PIM Socrates...what a card!

Just got one. 10 games later I've found my new favourite card of the year. He's so agile and quick, but is a brick wall. 21 goals and 17 assists from CAM and in delayed gameplay.

Honestly I'm so shocked by how broken it is. Didn't expect it at all, I just wanted to give him a try cause I wanted a tall strong CAM.

10/10 card.

    I used him last year and besides Eusebio he was my favorite player- used his baby and mid this year and was too clunky for me

    Used his prime last year for 200 games.. Then pulled his mid from sbc... Played over 600 games with him too..

    Don't feel like trying him out again this year but arguably he's much better last year when headers are included in the meta.

    I bought him a while back and still have him. Frustratingly though I paid 2.55k PS4 and a week later he was 400k less 😤

    He is excellent though. Karma paid me back when I packed Birthday Lacazette yesterday however 😎

    Yeah he's amazing. I'm playing him as a striker cause I think his High/Low workrates make him perfect for a striker.

    I thought he is clunky base on stats? Surprised that people say he is agile?

    Given his size he is quite agile. Don't expect him to dribble like Messi but he can definitely dribble.

    He has 87 agility, so that's not bad. Disadvantage is that he is so big.
    Clunky players are big players with low agility.
    His balance is very low, but considering his strength and height, balance doesn't matter

    how is he up front? used his baby but finding him too slow at turning at this point in the game. Also his size seems to mean he takes an age to get a shot off (even though it is good when he does)

    Thought I'd respond to this than start a new thread.

    Picked him up on the weekend and he is fantastic. Averaging a goal a game so far upfront which for me is impressive as the goals are usually spread out. At the moment him and ss Messi are grabbing the bulk.

    He is quick, agile enough and both feet have rockets in them. Scored from some ridiculous angles which is fifa but I've been surprised by him.

    Usually end up with a Brazilian team with prime r9 and Co, at the moment for me he's doing just as good a job.

    Put engine on mine, pace feels fine, because of his frame even with a hunter I'd doubt he'd be blitzing past everyone.

    Instead you get a nice boost to the pace dribbling and passing, good for cam or St. Just wanted him to feel responsive and not clunky as others of his size do and for me he feels fine.

    Socrates is weird for me.

    Tried his pim as cam and he couldnt do anything except shoot, kept losing the ball and felt really clunky.

    Then I packed his mid untradeable and decide to try him as cm and hes been great. Still a bit clunky but doesnt notice it as much since he gets more space to operate in.

    I agree with that been playing him for 2 full WL now not sure why others pim Socrates is being described as strong. Mine just collapse so frequently whenever defender body him from behind even though I hold the shield button his shots with both feet are rockets though no doubt.

    His prime card was outstanding for me.

    Really agile, held the ball so well, and could shoot and his passing was brilliant

    Been tempted to try his pim card but I don't want to sell two players for one but

    Bday di Maria and if Ronaldo

    HE is alright, Just wait for few games Specially WL games around Gold. I don't know may be rest of my team around him is better. For CAM position base ADP was the best thing happened to me this year on Base icon pack. I have tried Pele (91,95) Bergkemp Mid and Prime, Socrates all versions, Zola, Dinho baby and mid, FB Griezmann, End of the day I still love my baby ADP somehow.
