Packed Thiago FB untradable. Is he better than EoE Rooney or SPOTM Bruno (both currently in my team) as CM (4321) or CAM (4231)?

    No, I packed him last Thursday and sold straight away for 730k. I'm still using red 89 Bruno in midfield as a b2b mid, Rooney is OK but really he's best as a st

    Thiago before SPOTM Bruno every day of the week. Rooney is better in attack but Thiagos passing and short quick movements is just superb

    Some people might disagree with me but midfielders with M/M work rate are dead unless you're prime / PIM Zidane.

    Thiago is good very good

    more fun than Rooney and Bruno...

    More effective? Probably not. You need to use get forward instructions on him due to his M/M workrates.

    I had him tradable and since doing Vidal was so close dropping him and selling but lucky enough to pack him untradable via player pick.

    So can use both without having coins tied up.

    Really really fun card tho if you can ultize his burst of speed and skills.

    I agree. It ruins them. Also on most players apart from centre backs. I’d take medium low on Cam and and can get away with a striker but it’s not my preference at all

    I’ve just pulled him out Now it was hard but he’s so tough to link mate.

    I’m sat on 2.6 mill and because off Rooney I’m struggling. Might have to just do it and remove Him.

    M/M doesn't ruin cards, especially ones that you are going to play as a CM or CDM. If you are talking CM and CDM, I prefer Thiago to both of those guys (I've always hated Bruno and his first touch, it is awful at times).

    Loved him but I had to it limited me so much. Now my team is free lol

    Can always bring him back he is 93 rated and will last the whole game cycle

    Not having high defensive workrates absolutely kills a CDM IMO

    Its everyone's biggest complaint with TOTY Kimmich. He basically doesn't track back on defense at all from the CDM spot unless you control him and take him back.

    Medium or low defensive workrate on a CDM is one of the worst things you can have on your entire team in regards to workrates. There's no reason dealing with that. You need your CDM to be as inclined as possible to track back automatically, not always feel like you need to babysit him and put him in the right position.

    I have all three in my team (untradeable Thiago) and he is not as good as either. I have Rooney as LAM in order to get Thiago in AMC but Thiago will be SBC'd eventually.

    He is very good, just not as good as the other two.

    As expected from a United fan but I totally agree with you ;)

    Rooney is the best. Thiagos passing is far superior, but his work rates are pretty bad. Bruno is the bottom of the list for me.
