untradeable, who is horrible, but at least gives green links to german CB, while schmeichel links to Kjaer, Christensen and Vestergard :smile: So unless they give out a RTTF Christensen for free..... he is useless
