How is he at this stage of the game as a CAM? Worth the 700k?

    Epic- I really like him, but he definitely isn't your 5'6 Messi type player. Plenty agile for a big man and a rocket on both foot for a shot.

    Yes 100%

    Agile, great shot, 5*WF, great passing, he's one player that seems to get involved in everything and is a.menace in intercepting, tackling due to his size and strength

    Currently using his prime since I got him from icon sbc, but used his pim for awhile.

    Very unique player

    fully support this. He can just as well play as a striker which is very nice to have in your team. I sold him twice and bought him three times now. Wont leave my team no more unless something really weird happens

    That's him and marcelo for me.

    Marcelo SS is also a unique player for me I just keep going back to him, can play CM,cam, RM, LB,RB,cdm

    Same with socretes somehow end up going back so happy I got him from icon sbc, he's played CM,CAM, ST even tried him outside and does the job but far better centrally.

    Favourite player by a mile and complete bargain, incredible CAM, finishing is amazing and all round game is great. Have had the coins to upgrade loads of times but he is unstoppable for me

    Lol thing is he doesn't... Even in poor gameplay I don't have this issue with him.

    He has 5* WF and 92+agility 99 dribbling, comp, ball control.

    When you compare someone like tots benzema who has better agility and balance is nowhere near as agile as socretes prime,moment.

    Yeh totally agree, I had him for a good while and he defintely doesnt turn like the titanic. One of those players that defies the lack of balance on the ball.

    The only reason i sold him was because, despite I think 87 strength, he was always getting knocked off the ball. With that low balance, if a 99 strength defender barged into him, for me he was falling over. Because he is so big and had decent strength, I kept wanting to use him to hold people off like a target man, but it just wasn't working.

    That aside, I had so much fun using him rocketing shots with either foot, what a guy.

    you never used him, did you ? He is abig guy, so yeah, he will not be as fast as Neymar / Yedder etc, but he is still faster than a lot other 'meta' players.

    I did the PIM sbc last year and he stayed in my team until the end. Have only used the loan one we got earlier this year in the odd WL match and I just couldnt get on with him tbh. He was alright but I preferred nif pogba at the time for that role in my team.

    hmmm I feel totally different. If anyone is clunky, its Pogba this year.. But, I also feel that for some people some players work, and for others they do not :)
    I also really like Jovic SH card, which probably also is not for everyone!

    I got the prime from prime icons sbc and he’s transformed my team. Play him striker in a 2 striker formation and he’s been amazing for me. Much better than I expected. Would love to buy the PIM but seems a waste when I have prime untradeable

    The only sub 4 mil (xb) icon attacker that works between the other 2 for me. So that includes prime Eusebio. Nuff said :)

    Cool, interesting. I was gunning for PIM Kaka but still a little light on coins. Maybe Socrates is a decent alternative!

    It is while the moment is incredible. His prime is just fine and untradable in your case.

    And since putting him back in my squad I had the most fun WL I've had for while.

    442 in game, Sancho and marcelo wide, soc and Nani up top perfect combo
